The Original: Bella is standing in the school parking lot, seemingly oblivious to the world around her thanks to her iPod and her obsession with Edward.
She doesn’t notice a van that has skidded out of control and is roaring towards her.
With his lightning-fast undead responses, Edward sweeps across the lot, crouches in front of her and stops the van with one hand, denting the surface.
JC Comment: “The actual stunt with Bella and Edward is kind of cool, but it could be bigger. Much bigger.”
The James Cameron Version: A van is speeding towards Bella. Edward screeches into view on a massive Harley. He’s twirling a stake round and round in one hand, no-one knows why.
He outruns the van, swoops Bella off her feet and plonks her behind him on the bike.
Then, still driving, he turns and chucks the stake at the van. It smashes through the windscreen, and the van veers out of control, hitting a wall and exploding.
Edward stops the motorcycle, but never takes his eyes of the wreckage. Something starts to move towards him, and Edward pulls out another stake.
But it’s only a wheel. How did Edward ever think that a wheel was a person or a vampire or whatever? Edward puts the stake back in his pocket.
“I love you Edward,” says Bella.
“I know now why you cry,” Edward replies. They speed off into the sunset.
