they were giving the option and they took it because the volvo company wanted to advertise and they wanted to change the car because they wanted a car that reflected edwards mood and him and they thought this color would work better then silver and stephanie said yes i guess so i guess its ok
i hope i answered ur question
I agree with you alli herrera! :)
I love that silver volvo in Twilight!
I just found this quote from CW about the Volvo:
"I've taken a real spanking for this, a lot of heat . . . I'll tell you exactly why: Volvo wanted to give us a new, different car so I didn't want to paint it exactly the same silver color, because then [Twilighters] would be saying, 'Why are they trying to say that it's the same car; it's obviously not.' So, I thought, 'Well, I'll choose a new color!' And I thought I would choose slate black, not a reflective black, because it actually absorbs light and it would reflect the mood and melancholy and depression [of his character]. I know I got it wrong, I apologize for that. But that is my reasoning."
Got it from MTV.
I do like the Volvo XC60 though! lol. But they shouldn't have changed it lol.
Uh, I think I agree with the director with his reasons...I watched eclipse again this morning, and I saw some scenes with Black Volvo and then imagined what if it was sliver...And it was so strange!!! Cause most of the mood in eclipse was not as light, relax as twilight, sliver was too light for most of the scenes which included the Volvo car. It would emphasize the car clearly in this film but the significant thing was not the car, it's their emotions or actions, those people. Yet I hope the color should be the same in the book, I can understand CW's considerations about the film even though he knew he was taking the risks to get lots of doubts from twilighters.
