* CompletelyDifferentTitle:
** The Swedish titles for the books have nothing to do with time:
*** Twilight = Om jag kunde drömma = If I could dream
*** New Moon = När jag hör din röst = When I hear your voice
*** Eclipse = Ljudet av ditt hjärta = The sound of your heart
*** Breaking Dawn = Så länge vi båda andas = As long as we both breathe
** The Norwegian title for ''Twilight'' is "Evighetens kyss" - the kiss of eternity. The rest of the titles are translated literally.
** The German titles go along the lines of "Bis(s) zum Morgengrauen", which is a pun where one S would mean "till dawn" and two S's would mean "Bite to dawn". The sequels continue the trend with "(Bite) till dusk/noon/etc."
** Similar to the Swedish titles, the French titles also have nothing to do with time:
*** Twilight --> Fascination (Fascination)
*** New Moon --> Tentation (Temptation)
*** Eclipse --> Hésitation (Hesitation)
*** Breaking Dawn --> Révélation (Revelation)

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to [[http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/movie-talk-twilight-that-almost-was.html this article]], ExecutiveMeddling at Paramount was originally planning to turn ''Twilight'' into a far more action-heavy movie -- something of a high school-set version of ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' -- in order to bring in more male viewers. Bella was made into a far more active character (she was written as a track star) who fought back against the vampires, and gets turned into one herself in the first movie. AnyoneCanDie was in full effect, with Bella's dad dying by the end of the movie. A Korean FBI vampire hunter was introduced [[UnfortunateImplications as an antagonist]], and one scene had vampires picking off members of a SWAT team sent into a forest after them. An ExecutiveVeto from Creator/StephenieMeyer put the kibosh on this, and the resulting adaptation by Summit was made far more faithful to the novel.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: Like the FIlm/HarryPotter films, the final film is going to be in two parts. The comparison has not gone unnoticed in newspapers and blogs, who think it's just trying to feed off the fandom-feud by doing so.
* GenrePopularizer: Say what you will about the quality, but it triggered an explosion of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. SturgeonsLaw is in full effect, but some of them are actually quite good. Though a more accurate statement would be that it brought such a genre into the public consequence as there are/were a number of similar series well before Twilight.
** An example would be Literature/VampireAcademy.
** Another is Literature/TheSookieStackhouseMysteries.

** To a much lesser extent, Creator/KristenStewart admits that she doesn't really like Twilight either and it ruined her potential as an actress, but it's also because in general, she doesn't enjoy being famous. However, she doesn't excessively hate it as Pattinson does.
** And completing the trifecta, Taylor Lautner had a few choice words when he found out about imprinting.

** Narrowly averted when TaylorLautner almost lost his role as Jacob Black in ''New Moon''. The director of ''New Moon'', Chris Weiss, was considering recasting Jacob, because he decided he wanted a taller and more muscular actor to play him ([[ExecutiveMeddling the studio producers were ''openly negotiating'' with other actors before the end of filming the first movie]]). Upon hearing this, Lautner immediately hit the gym and [[HeroicBuild apparently never left]]. He gained an insane ''35 pounds of muscle'' to keep his role in the series.
