Slade explains the "Just keep the window closed" scene

'Eclipse' DVD Countdown: David Slade Teases A Deleted Scene--Our No. 2 Reason We're Thrilled!
There are plenty of "Eclipse" things to celebrate today. First, the soundtrack was nominated for a Grammy, and, second, we have only one and a half days until the DVD hits stores! We've been sounding off on the reasons we're excited for the DVD's release all week (see why we're excited here and here and here), and it was our conversation with director David Slade on Tuesday that got us really pumped for our No. 2 reason: "Eclipse"'s deleted scenes.

Though he couldn't remember too many of the making-of segments, David was passionately involved with the DVD's deleted scenes special feature.

Fortunately for all you Bella and Edward fans, one of the film's cut scenes is a "sweet little moment" between the two. Apparently there was a running argument between the couple throughout the course of the film, but David ultimately decided to cut it from the film.

"We were trying to get the film to a manageable length, to flow really well, and it was like hitting a speed bump. You just felt it every time you hit these scenes," he explained.

The scene that made it to the DVD's special features is one that "closed the argument." Edward is sitting outside Bella's house and is being "kind of a jerk, making certain demands which Edward is like to do throughout all of these films," and Bella finally gets fed up with him. She storms off to her room, locking her window, effectively telling Edward that he is not welcome in her boudoir that evening. But after a moment's hesitation, she unlocks and opens the window. (Aw, we wouldn't be able to keep the window closed either, Bella!)

If there's one thing we can never get enough of, it's lovely little Bella and Edward moments, though we can do without them fighting. We're glad that David chose to add his own commentary to all these scenes to explain why he cut them. I'm sure I'm not the only person out there who might have been okay with sitting through a three-hour-long version of "Eclipse."
