The movie opens on [[Bella Swan|Bella]]'s 18th birthday. She wakes up from a dream in which she sees herself as an older woman, whom she initially thinks is her grandmother, [[Marie Higginbotham]]. Bella celebrates her birthday with [[Edward Cullen|Edward]] and the rest of the [[Olympic coven|Cullens]]. Whilst at the Cullen household where [[Alice Cullen|Alice]] has organized a party, she receives a papercut whilst trying to open a present from Esme and Carlisle. As [[Jasper Hale|Jasper]] hasn't been away from human blood as long as the rest of the Cullens, he can't control his instinct to drink her blood.
Edward is forced to protect her by shoving her out of the way and then doing the same to Jasper. Bella landed into a table full of glass, causing her arm to bleed copiously. The Cullens can't control their instinct to consume human blood and start to lose control, except for Carlisle who treats her arm. After this event, Edward realizes it's too dangerous for Bella to be around his family of vampires and tells her he doesn't love her any more and disappears. Bella, who is heartbroken, lies on the ground and does nothing. After months of seeing Bella in a zombie-like state, [[Charlie Swan|Charlie]] scolds her and threatens her that if she continues, he will send her to live with Renée.
[[File:Sad_guy_Edward.jpg|thumb|250px|Edward leaving Bella.]]
Bella starts to lighten up and decides to watch a movie with her friend Jessica. It is here that Bella approaches a group of strange men she confuses with the thugs Edward saved her from in ''[[Twilight Movie|Twilight]]'' and takes a ride on the back of one of their motorbikes.
Images of Edward tried to stop her from doing so but she refused to listen. After that episode, Bella realizes she starts seeing very realistic images of Edward when she's in danger. Bella seeks comfort in her best friend Jacob Black, in which eases her pain over losing Edward. Bella starts to realize that Jacob is acting differently, and becoming increasingly dark and violent and comes to the conclusion he is hiding a dark secret.
[[File:JacobSave.jpg|thumb|left|250px|[[Bella]] is saved by [[Jacob]].]]
Bella later goes to the meadow, where she meets Laurent. He informs her that Victoria wishes to kill her, in revenge for Edward killing her mate, James. Laurent tries to kill Bella, saying it will be better than it would be if Victoria did, but the shape-shifters arrive in time to chase down Laurent and kill him. Jacob later informs Bella that Victoria is hunting her and that they chased her all the way to the Canadian border, where she jumps off a cliff, in which is the same cliff that Bella jumps off, to see a hallucination of Edward again.
It is here where Bella notices Victoria swimming towards her, and in a fit of panic, knocks herself out for a short while, before Jacob saves her and informs her that [[Charlie]] and Billy's friend [[Harry Clearwater]] has died of a heart attack. Despite the warmth and closeness they feel towards each other, a quick succession of events later that evening try to tear Bella and Jacob apart. Jacob drives Bella home, only to discover that [[Alice]] has inexplicably turned up there; he recoils from her presence and flees to La Push to regroup. However, he soon returns to apologize to Bella; they nearly kiss when the phone interrupts them. When Jacob answers, tells the caller that Chief Swan was arranging a funeral. Having received cryptic information, Edward assumes the funeral is for Bella, thinking she had committed suicide. Grief-stricken, he departs in order to meet with the [[Volturi]], and Bella and Alice rush to try to stop him.
[[File:Jane_of_the_Volturi.jpg|thumb|250px|The Volturi.]]
They both travel to Volterra, Italy to try and save Edward. The Volturi refused to kill Edward due to the fact that Aro thought it would be a waste, so Edward decides he needs to provoke them by exposing himself as a vampire to the humans. Bella arrives on time to save Edward, but not before long Felix And Demetri arrive and order them to speak to Aro. Alice arrives to try and cool things down, before Jane turns up to see what was taking so long. Edward, knowing Jane's ability, instantly gives up and does as she says without hesitation.
[[File:Aro-caius-alec-new-moon-volturi.jpg|250px|thumb|left|Aro, Caius and Alec.]]
After much conversation with the Volturi, they decide that Bella is too much of a liability and Aro orders Felix to kill her. Edward jumps in to save her and a fight ensues between him and Felix. It's not long before Bella is about to be killed herself, before Alice shows Aro a vision of Bella and Edward, proving the fact that Bella will become a vampire in the future even if Alice has to change Bella herself. Aro allows them to leave to make preparations for the transformation, in which Edward has no plan to follow up. Edward, Bella and Alice leave to travel back to Forks. Here, the Cullens vote on whether Bella should become a vampire. All except Edward and Rosalie vote in favor of Bella becoming one.
Jacob goes to Forks to visit Edward and Bella, where he reminds them that the Cullens and the Quileute wolves have a treaty, which will be broken if the Cullens ever bite a human.
[[File:New-moon-movie-pictures-972.jpg|thumb|250px|Jacob launches.]]
After Bella stops Edward and Jacob from fighting, telling Jacob she loves him but not to make her choose between him and Edward as her answer will always be Edward, Jacob tearfully returns to La Push. Edward asks Bella to let him wait five years, but Bella refuses, so he offers three years and still she refuses telling him it's too long.
In turn, Edward tells her that he will only turn her into a vampire on one condition: she has to marry him first. This movie ends on a cliffhanger with Bella stunned and the question unanswered.

In an interview with ''Entertainment Weekly'', director Chris Weitz said that instead of going with the book's route of having Bella hear Edward's voice, they used a flittering image of Edward.
On September 9, L.A. Times published more than 40 photos taken on the ''New Moon'' set. Some of them give a good impression of what the new film will look like.<ref>[ Photos taken on set (L.A. Times)]</ref>
