Those lucky Italians. At one of two sold-out presentations at the Rome Film Festival, hungry Twilight fans were treated to 15 minutes of footage from the upcoming vampire romance starring soon-to-be-superstars Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson, and full scene descriptions have now made their way online.

Twilight is only three weeks away from becoming the smash hit of the season (Fandango reports presales of Twilight comprise 43% of all ticket sales, and the film doesn’t open until November 21). Much of this anticipation comes from the legions of Twilight fans — called Twilighters, or even Twi-hards — who’ve fallen in love with author Stephenie Meyer’s four-book series about a tragic romance between a teenage girl and a vampire.

Based on Meyer’s first book, Twilight introduces high school student Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), newly relocated to the rainy town of Forks, Washington, as she meets and falls in love with a dangerously attractive boy named Edward Cullen. The only complication? Edward happens to be a 108-year-old vampire trapped in the body of a teenager.

Italian outlet Bad Taste was present among hundreds of screaming fans in Rome, and have posted detailed recaps of the two scenes shown, a third behind-the-scenes clip, and the cast and filmmaker Q&A that followed. While one of the two clips was the previously-released ballet studio fight, another 8-minute scene made its worldwide debut. In the scene, Edward brings Bella home to meet his family, a coven of “vegetarian” vampires who abstain from their natural impulses to live, undetected, among humans. He gives Bella a tour of the Cullen house, ending up in his bedroom, where he launches himself from a window into the neighboring forests to demonstrate his superhuman vampire skills. The scene ends with Edward at his piano, playing the long-anticipated “Bella’s Lullaby” (written by composer Carter Burwell.) Click here to read more from Bad Taste.
