There is not much left to say about the Twilight-franchise. Pretty much everyone should know the series, whether they like it or not. Lionsgate had an idea for those, who like the story about Edward Cullen and Bella Swan: A triple feature box set including the first three movies in an extended version.

Eclipse includes five minutes of new scenes which again solely revolve around additions to the plot, which might be nice to have for fans. Some of the sequences are deleted scenes that simply were cut back into the flick. The movie does not get any better or worse through this alteration. So far, the extended edition is solely available in the USA.

This is a comparison between the Theatrical Version and the Extended Edition, both released by Summit/Lionsgate.

There are 9 differences:
5 additional scenes/shots in the Extended Edition
4 scenes with alternative/additional footage

The Extended Edition is 284.66 seconds (~ 4:45 minutes) longer than the theatrical version.
8:46 minutes
After Bella left the car, the Extended Edition includes another scene of her and Edward at the front door. Edward says that he wants her to be happy and that he understands if she is mad at him and if she would not want him to come into her room later on. Then follows a cut and we can see Bella closing the window. After hesitating for a moment, she opens it again.
