hey guys! Twilight on Twitter has updated with a new BD poster! and a confirmation that the BD trailer will be on the MTV Movie Awards and IMDB.com June 5th!
Last week, the President of Riofilme, the group which aided production on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 in Brazil this winter, shared a fragment of insight about what the first trailer for the film – expected to debut at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards on June 5th – might contain.
According to him, fans can expect to see four moments which were shot on location in Brazil. The ones which we know were shot in Brazil include:
- Bella and Edward strolling and kissing in the crowded streets of Lapa
- The two stepping onto a docked boat and taking off for Isle Esme
- Filming inside of Casa em Paraty (“Isle Esme” in the movie)
- Bella and Edward relaxing beachside
- Romance at the waterfall
There were a few others inside the Casa em Paraty location as well, of course.
Most of the official The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 photos released so far seem to be derived from some of the above-listed scenes, as many of you agreed, so it certainly makes sense that the first trailer focus might be on those . . . but what else could it contain?
Of the non-honeymoon stills, all have been wedding-oriented (i.e., the first-look at the Denali Coven, both times at the wedding; Jacob and Aro both reacting to their invitation receipts; and Bella and Alice prepping her make-up and hair). So, it’s certainly conceivable that some of the wedding will be involved in the trailer . . . but probably not too much. The level of reveal for this will likely match what we’ve seen with the stills. Some portions of the wedding (imaginably, the dress, Edward in his tux, the vows, Bella and Jacob’s dance) will probably be reserved for later to serve as a surprise for the film itself. What portions would be unspoilery enough to show on-screen, I have no idea; but I’d be shocked if nothing of the event made it to the first trailer.
As for what else . . .
Well first of all, the split point between Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is, per an old Wyck Godfrey (producer of the Twilight Saga) interview, as follows:
“The first part will cover the wedding, the honeymoon and the birth.” The film ends just before she embarks on her supernatural transformation.
Since we’ve covered one and two already, now on to the birth. Obviously, to get to that point, bases A (the wedding) and B (the honeymoon) would have to be covered. That doesn’t seem to be a problem. Even then, though, a lot of explanation is necessary to get to C (the birth of Renesmee). It might be a stretch to think that could happen in a film’s first trailer. Not to mention, the nature of this moment may be rather graphic. So, I imagine that the subject of Bella’s pregnancy might come into play for the first trailer, but it may not be as large a focus as the other two aspects of Part 1.
Lastly, Part 1 promises a look at Bella’s transformation process. The trailer, however, probably won’t get us there just yet. From what everyone is expecting (the consensus seems to believe there’ll be a flash of her newborn eyes at the very end, cliff-hangering for Part 2), this will be a major lead-in for the second film but the vision of Bella as a new vampire won’t be developed enough in Part 1 to warrant inclusion in the trailer for the film. In other words, Breaking Dawn – Part 1 is about the three things Wyck Godfrey mentioned above, and Part 2 is about Bella’s new life. It would be misleading to infer otherwise.
Same reasoning for Renesmee. Bella doesn’t see the baby until after she has come to from her transformation. There has been some information suggesting a flashforward sequence (like the telling prologues in the book series) might include her, however, but that really has no business being in the trailer.
So, to sum it up: I think we’ll see a glimpse of the wedding – brief but exciting – as well as a glimpse at the honeymoon before we get a hint of the aftermath. We might see the reactions of the Cullens and the Volturi to some of the events as well. Maybe even the humans.
Can you think of anything else that might be in the trailer? I’m attaching the trailers for Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse in the videos section to see if you notice a trend at all.
As explained before, the first trailer for Breaking Dawn – Part 1 is expected to debut at the June 5th MTV Movie Awards. That information comes from (1) the president of Riofilme and (2) history of the Twilight Saga‘s relationship with that show.
i must say this….aww!
Audiences saw a whole new side of Ashley Greene this weekend as her ’80s-set coming-of-age flick “Skateland” rolled into theaters. The 24-year-old actress will continue to keep busy during the latter part of 2011, with movies like “LOL,” co-starring Miley Cyrus, and “A Warrior’s Heart” slated for release. And then, of course, there’s “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ hitting theaters November 18.
When we got on the phone a few months back to talk to Greene about “Skatetown,” she was in the midst of final shoots for the “Twilight Saga” finale and preparing to say goodbye to the cast she’s spent the last four years with.
“It’s fun to go to work every day, but it’s kind of bittersweet,” she said. “It’s sad, because I feel like it’s high school or something. We’ve been doing it for so long.”
Yet Greene considers it a boon to have worked with director Bill Condon on the final installments. “Working with Bill Condon makes it kind of the cherry on top, because he’s so excited and he’s incredible at what he does,” she enthused.
And, lest we forget, the two-part “Breaking Dawn” will roll out over the next couple of years, giving the cast plenty of opportunities to see each other, even as stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner continue to book high-profile projects.
“For two years, we’re going to have these movies coming out and press tours and all that stuff, and premieres. So the nice thing about that is that we know we are going to see each other over the next two years. It’s not as hard to finish out the franchise.”
Poor guy had a bad case of homesickness.
And who can blame him really?
We’ll let Mr. Lutz explain…
“Honestly, it was a long seven months that got longer and longer,” he told me at Britney Spears’ St. Bernard Project benefit. “That’s a long time being away from my home, my friends and my dogs.”
As Lutz fans know, his pooches mean everything to him. “I love my dogs,” he said. “And when you’re in Canada, it’s kind of tough to fly them in and out. Ashley [Greene] did it and that made it even harder for me not to have my dogs there.”
Next up for Lutz is the romantic comedy Love, Wedding, Marriage opposite Mandy Moore, but we have to say we’re most excited about Immortals, an action-packed Greek epic in which he plays Poseidon. “It’s probably my most favorite project,” he said.
And from what we can tell (and have been hearing from people who have seen early screenings, for that matter), the former Calvin Klein underwear model looks hotter than ever wearing, well, not much as the god of the sea.
And yes, it’s that Immortals flick—the one starring Superman-to-be, Henry Cavill. “He’s going to be the best Superman,” Lutz predicted. “He kills it in Immortals as Theseus, and he’s going to kill it as Superman.”
