The countdown to “Breaking Dawn” is truly under way, and evidence of the excitement for the last “Twilight” flicks is popping up all over the place. In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, Twi-hards are getting an in-depth look at the films, the first of which opens later this year.
“We shot everything — whether it’s the lovemaking or the childbirth — as potent and powerful as it can be,” director Bill Condon explains in the new issue. “It will be interesting to see whether there will be people who think it too disturbing for this universe.”
Of course, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson star in some of the most anticipated scenes in the upcoming movies. One of those is the long-awaited sex scene between Bella and Edward, stills of which hit the Internet , much to the dismay of those involved with making the film. “It feels like a real love scene, not necessarily vampire-y, which is good,” Stewart said.
Fans are also eager to see how Bella’s painful birth scene will be played out. “It’s funny because when [the PG-13 issue] comes up, everybody thinks it’s all about the sex,” the actress said. “The birth is really effective, and I’ve heard it really hits you in the face. But what could it have been? It could have been shocking and grotesque, because that’s how it was written in the book. … I would have loved to have been puking up blood.”
Mostly, though, audiences will be excited to see the “Breaking Dawn” wedding scene , the moment that leads to all those others. “It was one of the coolest things that I’ve done,” Stewart recalled. “There was a certain point when I walked on set, and I saw everyone from the entire cast sitting there in the pews, about to do their bit. And it was just so perfect for me in that moment. It was so emotional in such a real way. I literally felt like thanking them for coming.”
The magazine also features some exclusive photos from the movie. Those shots include intimate moments between Jacob and Bella, photos of the Denali clan and one of Jacob running through the rain. (With a shirt on — sorry, ladies!)
“Everybody is always complaining to me that I don’t have to wear the contacts, I don’t have to wear the white makeup or wear wigs and all that stuff. And I’m like, ’I’m the one in the freezing rain and cold not wearing a shirt!’ ” Taylor Lautner says in the issue. “I paid my dues in ’New Moon’ and ’Eclipse.’ ”
Sure, Bella and Edward have some big moments in these flicks, but Jacob also meets the love of his life, their baby girl, Renesmee . “There were many times I walked up to Stephenie [Meyer] and asked her, ’What exactly is imprinting?’ ” Lautner said. “It’s still a very confusing thing for me, so don’t ask.”
