We’re a little over a month away from the release of “Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” and in order to keep myself from getting too excited for the final film’s arrival, each week for “Twilight” Tuesday, I’ve been trying to figure out exactly which scenes from the book made the final cut and which scenes director Bill Condon had to leave on the cutting-room floor.
It’s a tough task, because even though we have two films for Stephenie Meyer’s fourth book, the movies would have to be extra-long in order to include everything we fans want. Personally, I’d like a full hour dedicated to Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and getting to know the new vampires better, but that’s probably not going to happen.
However, thanks to a recent chat with star Nikki Reed, we have more evidence that the infamous “dog bowl” scene between Rosalie and Jacob is both faithful to the book and can still hold out hope that it is miraculously edited into the final cut vs. what we heard about it back in July at Comic-Con.
“We shot the dog bowl scene. In fact, we shot it enough times for my head to hurt, because I was smacked in the head with various items that I’m sure at some point will be CGI’d into dog bowls, and at one point it was a rubber dog bowl,” recalled Reed, who has yet to see the final cut of the film. “Taylor [Lautner] is pretty strong; I needed that scene to end up in there. [But] I never know what’s going to end up in there.
“But here’s what I do know: Things that are not in the movie do end up on the DVD special features section, so that’s good,” she teased.
