An epic finale deserves an epic one sheet, which is exactly what "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" got on Tuesday following a worldwide countdown that culminated in the unveiling of the movie's poster.
Unlike previous key art, Edward (Robert Pattinson), Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) are depicted in motion, charging towards the Volturi during a climactic battle sequence, with the sprawling sky and Forks forest looming behind them. Fans might be surprised to hear, however, that according to one of the film's stars, the whole thing was shot on a stage and not in the snowy mountain wilds.
"I can't wait to see that whole scene; we had to really use our imaginations, because we shot that on a stage," Nikki Reed told MTV News while at the AXE Showerpooling campaign kick-off at USC in Los Angeles. "With these movies in general, we have to [use our imaginations]. With the wolves...there are these big cardboard cutouts that people carry and run with and they say, 'React! Here comes a wolf!' And you look, and there's a man holding a 10-foot wolf."
Despite the rigorous brain calisthenics required of Nikki and her cast mates during the sequence, the actress is optimistic about the outcome.
"I'm really excited to see how this turns out," she added. "I'm sure it will be great."
