Here is a video from ClevverTV where they catch you all up to date on the Breaking Dawn movie. The question at the end is actually a good one. To maintain a rating that allows everyone to see Breaking Dawn, which parts do you think they will scale down the most and how? Let me know via our Twitter here!
I personally see it this way:
The Breaking Dawn sex scenes will be kept under the covers, with the odd skin flash, loads of groping, heavy breathing etc. Edward’s struggle to not kill Bella during it will be very evident, but for the first time we will hopefully see him actually getting into it and. They will use an intense score and great camera angles to bring it to life, intensify it all too.
The Breaking Dawnmovie birthing scene – well they aren’t going to make you want to leave the theatre à la Mike Newton (in New Moon) style – heading straight for the toilet. Personally, I don’t want to see too much gore. I’m not queezy, but with the limited film time they have, I can think of better things to fill in the time with. I think this can be done quite tactfully using camera angles, great score, well done sound effects for the cracking/breaking bones, good acting and decent (not overdone) amounts of gore.
Either way, can’t wait! I bet we’re all pumped for seeing the firs Breaking Dawn trailer
Summit Entertainment is clearly gearing up to get moving on “Breaking Dawn,” the final entry in the “Twilight” (which still may or may not be released in two parts). There was a lot of talk over the last week or two about potential directors, with the names Gus Van Sant, Sofia Coppola, Bill Condon and Stephen Daldry all coming up as short-list possibilities. I put those options to a vote last week:
Coppola got 40%,
Van Sant got 27%,
Condon got 18%
Daldry got 15%.
Well I’m here today to make things even more confusing. This isn’t an official possibility on the table for Summit — as far as we know — but a noteworthy filmmaker professed his love for Stephenie Meyer’s vampire series in a chat on the Kid’s Choice Awards red carpet over the weekend: M. Night Shyamalan.
“I would’ve loved to be– I love the series, and Catherine [Hardwicke's] movie, it was one of my favorite movies of that year,” he said. “Really, I thought tonally, it was a perfect movie. I called her up after I saw ‘Twilight’ and was like ‘That was amazing.’ So I’m a big fan.”
Shyamalan just recently worked with “Twilight” star Jackson Rathbone on “The Last Airbender,” a live-action adaptation of the popular Japanese anime series “Avatar: The Last Airbender.” That movie hits theaters this summer, on July 2. Shyamalan is known for frequently screwing with viewers’ heads in hits like “The Sixth Sense” and “Unbreakable”; “Airbender” is a first for him, a big-budget, studio adaptation.
Do you think Shyamalan is a good person for Summit to consider in weighing possible “Breaking Dawn” directors? Do you agree with his assessment of “Twilight” as “tonally” perfect? Would you pick him over the other directors whom we know are in the running?
