A Supercut of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – Parts 1 and 2 Exists… But There’s No Release Date

Monday, September 9th, 2013

Just when we think there’s no more news to give, we get more big news. First, the Ultimate Twilight Box Set was announced, and that’s coming out in November. Now, Collider.com has news of a Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn supercut, which is basically a merger of the two films as one big super film, with just some minor changes. During an interview to promote his new movie The Fifth State at the Toronto Film Festival, Collider sat down with Bill Condon and they brought up the Ultimate Box Set. They were not expecting the reveal of such supercut.

Collider: There’s a huge Twilight box-set coming out later this year. Have you done anything for it? Did you contribute anything?
Bill Condon:
Well, I think we did so much for the extended edition of [The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1], I think there’s probably extra stuff on [The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2], although not additional scenes, unfortunately, because that movie is so unbelievably visual effects heavy, it would cost a ton of money to actually create the environment for some of those extra scenes. But, I do have a kind of version of those two movies cut into one movie that is not going to be there, but I hope one day might emerge. I think it would be an interesting experience for those who are really into it.

When you say you have a new version, are there a lot of things different, or is it just one cut?
Condon:
No, it’s just one cut. There are obviously adjustments you have to make and rearranging some of the stuff. Just making it into one seamless thing, making it feel more like the original novel.

Did you do that while editing [The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1]?
Condon:
Yeah, I did it before we shut down the editing room.

This is interesting, I’m surprised that Summit hasn’t come around and said, “Let’s release that as a double feature in select theaters.”
Condon:
Right, yeah. It’d be interesting. Maybe that’ll happen.

Here’s the video if you’re interested:

So while we don’t have a release date in sight, it’s interesting to know that this is an idea that might happen some day.
Would the release in theaters of the two movies as a single one movie be something that interests you?

Robert, Kristen and Mackenzie Talk to Notas Para Ti! Scans and Translation

Monday, October 29th, 2012

More interviews are popping up from Spanish media. As always, we’re working had in bringing you every single one of them. The following interview comes all the day from Mexico, from teen magazines Notas Para Ti, who talked to Rob, Kristen and Mackenzie Foy. Rob and Kristen’s interviews are sadly very brief, but Mackenzie’s interview is longer. Enjoy!

Kristen

Twilight is coming to an end after 5 movies. How do you feel about it?
I’m sad. We were a family, and we actually cried when we finished filming the last scene. But then we celebrated.

Who will you miss the most?
Definitely Taylor. We were together everyday, and now we hardly see each other, but I hope our friendship is not over.

Who would you like to work with next?
I really admire Natalie Portman, and I hope I could film a thriller or an action movie with her. She’s a great actress.

Would you work in a different saga again?

No franchise can match Twilight. I don’t know if I’d ever do another one, but I would like to star in a horror film.

Rob

What do you like most about Edward?
He’s very passionate and honest. I’d love to love like that; Bella is everything to him. I have not falenl as hard as Edward does.

What do you not like about him?
He acts without thinking, and I’m not going to deny that I tend to do that too. I’ll miss being a vampire, because I do relate to Edward, and I know many people don’t believe it but I do like the character.

Who did you get along with the most during filming? With whom did you feel like you had the most chemistry?

We all got along famously, nobody isolated, everybody hung out together. I don’t think anyone hates me.

What’s your favorite Twilight movie?
I love BD1, the wedding was spectacular. Seeing Kristen dressed like a bride was like being in a dream.

Mackenzie

Are you a true Twilight fan?
I’ve seen all the movies and I love them, but I have not read the books, I still see myself as a big fan.

Do you believe in vampires and werewolves?
I loved horror stories when I was little. I like being scared, but I know that stuff is make belief.

How did you prepare to to be Renesmee?
I had to work out a lot, and I did some Tae Kwon Do. My character has superpowers so I had to be prepared.

If you could have one superpower what would you have?
Superstrength like Renesmee sounds kind of cool. I wouldn’t want to fly or read minds, so I’ll keep strength because I can lift stuff and beat up bad guys.

How was your relationship with Rob, Kristen and Taylor?
They’re great people, they’re playful and fun. Rob was like a dad, taking care of me on set. Taylor made me laugh a lot and we played football on set. But who I really had a good time with was with Kristen. One time we got in trouble with our director Bill because we were chatting and we didn’t realize that people were waiting for us to shoot a scene. They were all sweet but they swear a lot.

Who swears the most?
I can’t say!

Are you looking forward to premieres and red carpets?
Yes, I love taking pictures, seeing the fans and wearing fancy dresses.

What do you love the most about being famous?
I don’t think I’m famous. I’m just a girl trying to do what I love. I just want to enjoy it and have fun.

Is it hard coming back to school after being in one of the biggest sagas ever?
It’s hard working and going to school at the same time, but my school has been supportive. My friends won’t stop asking me about Rob, Taylor and Kristen.

What music to you enjoy the most?

I love Taylor Swift and One Direction.

Do you want to be an actress when you grow up?
Sure, but I want to be a director too.

What’s your biggest dream?
Winning an Oscar and directing a movie as big as Twilight.

Breaking Dawn Wedding Choreographer Talks About Robert and Kristen’s Dancing

Monday, July 9th, 2012

In a new interview with BroadwayWorld, choreographer Paul Becker (THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, SUCKER PUNCH, MIRROR, MIRROR) talked about working on Breaking Dawn – Part 1, Rob and Kristen’s wedding scene and dancing, and doing a cameo in the movie.

PC: You appear at the memorable wedding in TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN PART 1, do you not?
PB: [Laughs.] Yes. Actually, it was really funny – as you know, Bill Condon, the director, wrote CHICAGO and so he brought me in to choreograph TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN PART 1 and PART 2. And, so, I showed up on set and we were all having a good time, and, then, when I showed up on set for the last day of filming, where we were doing the big wedding scene, and I go into my trailer and I find there is a suit there. So, I say to the AD, “Why is there a suit in there?” and, she says, “Bill Condon wants you to get into wardrobe.” And, I say, “What?! What do you mean ‘wardrobe’?!” And, so I put on the suit and I go onset and Bill is there and he puts his arm around me and says, “I got you in CHICAGO and now I’m gonna put you in this one.” And, so, he put me in the scene.

PC: How did you get involved with Bill on TWILIGHT in the first place? Was it just the CHICAGO connection?
PB: I’m not sure – we never actually met on CHICAGO, but my girlfriend Sharon Leal was in DREAMGIRLS that he directed so she had known him. I had never met him before TWILIGHT, though. One of the producers called me – I just got a random phone call one day and someone said, “Bill Condon saw your material and he would like to meet with you.” And, so, I was actually filming the TV series HELLCATS at the time, in Vancouver, so I just went over to the TWILIGHT set and I could not believe how hi-security it was – I mean, you could not get on the set!

PC: Even if you were welcome – or invited, as you were?
PB: There were seriously security guards everywhere, but, luckily, my name had been left at the door so I got in.

PC: What was the atmosphere on set like?
PB: Well, I got there and went to the theater that they were shooting in and we all clicked – we just jammed and it all came together right away. I mean, the next day I was working on the film!

PC: That fast.
PB: Yeah – it was a really great experience and they really set up a nice environment for everybody on that. Bill, because of his musical background, really respects the choreography and the choreographer. There is a new surge of dance going through film and TV right now – within the last seven years, really – and there is a new respect for choreographers. Prior to that, I felt a lot of the time like I was being hired as crew, whereas now you are being hired as an artist.

PC: You get more respect.
PB: Yeah – especially on a set that Bill Condon is in charge of; he really has that respect and the reverence for theatre and theatre practices like that.

PC: Is that not always the case on a movie set?
PB: Definitely not! You know, sometimes you go on to a movie set or a TV set – like I have in the past – and you are recognized as a crew member and not as an artist. Now, I think that as a result of these shows about dancing being more in the forefront and more up on the screen in front of people, it’s actually been a really good thing for up-and-coming choreographers; they get more respect.

PC: Was the dancing in TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN all Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, specifically in the wedding scene? That 360 camera shot is so sweeping and beautifully rendered.
PB: Oh, yeah. That was all them one hundred percent. We had rehearsal with them for that scene specifically. Also, there was a Steadicam pass that we did that was actually with Jackson Rathbone and Ashley Greene dancing and they were actually doing swing dancing and flipping around and all of that stuff, believe it or not! [Laughs.] They all had fun – we all had a lot of fun on that scene. I loved working on TWILIGHT.
