‘Breaking Dawn — Part 2′ chosen as most anticipated fall movie by Fandango users
‘Breaking Dawn — Part 2′ final trailer: ‘Forever isn’t as long as I’d hoped’ — VIDEO
Fall Movies We Can’t Wait To See
It’s the end of an era, Twi-hards.
After a sneak peak of the final trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 premiered at the VMAs, the full-length version has arrived. And as Kristen Stewart’s Bella says, “I thought we’d be safe forever, but forever isn’t as long as I’d hoped.” In the film, she is referring to the Volutri coming to destroy her family, but it works just as easily for the fans who wish the series could keep going and going. Watch the video below!
Stars Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser, Peter Facinelli, and producer Wyck Godfrey — basically everybody but Kristen Stewart, who was in Toronto pimping On the Road – gathered on the stage to present the trailer and thank the franchise’s fans for “their incredible enthusiasm from the beginning until now, the final chapter.”
Clocking in under a short 90 seconds, the new clip packs in two and half minutes worth of action. Bella gets ferocious against a big cat, the Volturi (including Dakota Fanning) get plenty of camera time, and little Renesmee shows up to complete the Cullen family portrait. And also: so much snow.
Grab a sweater and take a look at the chilly new Breaking Dawn clip below:
'The Apparition' director Todd Lincoln talks about his new horror movie -- and terrorizing 'Twilight' fans
Ever since he was a horror movie-obsessed kid growing up in Tulsa, Okla., Todd Lincoln has dreamed about unleashing hell onto the big screen. But the writer-director has spent much of the past decade discovering the real-life horrors of development hell as a succession of projects — including a reboot of The Fly and an adaptation of the comic book series Hack/Slash — came to naught. “You’d have the friends and the family and everybody come up and say, ‘Hey, maybe you should think about something else,’” Lincoln admits.
Robert Pattinson, after years of puckering his sparkling vampire lips and gaining female fans with every perky strand of his swoopy hair in the Twilight films, has finally graduated with alumni cred at the box office, showing he has what it takes to draw in moviegoers beyond the romantic realm of blood-lusty (and just lusty) Edward and Bella.
Pattinson’s whoozy, philosophy-laden pairing with director David Cronenberg, Cosmopolis, racked up a solid $70,339 in three theaters this past Friday through Sunday, when it opened in tightly limited release domestically, according to box office tracker Hollywood.com. The film, about Pattinson as a disillusioned, overly sexed billionaire making his way across Manhattan to get a haircut, has made roughly $266,900 in North America, including theatrical screenings in Canada. Next weekend the film jumps into nationwide limited release in 60 theaters across the U.S., said Dylan Wiley, vice president of theatrical marketing and distribution for the movie’s distributor Entertainment One Films U.S.
“Rob, with this performance, has shown there is more to him than just Twilight,” Wiley tells EW. “This is a very serious actor playing a very serious role with a very serious filmmaker.”

Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga has sold more than 100 million books, spawning a film franchise that’s become an international sensation. We got to sit down with her at Comic-Con last month where we discussed the ever-divisive naming of Renesmee, and how she felt about the ending of the saga.”I’ve been holding off the sadness, but it’s starting to get to me,” she said. “I miss everyone — Kristen, Taylor, and Rob. I’m used to seeing them every day.”
While discussing The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, we’ve spent quite a bit of time on the topic of Renesmee, Bella and Edward’s daughter. We introduced you to the actress that plays her, Mackenzie Foy. We tried to get into the whole Jacob imprinting thing. We’ve tried to solve the mystery of her name (very nicely explained by author Stephenie Meyer). But now we must discuss…Chuckesmee.
It certainly hasn’t been the easiest time for Kristen Stewart.
But when EW sat down with Stewart — along with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 co-stars Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson — at San Diego’s Comic-Con just a few weeks ago, the mood was very different. The actors’ four-year journey was approaching an end, and they were feeling reflective about the many ways the franchise has changed them. Stewart spoke about her ongoing struggle to carve out a public life that feels authentic. “I’ve never been able to fully form this thing, this persona, that some people are so f—ing good at. That’s an art. I know a lot of actors [who can do that] and you guys aren’t them,” she said, gesturing to Lautner and Pattinson.
“Did you just point to us?” Pattinson asked. READ FULL STORY
It’s been a hard week for team Twilight. Since the now infamous photographs of Kristen Stewart kissing Rupert Sanders, her married Snow White and the Huntsman director, surfaced on July 24 – followed by her public apology to (never before confirmed) boyfriend and onscreen husband, Robert Pattinson–many have wondered just how, or even if, Summit Entertainment can promote the franchise’s final film with two stars who are reportedly not speaking.
In an exclusive statement to EW, Summit’s president of worldwide marketing, Nancy Kirkpatrick says: “While it is studio policy not to comment on the personal lives of actors, Summit is moving full steam ahead and looking forward to this November’s opening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. We are confident that the film delivers amazing entertainment for our passionate fans and general audience alike.”
We talked to one super-fan, Mallory Proverbs, who says that while she’s heartbroken for Stewart and Pattinson (“It’s kind of tarnished the saga,”), she still plans to travel to Los Angeles for the premiere of the film. “There’s no way I’m not seeing this movie,” she says. “I guess the atmosphere is going to be different, but it won’t keep me from seeing it. I can’t wait, actually.”
