Summit Entertainment has decided on a release date for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: November 18th, 2011. Interestingly enough, there's no mention of a two-part movie, so either Summit is hanging onto the two-parter announcement for strategic purposes (maybe to announce prior to Eclipse hitting theaters or something), or, well, we're only going to get one film and not two.
Eclipse, Breaking Dawn
I would, by far, rather have a longer movie, and have the entire book included. Summit appears to have shortened all of the movies, (Twilight and New Moon), more than necessary. After all, we've been subjected to many longer movies. All of the series should have been lengthened. Haven't heard anyone complain (except those who hate Twilight) about any of the movies being too long.
I think that Breaking Dawn needs to be a two-parter. There is so much going on in the book and in order to capture the complete essence of the book they need to split it up. Otherwise, it will be a really long movie and people may not want to sit that long for it.
if they were smart they'd do two movies-the last book is so long, and if they just do one movie it would have to be like 3 hours long! Enough with the 3D!! For kids flicks its cool and all, but not every movie should be in 3D!! and aside from Avatar-i haven't been that impressed with recent 3D movies(Alice in Wonderland?..Clash of the Titans?...saw them both in 3D and regular..the 3D was more of a distraction than an improvement). I think having it in 3D would actually hurt the film...just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD!!!
WHY ARE THEY WAITING SO LONG??????????
I think the movie should be in 2 as well. i DO NOT want to see it in 3D neither. Breaking Dawn is my favorite book out of the Saga. I would like for it to follow the book as much as possible! Edward can break my headboard, Bite my pillow, and Bruise me any day!!!!! Team Edward!!!!
Definitely needs to be 2 movie. It's going to be a long wait, but hopefully it will be as good as the rest.
I just finished the book today and I feel that in order to get most of the detail , they would have to put it in two parts, cause 1 they would miss out on alot of the story line, so my vote is 2 parts plz.....
I'm definitely pushing for 2 films. The last book is too long to make into a 2 hour film. They already leave out so much to make the movies! Every thing that happens in Breaking Dawn is paramount to that last chapter in the saga. What, no J Jenks? I don't think so.
In my opinion, they should leave it a nice 'cliff hanger' right after she opens her eyes for the first time. You all know what I'm talking about, right? Burn baby burn.
As far as 3D goes, well, I just don't give a darn.
i would love to see 2 films. i want to be able to see most of the full story and 2 films would allow for that. even if it was 1 film and made extra long it still wouldnt feel like it would cover it all
I total agree there should be 2 movies. There is way too much going on with the wedding, marriage, birth and transformation of Bella. I think you would be short changing the true followers of the Twilight Saga. I don't like waiting, but it would be forth it in the end. I hope Stephanie publishes a couple more on the Twilight Saga - a good one would be about Renesmee / Jacob. A half human/half vampire attached to a wearwolf. Wouldn't that be a good one.
Id like to see it all in one movie but they would have to include everything. So itd be better to have it in two parts so we get everything because there is so much in the last book.
THESE BOOKS HAVE TOUCHED TOO MANY HEARTS TO MINIMIZE THE SMALL DETAILS THAT MAKE THIS BOOK THE BEST OF ALL 4. PLEASE DO NOT DECIDE ON MAKING IT SHORTER THINKING IT IS BETTER FOR THE FEW PEOPLE THAT ARE IN A HURRY TO GET IT TO THE BOX OFFICE. WE AS HARD CORE FANS BELIEVE IN THE ENTIRETY OF THE SERIES DO NOT WANT WASTED SPACE OR SHORTED HALF STORIES. THIS BOOK IS NOT WRITTEN IN A PG-13 FASHION AND IT IS WRITTEN PACKED WITH THE TINY DETAILS THAT WE ALL LOVE. DO NOT UNDERMINE THE SMALL PASSIONS THAT WE SHARE FOR THE LITTLE DETAILS AND THE DESIRE TO SEE THE PAGES COME TO LIFE IN A POWERFUL AND JAW DROPPING ENDING THAT STEPHANIE M. ETCHED IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER. EITHER LONG MOVIE WITH AN INTERMISSION OR TWO MOVIES WITH A R RATING.
As you said Sharon I agree Breaking Dawn needs to be a two part movie because of all the necessary content and storyline. Again I'm not fond of any movie being in 3-D especially the Twighlight Series, as far as filming the two back to back I have to disagree with you there. Give the actors a chance to break away and breathe, I don't want to see them wore out and thier acting skills be at just a par level. Actors need time to re-evalute thier roles I think filming two films back to back would be a horrible idea, no offense its just my opinion.
I would definitely like to see Breaking Dawn made into two films. I don't see how they can get all of the important content into one without leaving out scenes of major importance to the story. Not fond of the 3D idea, but I could see them rereleasing them in 3D at some point in time. I think they will film the two movies back to back if they are going to go that route so that the actors do not age in between shooting. That is what I am hoping.
DEFINETLY a two movie deal!! I agree that there is just WAY to much to be told in Breaking Dawn, and to do one movie would mean leaving out ALOT which would NOT go well with fans!! The first half I think should be all the way up until Bella dies. And the second movie should be when she becomes a vampire!!! I am really hoping once Breaking Dawn in released Stephanie Meyers will continure with Midnight Sun and even explore going into Renessme and Jacobs lives!!!
i haven't seen anything on when midnight sun will be picked up again... it seems that it got lost in all the hype around the movie-making... i was really looking forward to that one - i felt it would be the crowning jewel in the series, the ultimate piece in all things 'twilight' - but no... it seems that now it has become nothing more than a faded rumor on the copy editor's floor, along with all the scenes that should have been...
There is just no way that they can make one movie and give us all the details/storyline needed to fulfill the book's presentation. The fact that Jacob is dead set against the wedding; the honeymoon scene (not to mention the trip it takes to get there); and the pregnancy (while Bella drinks gallons of human-donated blood); and the climax of giving birth, dying, and being brought back to "so-called-" life as a vampire is enough drama to drive us all crazy. I think that they should end part 1 with Esme giving them the house for their wedding gift and leaving the rest to satisfy us in part 2, when the Volture come back to make sure the transformation had taken place. This is my opinion and I'm stickin' to it. Thank you for reading.
i would definitely be ok with one film, but if they want to compete with Harry Potter, they should make it two films! And if they make breaking dawn into two parts, they should not make the first one a waste of life. It should actually be exciting with lots of plot, not just a build up. And the second one should be super exciting from the beginning and the be nicely resolved and ended correctly. As close to the book as possible!
Breaking Dawn would be good as two movies - If Summit can get all of the lead actors signed for a fifth film. What's it going to cost to get RPatz, Stewart and Lautner now that the franchise is so hot?
I think they don't know what to do. you have to have 2 movies. too many important things happen in breaking dawn and if they do one film it will be one long film that won't cover enough and probably won't be all that great. they have to do 2. and 3d is just beyond rediculous. film makers are going crazy over 3d. not all movies are made for 3d.
Breaking Dawn should be two movies. Too much story will be missed
I would like for it to be 2 movies to fully tell the story *** close to the book as possible. A normal 2 or even 3 hours movie would not do BD justice. I have read theat Stephenie Meyers will be a producer on this one. That being the case I expect we (the fans) are going to get the movie we expect and one the book deserves. But it needs to be 2 movies.
No 3D please. But if the movie is two movies, where would they end the first one.? And would the second one have a different release date.? I would just like to see one movie. Movies are never as good as the books any way.
3-D, no! It's a waste of consumer money. Breaking Dawn "2011"!!!! What am I supposed to do with a year and 5 months of waiting.. That's absurd! I wasn't for making it 2 movies, but jeesh make one part in January and the second part in November! Don't stretch my nerves. I've read the books, but I can't wait to see how it translates on screen. I can't wait that long, I don't have the patience! I've seen 'Twilight' at least a dozen times and 'New Moon' at least as many. I'll wear out my DVDs and have to buy more. Please, have mercy on me!!
I am pulled! If Stephanie Meyer wants to spark more sales for her book 'Breaking Dawn', then they should make a 2 part movie, but I don't know if I want to wait for the 2nd part to be released. I am too impatient! I have read the book, and I feel it will be hard to capture onscreen all of the important details in a 3 hour movie, without cutting out some essential details. I am excited to see what Summit decides.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
