Not Part Of April Fools: Message From Summit Entertainment

We just received the following from Summit Entertainment regarding photos/footage from Breaking Dawn that was leaked onto the Internet yesterday and today.

Dear Twilight Saga fans,

As some of you may know, pictures and screen grabs of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn as a work in progress have leaked on the internet. We are extremely proud of this film and also extremely heartbroken to see it out there at this stage.

The film and these images are not yet ready or in their proper context. They were illegally obtained and their early dissemination is deeply upsetting to the actors, the filmmakers and Summit who are working so hard to bring these movies to fruition to you in November 2011 and November 2012.

Please, for those who are posting, stop. And please, though the temptation is high, don’t view or pass on these images. Wait for the film in its beautiful, finished entirety to thrill you.


Stephenie Meyer, Bill Condon, Wyck Godfrey and Summit Entertainment

We will not be posting the photos here. As per our usual policy regarding unauthorized items, links to the photos in comments will be deleted and the user banned.


  1. I just don’t understand why people won’t just wait for the movie?!! The wait is killing me too, but in my opinion, every photo I see (official or fan taken) just ruins it for me and makes the wait worse.

    I want to see the finished product and have it be new and exciting…I don’t want to say, “Oh yeah, I remember seeing this picture still 5 months ago!”.

    • Oh and I should add…this may be all fun and giggles to us as fans but this is someone’s form of art leaks of any kind are a form of viloation to the artist. Let me put it in context for our younger audience–if you were in the process of inventing something and your notes or drawings were leaked before you were ready to present it, how would that make you feel?

      Not everything is about money vs fandom excitement, it’s about right and wrong and personal ethics.

  2. If I had known the details of the leaked pictures I would not have looked. SIGH I saw things I really didn’t want to see until the movie, ie (birthing scene, protection of Nessie, wedding dress).
    Really regret seeing those picture, I feel like the film has been partially ruined.
    I blame no one but myself for my curiousity.

  3. I haven’t seen the pics, but only because they were taken down by the time I checked the fan sites. I’m glad I wasn’t tempted, because I so would have looked, even though it would be better to wait for the final product. Maybe if they would show us more than a handful of stills spread out over FIVE MONTHS we wouldn’t be so desperate! It’s a good thing the Guide comes out next week…
