Wyck Godfrey Talks Ultimate Twilight Box Set

We knew it HAD to be coming, right?  Every big franchise eventually releases a huge box set containing all the films and some special behind the scenes footage.  Producer Wyck Godfrey talked about the potential box set with Collider while he was at Comic Con last week.  Godfrey said that the release date isn’t set yet, but assured fans that there is plenty of unreleased footage to add to an ultimate box set.

Watch the full interview below or read the write up at Collider.  The start of the interview pertains to The Maze Runner and The Fault in Our Stars.  The questions about Twilight begin around 7:29.  

Leave us a comment and tell us what you would most like to see on an ultimate box set!

    director’s cut, deleted and extended scene, audition tape, hours and hours of BTS. really hope that it will not be only 2 hours of unseen footage. because 170$ for 2 hours it’s really really expensive….

  2. Another way to screw us of our hard earned cash by making us buy five movies we already own to get half an hour or so of extra footage. And they wonder why pirating is such a problem. We’re not millionaires, unlike them!

    As the interviewer said, “It’s a no brainer.” And because it is, I’ve been saving up for whenever it is released. Other franchises get their fun, we can have ours too.

    I do hope, though, that have EVERY deleted scene included. Honestly, I think David Slade was stingy–no Rosalie fighting or Jacob & Bella future shot? That’s why it’s not in the film–because it looked wrong–but that is why you include it on the DVD. And I know even Jack Morrisey once said that not every deleted scene needs to be seen, but I have to disagree. We fans want all the crumbs. :)

    I also hope they have a new interview with Stephenie Meyer–and not just a rehashing of the questions she’s been asked a bazillion times.

    • From what I heard, the reason the Jacob/Bella future shot was left out was not because of pacing, but because it just didn’t work. The ageing makeup didn’t look right, etc, so I think that’s probably one that they wouldn’t put in because it was left out for other than the usual reasons. Just like the third wife scene that Kristen did. It just didn’t work.

    Well, I’ve held back from buying most of the DVDs because I’d rather have the box set. I hope they include all the special features from previous releases, plus a lot of new stuff. I certainly hope it’s not $170. That’s steep!

    • They don’t usually include all the stuff from the other releases though, do they? Isn’t it usually just the films and the extra stuff? Yeah, if it’s that expensive, there’s no way I’ll be able to justify it, so it will be a moot point for me.

  5. What I would love to see is all the movies with the deleted scenes in before they were cut…. I think that there was a tremendous amount left out of the first couple of movies that really need to be in and really reallly would like to see if it was in them orginally….. they I know for sure I would purchase them…

    Personally, I don’t see the releasing of a “Box Set” to be a negative thing. Such deals have been done by other studios for years. I have a Lord of the Rings Blu-Ray box set, a Star Wars Blu-Ray box set, as well as “The Matrix”… I have several other versions of these films as well, but such is the collector. In terms of “screwing” the consumer… No… Movie studios aren’t charity houses. They own the rights to the Twilight franchise, and they have every right to exploit those rights to make money, as they are a business. I don’t see this as a negative thing at all, in fact. I see it as something positive, as they have found the Twilight Saga worthy of keeping it relevant, as well as providing additional material for Twi-hards. Box Sets aren’t for everyone, especially those just interested in the films themselves, but for those looking for something a bit more, they tend to offer exclusives that you won’t get anywhere else. Most Box Sets come with decrotive containers for the films, including exclusive art work, as well as all the bonus features found on the other DVD/Blu-Rays and additional bonus features, including documentaries not included with the previous releases.

    In respect to pricing? All of the Box Sets that I have cost somewhere between $89.99 to $99.99. So unless they are throwing in Edward’s Volvo, I doubt it will be more expensive than that.

    Lastly, in terms of value… That is all up to you. Value is always in the eyes of the beholder.

    As I said earlier, I never fault a studio for using their franchises to make additional money. That’s just good business.

    • Making money is one thing, but I think exploitation is a little different. I would have been perfectly happy to pay extra for these scenes in a set with each movie as it was released, but to ask me to buy all the movies again just for a half an hour of extra scenes? Just because they are a business does not mean anything that makes them money is acceptable business practice.

      • I agree. Why include the films again?? Just release a box set of ALL of the deleted footage (the good, the bad and the ugly). ALL of it. Including blooper reels.

        And just be done with it!

  8. No thanks. I’ll just see them on YouTube. Or not. I’m not buying the whole set of films again just to get some random footage that was left out. Not sure I care about the footage at this point.

  9. If Catherine Hardwicke doesn’t give up the screen test filmed in her bedroom, then I’m not really interested. That’s a lot of money to give up if you aren’t seeing the Rob/Kristen on screen chemistry she’s hyped for years.

  10. Guess who says:

    All I really want is Robert and Kristen commentary. And perhaps a rated R version of BD1&2.
