MTV: How to Spend Time Until Breaking Dawn Part 2

MtvlogoKara Warner over at MTV tweeted out a question yesterday: “How are you passing the time from now until November 16, 2012? BD2 release”

We responded along with lots of others.

Our friends at Twilight Lexicon offered a shout-out to Internet stars/comedic sister duo Hannah and Hilly Hindi’s “The Hillywood Show,” who recently reached their goal of raising $10,000 to produce a “Breaking Dawn” parody. “Looking forward to the @HillywoodShow Breaking Dawn parody. They raised 10K to do it,” the Lexicon tweeted.

Others suggested re-watching “Twilight,” “New Moon” “Eclipse” and “Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ and re-reading Stephenie Meyer’s books that inspired it all.

“@Twilight movie marathons, re-reading the books for my 6th time and of course twitter :),” wrote Jimena Martinez.

Sarah M., who is one of the lovely ladies behind the Kristen Stewart’s Hot Bodyguard Facebook page, seems to be developing a budget so she can come to Los Angeles next year for the premiere and camp out again in Tent City.

“Work, work, work to save $ for Tent City 2012 and hoping for some #SWATH promos/premieres w/ Kristen & @KStewsHBG :),” Sarah tweeted, referring to Stewart’s other big movie, “Snow White and the Huntsman.”

Mackenzie Foy and the Swear Word Bucket!

The more I see of her, the more I am in awe of this little girl!  MTV talked with Mackenzie and she admitted that her cast mates had a difficult time keeping their language in check.  She actually had a swear jar for them to put money in when they used foul language and then donated the money to St. Judes.

In response to our earlier post about how she wasn’t allowed to see Eclipse, well, she’s not allowed to see all of Breaking Dawn Pt. 1 either!  She’s was going to have to close her eyes for some moments.  One thing is clear, Mackenzie’s parents are doing a fine job of keeping her innocent in all the madness that is Hollywood!

Video: MTV After Hours

Josh Horowitz has really outdone himself with the comedy this time. We enjoyed the antics he played on the Harry Potter cast when Deathly Hallows came out by making them say American phrases.

Bill Condon Talks Breaking Dawn Soundtrack

As many of you know from listening to the free preview of the soundtrack, there is a new version of “Flightless Bird, American Mouth.”  MTV talked to director Bill Condon about revisiting the song.

“I always thought of this movie as the bookend to the first movie, and that was such a great powerful, romantic song for those characters,” he told MTV News during a phone interview last week. “It just felt right to kind of refer back to it at this important, important moment,” he added about “Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” the first of the two-part finale.
Even though Condon wouldn’t state where or when the song was used in the film, he did add that there are other pieces of music from previous films that will be revisited.

“Musically, I would say at the wedding there’s a jazz quartet that plays a couple of tracks from ‘Eclipse.’ Carter Burwell has come back to do the score. He did the first movie, so ‘Bella’s Lullaby’ features in this movie too.”

Bill Condon Talks Romance vs Sex Scene on Breaking Dawn

Kristin Stewart and Robert Pattinson in Breaking DawnIn a recent phone interview with MTV, Bill Condon addressed the concerns fans have had over the whole idea of a possible “R” rating for Breaking Dawn.

“It’s almost clinical the kind of strict guidelines [the MPAA] have about anything that appears to be — how do I put it delicately?

That appears to be, let’s call it thrusting. In fact, you know, it was so much more about romance than it was about hot-and-heavy action, so it was a very kind of simple adjustment to make.”

Condon wouldn’t confirm what Kristen Stewart said in Glamour about the film being re-cut to avoid the R rating.  We’ve heard from both sides of the fandom – those that want it to say PG-13 and those who want the “director’s cut” version that isn’t tamed down at all.  Let us know what you think in the comments.
