EW Offers Five new Photos from Breaking Dawn

We were given the heads up last night and the images don’t disappoint.  Entertainment Weekly will have two covers for this week as well as a few more images inside the magazine.  Photos include Bella eating her breakfast of eggs in a morning after scene, Jacob running holding what looks like a wedding invitation, and our first look at Tanya, Kate, and Irina from the Denali clan.  We were given the image of Jacob to share with all of you. For the rest of the images, visit EW’s main site.

Fans have waited years to see Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) tie the knot, and the wedding scene, scheduled for the end of production on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, proved to be equally climactic for those involved. “It was one of the coolest things that I’ve done,” says Stewart. “There was a certain point when I walked on set, and I saw everyone from the entire cast sitting there in the pews, about to do their bit. And it was just so perfect for me in that moment. It was so emotional in such a real way. I literally felt like thanking them for coming.”

But filming wasn’t always quite so idyllic. As the stars and director tell EW, Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2 (in theaters November 18 and November 2012) involved a grueling, globe-trotting shoot, and scenes far darker, bloodier, and more polarizing than any in the franchise so far. If audiences haven’t matured with the Twilight books, they’re about to grow up fast. “We shot everything—whether it’s the lovemaking or the childbirth—as potent and powerful as it can be,” says director Bill Condon, who knew he was working within the constraints of a PG-13 rating. “It will be interesting to see whether there will be people who think it too disturbing for this universe.” For her part, Stewart wishes the movie could have been even truer to the graphic nature of the book—not so much the honeymoon sequence (“It feels like a real love scene, not necessarily vampire-y, which is good”), but the brutal birth of the baby, Renesmee. “It’s funny because when [the PG-13 issue] comes up, everybody thinks it’s all about the sex,” she says. “The birth is really effective, and I’ve heard it really hits you in the face. But what it could have been? It could have been shocking and grotesque, because that’s how it was written in the book.” She sighs: “I would have loved to have been puking up blood.”

Taylor Lautner, who plays Jacob, says that even being a member of the wolf pack didn’t have its privileges. “Everybody is always complaining to me that I don’t have to wear the contacts, I don’t have to wear the white makeup or wear wigs and all that stuff. And I’m like, ‘I’m the one in the freezing rain and cold not wearing a shirt! I paid my dues in New Moon and Eclipse.’” And as for his plot arc in Part 2, which will involve falling for—or imprinting on—Renesmee? “There were many times I walked up to Stephenie [Meyer] and asked her, ‘What exactly is imprinting?’” says Lautner. “It’s still a very confusing thing for me, so don’t ask.”

  1. I so want these mag covers, i get ew in the main already but if i only get one i will go buy the other one!!!

  2. That seems like Jacob holding a wedding invitation and running away.

  3. I love this picture the most: http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,20308569_20485406,00.html#20942633

    It looks so good, and I think MyAnna looks perfect as Tanya! She could have had a little more strawberry tint to her hair, but otherwise, I think she looks fantastic and very beautiful. I wonder why they have Irina in the picture, since she didn’t attend the wedding in the book, but I’m assuming they changed that around so as to be able to fit more of the cast in each part.

    Either way, I think that’s my favorite still 🙂

    It’s the wedding invitation!!!!!!!!!!
    I want one too!!!
    Pass the invitation Jake!!

  5. Every photo I see of Bella and Edward makes my heart skip a beat. I feel like a little kid. I love it. I must go out and buy a copy of tomorrow’s EW issue. Of course, I’ll say I’m buying it for my daughters. And I’ll give it to them eventually. After I read it 50 times and get goosebumps over every photo!

  6. Awww man!! Why cant these magazines be availabe in India?!! There are uncountable twihards here too!! Not fair!!!

  7. Wow! look at the Denali clan, They look absolutly beautiful!! Now i totally get why Bella felt insecured…

  8. Kristen, I for one would have loved to have seen you puke up blood. I’ll always mourn the gory, spine-cracking Breaking Dawn we’ll never get. SM may not be a horror fan, but she certainly wrote horror into that book.

  9. olny the end of april and coming into may and their picture are already out cool pic

  10. The High res full-sized covers are not showing. Am I the only one having this problem?

    “That seems like Jacob holding a wedding invitation and running away”
    Unlike Edward who had the love of his life , and still ran away.

  12. This makes me sad 🙁

    I knew this was going to be a good year to subscribe to EW! My better half knows me too well. As soon as I showed him the covers he said “I guess we’ll be going out and getting the one that doesn’t come in the mail tomorrow.”

    omg if you look at the picture looks like jacobs carrying a note (letter) i wonder what it is???

    • It must be the wedding invitation,alongwith the letter that Edward writes to Jacob,inviting him to the wedding. I’m guessing this preceeds the scene where Jacob phases and runs off from Forks at the end of the book Eclipse,since it wasn’t included in the movie.I hope it’s in there in BD!

      These photos are oh-sooo good. The Edward Bella photo made me squeal out loud!I can’t get enough of my favourite couple.
