Michael Sheen: Breaking Dawn II Confrontation Scene With Volturi Won’t Be Anticlimactic

This is pretty big coming from Michael Sheen. Just from his experience in the Underworld and Tron movies, he has a keen understanding of what makes a good movie climax in a fantasy film. So what do you think of this news?


  1. lol that is funny he talks about how much time it will take in movie and how many days to shoot but (with a smile on his face) says it will anticlimatic ROFL! I cannot wait for the movie!

    • No, he says it WON’T be anticlimactic (like the title of this article says).
      My guess is there will no doubt be a “Bella’s fantasy” scene where she imagines they DO get into the epic battle that never occurred in the book. So we’ll kind of get to see the epic battle we all thought was going to happen in the book, but it won’t be real.

    I sure hope there’s not a fight scene at the end. It would totally defeat the purpose and ruin the point of book 3 of BD.

    The Volturi confrontation takes up “a big chunk of the movie”. Really??? I don’t remember the confrontation taking a “big chunk” of the book. The pregnancy, Bella turning into a vampire, them preparing for the battle but the part that Michael Sheen would appear in, not so much. Am I remembering correctly?

      You remember right. But big chunk of book does not necessarily equal big chunk of movie. Plus big is relative, and Michael may be aware of more than Aro.

    • Plus remember that the confrontation with the Volturi will be in the 2nd part of BD. The wedding, honeymoon, and birth will be in the 1st BD. So probably the confrontation will be a big, big part of the 2nd movie since it will be the main thing happening in that second movie.

      • Karen G says:

        True Nancy. In thinking of it in two films, the second movie will most likely have a lot to do with the Volturi and Michael Sheen. I was thinking of the whole story not just Part II. Thanks for your input.

    Something to remember is that “not anticlimactic” does not necessarily mean there will be a fight. It kind of depends on what you think is or isn’t anticlimactic. I, for example, didn’t think Stephenie Meyer’s ending to Breaking Dawn was anticlimactic.

    It’s the tension created by the scene and how that tension is released that creates the climax. It has little or nothing to do with whether there is or isn’t a fight. Bill Murray and the actors may very well be able to pull off this build and release without resorting to a physical altercation.
