Breaking Dawn on EW’s Fall Movie Preview Cover

Breaking Dawn is on the cover of this week’s EW. Bill Condon is quoted in a preview of what is to come in the issue:

“The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it’s not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that,” Bill Condon tells EW. “Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the Twilight movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon. Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them.”

Check out EW and grab the issue this Friday on newsstands.

From our standpoint: Bravo, Mr. Condon, bravo. We are looking forward to the final chapter in a film we have been covering since 2008 and a book series we have been covering since 2006 when people said “What’s Twilight?” and “Stephenie who?” We can’t wait to see the final installment from actors, production team, and everyone who has given years to this.

Meet Renesmee! EW Official Cover














EW has released the cover of the June 22 issue which features Breaking Dawn Part 2.  It offers our first full look at Renesmee, played by Mackenzie Foy.  There are actually 2 covers to chose from.  One with just Edward, Bella, and Nessie, and another with Jacob added as well.  

“It’s a hugely important part,” says director Bill Condon, who loved watching Foy and her older costars interact. “They were amazing with her,” he says. “It really brought something paternal out in Rob, and Kristen was especially protective. I’d have to interrupt them when they were in deep conversation to get going with a scene.”

Leave us a comment and tell us what you think of her look!

EW Vistis the Set of The Host and Talks Seeker and Wanderer Details

EW was just on the set of The Host movie and they have some insider details for us.

Fans of Stephenie Meyer’s 600-plus-page novel have likely already gathered from the description above that film interpretation of The Seeker is almost the exact opposite of how she’s described in the book. Instead of small, dark-haired, and clad mostly in black, the very blonde Kruger stands regally on some serious wedge heels, dressed in a futuristic cream-colored pant suit. It’s a change designed by writer-director Andrew Niccol (Gattica, In Time) to reflect the “purity” of the egalitarian Souls, and Meyer told me on the set that she happily embraced it. Gattica is her favorite sci-fi film of all time.

As for the delightful Ronan, although she wasn’t working that day, she came out to the set to speak with EW about the film, one day after the Oscar-nominated Irish actress turned 18. We’ll have video of our interviews with her, Meyer, Kruger, and Irons in the coming months — the movie, which is still shooting, isn’t hitting theaters until March 29, 2013, after all — but I can tell you how Ronan is differentiating the alien Wanderer from the internal voice of Melanie in the film. It’s actually quite simple: The Wanderer speaks with a generic American accent, whereas Melanie’s voice is inflected with a Louisiana twang, another Meyer-approved tweak from the book.

Entertainment Weekly Cover Image

The new Entertainment Weekly features the trio on the cover as well as an interview and new images from the film.

Here is a sample of the interview about the love scene and the birth:

“There’s a version where it was really intense,” recalls Pattinson in this week’s EW.  “Cinematically, cut all together, it’s awesome,” says Kristen Stewart. “But we didn’t really do that scene. ”

“And when we did,” adds Pattinson, “they kept telling us to stop.”

The PG-13 rating also limited things with regard to the climactic birth scene, which takes place at the end of the film. “That’s what I’m really disappointed about — and I’ve talked about it with Bill,” says Stewart.  “It was more sympathetic or something when I played the scene with less energy, and it made it easier for him to tell the story. But in the book, Bella is screaming, ‘NOOOOO!’ [Stewart stands and demonstrates.] And I did it like that — crazy and Exorcist-like. I was going for this weird mix of turning into the most feral mother you can imagine and also fighting for my own life. I mean, I was a nutcase. I was an absolute nutcase.”

EW Breaking Dawn Cover Eye Color Mystery Solved

When the Entertainment Weekly cover hit with Edward and Bella in the water, sharp-eyed readers noticed that Robert Pattinson’s eyes were not golden and Kristen Stewart’s were not brown. We figured since there was so much water involved in the scene wearing contacts wasn’t possible and that they’d fix it digitally in the final touches on the film (much in the same way Kristen Stewart couldn’t wear contacts in the New Moon cliff diving scene.)

Well it turns out there is another answer. Bill Condon’s partner, Jack Morrissey responded to fan inquiry and here is the answer. According to Bill Condon, the picture in EW is a rehearsal shot. They had the actual contacts in when the cameras actually rolled and things like that are also double checked in post production.

So no worries folks, the eye-color is correct in the film.

Sneak Preview into the EW Breaking Dawn Article

According to US Weekly, this is what Kristen Stewart Robert Pattinson had to say:

“Kristen Stewart’s favorite moment in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 was the wedding scene between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. Her real-life beau, on the other hand, says he preferred the bed-breaking sex scene during their honeymoon.

“I wanted to have it as a line so much: ‘I bit through all the pillows. Every. Single. One.’ And then he’d start crying,” Robert Pattinson, 25, says in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. “By the way, that’s what he should be ashamed of in the morning. All those beautiful pillows! Egyptian cotton! I ruined this bed!”

You should be able to find the issue on newsstands today or tomorrow depending on your area.
