Rob and Kristen talk about what it was like to film the BFD scenes in Breaking Dawn Part 1. This has to be the most anticipated movie of THE
They say good things come to those who wait — and no one knows that better than a certain vampire hunk. After several cinematic years in limbo, Edward Cullen finally will have that moment when a young man gets to say to his blushing new bride: Welcome to my bloodline.
First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes a little fanged creature in the baby carriage in the biggest film of fall, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1,” opening Nov. 18.
“I’m curious to see how it will carry out,” star Robert Pattinson tells the Sun-Times. “This movie is so different from the other ones. The stakes are so much higher because now it’s time to turn the entire saga upside down.”
And then there is the matter of Bella’s baby bump. “The birth scene is frightening,” Pattinson admits. “It’s a slap in the face. It’s failure to Edward, who has to choose between losing Bella and transforming her. It’s the toughest scene I’ve ever had to film in my career because this choice tears out my heart.”
Bloody good? You have to wait a few months.
‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1’ (Nov. 18)
Players: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner. Directed by Bill Condon.
Plot: Vampire-mortal love reaches new levels when Bella (Stewart) and Edward (Pattinson) decide to take their relationship to a preacher. After the passionate honeymoon, Bella finds that her jeans aren’t fitting anymore. Here comes a half vamp-baby who grows at an alarming accelerated rate and puts mama’s life in grave danger. Faced with losing the newly minted Mrs. Cullen, Edward has to choose between widowhood or immortality via vampire bite for his soon-to-be-blood-drinking significant other. By the way, a certain wolf named Jacob (Lautner) is none too pleased by any of the above.
Talking point: Not since the Kardashian wedding has there been such a rapid tying of the knot. Stewart admits, “I was racing down the aisle during the first few takes because I was eager to get the two of them married.” Pattinson says, “We saved shooting the actual wedding for last because it was so important. We needed to be immersed in it.”
