The black carpet scene is as crazy and wild as you’d imagine it to be for the Twilight Saga. Unfortunately, a little too crazy at times as someone told me that someone got knocked off her wheelchair in the handicap section (please, if you go to a premiere event, try to be respectable to those around you and not push and shove!) Being that I am quite short and that I wasn’t in the front row, these pictures were as good as I could get. I missed some people when they got close enough, including the main three, but I think there are enough pictures of them everywhere anyway, right?
A whopping 21 movie stills and Behind the Scenes photos from Breaking Dawn Part 2 were released today, featuring almost every member of the cast! A few of the photos are not actually brand new, but it’s the first time we’re seeing any of the in HQ!
MTV’s “Fall Preview Week” has provided us with two new behind the scene pictures from Breaking Dawn Part Two.
Here’s some Q&A between MTV and director Bill Condon:
MTV News: How are you feeling? What stage of the post-production process are you in?
Bill Condon: We’re at the stage of mixing and doing color timing and adding that last big bunch of visual effects shots, and that’s where it gets complicated because the [most challenging] ones always come in last, so it’s just making sure that they look as good as they can, that’s the big thing right now.
MTV: Is there one specific FX shot that you’re particularly pleased with?
Condon: Oh man, there are so many that are so beautiful. I love the way, it’s very creepy, but I love the way that Alec’s mist looks. He has that mist that can make you blind, deaf and dumb, so that’s looking really good. It feels like the best Hammer [horror] movie you’ve ever seen. It’s a little different [type of mist] and sort of has tentacles that can get inside you and all that stuff.
MTV: I’m so excited to see all the powers! I spoke with Mackenzie Foy recently, the most adorable person the planet, and she talked about how she had fun filming her “power scenes.”
Condon: I know, she’s adorable, right? Her power, she touches somebody and she can show them what’s in her head and that you develop. There are some visual things, but a lot of that is done through Carter Burwell’s score, but then just recently in the mixing Dane Davis, who is a brilliant sound designer, he did “The Matrix” and so many other movies, he had her just speak and read poetry and things like that, and he’s turned it into hundreds of tracks. You don’t actually hear words but it becomes the chattering of her [voice], it’s a very abstract effect that I’ve never heard before. It’s really cool.
Condon’s most fun day on set?
Condon: The biggest and most fun, just because of the surprise they pulled off, we went to the top, top, top as far as you can get in this arena to get the widest shot of the [battle]field with the Volturi on one side and the Cullen group on the other and on the last take suddenly you hear the Eurythmics and they all start to do this intimately choreographed dance that they’d worked out. It was a huge day and the biggest party ever.
Condon also confirms that the running time is 1 hour and 56 minutes, which will make it the shortest of all the Twilight films by 1 minute.
MTV: We talked about the biggest and busiest day, what about the most quiet, emotional moment?
Condon: There are a lot of those, I would say. … I don’t want to talk about one scene because that’s a surprise but you know what, the scene when Charlie meets vampire Bella for the first time and then meets Renesmee. This is a movie that really only has one fully human person, if you treat Taylor [Lautner] as a magical creature, so Charlie is our way into this whole thing. If Charlie can believe it and understand, I think the rest of the audience can too. Of course, Billy Burke is such an incredible actor who can really humanize any moment, so watching him and Kristen together in that scene, I remember everything was a total pleasure in that.

We get to see a glimpse of some a couple of the new characters in the saga, those being of the Amazonian nature (although I’m not all that thrilled about their outfits, to be honest).
