Page to Premiere has come across some awesome B-Roll, aka extra behind the scenes filming footage, from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2! It’s a little bit of everything all mashed up and it can be hard to hear, but it’s really cool to see how the film came together.
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?
It’s 4:30 PM on the West Coast, which officially marks the start of Yahoo! Movies‘ exclusive livestream from the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2!
This is the only livestream covering the event, but they’ll be covering every angle– arrivals, the main stage, the black carpet, fashion cams, fan cams, and more!

Playing vampire and non vampire at the same time, since the (Part 1 & 2 ) films were shooting simultaneously?
I was lucky playing vampire and non-vampire Bella, because I’d played human Bella for so long. I got to play a really well-rounded version of her.
If you were to take the fact she becomes a vampire completely away, it’s just a more realized version of who she’s been the whole time. It really represents that time in your life where you’re full and pumping, and has faith in herself enough to figure out her feelings and find out why they’re there. Now it all makes sense and she can say, it’s WORTH IT, and it’s really fun and satisfying. It was breaking her in like a car, how fast? How fast does it go?
Were you sad to let him go?
Very very strange. Same frustration, same way through, it’s a strange part. On one part, a lot of the audience project their idea of him onto him, but my own instinct is to find the infallibility and weaknesses. So you’re trying to play both things at the same time, and playing this “perfect” specimen, but what is that? So you’re trying to play an archetype and a character at the same time. I just felt really frustrated…and then it ended.
Line between caring and creepy with Renesmee?
It’s a fine line and I was worried about it. We were fortunate to have Stephenie on set the whole time for the last two, and she said stop overcomplicating it! It’s a lifelong bond between two people, so, it’s more of a protective thing. Like a brother and sister relationship. So I couldn’t allow myself to think ahead and go beyond that. I think Bill did a great job with it, because it is delicate.
Advice you’d tell yourself before joining the franchise?
There’s nothing like being around Kristen, Rob, and Nikki…to make you feel like an old, fat, welshman. You feel like by osmosis you’ve gotten more attractive, but then you look in the mirror afterwards and scream!
How do you feel about being able to surprise fans who have read the book so many times?
Jackson Rathbone: The last 20 minutes of the film are really going to be huge for the fans. It’s really amazing and beautiful, and brings back to the first Twilight. It’s really awesome, and exciting!
Visualization of powers?
These are mental powers, like Bella’s shield or Alec’s power, you can’t actually see them. In a visual medium, you can’t make it that subtle. I didn’t want Bella’s shield to be a Wizard of Oz bubble. For Alec’s power, it was really funky. That was the darkest power, so we really tried to go after it like a horror movie, like a really nasty power. I attribute that to the talent of the actors! They all took it so seriously, they all had complete backstories and successfully managed to make their characters pop.
If Renesmee and Jacob have kids, they’d be vampire/wolf/human! Can you talk about that?
Stephenie Meyer:I know exactly what would happen? There are a few characters that may have a big voice in that storyline. Maybe someday I’ll write it just for myself. I don’t know if you’ll ever see one but I’m not into permanence, so…
Will there be a “bonus scene” in the mid credits of “The Twilight Saga’s Breaking Dawn Part II” afterall? Author of the “Twilight” book series, Stephenie Meyer, has recently taken time to clarify the swirling rumors which was first sparked by Kellan Lutz. In an interview with MTV News, Meyer made it clear that the said scene was actually not exist.
“That’s actually incorrect,” Meyer claimed, clarifying the long-running speculations about the “bonus scene”. She went on explaining, “What they’ve been talking about will be in DVD extras I assume but it’s not in the credits. There is no extra scene.”
Previously, Lutz started the rumor about the extra scene when telling The Insider back in September that “[director] Bill [Condon] even told me that, stay for the credits – there’s a really special thing happening.” He gushed, “They’re gonna love it.”
Back to Stephenie Meyer, the authoress admitted that she had seen the final cut of the film on Monday, October 22. “It was the first time I’ve seen it with all of the effects in place,” she said. “It had a lot of impact. Also, all the music was in, which really impacts the emotion of it.”
Commenting on the film’s ending, she dished, “There’s no way not to [be emotional] with the end of this one. [Director] Bill [Condon] has a very good sense of how to really wring your emotions. He put the end together in such a way that I don’t think you cannot have a moment. I can only imagine the fans will really appreciate that moment of reflection.”
As for some changes that have been made to the storyline, Meyer commented, “There is an element we had to change to make it more visual. The changes give us a bigger story. It’s something that me and [screenwriter] Melissa [Rosenberg] came up with over one long dinner in Vancouver. Once we had figured out how we wanted to do it everything really fell into place.”
During the chat, Meyer also weighed in on Robert Pattinson’s recent comment that the vampire sex scene in “Breaking Dawn II” will be “pretty ridiculous.” She gushed, “Yeah I saw that. I think he was talking about how it was so hard to keep a straight face [during that scene].”
“For the actors, there are 40 people in the room and most of them are inches away from you. It’s a kind of awkward menage-a-forty going on. I think when you see the scene it’s a testament to their acting ability that you don’t see any of that in that moment at all.”
