Fans have waited years to see Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) tie the knot, and the wedding scene, scheduled for the end of production on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, proved to be equally climactic for those involved. “It was one of the coolest things that I’ve done,” says Stewart. “There was a certain point when I walked on set, and I saw everyone from the entire cast sitting there in the pews, about to do their bit. And it was just so perfect for me in that moment. It was so emotional in such a real way. I literally felt like thanking them for coming.”
But filming wasn’t always quite so idyllic. As the stars and director tell EW, Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2 (in theaters November 18 and November 2012) involved a grueling, globe-trotting shoot, and scenes far darker, bloodier, and more polarizing than any in the franchise so far. If audiences haven’t matured with the Twilight books, they’re about to grow up fast. “We shot everything — whether it’s the lovemaking or the childbirth — as potent and powerful as it can be,” says director Bill Condon, who knew he was working within the constraints of a PG-13 rating. “It will be interesting to see whether there will be people who think it too disturbing for this universe.” For her part, Stewart wishes the movie could have been even truer to the graphic nature of the book — not so much the honeymoon sequence (“It feels like a real love scene, not necessarily vampire-y, which is good”), but the brutal birth of the baby, Renesmee. “It’s funny because when [the PG-13 issue] comes up, everybody thinks it’s all about the sex,” she says. “The birth is really effective, and I’ve heard it really hits you in the face. But what it could have been? It could have been shocking and grotesque, because that’s how it was written in the book.” She sighs: “I would have loved to have been puking up blood.”
Taylor Lautner, who plays Jacob, says that even being a member of the wolf pack didn’t have its privileges. “Everybody is always complaining to me that I don’t have to wear the contacts, I don’t have to wear the white makeup or wear wigs and all that stuff. And I’m like, ‘I’m the one in the freezing rain and cold not wearing a shirt! I paid my dues in New Moon and Eclipse.’” And as for his plot arc in Part 2, which will involve falling for — or imprinting on — Renesmee? “There were many times I walked up to Stephenie [Meyer] and asked her, ‘What exactly is imprinting?’” says Lautner. “It’s still a very confusing thing for me, so don’t ask.”

This weekend, re-shoots for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1's honeymoon sequence with Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) were completed in St. Thomas of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Reportedly, filming was done on April 22nd on the coast, and filming lasted for several hours. As you can see in the attached video, a scene originally shot in Paraty, Brazil was being re-done. Given the slight change in costuming, it could be that the coloring of Bella's swimsuit (originally white) didn't come through properly on-screen, but that's just a guess based on the wardrobe change.
This re-shoot segment was earlier expected to take place in Florida, but a location change was revealed last week.
Meanwhile, in British Columbia, things are finishing up for a couple of other Twilight Saga actors and second unit, including Peter Facinelli ("Carlisle Cullen"), who has shared a few Twitter updates about on-going production.
April 22nd: Still working on BD. Just a few more days till I wrap.
23rd: Got pulled over for speeding in Squamish. Don't think the policeman would
have got it if I said I was driving in character.
April 24th: Easter
Bunny kickin back after a long night of work. Hoppy Easter.

Ok, now back to the post.
Despite talk inevitably turning to Taylor Lautner's upcoming action flick "Abduction" during his Wednesday (April 13), the questions we know everyone was dying to hear answered had to do with two other big movies he has on the horizon: "Breaking Dawn: Part 1" and "Part 2."
Still, Lautner admitted that there was one scene in particular that he shot not too long ago that he was a fan of because it was unlike any other that he's filmed with co-star Kristen Stewart.
"Recently we did a scene in the backyard of the Cullen house where Bella (Stewart) gets mad at me," he said. "She just learned that I imprinted on her daughter, and she is literally throwing me around the backyard. So it was pretty fun to see Kristen try and act all tough. She's a vampire; she's chucking me across the yard into trees and stuff. It was funny."
Everything is coming close. Mark your calendar for our Special Screening on 23rd November 2011. 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' Part 1 will be officially released in Malaysia on 24th November 2011. ;)
You can now get a copy of 'The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide' any Borders near you at RM89.90 each copy.
I am definitely going this weekend!! wooohooo!!

Entertainment Weekly : 'The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide': See Bella in her wedding dress -- EXCLUSIVE
EW has not one but two exclusive images from Stephenie Meyer’s new book, The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide, which goes on sale April 12: Bella as a vampire and Bella in her wedding dress. A nice walk-up to the first Breaking Dawn film, no? I didn’t expect to like the first Twilight graphic novel as much as I did, and these illustrations are by that book’s illustrator, Young Kim, who did such a great job bringing Meyer’s characters to life.
What do you think? Is this how you visualize Bella in the upcoming film?
Just love the gorgeous wedding dress. Do you think they will use the similar wedding dress design in the movie? I bet Kristen will look absolutely stunning in it. I bet the first picture refers to the honeymoon getaway dress Alice chose for her and the design is similar to what Kristen wore from the photos of her and Rob shooting in Rio. LOVE!
You can pre-order the book via Amazon

MTV interview him and gave him a 'Twilight' vs 'Harry Potter' quiz. ;)
Jamie Campbell Bower has had the distinct pleasure of starring in two of the biggest film franchises in, well, ever: "Twilight" and "Harry Potter." So when he stopped by the MTV Newsroom last week to talk about his new Starz series "Camelot," we wanted to see how much he knew about each of the blockbuster movies.
Take a peek at the quiz, the answers and the video to see how well Jamie fared at our test after the jump!
Question: Where was Bill and Fleur's wedding?
Answer: The Burrow
Question: Why was Bella allowed to leave Volterra?
Answer: Edward and Alice promised to turn Bella into a vampire
Question: Who was the first person to die in the 7th installment?
Answer: Charity Burbage
Question: What is the name of the Volturi’s human receptionist?
Question: Who is the other dude who has starred in both franchises?
Answer: Robert Pattinson
Jamie knew the answers for both series about equally, which we have to say is pretty good considering how much mythology is involved with knowing even a little bit about either "Twilight" or "Harry Potter." And now that he's added "Camelot" to his resume, which is also steeped in a lot of back story, we are willing to add genius to Jamie's resume which already includes Hump Day Hottie and movie star.Source

Pattinson is currently working on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, the last two films of the beloved Twilight movie franchise, which are being filmed simultaneously. Pattinson has devoted over five years of his life to the Twilight franchise, and now that is on the verge of completion, a chapter will close for Pattinson. We spoke to Pattinson today and asked him how he will look back and reflect on the Twilight movies.
Go HERE to see the video.
This is not confirmed, but it seems Breaking Dawn may spend a day or two in Florida to shoot.
I first heard this a few days ago when someone told me there were some re-shoots of the honeymoon water scene that needed to be done. The lighting was off from original shoot. NO location given just that they had to re-shoot some of it.
Yesterday someone else told me the same thing but that they were shooting them somewhere on Vancouver Island.
Now this seemed absurd, even in the summer our waters are quite chilly, but in April? FREEZING!
Then today I was talking to someone who told me that while booking talent for WFE release parties Rob was unavailable for particular dates because he was in Florida for Breaking Dawn and Reese was already in Europe for WFE promotion / junket (with Rob joining her right after his Florida shoot.)
I asked another friend who is usually "in the know" and was told Florida honeymoon scenes were indeed scheduled.
So, based on all this it SEEMS there may be a day or two shoot right before Easter weekend in Florida.... No one mentioned a city, and I can't confirm 100% this is correct, but for now it seems likely just based on the number of separate people saying it.
According to People Magazine, the entire Breaking Dawn cast is preparing for the wedding scene. The Breaking Dawn wedding scene is perhaps the second most anticipated scene in the entire movie only being outdone by the Rob and Kristen sex scene.
In anticipation of the big wedding scene, many Breaking Dawn cast members have been arriving in Squamish, Canada. Anna Kendrick, Justin Chon, Gil Birmingham, Christian Serratos and Ashley Greene are among those who've so far come to town for wardrobe fittings and for hair and make-up.
Also spotted nearby:
• Kellen Lutz having a casual lunch in the lounge of Rockwell's Restaurant, where he was reading a book and checking his phone, according to a witness.
• Mackenzie Foy, who plays Stewart and Pattinson's child, was spotted skipping around the grounds of her hotel with her mother. Several Twilight fans recognized the young star and waved. She enthusiastically waved back before heading back inside.
• Jackson Rathbone was also out for a walk enjoying the spring sunshine recently when he was swarmed by a group of 'tween girls who'd been celebrating a birthday lunch in the hotel restaurant. They offered him a bouquet of Gerber daisies and giggled as they spoke with him. Jackson graciously accepted the flowers and thanked the girls.
• Taylor Lautner was snapped having dinner at one of his favorite sushi restaurants in Squamish on Thursday. The star, who was dressed down in sweat pants and a hoodie, appeared relaxed, according to an observer.
• And Peter Facinelli is clearly hard at work: The actor, who plays Carlisle Cullen, Tweeted on Wednesday: "All nighter tonight @ work. Sleep tight. I'll be lurching in the woods."
Filming for Breaking Dawn wraps up later this month and then goes into post production. After this month there won't be any real news to report on the movie. We will most likely have to wait until late summer at the earliest when cast members, including Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, go out on the promotion tour. The film will hit theaters in November.
Dear Twilight Saga fans,
As some of you may know, pictures and screen grabs of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn as a work in progress have leaked on the internet. We are extremely proud of this film and also extremely heartbroken to see it out there at this stage.
The film and these images are not yet ready or in their proper context. They were illegally obtained and their early dissemination is deeply upsetting to the actors, the filmmakers and Summit who are working so hard to bring these movies to fruition to you in November 2011 and November 2012.
Please, for those who are posting, stop. And please, though the temptation is high, don’t view or pass on these images. Wait for the film in its beautiful, finished entirety to thrill you.
Stephenie Meyer, Bill Condon, Wyck Godfrey and Summit Entertainment
