‘Breaking Dawn 1′ among films EW can’t wait to see this fall
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1
Starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson
Directed by Bill Condon, PG-13
”This is sooo weird,” cries Kristen Stewart. It’s a sunny Thursday afternoon in San Diego, and the 21-year-old actress is tucked into a sofa beside Twilight Saga costar (and never-confirmed-but-obvious boyfriend) Robert Pattinson, 25. The actors, along with Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) — the director of the final two installments of the franchise, Breaking Dawn — Part 1 and 2 (in theaters Nov. 18, 2011, and November 2012) — are relaxing with coffee in a quiet hotel suite after a busy Comic-Con morning. Or at least they were till Entertainment Weekly started reading aloud from Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn, the 2008 best-seller that’s the basis for the two movies. ”It’s just so strange, I can’t get over it,” Stewart says of hearing the words she guesses she’s read ”thousands” of times, now that production on both parts of Breaking Dawn has wrapped. But if you want to talk strange, just consider what takes place in the upcoming movie: Bella and Edward’s long-awaited wedding and (even longer-awaited) passionate honeymoon consummation; Bella’s pregnancy with a half-vampire baby, who grows at an accelerated rate and puts her life in danger; Jacob’s mysterious relationship with the unborn baby; and an entirely gruesome and bloody birth that results in Bella’s death (sorta). (Nov. 18) —SV
