“Breaking Dawn Part One” Year in Review
10. “Breaking Dawn” Soundtrack Revealed
The vampire franchise has not only made its stars super famous, but an artist who lands on any of the films’ best-selling soundtracks can expect a special boost and instant exposure to a massive fanbase. Emerging acts likeSleeping At Last and Christina Perri, as well as rising stars like Bruno Mars have earned featured spots on the compilations. But “Twilight” stars have also contributed material, with Mia Maestro’s “Carmen” making the cut.
9. The “Twilight” World Tour
There’s nothing like the glitz of a red-carpet premiere to bring out the best in everyone, particularly with regard to wardrobe choices. When the“Breaking Dawn” cast embarked upon a whirlwind tour of world premieres, Twilighters couldn’t wait to see who wore what. MTV News captured the glamorous looks in a handy photo gallery for repeated viewing pleasure.
8. “Breaking Dawn” Goes To Comic-Con
Those who’ve been following the franchise from the beginning will probably remember that it was at in 2008 San Diego Comic-Con that thousands of screaming fans descended upon the annual pop-culture convention and surprised convention-goers with their overwhelming enthusiasm. That first showing was such a huge success that going forward, Summit made Comic-Con a major priority with regard to promoting the films. At this summer’s event MTV News got several particularly newsy tidbits about Renesmee and Jacob’s imprinting, but we also really loved hearing Kristen Stewart talk about Bella’s wedding.
7. Our Extended “Breaking Dawn” Interview
We’ve had the pleasure of catching up with the castmembers several times this year, so it was hard to narrow down all of those great interviews into just one favorite. That said, we loved hearing Robert Pattinson talk aboutStewart playing a vampire in “Breaking Dawn – Part 2.” Andhe really loved that she had to suffer through those uncomfortable contact lenses for the transition. “When she finally wore them and then was complaining about them every second of the day, it was kind of satisfying,” he smiled.
6. The First Photo
Any piece of “Twilight” news is arguably cause for a few screams of delight for Twilighters. But when Summit released the first steamy, swoon-worthy photo of newlyweds Edward and Bella in bed together, we could practically hear the collective squeals and sighs from fans around the world. Talk about starting the New Year off with a bang.
