Bill Condon on ‘Breaking Dawn Part 2′ soundtrack, run time, and more!
In addition to the new Breaking Dawn stills (previous post), MTV brings us an excellent new interview with director Bill Condon, in which he talks about the current stage of the film process, moments from filming, and more!
MTV: Have you made any more decisions about the soundtrack? You have so many musicians in that cast.
Condon: Oh yeah, that’s interesting. I don’t know if I’m allowed to talk about it yet but we’ve just now finally firmed it up so that’s exciting.
MTV: How about the running time? Is that official yet?
Condon: Yeah. The running time is one hour and 56 minutes, one minute shorter than the first one and as such, I think the shortest of all of them.
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.
