“Forever is only the beginning.”
Forever may only be the beginning for Bella and Edward, but it is the beginning of the end for the beloved Twilight Saga films.
Breaking Dawn, Part 1 sees Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) exchanging vows–her stunning dress is a MUST-SEE–and starting their lives together. With a heart-breaking goodbye to one-third of the previous love triangle, Jacob, Bella seems ready to spend forever with her true love: and we mean literally forever, as Edward is planning to turn her into an immortal vampire after they…um… finalize their union.
But while on honeymoon off the coast of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, things take an unexpected turn when Bella finds herself pregnant–which isn’t supposed to be possible, with Edward being a vampire and all. The newlyweds rush home and begin a battle to figure out what is happening to Bella and how they can keep her alive, because the baby is sucking the life out of her (insert some really creepy scenes).
Plus, outside the walls of the Cullen house wait an angry werewolf pack that believes the baby is an abomination and must be destroyed before it can be born.
Here’s the run down:
Action: While this installment seems to be primarily about the culmination of the love story between Edward and Bella, you can be sure that in a tale of vampires and werewolves, there is more than one scene of fast-paced action as the two species clash fangs.
Romance: It’s a Twilight movie…OF COURSE there’s romance. The wedding scene in particular will bring huge smiles from Twi-harts everywhere–not to mention more than a few scenes that will bring out the nervous giggles in the audience.
Humour:Definitely some good moments of laughter–which is a nice break from all the high-tension drama–especially when it comes to speech time at the wedding.
Faze was at the red carpet premiere for Breaking Dawn, Part 1, as stars of the film Sarah Clarke (Renee Dwyer, Bella’s mom), Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen) and Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale) braved the freezing temperatures of our Canadian autumn to talk to press and take some photos with lucky fans.
Most of the cast talked about being excited over fans getting to see the wedding scene, but Sarah Clarke thought the drama of the birthing scene would leave the strongest impression. “It’s graphic in the sense that it’s trying to explain just what’s happening,” says Sarah. “I don’t like to go see gory [movies]; he [director Bill Condon] did it in a very tasteful way, so that your imagination sort of fills in the gaps. It’s pretty dramatic.”
