As Breaking Dawn starts filming this week, the new cast set is revealed.
Breaking Dawn, the fourth and final part to Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga, continues to follow Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) on their human/vampire/werewolf love triangle. I can imagine people cringing at the idea already, but you just wait. Bella and Edward get married, and whilst on their honeymoon Bella realises that she is pregnant with a half-human/half-vampire child. As love-struck and pathetic as the plot sounds, I think this could be the best book adaptation from the Saga, especially when war breaks out with the Volturi.
Directed by Bill Condon, the film will be released in two parts. The first is to be released in cinemas on November 18, 2011 and the second on November 16, 2012.

Personally, the whole Twilight craze has passed for me, but I am very curious to how this film is going to be produced. The reason I didn’t like the Eclipse adaptation was because of how it was portrayed as a pathetic love story for 12 year olds. I much prefer the books and strongly believe that even some ‘Twihards‘ would class them as a good read.
The books aren’t all about, “Oh my god I’m in love with a vampire and a werewolf my teenage life is so depressing” as you would depict from the films. It’s all about the lustrous scenes, the quivering hands and the breaking of the bed posts.
Breaking Dawn is where Bella and Edward finally give into temptation and have bed-breaking sex that literally tears up the room. And I guess that’s what I’m looking forward to. (That and a baby fetus chewing its way out of Bella’s stomach.) But my guess is that it will be completely sensitised for the young audience that it is now playing towards.
No sex scenes, no blood-filled gore. Just safe sex and happily ever afters.
Please prove me wrong.
