Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Release Date

November 18, 2011

"A Summit Entertainment spokesperson has confirmed to HitFix that 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' will open nationwide on Nov. 18, 2011. It's still officially unknown if 'Dawn' will be broken up into one or, as rumored, two films. Stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are all expected to return." (The Full HitFix article)

Bill Condon, the confirmed director for "Breaking Dawn" recently wrote a letter to Twilight fans, assuring them that he is taking this roll VERY seriously....and that there will be no musical numbers in the movie.  :)

"Greetings Twihards, Twifans, Twilight Moms, Team Edward, Team Jacob and Team Switzerland,

I just want to say hello to all of you and let you know that I'm stoked to be getting underway on the adventure of making BREAKING DAWN. As you've probably heard, I've been given a very warm welcome by Stephenie and Team Summit - who are super-focused, as you know, on getting these movies right."  - Bill Condon (Read the rest on Facebook)

The Twilight Saga Eclipse: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion

As for Eclipse:  The Los Angeles Festival will host the invitation-only world premiere of Summit Entertainment's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse on June 24 at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. Details for the screening can be found at

As the release of Eclipse draws nearer and nearer (June 30), I'm finding myself getting pumped up again!  I have to honestly say that I Hated the first Twilight movie, but I thought New Moon was much, much better, and Eclipse is probably my favorite of the books.  Well, sometimes it is, I can't decide!  I just can't wait to see the Bella/Jacob scene!!  I will be heading out to the midnight show with some of my closest friends!  Will you be going?



  1. I agree with you on not being a fan of the first film. It did nothing for me. I liked New Moon a lot better. I hope Eclipse is as good (or better) than New Moon. I honestly have to say, I'm not on board with Breaking Dawn. I hated the book. Hated it. I really doubt I'll go see the film version in theaters. I *might* rent it. I think I'm leaving Twilight as a trilogy.

  2. @Megan Hmmm...leaving Twilight as a in your version does Bella end up with Edward or Jacob? :)

  3. I'm not a fan of the movies and i'm an anti-fan when it comes to the books. Something about stalking, controlling behavior, and pedophilia just puts me off.

  4. I totally agree with you! I didn't really like the first movie, but New Moon was a lot better. I'm really looking forward to Eclipse. Yes, I will be at the midnight showing too :D

  5. That's funny. I loved the first movie and was disappointed with the second. They are by two different directors and I think I liked the first one's style better.

    Megan- I also didn't like Breaking Dawn but I'm hoping they'll make it into a better movie. Who knows!

  6. You have to make a seperation of the two. I like the movies for what they are and adore the books!

    I'm excited for both!

  7. I definitely got excited after seeing the trailer too. It seems like the actors are getting better at their jobs and the directors are staying truer to the book. I hope it's better then Twilight and New Moon! I loved the last two books, so I hope I like the movies too.

  8. @jedi Pedophilia....would that be the weird Jacob/Renesmee relationship or the creepy Twilight Moms gaping at Taylor Lautner undressed? haha!

    @Kel I agree, I think the directors are getting better and better...hopefully they can make Breaking Dawn into something awesome.

    It will always be disappointing in the end because movies are rarely ever as good as the book, but I hope that the movies are at least good enough to stand on their own. I didn't think Twilight did that. I thought it was really tacky, but I think I would've liked New Moon, even if I'd never read the books. Here's hoping for the next two!!

  9. Andye: That would be both for me. In all honesty i liked Jacob till then. Bella could have been redeemed if she ended up with him. Then the whole nesse thing went down and i can't get behind a grown man loving a child. It's the most disturbing aspect of the book to me. As disturbing as a comment made by someone whole told me that they thought it would be romantic if Bella did marry Jacob and then he feel in love with their own child. As of now i can't see how people are ok with it. It's not sending the right message. Nor is the message that a guy can control where you go, who you talk to, and basically fit every single point of "Do you have an abusive boyfriend" checklist is romantic sending out the right ideas. My second cousin after reading the stories doesn't believe "daddy" was abusive to mummy. He was being romantic. For that and the pedophilia thing makes me wish to see Stephine Burn. Also every single book (My poor poor Jane Austen) is becoming supernaturalized. I'm so sick of vampires, werewolves (except my Remmie), and zombies i can't even bein to say.

  10. Andye, I don't really care who she ends up with. I just felt like there was enough closure at the end of Eclipse that I didn't need Breaking Dawn.

    Chelle, I didn't like the plot or subject matter of BD at all, so I'm not holding my breath that this plot will work better on film.

    Angelia, I totally agree that they're separate mediums and need to be enjoyed separate from each other. I didn't like Twilight the film because I just thought the acting was horrible. At the risk of being mauled the next time I'm in public - I just don't like Robert Pattinson and so it was tough for me to watch him for two hours. New Moon was just a better film in my opinion. And I don't want to see BD because I think the plot is awful.

  11. @Megan Wow, it's kind of refreshing to hear that other people thought Twilight (the movie) was a flop and that they don't care for Robert Pattinson. I thought I was the only one! He is just not a good actor (in my opinion) and he is not cute....let alone "beautiful" like he's supposed to be.

    @jedi I know what you mean about the possessiveness, etc. The first time I read the books, I didn't really pay that much attention because I was just so wrapped up in them, but the second time it really bugged me how Bella turned into a sniveling mouse when Edward was around. I wanted her to end up w/ Jacob because she was herself with him...she was strong and daring and fun. The whole thing with Jacob/Nesse is weird, but I guess it's not supposed to be romantic love that he has for her. More like protective love. But, still, it's strange, I agree.

  12. All this to say, I still love the books, and they are the reason that I'm reading I have to give Stephenie some props! (I never read before the Twilight series...shocking, I know!)

  13. @jedi what are your favorite types of books? What have you read recently that you loved?

  14. Hi Andye,
    I read a bunch of different types. I love the classics, sci-fi, romance, mysteries, manga, magic, ect... I really read a bunch of genre's. I actually liked the supernatural genre before twilight. Now.... My love for the classics is my biggest pet peeve against everything become super-naturalized. I hate that people are screwing up the original works of authors that worked hard on because it's popular to make everything about vampires or werewolves now. It's really a fine line for me that's been crossed. Seriously, Pride & Prejudice and Zombies. Ug.. And now it's being made into a movie. Along with "Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"... So annoying and makes me incredibly sick of the genre. I blame Meyer for this. That and her giant ego that has her brother filter any mail that is not positive regarding her series (someone one an LJ board knew her before she became a big head). She refuses even to address to moral wrongs her series go into. I would have loved for her to perhaps say that the vampires in her series are controlling because of a trait, but everything the Cullens do is considered perfection. Edward is the perfect mate. An ex-Mormon analyzed the series and the whole series reflects her religion. That Edward is based off of the Mormon founder and that the Native Americans and those not "like the vampires" are put down because they're different...

    Sorry about the rant there.

  15. Jedisakora- Rant away! You're perfectly at liberty to say whatever you want! You obviously feel strongly about it! So, you should speak out! I can see where her background could have had an effect on her writing. That makes sense. I don't know anything, really, about the Mormon religion, so I couldn't say.
