'Breaking Dawn II' Unleashes New Pictures, Director Shares More Details
"The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II" has unveiled two more photos that give new look at Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Making their way out via MTV, the stills present different settings in two different seasons. One of them shows Pattinson, Stewart and some actors who play the Cullens' allies standing together in the woods. The other one, meanwhile, shows Pattinson's Edward walking alone in the middle of the snow.
Along with the release of the new images, MTV sat down with director Bill Condon to discuss several updates on the final installment of the "Twilight Saga" film series. "We're at the stage of mixing and doing color timing and adding that last big bunch of visual effects shots," said the Oscar-winning filmmaker.
"And that's where it gets complicated because the [most challenging] ones always come in last, so it's just making sure that they look as good as they can, that's the big thing right now," he continued, explaining the current post-production phase of the highly-anticipated movie.
Condon went on revealing that the special effects used in "Breaking Dawn II" would be rather "creepy." He said, "Oh man, there are so many that are so beautiful. I love the way, it's very creepy, but I love the way that Alec's mist looks. He has that mist that can make you blind, deaf and dumb, so that's looking really good. It feels like the best Hammer [horror] movie you've ever seen. It's a little different [type of mist] and sort of has tentacles that can get inside you and all that stuff."
Confirming how long the final cut of the movie would run, Condon said that "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."
During the chat, Condon also talked about Mackenzie Foy who plays Edward and Bella's daughter Renesmee. Speaking about the special power of the character, the director revealed, "Her power, she touched somebody and she can show them what's in her head and that you develop."
"There are some visual things, but a lot of that is done through Carter Burwell's score, but then just recently in the mixing Dane Davis, who is a brilliant sound designer, he did 'The Matrix' and so many other movies, he had her just speak and read poetry and things like that, and he's turned it into hundreds of tracks. You don't actually hear words but it becomes the chattering of her [voice], it's a very abstract effect that I've never heard before. It's really cool."
"Breaking Dawn II" will make its way out onto the U.S. cinemas on November 16.
