After being brought back from near-death by Edward after childbirth, Bella begins her new life as a vampire and mother to their daughter, Renesmee, who is growing at an accelerated rate. But when Irina, a member of the Denali coven, mistakenly reports Renesmee as a human infant who has been bitten and transformed into a vampire to the Volturi, they set out to battle and destroy the Cullens for breaking vampire law. To prove Renesmee is not an immortal child, the Cullens gather foreign vampire clans, including the Denali, the Amazonian, the Egyptian, the Irish, and Romanian covens, and also European and American nomads, to stand as their witnesses to the Volturi. Aro, the Volturi leader, has ulterior motives for battling the Cullens, however. With their vampire allies and the Quileute wolf pack, the Cullens defend themselves against the Volturi.

Movie2k Watch Movies – Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Development

After confirming one film, Summit Entertainment had been keeping their eye on a fifth installment. In May 2010, Billy Burke and Peter Facinelli were the only cast actors who were confirmed for both parts of Breaking Dawn, while other cast members such as Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz were still in negotiations for a second part. If the actors holding Summit back from making an official announcement did not reach an agreement with them, the studio would not have minded recasting their roles, as was done in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse with Bryce Dallas Howard’s character, Victoria. However, in June 2010, Summit officially confirmed that a two-part adaptation of the fourth book would start production and it was made clear that all major actors, including the three lead roles, the Cullen family, and Charlie Swan, would return for both parts. Actresses Christie Burke, Rachel St. Gelais, Sierra Pitkin, and Eliza Faria will play Renesmee at her various ages in Breaking Dawn.

By August 2009, Rosenberg said that the scripts for Part 1 and 2 were 75 to 85 percent completed. She found the greatest challenge in writing the scripts to be the final sequence of Part 2: “The final battle sequence is a big challenge because it lasts 25 pages”, she said. “It’s almost an entire three-act story in and of itself. You have to track [keep it all in one setting] hundreds of characters. It’s an enormous challenge to choreograph on the page and for Bill [Condon] to choreograph on the stage.” She had written various drafts of the scene but, at that, hadn’t revised or discussed them with Condon yet. She said, “That’s the next big hurdle to sit down with the stunt coordinator and create the ballet. It’s a lot of work. I’m exhausted, but we’re intent on making them the best scripts yet.” Godfrey called Part 2 “an action film in terms of life-and-death stakes” and said that in Part 1 “there are the pangs of newlywed tension that occur that are relatable even in a fantasy film. Marriage is not quite the experience that they thought it was.” Condon thought of Part 1 “as a real companion piece to Catherine Hardwicke’s movie”. Condon explains, “Like, everything that got set up there gets resolved here. I think you’ll find that there are stylistic and other nods to that film.”

Godfrey considered releasing the second film in 3D to differentiate between the time before and after Bella becomes a vampire, an idea originally proposed for Eclipse, but said that the decision is up to Condon. However, he said that if the second film were to be released in 3D, he would like to shoot it with the proper equipment in “real” 3D as was done with Avatar (2009), not convert it into 3D in post-production as was done with Clash of the Titans (2010). However, it was confirmed on February 12, 2012 that Part 2 would not be filmed in 3D.

Filming started on November 1, 2010 and wrapped, for most of the cast, on April 15, 2011, ending the franchise’s three years of production since March 2008. Filming was shot on location in Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Vancouver, British Columbia; and at the Raleigh Studios in Baton Rouge.

On the subject of the final day and her final moment as Bella, Stewart stated, “After that scene, my true final scene, I felt like I could shoot up into the night sky and every pore of my body would shoot light. I felt lighter than I’ve ever felt in my life.” Pattinson thought the day was “amazing” and commented, “I then asked myself why we didn’t do this in those four years. Every difficult moment just vanished.”

In April 2012, the crew and cast, including Pattinson and Stewart, returned for reshoots to pick up some additional shots for technical work with some of the cast and stunt actors. However, these re-shoots did not include any new scenes or dialogue.

Tippett Studio first began working on the CGI (computer-generated imagery) wolves in February of 2009 for The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and the look of the creatures has evolved, becoming more photo real over the course of the saga, with the input of three different directors. “It’s a subtle balance of just how anthropomorphic these wolves are,” says Eric Leven. “Bill (Condon) wanted to make sure that we had a sense of the human or the shape shifter in there. Finding that balance of how much of a human performance versus an animal performance was important for Bill.”

Leven adds, “Bill has always treated the wolves as characters and never as computer generated things, and directs them in the same way he’d direct any actor. He would always give us direction like Sam should be angrier. It’s the best way to work. His treating these creatures as characters, instead of just computer bits, was really great.”

“Because we’ve been working on this franchise for such a prolonged period of time, we’ve been able to improve the look from show to show,” comments Phil Tippett. “Wolves generally are pretty darn clean and since Bill wanted the wolves rangier, that means a lot more fur matting and clumping, like they’ve lived out in the woods. We edged towards something a bit more feral.”

“However, there is also a balance between look and technology,” adds Tippett. “The body count of the wolves escalates and because we’re adding a great deal more hair to get the right texture, that fur really ups the rendering time. We’ve gone from four wolves to eight to twelve, to sixteen in Part 2. So we have to be very careful about that balance, because it takes hundreds of hours to render each wolf.”

Movie2k Watch Movies – Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Music

It was revealed in January 2012 that the soundtrack for Part 2 had already started production. Confirmed for the soundtrack in advance were “Heart of Stone” by Iko, which plays when Edward and Bella are talking in the cottage after finding Alice’s note and “Where I Come From” by Passion Pit, which will play when Bella wakes up from her transformation.[14] Carter Burwell, the composer of Twilight and Breaking Dawn: Part 1, returned to score the final installment of the series.

In later announcements, Carter Burwell confirmed that the score was complete. “The movie basically upholds the final installment with a score that has the same jungle-music feeling The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 brought us,” Burwell affirmed. “The music pieces that take place in the catalystic final battle will be very much like the nineteenth song in the previous movie’s score, ‘It’s Renesmee’ and the twenty-fourth, ‘You Kill Her You Kill Me’.”
