Amazon has released some details on the DVD/Blu-Ray of Breaking Dawn - Part 2, including comments and special content. However we know nothing more of the DVD (which according to Blu-Ray.com in United States the DVD will be released on 16 February 2013) but usually the special features are equal or similar to all Nations.
With The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2's release this weekend, there were a ton of great features and stories that Twilight fans will probably want to get a look at, so to keep it short and sweet, here's a round-up of the best and brightest!
Breaking Dawn - Part 2 nearly R rated
[Spoiler Alert] The lost head scene from Part 2 almost landed the film in R rated territory, according to the Los Angeles Times. Director Bill Condon received a provisional R rating after an early Motion Picture Association of America screening six months ago, and he wrote a letter to the board asking for reconsideration. "Certainly, with any other movie, there are a thousand ways to kill people ... With this one, it’s a variation on the same theme. If they were going to be offended by the idea of beheadings, we would have had no movie," he explained. The MPAA would only bend, despite additional requests from Summit Entertainment, with sound adjustments. "Their big note was the accumulated intensity ... In the end, there were very specific suggestions about how we pull back on the sound and the crunching of the head being separated from the neck ... And we did that," Condon explained.
Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Dance offEdit
In "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," the franchise's final installment, fans can expect "epic confrontation," Maggie Grace told MTV News. But it turns out the cast still found time to let loose and bust a move on set.
Grace and co-stars Mía Maestro and Casey LaBow spilled all the details about their choreographed dance-off during our San Diego Comic-Con live stream on Thursday before heading to the "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" panel in Hall H. According to LaBow, there are "surprises" in store for viewers of this final "Twilight" film, but their on-set dance performance was a way to surprise and celebrate the film's director, Bill Condon.
"It was meant to be a thing for Bill," LaBow said. "Everybody on set knew about it except for Bill."
"We wanted just to surprise him and we just wanted to move and dance and have fun," Maestro added.
In addition to celebrating Condon, the dance-off had another goal for those involved. After six weeks of filming in the same area, Grace said they needed to mix things up.
"We needed the morale boost, I think, to unite us all in vampirehood and joy," she explained.
The dance was performed to the '80s jam "Sweet Dreams" by Eurythmics, Maestro revealed. While she said she was the organizer of the dance-off, she also gave credit to everyone who participated in making it happen.
"It was a huge group effort," Maestro said.
While live-stream viewers may not have gotten to see them perform the full dance, Grace did reveal one part that was fitting, given that all three actors portray the vampires of the Denali coven in "Breaking Dawn."
"There's a vampire thing in there," Grace said. "A little 'Thriller.' "
Taylor Lautner's Awkward Nude SceneEdit
Michael Sheen, who plays dastardly Volturi vampire Aro, summed up last night's epic Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere best when he cheerfully told us, "It's a real celebration of the whole experience tonight. I can't believe it's only been a few years; it seems like forever. Can you remember before Twilight? I can't even remember that!"
Neither can we...or maybe we just don't want to! Which is why we were in heaven on last night's black carpet, where we got the chance to talk all things Twilight with the cast and crew behind the saga. And we've got tons of scoop to share with all you Twi-hards who've been here since the start.
About That Vampire Sex: Remember the three Twilight films that basically acted as a whole bunch of foreplay leading up to BD1's honeymoon sex scene? Well Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart hit the sheets in this installment too!
"Sex was our big problem in the last movie in terms of the ratings board," director Bill Condon revealed. "Obviously, it's not in this one because it's vampire sex. Vampire with vampire, I hear it's great, but none of us know what it's like. It was all sort of in our imaginations...I think the thing was to try to suggest the merging of their souls."
Which is romantic in thought, but apparently awkward in execution (cue the sideboob)! Bill laughed, "The first movie it wasn't uncomfortable, because that was just sex. But this thing, because it was abstract, I think they felt more like models in a commercial or something. But they were good sports about it."
Taylor Takes It All Off: Edward and Bella aren't the only ones showing some skin in Breaking Dawn Part 2: Taylor Lautner, who's managed to go shirtless in at least one scene in each movie so far, one-ups even himself this time, disrobing completely.
"It was awkward for both of us, I'm not going to lie," Taylor's scene partner, Billy Burke, chuckled. "Some of those moments you just have to go, 'OK. Here we are. And there you are, almost naked. Here I am in front of you.'"
But don't expect to feel all hot and bothered during Jacob's striptease. Instead, you'll probably just realize Taylor is really, really funny. So does he have a future in comedy? Billy weighed in, "I think he's a wildly talented kid and it wouldn't surprise me at all."
All's Well That Ends Well: "There's nothing hanging over my head right now," Condon revealed about how he was feeling attending the finale premiere. "All of us working on finishing the movie, we've been so obsessed about tonight because of the twist that we added and because of the emotion at the end, so it is really something I've been looking forward to."
But, as much hype as there's been about the mysterious "twist," screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg isn't worried. "There has been a polarizing reaction to all of them," she told us, noting that she "[doesn't] go off book at all." "You can't satisfy all the people all the time. You hope you satisfy the bigger majority of them, but you can go online to any fan site and they'll tell you how horribly I've messed up every adaptation."
Michael Sheen's Bloody battleEdit
Twilight fans know Michael Sheen as the cold, vicious Volturi leader Aro, but in real life Sheen is as personable and downright jolly as they come. So when Hollywood.com sat down with him earlier this month to discuss all things The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, we were determined to get the skinny on the rumored dance-off that happened on set. (Of course we also had to ask about the twist ending, so if you haven't seen the film and want to avoid any spoil-age, stop reading and check in later.)
MILD SPOILERS AHEAD!
Even though the breathtaking battle scene at the end of the movie is a departure from Stephenie Meyer's source material, Sheen said he wasn't nervous about fan response, calling the twist "a reward for the loyalty of the fans." Director Bill Condon had earlier filled us in on the fact that several versions of the scene were filmed, with different characters meeting their maker according to the director's whims. "At one point Aro sort of turned into an animal," Sheen said. DVD extras, please!
Condon also spilled the beans on the choreographed dance routine that will be included on the DVD, though Sheen wasn't so happy with the end result — the Volturi weren't included, so he wasn't able to show off his movies. "Everyone should always have a secret choreographed dance routine," he said. Truer words have never been spoken.
