Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart bringing Twilight: Breaking Dawn part 2 on November 16th, 2012
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
It seems like it has been a while since we had a Twilight related news story. Robert Pattinson is off filming WATER FOR ELEPHANTS and Kristen Stewart is off filming ON THE ROAD, so no one has time to talk about Twilight any more. Well, almost no one. Summit finally announced today that the second part to BREAKING DAWN and the very last movie in the Twilight series is coming a full year after the release of the first part. That’s right, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN PART 2 isn’t coming to theaters until November 16th, 2012.
I understand Summit’s desire to milk this series for all it’s worth, but releasing the two films a year apart is ridiculous. The first part should hit in the fall and the second should hit in the summer. You still get the films on separate fiscal accounting sheets, but you don’t run the risk of the Twi-hards losing interest. I know that seems impossible now, but tween girls are finicky and this seems like a mildly risky move from Summit. But both films will feature the Twilight cast, which includes Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Jackson Rathbone, Ashley Greene, Taylor Lautner, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed and Dakota Fanning.
