LA Times:‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’ director nixes ‘crazy, great’ sex scene


Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon's  interview with the LA Times .He  talks about how he chose the scenes to premiere at Comic Con this last week , decision to not show sex scenes at comic - con ..

“Once we decided that we didn’t want to show the wedding dress and once we decided we didn’t want to show her pregnant, we were limited to the honeymoon,” said Condon, who has been tasked with chapter of the “Twilight Saga” in which heroine Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) marries her vampire boyfriend Edward (Robert Pattinson), has a baby and is turned into a vampire herself. “Then the question was do we want to show the sex, which would have been crazy and great, but I thought we should hold back on that.”


Among the footage shown, Condon and Co. selected a scene that’s not in the book, a clip Condon said he realized could be risky to show to these devoted fans who waited online for days outside the San Diego Convention Center to get a glimpse at the early footage of their favorite franchise. Even after the screening, he said he wasn’t sure how it played to the rabid fan base that has turned the franchise into a $1.8-billion enterprise, and demands that its beloved source material is not messed with too much.

“With Kristen [Stewart] next to me, we were so intent on capturing everything powerful in the book. But sometimes, if you respect what movies do and what novels do, you’ve got to sometimes go in a different direction,” said Condon, who is still editing the film.


The director’s  added scene features a showdown between the werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and his wolf pack, which he is leaving in order to watch over Bella and Edward. Condon’s other material featured a glimpse of the honeymoon in Brazil, focused specifically on Bella’s wedding-night jitters.

“It’s going to be interesting now,” Condon said. “I’m in that world now, and the best thing is also the worst thing. And the best thing is these fans care so much.”
