Bits of Breaking Dawn
The holidays are over & the cast is back on set! Check out these collected tweets via examiner
  •  Judi Shekoni (“Zafrina”) on January 3rd, “The party has started again!!!”
  • Her tweet was followed by these:
  • Janelle Froehlich: Yes! And we're back on set. I love these people.
  • Peter Facinelli ("Carlisle Cullen"): Back at work. Having my make-up applied. How many men can say that on a Monday morning.
  • Janelle Froehlich: I can't get over how good my @amadouly looks today.
  • Amadou Ly: Fun day on set.
  • Marlane Barnes (“Maggie”): I can't think of a better way to start the year than making a movie w great folks!
  • Then, yesterday the following tweets about filming were shared:
  • Amadou Ly: Ready to go on set. The crew members are amazing. I couldnt ask for more. Have a great day everyone.
  • Janelle Froehlich: I am most looking forward to seeing the covens come to life...
  • Mia Maestro (“Carmen”): The question is how much fake snow these lungs can take....
  • Andrea Gabriel (“Kebi”): Back on Louisiana soil. Psyched to see my vampy friends and get back to work on this puppy.
  • Cameron Bright (“Alec”): Day 2 of filming in 2011. All is well. Huge sequence we are filming over the next few weeks. Very hot on set today. Can't tell you any more about it. Sorry.
  • Jamie Campbell Bower (“Caius”): Its full steam ahead. The rain is nice. X
  • Marlane Barnes (“Maggie”): Tea with lemon and galoshes are the only way around a rainy humid winter day.
  • Janelle Froehlich: I have to say... My hat off to our wardrobe and make-up artists. Everyone looks amazing.
  • Erik Odom (“Peter”): Swampy bayou
  • Janelle Froehlich: We are all wearing galoshes today. Mine are bright yellow. Loving it! Although it does feel like we're on the set of "Deadliest Catch..."

More filming
Filming on Breaking Dawn has been going on for a month (give or take) now, and it is expected to pick back up from the cast and crew’s winter holiday break on January 3rd. While we know that the Baton Rouge set of Breaking Dawn is locked up tightly, the cast has never been more activeon Twitter than it has been this go-round. So, hopefully we’ll keep getting bits and pieces of information from them – not to mention some more of those special Breaking Dawn snapshots Bill Condon (director) has been doling out (for Thanksgiving and Christmas, so far). This should tide us over until . . . .
At lastttttt . . . On April 12th, Stephenie Meyer’s Official Guide will hit stores. It’s been a long time coming, and fans have been very eager to see what Meyer has cooked up to explain any missing pieces in the Saga. If Bree Tanner was any indication of what was in store with the Guide, it should be a very interesting addition to the collection. The same will be true if Volume 2 of the Twilight Graphic Novel hits stores this year.
Breaking Dawn photos, trailer, and promos
Like with Eclipse in 2010, fans can most certainly look forward to the moments when new still images, trailers, and TV spots start rolling out for Breaking Dawn. Of course, it won’t happen all at once or that simply, but throughout the year, we’ll start to see more and more from the movie as the theatrical release date for the film begins to near. No doubt the first trailer will come by way of an important event (for example, with New Moon, the first trailer showed at the MTV Movie Awards), and still images will come out a few at a time, so the release of these things will probably become their own little events. That’s always pretty fun forTwilight fans.
The soundtrack and all its glory
Each of the Twilight series’ soundtracks have had their own unique story. With New Moon, we watched as a wealth of interest from bands and individual singers came about. So many Twilight-inspired songs came across the fan radar that it was hard to keep up. Then Chris Weitz and Alexandra Patsavas ended up scoring tons of respected talent for individual songs tailored to the New Moonstory/atmosphere. With Eclipse, the album was set apart by its unique marketing. In case you don’t remember what I’m referring to, fans were given a window of time to listen to the album streaming online before making a decision to purchase it. And with both, there was intense fan interest in which artists were selected to contribute to the soundtrack. And the results were impressive once again. So the Breaking Dawn soundtrack will probably house a few important moments as well - the most exciting of which will be the release (followed closely by a first viewing of the film with the music accompanying). Same goes for the selection of a composer for the score (in all likelihood, one composer will do both Breaking Dawn scores for the sake of continuity – not confirmed, just speculation).
TV Awards
Already, there’s a TV Awards show appearance in the works for the cast: the 2011 People’s Choice Awards, where Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will represent the Twilight Saga. That’s just the first of what will undoubtedly be many Twilight TV appearances. Note that in 2010, the Twilight cast showed at the MTV Movie Awards, the Scream Awards, the VMAs, the People’s Choice Awards, the Golden Globes, and even the Oscars.
Getting to know our Breaking Dawn newbies
In one way or another, we’re going to get to know more about the newest Breaking Dawn castmembers. Some are on Twitter, and that’ll definitely help those castmembers make themselves known to fans. With the others, there’ll probably be appearances and interviews coming here and there which will introduce each of them to the Twilightfandom. This will be particularly true near to the release date for the first part. All throughout the Saga, there have always been new cast additions to speak of, and it’s always entertaining to hear what it’s like for these actors to step into such a notorious and followed film series. . . . and this'll be but a part of the . . .
Interview, Interview, Interview phase
There are going to be so many television, red carpet, magazine, and online interviews with the cast, crew, and filmmakers over 2011 that Twilight fans’ collective heads will be spinning by November. During the thick of it, there comes a point – at least for Twilight site admins – where you have to decide which of the many, many clips and snippets get the most attention. It’s when there’s content overload like this that it becomes clear just how significant this series is at the moment.
Cast’s other projects
A lot of the Twilight cast’s other projects will be hitting theaters this year. And judging by IMDb’s recently discussed MOVIEmeter results, some of them have already been getting a heavy amount of interest. The ones fans seem to be most looking forward to are Water For Elephants (with Robert Pattinson), On The Road (with Kristen Stewart), and The Apparition (with Ashley Greene).
Breaking Dawn premiere
No Leno or awards show appearance will ever stack up to premiere night. Fans will, in devoted fashion, camp out in a sort of tent city for days to see the big event in person, and there’ll be livestream feeds all over the place for those who can’t make it to L.A. (assumption on location there). The cast, Stephenie Meyer, Bill Condon, soundtrack musicians, and filmmakers involved will all walk the red carpet in style. It’s definitely something to look forward to.
Breaking Dawn hits theaters
New Moon and Eclipse still have some records in pocket from their theatrical releases. No doubt the same will become true for Breaking Dawn, but more importantly, fans will get to finally see some of their favorite moments from the entire Saga on-screen. Breaking Dawn 1promises a wedding, a honeymoon, the introduction of new characters, and the beginning of new lives. The movie’s release date is November 18th, which is less than year away. It’ll be a great day.
