There are a few items of Twilight news to share today, so to keep it short and simple, here’s a wrap-up of the latest!
For starters, various fansites interviewed director Bill Condon directly after his The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 panel at this year’s Comic-Con event, and the transcripts have just been posted. Here’s a fragment about the honeymoon scene clip shown on Thursday.
Q: About the honeymoon scene, I noticed of course the humor in that. Why did you guys choose to do it that way and how did that decision come about?
Bill: About being funny when she’s getting ready? It just felt like it was human. It was like, again, making everything as real as possible, and it’s like anybody in that moment when it’s like “Oh my God, it’s about to happen,” it’s one thing it’s gonna happen this night. God, it’s Bella, after all this time. And it’s a vampire, you know? But now is the moment and it’s just about making it as relatable as possible. Like, what do you do? You just try to control it in any way you possibly can. You know, you brush your teeth for the tenth time and do all those things to make yourself think that you’re ready, which of course you can’t do. And then the way we cut it, it was just like a lot of jump cuts to make it like she’s sort of this nervous jangly thing. You know the way Kristen goes? (taps fingers impatiently on table, everyone laughs) that was the rhythm of it, you know? We matched that with the way we presented it.

Next, Kellan Lutz has recently done a campaign for Dylan George’s Fall 2011 collection. You can see the photos here, and there’s also a video available here.
Thirdly, Lee Pace (“Garrett” in Breaking Dawn) has a recently gotten a new gig as a New York City mayor who supported the Confederacy during the early Civil War. The film will be directed by Steven Spielberg, so this is a really great opportunity. Read more at Cinema Blend.
In other news, Kristen Stewart has reportedly dropped out of her mother’s film K-11 (note: the reason is to go forth with her new big film, Snow White And The Huntsman, an inarguably more promising step). E! Online has a few details about that. Also, a couple of new Taylor Lautner stills from Abduction have dropped this week, and you can check out both here.
Finally, MTV has released the full series of videos from its The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 Thursday, and I’m attaching the full load of them in the video sidebar section in case you missed them.
That’s all for now!
