    How in the world are they gonna turn that awful book into two movies. Honestly the worse book I’ve ever read.

  • neil

    Honestly, they’re just trying to copy Harry Potter and are trying to make Harry Potter look bad. The only reason the movies are so popular is because of a fan craze for an ugly-haired, stubbled Robert Pattinson.
    I’m not gonna say the storyline is bad, but one movie is enough.

  • Nicole

    YES! I hope they don’t release them too far apart though…

  • good-one

    So Ashley Greene called it right: “Breaking Dawn is Better in Two”.

  • Inna

    lol well might as well squeeze every single, last drop of corporate franchise juice you can. hell, i know i’ll it anyway. haha (:

  • danni

    The plot for the last book was horrible. I was a fan of the series until that last book. Not a good way to end a series. I mean there was so many things wrong with that story it was ridiculous.

    eew at least 2 more years of dealing with annoying twihard fans

  • NElliefrellie

    it’s official, Twilight wants to be Harry Potter

  • muse

    I enjoy the Twilight Saga, but I just dont understand how they have to make the last book into TWO movies. The book is big, but not THAT big where there has to be two. It would have been just as great as one. Guess they can make more money off of it though.

  • rose

    im personally happy with this. in one movie or two it doesnt bother me because breaking dawn is my favourite in the whole series. bella finally becomes a vampire and a mama.

  • Anika

    @neil:

    YOU ARE SO RIGHT.

    They could really just make a 3hr film or whatever. You don’t need two films. Harry Potter is really a massive book so it’s acceptable. Little Women was longer than Breaking Dawn but they didn’t make it into a double film. Summit just wants to outshine Warner Bros. Which is going to be a super fail.

    @NElliefrellie is also right.

  • disappointed

    I use to really like Kristen Stewart, but then she came to my country (Australia) and flipped everyone the bird, and then compared being hounded by the paps to rape.
    She has never gone through that act of violence, and I wouldnt wish it on anyone, its horrifying and how dare she compare anything in her perfect little life to something like that.
    I use to be a fan of you Kristen, but that was just too stupid of you. Im really disappointed in you and your actions.
    I really couldnt be bothered to pay money to go see her in any more movies. Shes really let fans and me down. Thats just sad.
    And people can write back to this, say Im a hater, but Im voicing my own opinion and I use to stand up for her, but that comment, her behaviour and actions, have just blown it. Ive had enough of defending or aprrecicating someone who can say stuff like that and not be ashamed by ehr actions. :(

  • JORDAN

    THEY ARE COPYING HARRY POTTER. HARRY POTTER WILL GO AS THE GREATEST BOOK INTO MOVIE IN HISTORY OVER THE ENTIRE WORLD WILL TWILIGHT WILL ONLY BE A UNITED STATES THING. MY GOSH. COPY CAT!!!!

  • Jenny

    OFFICIALLY HARRY POTTER COPY CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LeHuh?

    I don’t understand how they can stretch this into two movies. Yes, the book is huge, but it’s mostly conversation and Bella’s inner monologue with some random wolf crap. There’s a wedding, a baby, and a fight that never really happened. I think one movie would’ve covered that.
    Meanwhile, I agree with everyone who is saying they’re copying Harry Potter. The only difference is that Deathly Hallows NEEDED to be split into two movies because there’s so much plot to tie up. There’s the horcrux plot AND the deathly hallows plot. I mean, the battle of Hogwarts is going to take up copious amounts of time all on its own, not to mention the epilogue that also needs to be tied up. Two movies was the only way to do it. Summit fails and everyone will let them know about it. They’ll forever be known as the Potter copy-cats.

  • Joochi

    Don’t know really why they want to make it 2 films it’s bad enough Kristen doesn’t like to be in the public eye to they’re going to punish up more, enough of this series Harry Potter was way better than this sick movie.

  • lala

    they just want more money..breaking dawn worst book ever..i see no point in turning it in to two movies…only reason the movies are doing great coz of the talentless good looking actors they have

  • bethanyy

    @neil: i totally agree with you.

  • EWW

    Wow, this just fails. Copying Harry Potter much? And like fine if it had to be a crappy book, but trying to prolong the hype and trying to put off the inevitable – that Twilight will be over the moment the movies finish? Pathetic. Another year of Twitards… joy.

  • http://ablessingindiguise.tumblr.com nadnad

    not too excited. i love the twilight saga. but i mean, there’s not too much action. it’s just filled with naration.

  • megan

    wow, really? i like the Twilight books. Kinda growing out of the movies. I’ve been more interested in the Harry Potter Series, both book and movies. the seventh Harry Potter book NEEDS to be in two parts because they don’t want to screw anything up. there is soooo much stuff in the book that leaving one thing out will ruin it, (they’ve done with with about two in my opinion).
    Breaking Dawn, on the other hand, isn’t that big a deal.
    really? what’s next? are they going to try making a theme park like the wizarding world? try to be somewhat original Summit. it’s getting a little ridiculous.

  • rachel

    @good-one: i think the only reason she wants it in two is then she can earn more money

  • good-one

    @rachel: That was my first impression too, that in order to pay Ashley her higher paycheck, they needed to bring in two films. I wondered if it might have been her suggestion.

    Or, maybe the script was too long and the film had to be split, like she said, and we accept that at face value.

  • green bay

    They just want money!

  • lauren6

    i completelty agree with everyone on here….i love the book series but the fourth one is long but like everyone says not half as long as harry potter…..the deathly hallows is so long its constantly got a storyline and its all action too..where as, breaking dawn is more narrative, then switching from belle – jacob – bella and then its over…but like good-one said the script might be too long to only have one film!

    but why are they not puttin breakin dawn out till november 2011 when they’ll start filming this year why cant they have it out in like july like eclipse?

  • Alysha

    Breaking Dawn is the most atrocious “novel” I have ever read – even worse than the three before it. I can’t believe that they even considered making it ONE movie. They’re just money-wanting, Harry Potter tryhards. Ew. Just…ew.

  • http://Facebook Janara Kimberly Jaducana

    I really like that video especially when they are close together.love them relly

  • Avery Callaghan

    This is a travesty. A monstrosity. An ABOMINATION.

  • coco

    I’m not a Twilight fan and I think all the books are.. dry. These people set their release date for “Part 1″ on November 18th (which is my bday.. worst bday present ever) they are sooooo trying to copy harry potter! well. It WILL NOT be done!

  • Lol22

    Twilight is horrible. It doesn’t even compare to Harry Potter. Harry potter has way more excitement and action then twilight. They are just copying! Harry potter needs 2 movies because it has that much action in it, Breaking Dawn does not.

  • TEAMjacob

    WTF? Twilight Is not harry potter, I read all the books and I think it has no drama, there’s no story, how they gonna make two movies of this horrible book, but the only good part is that i’ll see taylor!!! TEAM JACOB!! and the little girl reneesme, she’s gonna be so cute!!

    HARRY POTTER IS MUCH BETTER THAN TWILIGHT!

  • kaylie

    Who cares? Honestly, I’m much more excited for the Harry Potter films. Not only were the books better, the acting in every single Harry Potter movie completely outshines that of Twilight. They can split Breaking Dawn into as many movies as they please, but they will never beat Harry Potter. The only reason the Twilight Saga is still making movies is because of the cult-like following and Taylor Lautner’s abs.

  • stef

    stop copying harry potter nobody wants to see that terible book split into 2

  • ruby

    YOU GUYS NEED TO STOP HATIN!!!!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY GET A LIFE YOU HAVE TO COMMENT ON U GUYS THINK THEY WANT TO COPY HARRY POTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF YOU DONT LIKE IT THEN LOOK THE OTHER WAY!!!! U DONT HAVE TO GO SEE IT!@!! DAMN LET EM MAKE THEIR MONEY!!!GOSH ITS THEIR DECISION!!!

    I THINK ITS A GOOD IDEA BECAUSE THEY WILL FINALLY BE ABLE TO PUT EVERYTHING DESCRIBED IN THE BOOK AND THEY WONT HAVE TIME AS AN EXCUSE!!!! ITS THE LAST BOOK SO WHY NOT MAKE IT GOOD LIKE THE BOOK!!!!!!!!!!
    p.s. RPATTZ is HOT!!!!!!!!!! always making hot guy lists so enter the 21st cetury already!!!!!!!!!

  • someone

    @ruby: alright first of all writing in all caps like that is not going to makes anyone take you seriously, and second they could have made it into one maybe halfway decent movie but instead theyre gunna make two long boring movies as there is ZERO action in breaking dawn (unless they add some) if you compare deathly hallows to breaking dawn, hallows constantly has something going on while breaking dawn does not, just a moping edward cullen then a moping jacob black then some more moping vampires.

  • !!!!!!!!!!!HEY!!!!!

    THEY ARE COPCATING HARRY POTTER!!! UGHHH!!! why why why
    no matter what HP is a thousand millions times better than twilight..and it will ALWAYS BE!!

  • Amanda

    Yes! the book is too long for one movie.

  • Tally

    WTF a 3 part book make into 2 films? duuuuudddde?

  • http://twitter.com/MarianaChamon @Marianachamon

    only because it’s gonna be in two parts, it’s copying HP? it’s senseless! it’s such a long book, and there are 2 different parts. a movie in 2 parts IS the best option

  • V

    @@Marianachamon:
    I agree with you. how is it copying Harry Potter? I would like to watch it in two cause it’s more detailed and less rushed. although, Summit is overdoing the Twilight stuff, it’s getting annoying.

    and honestly, what’s so great about Harry Potter? I never even bothered to read the books or watch the movies. I found them boring…

  • yo

    Worst movie series EVER!

  • Sahina

    @V: you only found them boring because you “never even bothered to read the books or watch the movies”. if you’d have read the whole series then you’d be able to know if it’s boring or not.

    and as for Breaking Dawn being split into two films, it’s just beyond ridiculous. the whole book is narrative. the only scenes in this book are Bella’s Wedding, Her Honeymoon where she falls pregnant, her birth and becoming a vampire, adjusting to that and the Volturi fight (which never even happens anyway).

    so the first 3 scenes are going to take up 2 hours and 30 minutes of the film? and then the next 2 hours of recruiting all the vampires and no fight?

    sorry but even though i am a fan of the Twilight Saga (but not as much as i used to be) this is just a way of making more money.
    People may say it’s copying Harry Potter, but in a way it is. i’m not saying that other books can’t be split into two parts, but anyone can see that this book doesn’t need to be split into two parts. even i can see it in a 3 hour film!
    Harry Potter, on the other hand, covers everything that people have been wanting to find out from the very first book. it’s more detailed and not narrative.

  • LeHuh?

    @ruby:
    What the hell does RPattz being “hot” have to do with it? That’s a matter of opinion anyway. He looks like a foot to me.
    @V:
    Like Sahina said, if you would’ve given the books a chance you would have a better chance of me taking you seriously. All the Twilight hype has gotten ridiculous. If the books were good then it wouldn’t even be so annoying, but everyone having titfits because of those books is just ridiculous. Breaking Dawn has no real plot and no real action, it’s all just a long conversation. It doesn’t need to be split into two movies.

  • lala

    @disappointed: i agree with you, i was okay with her before but after the rape comment i was like what was she thinking?!…she should just keep her mouth shut about things she doesnt know about. rape and being hounded by paparazzi are two different things. she should apologize to people especially victims that have been offended by her careless words

  • Gina

    They only want to copy Harry, what a pity, harry potter is WAY BETTER that twilight, and they are going the release the firts part in 2011, and Deathly Hallows part two its going to be in 2011, they just want to prove that they are better that harry potter, which is not, and they want to have 2012 free so they can’t compite with harry potter anymore, thats a shame.

  • jessica

    wtf??
    oh this is just great. more of these shitty movies we have to deal with. twilight SUCKS. but i know i wont be seeing this. id rather see harry potter any day.

  • Jsssss

    NOOOOOOOO! I was perfectly fine with four movies and that’s it.

  • marsha

    how the hell can they extend the last book into two movies..seriously nothing happens in Breaking Dawn..even that book was dragged on way to long..very disappointed..I’m boycotting..lol

  • Avery Callaghan

    @ruby: WE need to get a life? Really? I’m sorry, I thought it was the other way around. It’s the Twihards who need to get a life. They have no sense of control. All they do is scream and squeal in people’s ears and rant on about Twilight and how hot Taylor Lautner or Robert Pattinson is, and type in all caps like a madman. It makes no sense. Twilight keeps winning everything they’re nominated for because the fans have nothing else to do but sit in front of the computer all day and vote their non-existent brains out.

    And, sweetie, it won’t do us any good if we “look away”, because everywhere you look, it’s Twilight this, Twilight that, Edward Cullen this, Jacob Black that, and it simply cannot be ignored.

    @V: There’s your answer right there. You don’t like Harry Potter because you “never even bothered to read the books or watch the movies”. That’s every Twilight fan’s argument against Harry Potter, and frankly, it’s really very judgmental of you. Maybe if you did bother to read and/or watch them, you would know that there are things that are worlds better than your precious Twilight franchise.
