SPOILERS: Stephenie Meyer Address Breaking Dawn 2 Battle Questions

Stephenie Meyer addressed the Breaking Dawn part 2 battle scene on her website and answered some great questions.

IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE MOVIE DO NOT READ THIS POST. SOOOO MANY SPOILERS!


The question, which I got frequently, was how I felt about having a big change inserted into the story during the final climax. My answer was that it didn’t feel like such a huge departure. For me, this moment is already in the book. However, we don’t get to see it in all its exciting and gory detail because we are seeing the world only through Bella’s eyes. A few of the reporters I talked to wanted to know where in the book this moment was hidden. The answer is page 738, fourth paragraph down:
“Aro stared into my eyes for a long, tense moment. I had no idea what he was searching for, or what he found, but after he had measured me for that moment, something in his face changed, a faint shift in the set of his mouth and eyes, and I knew that Aro had made his decision.”
In this short analysis, after Bella has revealed the depth of her power, Aro plays out in his head the probable outcome of a battle with the Cullens. Much like what we see in the movie, Aro foresees a more evenly matched fight than he had expected, the loss of too many of his key players, and—most unacceptable—the likelihood of his own death. Though odds are that the Volturi would have come out on top in the end, Aro wouldn’t have lived to see it and the unassailable nature of the Volturi’s authority would have been broken, possibly forever. It is this vision of the future—though imperfect guesswork on his part—that motivates his retreat.

‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn 2’ Tops, ‘Skyfall’ No. 2 at Thanksgiving Box-Office


“Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” is making the Thanksgiving box-office race a runaway before the turkeys are out of the oven. Summit Entertainment’s franchise finale is on pace for a five-day total of nearly $65 million after taking in an estimated $12.8 million Wednesday.
The overall box office is looking very strong and could be headed to go as high as $275 million for the five days, which would top the previous best Thanksgiving weekend, 2009’s $258.6 million.
Sony’s “Skyfall” looks to have the No. 2 spot secured, with a strong $7.3 million Wednesday that gives it a shot at $50 million over the holiday weekend.
DreamWorks Animation’s “Rise of the Guardians” brought in $4.9 million Wednesday and will get a word-of-mouth boost after receiving an “A” CinemaScore from first-day audiences. A five-day total of around $33 million, at the low end of expectations, is likely.

A special letter to Twilight fans from Bill Condon


Greetings to our global Twihard family,

On the flight now from Madrid to Berlin, I wanted to check in one last time, as you're finally getting a look at what we've all been working on so intensely.  It's hard to believe that after our Berlin premiere tonight, my TWILIGHT journey will finally come to a close.  It's been almost three years since I first wrote to you.  I'm very proud of what we've created together since then, and I hope that PART II fulfills your expectations for the grand finale to Stephenie's sprawling saga. Fingers crossed that you've also managed to stay at least mostly spoiler-free, in order to enjoy the twists and parting gifts we have in store for you...

Thank you again for making me feel like a member of your fandom family online...for sleeping in The Line in San Diego in order to laugh with us in Hall H...for traveling great distances to join us in L.A. for last year's Tent City and this year's Fan Camp.  Above all, thank you for trusting me with this universe you care so deeply about - we tried to match your intensity in our attention to every detail.  That said, I don't think I'll ever live down the shame of being spied on by Twihard covens around the world on our very first night of shooting in Rio.  Thanks to photos shot and instantly posted online of Bella and Edward on their honeymoon, we were called out in real time for missing a certain engagement ring...  (Sorry -- again!)

As with you all, what I'll take with me from my time in Forks are so many great friendships - our massive cast of talented actors, and new creative partners such as Melissa Rosenberg, Guillermo Navarro and Phil Tippett.  I hope to know them all for years and to work with them again soon, making movies yet to be dreamed up.  At the L.A. premiere Monday night, Phil said we should make a "bloody, giant monster movie."  But is there room for a musical number? 

See you at the theatre.

Forever,
Bill
