We saw an advance screening of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn, part 1″ last night. B 98.5 FM Morning Show members Vikki Locke, Kelly Stevens and Jessica Forkel were on hand to get the crowd revved up with trivia contest and giveaways.
Not that the crowd needed much revving up. The theater at Regal Atlanta Station was packed to the gills with diehard Twi-hards.
So, the movie. We don’t want to give away details, since the movie hasn’t officially opened yet. Suffice it to say the movie, which will come as no surprise to fans of the books and series, is much gorier than others. Childbirth is usually a messy affair. The birth of a half-human, half-vampire is off-the-charts messy!
Given the many grim moments you know are coming, there are many bits of humor early on, including many quips that only insiders will get. We attended with a friend who has devoured each of the books numerous times and she had to clue us in at times. She rated this movie far better than the others, because it hews very closely to the books. It sounds like readers will be rewarded for their knowledge of details that someone who has only seen the movies wouldn’t have.
OK we don’t want to ruin it for you, so we’ll close with some quotes from Robert Pattinson discussing the love scenes with Kristen Stewart on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Ellen: How was that scene to shoot? Was that awkward? Was it like, you are so used to being around the crew and everybody that it’s not that big of a deal?
Rob: The baby delivery or the baby making?
Ellen: The baby making.
Rob: There was a bit too much butt crack I think. That was one thing I know they cut out. They didn’t cut the shot or what ever they just cut the crack out.
Ellen: How do you cut the crack out?
Rob: They just painted over it.
So, that’s something to watch for. Are you looking forward to this latest Twilight? Team Edward or Team Jacob?
