Forget those fuzzy screengrabs that have been making the rounds the past couple of days; we have the real thing – a first look at The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 from Entertainment Weekly featuring Bella and Edward as husband and wife on their wedding night.
“It’s one of the most anticipated scenes,” Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon told EW. “I spent a tremendous amount of time thinking about it. The anticipation is part of it, and you want to play with what people expect and maybe subvert it a little and surprise them.” Over Thanksgiving the director teased fans with a separate shot from the scene in question of Bella’s hand clutching some feathers (see that below also as a reminder).
In the highly anticipated next chapter of the blockbuster The Twilight Saga, the newfound married bliss of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) is cut short when a series of betrayals and misfortunes threatens to destroy their world.
After their wedding Bella and Edward travel to Rio de Janeiro for their honeymoon, where they finally give in to their passions. Bella soon discovers she is pregnant, and during a nearly fatal childbirth Edward finally fulfills her wish to become immortal.
But the arrival of their remarkable daughter, Renesmee, sets in motion a perilous chain of events that pits the Cullens and their allies against the Volturi, the fearsome council of vampire leaders, setting the stage for an all-out battle.
The suspenseful and deeply romantic Breaking Dawn continues the epic tale of supernatural fantasy and passionate love that has made The Twilight Saga a worldwide phenomenon.
Part 1 of Breaking Dawn (which is being filmed simultaneously with Part 2) is slated to be released in theatres on November 18, 2011. Part 2 will follow a year later on November 16, 2012.
