MTV’s Fall Movie Preview continues in conjunction with “Twilight” Tuesday to bring you brand spankin’ new images from “Breaking Dawn — Part 2″. Our fancy new photos feature more new vampires along with a swoonworthy shot of Edward (Robert Pattinson) looking postcard perfect.
And that’s not all, we’ve got a double dose of “Twilight” goodness with a few juicy details about the film straight from director Bill Condon, during which we learned the official running time, which vampire power has the coolest visual effect and why the film’s climax will take your breath away.
MTV News: How are you feeling? What stage of the post-production process are you in?
Bill Condon: We’re at the stage of mixing and doing color timing and adding that last big bunch of visual effects shots, and that’s where it gets complicated because the [most challenging] ones always come in last, so it’s just making sure that they look as good as they can, that’s the big thing right now.
MTV: Is there one specific FX shot that you’re particularly pleased with?
Condon: Oh man, there are so many that are so beautiful. I love the way, it’s very creepy, but I love the way that Alec’s mist looks. He has that mist that can make you blind, deaf and dumb, so that’s looking really good. It feels like the best Hammer [horror] movie you’ve ever seen. It’s a little different [type of mist] and sort of has tentacles that can get inside you and all that stuff.
MTV: I’m so excited to see all the powers! I spoke with Mackenzie Foyrecently, the most adorable person the planet, and she talked about how she had fun filming her “power scenes.”
Condon: I know, she’s adorable, right? Her power, she touches somebody and she can show them what’s in her head and that you develop. There are some visual things, but a lot of that is done through Carter Burwell’s score, but then just recently in the mixing Dane Davis, who is a brilliant sound designer, he did “The Matrix” and so many other movies, he had her just speak and read poetry and things like that, and he’s turned it into hundreds of tracks. You don’t actually hear words but it becomes the chattering of her [voice], it’s a very abstract effect that I’ve never heard before. It’s really cool.
