Adding to the other Breaking Dawn-related updates discussed earlier are these miscellaneous items of interest.
- Breaking Dawn trailer #1 + MTV Movie Awards = Most Likely.
Apparently, there is at least one source which states that the trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 will be unveiled at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. While there is no available official response to this rumor, there are a couple of things to say about it.
For starters, we all remember that the trailer for New Moon was shown at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards (Eclipse‘s first trailer came out months before the 2010 show, since the film’s release date was so near to it). New Moon‘s release date was November 20th, and Breaking Dawn – Part 1‘s is November 18th. The 2009 MTV Movie Awards took place on May 31st, and the 2011 show will be on June 5th. As you can see, the timing is very similar. Similarly, with New Moon, filming had barely wrapped by the time the Movie Awards came along and there was still enough for a trailer. The source cited above states that there’ll only be Part 1 footage in said trailer. Since a great number of those scenes were done before the New Year, there may be similar availability enough to prepare a trailer for the movie. Not to mention, the Twilight series has historically been nominated for and received awards at this event .
So, while it’s still speculation, this is most likely going to be true. (Note that there’s a fan-made trailer for Breaking Dawn attached. It’s received 27+ million views. Wowza.)
- Breaking Dawn panel + Comic-Con = Probable.
For both Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Summit Entertaiment held panels at the San Diego Comic Con for the year of release. With Eclipse, the same was not true – again, a product of being the only non-November release in the Saga – but there was a “special” Eclipse promotional convention in L.A. With Breaking Dawn – Part 1 returning the Saga to the November release schedule, there is a great possibility there would be use for a Breaking Dawn panel at Comic Con.
While it isn’t certain, this is certainly leaning toward the “probable” end of the spectrum.
- Humans shooting in Baton Rouge = Definitely.
All throughout Breaking Dawn‘s production thus far, it has been assumed that the wolves and human castmembers would be necessary in Vancouver, British Columbia and not Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Why? Well, there are a couple of reasons. First of all, that’s what Alex Meraz indicated in October, and, earlier this month, Justin Chon tweeted along the same lines.
Here’s what he said then:
“well i guess im heading to vancouver sooner than i thought to shoot breaking dawn…like end of the month soon”
Now the story has changed up a bit. He and co-stars Michael Welch and Christian Serratos have been tweeting about filming Breaking Dawn in Baton Rouge.
Michael Welch: I’m off to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to work on a new film called Baking Nan.. wait, that’s not it- It’s called Raking Lawns.. No, hold on… BRRRRREEEAAAKKKIIIING DAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWNN!! Thanks for keeping us in there Melissa! I’ll see you all later. Thanks for playing. 🙂
Christian Serratos: Off to Baton Rouge.
Justin Chon: headin to new orleans right now…oyster po boys an gumbo here i come…oh yeah and breaking dawn
So they’re definitely filming in Baton Rouge – the reason why, however, is a separate issue . . .
- Wedding in Arsenal Park = Maybe.
Some are speculating that the outdoor set seen before in Arsenal Park for Breaking Dawn is being used for part of the wedding scene – that this was not the original intention but that things have changed based on the sites available in Baton Rouge. This theory fits neatly with the sudden influx of human actors and it would also explain the need for an outdoor set (the reception, maybe).
It’s a wild guess, but this one gets a maybe.
As long as resident Baton Rougers keep up the effort to see what’s going on (see this report), there’s a chance we’ll know soon enough.
