Synopsis: The Quileutes close in on expecting parents Edward and Bella, whose unborn child poses a threat to the Wolf Pack and the towns people of Forks.

Reaction: The theatrical version is already too long and slowly paced. And then they restore eight minutes of footage?

Personal Rating: 6/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Stephenie Meyer handpicked [?] Carolina Herrera to design Bella's wedding dress. Herrera was pleased when Kristen Stewart loved the dress because her ultimate goal was to please the bride. Costume designer [?] Michael Wilkinson worked closely with Ashley Greene to design Alice's dress worn at the wedding. They decided on a flapper-like dress to reflect her native time period of the 1920s. Wilkinson also worked closely with Nikki Reed to create Rosalie's dress.
  • Robert Pattinson took a boat driving lesson so he would be able to drive the boat in the honeymoon scenes. Despite taking lessons, he crashed the boat in both the lessons and while filming in Brazil.
  • Takes place in a period of one full month. The Twilight character guide points out that Renesmee's birthday is 11 September, thus at the film's cliffhanger scene, it takes place the next morning (12 September).
  • Robert Pattinson learned to speak Portuguese for the scenes where Edward interacts with the housekeepers, Gustavo (Sebastião Lemos) and Kaure (Carolina Virguez) in Brazil.
  • Robert Pattinson went through a strict diet and exercise regime for six months in preparation before filming. He stopped his routine after filming the much-talked-about sex scene.
