Bill Condon snakker Breaking Dawn

På mange måter er det vel oppladning nok å se på the pretty, men borte hos HitFix har de et veldig bra intervju med Bill Condon om Breaking Dawn, som også er verdt å få med seg:

(Dessuten kan jeg jo kryssklippe inn all verdens hotness)

"Did you storyboard this movie out more than any you had before?

Yeah, well, it's an effects movie. We have as many effects shots than 'Avatar' or more in the two movies. Especially with big things like the wolves or Renesmee and everyone's powers so it lead to a lot of pre-vizing [pre-visualization] too so that you really are getting a sense of what you need and what visual effects companies are going to be doing the work."

"You actually haven't had that many movies with a good deal of visual effects in them previously. Was that exciting to work on?

It was. Because, let's face it, there is so much you can do now and I think our most spectacular effects I don't think it's even worth talking about before the movie opens, but it's what happens to Bella in the last half of 'Breaking Dawn, pt. 1' and it's just real. If you were making a real movie about a vampire pregnancy and there were no other vampires involved -- if you were making 'Rosemary' Baby' today -- just the subtle things you can do to really communicate the sense of a body under attack and getting weaker and weaker? It's extraordinary. So, learning this stuff has been one of the great joys of doing this movie."

"So, something that would give any director pause would be the fact you're the fourth director these actors have worked with. In TV, where directors come and go, you always hear the actor saying, 'Eh, the director just tells me where to stand. I know the character.' How open were the actors to actually taking more direction than you'd expect?

Well, I don't know about more, but certainly exploring with me and they were incredibly open. Y'know, I keep calling this 'Twilight grows up,' but in a way it is. All of the characters take tremendous steps in this story and that's part of what turned me on to the material, to collaborate with Kristen Stewart as she goes from being the Bella we know in the first three movies to being a bride, being someone who finally has sex, gets pregnant, gets sick, gives birth, dies, become a vampire, becomes a warrior? Just think of that journey. I guess for none of them it was just playing the same old thing. Jacob becomes a man in this movie. He moves away from being the third leg in a triangle and breaks free of that and his background and his family and his pack and becomes his own person. So, that was a journey all the actors were eager and open to collaborate on."

"Was there any actor who surprised you?

I think people will be surprised by everybody. In general, Kristen has such a huge journey to take and to watch her become this fierce, protective, powerful mother figure? I think that will surprise people. Taylor surprised me with his commitment and the dark places he goes to in this movie. And Rob, I think there is some sense that he has relaxed into this part and finally willing to show more of himself. His own charm, wit and grace are in evidence in this movie. It surprised me in how relaxed he seemed in something he's fought a little against before.

You mention you think of this as 'Twilight grows up' because of the events that take place in the film. Is there anything you did with the vampires or werewolves that reflects this as well? Are they more sinister or fearful?

I think certainly that really comes into play in the second movie. These movies so far have mostly dealt with these vegetarians who don't attack humans except for some of the newborns in the last movie and some of the people in the first couple, but here it's a collection from around the world of vampires with specific gifts. So, I think yes, there was a sense of maybe seeing a darker side of them. And I also think we spend a lot more time in the final movie with Arro and his more overtly sinister group of Volturi."

DENNE er fra HitFix via Thinking of Rob.

"I think you know this, I was on the set of 'New Moon' when they shot those first scenes with Michael Sheen and the Volturi and it seemed at the time that it was the funniest thing to him. To be playing this character. Is he just having a ball when you work with him?

Yes, he is. That whole group. It's interesting, because you spend chunks of time with just Rob, Kristen and Taylor and then the Cullens. And there is a moment when it's Volturi time and it just brought a completely different vibe. It's British camp at its best. I don't mean camp in a bad way, I mean just people who are having a blast and being very clever all the time."
