Big day for Twilight fans — a new photo is now online from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I showing Bella and Edward being intimate on their wedding night.
The image is exclusively available in this week’s print edition of Entertainment Weekly magazine, but a low-quality version has already made its way online. See the image here below.
Back in November, Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon posted the first photo from the film online, which only showed Bella’s hand lying on a bed clutching some feathers. It wasn’t exactly something I found all that exciting, but Twilight fans went crazy for it because of what the image implied — the human Bella (Kirsten Stewart) and the vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson) finally consummating their love.
This new official image of the couple, well, let’s just say I think Twilight fans will really have something to go crazy over this time.
In the EW article, Condon talks about the highly anticipated sex scene, which reportedly took 12 hours to shoot.
“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.”
Other details I’ve read are that Stewart and Pattinson, who have been rumored for years to be a couple in real life, requested there be more nudity in this wedding night scene and that there will actually be three sex scenes in the film.
For more on Breaking Dawn and for the high-quality version of the image, be sure to pick up this week’s EW, which will also feature of other big releases of 2011.
Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 will be released November 18, 2011, with Part 2 coming to theaters on November 16, 2012.
