It’s safe to say that the two Breaking Dawn movies are the most anticipated installments of the Twilight film franchise. Fans of the books know exactly what happens between the human Bella and her vampire love Edward in Stephenie Meyer’s final book, and thanks to all the internet buzz on it, everyone else in the world knows it too.
Spoilers ahead for Breaking Dawn (as if this information is avoidable):
Ok, we know in Breaking Dawn that Bella and Edward get hitched and that they actually consummate the marriage, even though in the Twilight universe, vampire-human sex is quite dangerous to the human. There’s a romantic wedding night for the couple that ends in some kind of feather fiasco. And, Edward manages to impregnate his wife, but having a half-vamp baby inside her is yet another physical danger to Bella.
In the book, Edward must perform a Caesarean section on his wife once her life becomes endangered, though he doesn’t used a scalpel. Nope — the vamp has to use his teeth! Breaking Dawn screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg said last year that the bloody C-section would make it into the film and that the filmmakers wanted it to be just as intense in the film as it was in the book. But that was last year — is the scene still in the film? Actor Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward Cullen in the films, confirms that it is.
Pattinson told TotalFilm about doing the gory scene, “Yeah, I’ve done it… I’ve chewed it, spat it out!” He also said that Breaking Dawn will be “very different to the other films – more like a horror film.”
So rejoice – vampy C-section coming your way!
Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 will be released November 18, 2011, with Part 2 coming to theaters on November 16, 2012.
