We recently reported the filming locations for the final Twilight film Breaking Dawn. Many fans questioned why the crew would shoot in Baton Rouge. We understand the confusion, as previous Twilight films have been set in generally cold and wet places (necessary for a Forks-like atmosphere) like Portland and Vancouver, and we’re here to clear it up for you! Beware the following spoiler:
In the books Edward and Bella honeymoon on a private island off the coast of Brazil. JSYK suspects the Baton Rouge set is being used for the honeymoon portion of the film because, as you might imagine, Vancouver isn’t exactly the ideal setting for a tropical island vacation.
JSYK also reports that it’s a possibility that Summit execs are using this as an opportunity to help rebuild the economy in places such as Louisiana that have been negatively affected by the BP oil spill.
It seems like everything is coming at us in three dimensions nowadays and it looks like maybe even the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn might even follow the trend.
Patrick Lussier, director of Summit’s upcoming 3-D film ‘Drive Angry,’ says that Summit is fascinated by the technology.
“They’re completely fascinated and intrigued by the technology, I think Summit has been discovering, as they’ve been seeing the 3-D material and the ease we’ve been able to work with it, is that it’s an incredibly viable format to work in,” said Lussier.
Richard Fay, distribution head for Summit, says “That decision has yet to be made. It’s still the source of a discussion There’s certainly a financial part of the discussion and yes, there’s a certain amount of technology that has to be considered and accounted for. But it really comes down to the creative folks.
“In any of these round table conversations, [Summit CEO] Rob Friedman has always been concerned about the ‘Twilight’ patron. His concern is always the people that come in to see this movie. He doesn’t want to turn them off or offend. That’s why it’s a creative decision. A big factor is the perception of our audience. What are their feelings going to be? If it lends itself to being a better movie because of 3-D, then that’s the technology we’ll use.”

If you haven’t had your fill of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse yet, you now have incentive to check it out this weekend.
MTV has confirmed that various members from the cast will be making surprise appearances in theaters across the country this weekend.
There is no word yet of exactly which cast members will appear or where, so you’ll have to keep an eye and ear out. We’re sure that no matter who shows up, it will definitely cause a lot of screams.
Which Twilight actor or actress would you like to see pop up in your theater?
We all figured Eclipse would dominate this weekend, but it might be dominating every other mid-week opening in history. Eclipse is expected to have the best-ever mid-week opening, with a $65 million.
Eclipse pulled in $30 million in midnight showings alone breaking the record previously set by it’s predecessor “New Moon” last year which made $26.3 million it’s opening.
Eclipse opened in 4,416 theaters, which also broke a record previously set by Iron Man 2 with 4,380 theaters.
Breaking yet another record Eclipse made $1 million in IMAX theaters which breaks the record of $959,000 set by Transformers 2.
Eclipse has high hopes of breaking the Spiderman 2 record of the best Fourth of July opening weekend, pulling in $180 million. Right now Eclipse is expected to pull $142 million, but with the good reviews and it’s new appeal to boys, word of mouth could push those number up.
That means all of us twihards got to go see it AGAIN and AGAIN!
Were you one of the Twi-hards that caught a midnight or even opening day showing of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse? If so, you were in good company.
The third movie in the series made over $30 million in estimated boxoffice just from midnight showings! New Moon made $26.3 million from midnight showings on opening day. Wow!
Midnight screenings of Eclipse in IMAX grossed an estimated $1 million-plus, surpassing the record previously held by Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen.
We can’t even imagine what the total box office will be at the end of the holiday weekend. We’re sure it’ll be huge!
