I've said this before, that, when you're in school and you're the class clown, men are really good at making fun at other people and women are really good at making fun of themselves.

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.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Bill Condon chose not to show Edward ripping Bella's body open with his teeth during the childbirth because he felt having the audience experience it via sound effects and having Robert Pattinson slightly out of frame made it more potent. He also felt it made the scene more special for viewers who have read the book.
  • Sofia Coppola was very interested in directing this project, but she was only willing to direct one part of {Breaking Dawn}, which Summit wanted to split in two parts.
  • Similar to the book, the film briefly shifts from Bella's point of view to Jacob's. Director Bill Condon commended Taylor Lautner for pushing himself to dig into Jacob's character more to show his side of the story.
  • On the third day of filming in Brazil the cast and crew got stranded overnight on the island location used for Isle Esme due to a severe rain storm. The crew had to cover the furniture and props in the house with tarps to prevent water damage due to the rain and people having wet clothes.
  • The first scenes shot were the honeymoon scenes in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
