First look at Edward and Bella in Breaking Dawn

It’s the moment Bella – and about a billion heavy-breathing Twihards – have been waiting for, and it’s been captured in all (well, not all) of its glory in this first promotional photo from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One: the wedding night.

Yep, in the first half of the final instalment of the Twilight series, Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) tie the knot, and get down to the business of getting down to business. And from what I’ve read – from Wikipedia; I’m not going near the books – this tender image is not the most accurate reflection of the ferocious human/vampire tryst that will be featured in the movie.

Having trouble wrapping your head around the concept of The Twilight Saga actually showing audiences a sex scene between Bella and Edward? We’re with you. After all, this is a series built around abstinence and sexual repression (and latent homoeroticism and vile domestic abuse allegories…oops, got off track there for a moment). Still, it seems a lot less weird than what happens during the [spoiler alert] birth of their child Renesmee. Did someone say ‘wolfman falls in love with baby’?

Breaking Dawn – directed by Bill Condon – will be released as two films. Part One will hit cinemas November 18, 2011, while Part Two will arrive November 16, 2012, a mere one month before the end of the world. Coincidence!?

Discuss: Is this image too saucy, or not saucy enough?

  1. >I love Twilight and can't wait for it to come out (in fact it's TOO far away until it's released)!! 😦 Until then I don't think the image is too saucy. It shows the love between them and gets the point across. I heard Rob talk yesterday in an interview saying how hard it was to film the scenes so that it wasn't too revealing and looked good etc. In other words, there was a lot of contorting!

  2. >Sorry but have I missed something. Call me completely naive but all I got from Twilight was a beautiful love story not "latent homoeroticism and vile domestic abuse allegories" Maybe I'm enjoying a story just for the sake of really enjoying a story but surely that's better than looking for hidden meanings and bullshit double entendres. Grow up and enjoy things just as they are without trying to be the expert.

    • Well, considering he is a professional critic, ‘trying to be the expert’ seems to go with the territory. And I’m not sure why dumbing things down is seen as ‘growing up’.
