Bella and Edward Twilight Twilight: Breaking Dawn Split Confirmed & 7 New Eclipse Clips

Whilst you wait for the third film in The Twilight Saga to hit theaters, we have a couple of new items regarding the successful franchise: it’s been confirmed that Breaking Dawn will be split into two movies, and we also have 7 new clips from Eclipse for you to take a look at.

BREAKING DAWN SPLIT

After months of speculation, Summit Entertainment has finally confirmed that Breaking Dawn will be released in two parts over the next couple of years. The rumored November 2011 release date stands for Part 1, which will hit theaters on November 18th, 2011. Although there’s no official date set for Part 2, it’s expected to follow in 2012 (likely in the summer).

Those who have read the Breaking Dawn novel say that it’s a lot different than the first three Twilight chapters, dealing with darker and more adults themes (not to mention that it’s the longest book of the series). With the book being a lot heavier than previous ones – added to the fact that Summit will want to to milk this franchise for all it’s worth – I guess it’s no surprise that the studio is pulling a Harry Potter and splitting the movie in two.

Returning for Breaking Dawn are Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Peter Facinelli, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser, Nikki Reed, and Billy Burke. Melissa Rosenberg is again writing the screenplay and the film will be directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls).

ECLIPSE CLIPS

The guys over at Collider have snagged 7 new movie clips from Eclipse, just in case Twlighters need anymore reason to check the film out this summer (beyond the recent image gallery). You may be looking ahead at what’s to come in Breaking Dawn, but let’s not forget we’ve got the third film to deal with before we get to the fourth.

Check out the clips below, brought together in one handy video by Collider:

My main interest in Eclipse is the fact that David Slade (30 Days of Night) is directing it. Say what you will about The Twilight Saga, but you have to admit that with each film there have been some interesting directorial choices: Catherine Hardwicke did Twilight, Chris Weitz did New Moon, Slade did Eclipse and Bill Condon is doing Breaking Dawn. A different director each time allows the films to have their own distinct flavor, despite being part of the same series (see: the Mission: Impossible franchise).

Are you glad or upset that Breaking Dawn will be split into two movies? And what do you think of the latest clips from Eclipse?

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opens on June 30th, 2010.

Part 1 of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn will hit theaters on November 18th, 2011, with Part 2 likely following in the summer of 2012.
