Ending of ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2’ possibly changed with new sequence

Stephenie Meyer, the author of the “Twilight” series, and Melissa Rosenberg, screen writer confirmed last month that they sat down over lunch and rewrote the near the end or the end of the movie.

On Friday, Kellan Lutz encouraged fans to stay for the credits for an additional scene.

And Lutz also confirmed when he spoke to The Insider that director Bill Condon that he took liberties with a few scenes from the book.

This is what Condon said,

“Every film’s been building and building, and Bill Condon really had a great idea with ending the series with Breaking Dawn 2, and just adding a little more flavor to parts of the book that weren’t there, but he elaborated more on,” he says. “I think the fans are really going to enjoy it.”

So, since Meyer stated that she and Rosenberg met to rewrite a scene near the end and Condon confirmed that he added a little flavor to the film, fans are speculating that these changes have to do with the final battle that let readers down when they came to that chapter in the book.

Maybe he makes the fight scene more? What do you all think has been changed in the movie?

New ‘The Walking Dead’ webisodes coming Oct. 1st

The Walking Dead” addicts won’t have to wait until the season three premiere on October 14th to get more stories from within the zombie apocalypse. AMC recently announced that they are releasing another series of “The Walking Dead” webisodes on October 1st, produced by Greg Nicotero.

Through four five-minute webisodes, we will witness the story of a new group of characters in the early days of the zombie apocalypse. The webseries is titled “Cold Storage” and stars Daniel Roebuck of “Lost” and Josh Stewart. According to AMC:

Cold Storage tells the story of a young man, Chase (played by Josh Stewart), trying to reach his sister in the early days of the zombie apocalypse. He finds temporary shelter in a storage facility run by a former employee named B.J. (Roebuck); however, things are not what they appear.

Co-executive Producer and special effects makeup designer Greg Nicotero will produce the webisodes, much like he did with last season’s webisode series, “Everything Dies,” which told the story of the Bicycle Girl, TWD’s most iconic walker. Nicotero himself won a WGA award for Outstanding Achievement in Writing Derivative New Media for those webisodes.

Fans will get to watch “Cold Storage” online at AMCTV.com starting October 1st. Tune in to get a glimpse of what the end of the world is like for people outside of Rick Grimes’s band of survivors.

Video of Elena’s first moments as a vampire are revealed on CW clip

On Friday, the CW released a clip showing Elena’s first moments as a vampire on the fourth season of “The Vampire Diaries“.

The video may be seen here.

It shows a very concerned Damon and Stefan waiting by Elena’s side. they are both waiting for her to awake and when she does the two fall right into their characters.

Stefan tries to sugar coat the explanation for Elena while Damon shows his anger towards Stefan for saving Matt first.

When she realizes that she is really dead, Elena reacts the way that we expect. She is mad.

But, this season should be really interesting because it has been confirmed that Elena will spend the first part of the season with Stefan and the second part with Damon. The turning point is when her human memories return, the glamouring that Damon did to make her forget that she met him is gone and she remembers their conversation.

This is going to be a very interesting season. What do you think about the video?

Justice League gets a new artist and crosses over with Aquaman

DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns writes both Justice League and Aquaman so it only makes sense the two titles would eventually crossover.

Starting in December with issues 15, JL and Aquaman will begin their “Throne of Atlantis” storyline. The story sees the army of Atlantis, being led by long-time Aquaman villain Ocean Master, attacking the surface world.

“There’s still questions of what Atlantis is like and what they do and what they’re capable of and why they exist and who sank Atlantis,” writer Geoff Johns teased to USA TODAY. “There’s all this mythology behind Atlantis that we’re not really sure of and no one really has any answers, and we’re about to get the answers.”

DC also announced that Ivan Reis the artist behind the Aquaman book will be taking his talents to Justice League as seen in the cover to issue #15. Co-publisher Jim Lee will be stepping down from his art duties on the book. The artist who will be taking over Aquaman has yet to be announced.

The team roster seems to have been tweaked a little as SHAZAM is now part of the group, but noticeably absent are Green Lantern and the Flash. Their whereabouts will be revealed when the story gets underway in December.

‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ filming moves to Atlanta’s Swan House

‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ filming moves to Atlanta’s Swan House

Filming on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire moves to the historic Swan House in Atlanta this week, for a party scene in the Capitol.

News about filming on Catching Fire was relatively quiet last week, after a bevy of photos revealed actors on set (and in costume) during their first week on set earlier this month. Last week, Josh Hutcherson even took some time off and was spotted in the Los Angeles area riding his motorcycle and participating in a Straight But Not Narrow fundraiser, while co-star Jena Malone hit up the Emmy Awards over the weekend.

Both are likely back in Atlanta now (or will be soon), though, as crews are expected to film a pivotal scene in Catching Fire this week: a lavish party held in the Capitol for all of the returning victors.

According to The Hob, filming will take place at the Swan House September 26-28th — and will include elaborate, custom-made costumes, “including a suit made out of bricks.”

Some photos have already been seen of crews at work on the site, building additional set pieces. A fan even created an artistic rendering of the party scene featuring the Swan House (see photo above).

The Swan House was built in 1928 for the Edward H. Inman family, and has become one of Atlanta’s most recognized landmarks. The mansion is now kept as an historic site open to the public, and styled to show life during the 1920s and ’30s.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, some scenes will also be filmed at the Clayton County International Park over the next few months, in a man-made water park arena known as “The Beach.” Looking at photos of the area, it seems likely this will be used for filming scenes in the arena.
