The "Twilight" saga is coming to a close, much to the heartbreak of millions of fans worldwide. However, it's something of a comfort to hear that ending the series has made for some amazing memories for the cast and crew.
Director Bill Condon spoke with MTV News about "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" as the film enters the last stages of post-production in preparation for hitting theaters on Nov. 16. It sounds like wrapping up the story of Bella, Edward and Jacob has been a blast.
Condon reveals some details about the film's breathtaking climax, a particular special effect that he calls "the best Hammer horror movie you've ever seen," what he considers to be the film's most emotional moment and even the official running time in his interview with MTV News. You can also check out some exclusive new pics from "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" in MTV's Fall Movie Preview.
"The Hunger Games" may be the biggest pop culture phenomenon in the world right now, but "The Twilight Saga" still has at least a few tricks up its sleeve — and director Bill Condon is pulling out all the stops to make sure that the final installment will be the best yet.
Case in point: According to Condon, the cast and crew of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" are getting ready to film new footage for the movie in preparation for its November 16 debut.

Before getting into my take on "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" DVD, let's review what we already know about the film. 1) Bella and Edward totally do it. 2) I thought I saw a nip slip. 3) It is the lowest reviewed "Twilight" film on Rotten Tomatoes. 4) Peter Facinelli awkwardly autographed my copy of the DVD.
Great, now that we're all on the same page, let's get into what I thought about and learned from the bonus features and repeated viewings of movie.
For Twi-hards, the arrival of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" on November 18 is bittersweet, as it's the first part of the final book in the series written by Stephenie Meyer. But it also marks a point at which circumstances change drastically for everyone involved, and the film's cast and director took care to address that at yesterday's "Breaking Dawn" press conference in Los Angeles.
The first three movies in the series have led up to this, the epic wedding between Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). After years of longing looks and restrained passion, Bella finally marries her undead beau and they take off to Rio de Janeiro for their honeymoon. When Bella discovers she is pregnant with a rapidly growing hybrid baby that is killing her, she is whisked home, and the wolves -- including best bud/backburner man Jacob (Taylor Lautner) -- want to retaliate against the Cullens for putting Bella in harm's way.

It's fair to say that many people consider themselves to be hardcore "Twilight" fans -- but are they fans of "Twilight" hardcore?
Well, luckily we won't have to find out, because MTV has just logged an exclusive conversation with "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" director Bill Condon and he revealed exactly why the MPAA asked him to tone down Bella and Edward's infamous honeymoon sex scene.
So what exactly will fans be getting en eyeful of when "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" hits theaters on Nov. 18? Head over to MTV to find out -- and discover just why we never want to hear the words "Twilight" and "thrusting" in the same sentence again.
It seems like everyone wants to be a part of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn," even the biggest stars. James Franco admitted back in December that he petitioned for a role in the film, but is it true? Bill Condon confirmed that it is indeed fact, though he didn't think it would have been a good fit.
"For a moment it was like, what could James Franco play that doesn't feel like 'Where's Waldo?'" the director told MTV News about the decision.
So, was it his star power that kept the actor from playing a part in the franchise? Head over to MTV News to see the whole interview.
The summer is officially upon us and you know what that means: It's a time for weddings. Or in the case of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," the most epic wedding ever.
This Sunday's MTV Movie Awards is set to debut the first clip from the highly anticipated next installment of the "Twilight Saga," and MTV decided to amp the anticipation up to 11 by releasing a tease of this weekend's footage. Set to the grandiose vocals of a belting choir, the short snippet gives us our first look at Bella and Edward's big moment. If you thought people were going nuts over the Royal Wedding, wait until this full clip its the net.
Making matters even more squee-worthy, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are all confirmed to attend Sunday night to introduce the clip. Get More »
Twi-hards (and, admittedly, some NextMovie staffers) will be shedding a tear when the final installment of "The Twilight Saga" reaches its closing credits. But we're not the only ones.
"It got a little melancholy," Peter Facinelli told MTV News of filming "Breaking Dawn"'s epic final scene. "It was sad."
Dr. Cullen wouldn't spill too many details on the final scene besides that it has "lots of vampires" in it. But he did offer his thoughts on director Bill Condon.
