New images from Breaking Dawn Part 2 arrive

And director Bill Condon discusses what we can expect from the finale

With the curtain set to fall on the Twilight saga once and for all, a couple of new images have been released from Breaking Dawn - Part 2, while director Bill Condon has also taken the time to share some insight on how the series will come to a close.

"The running time is one hour and 56 minutes," says Condon, perhaps in an attempt to mollify that section of the audience who might not be attending through choice. "One minute shorter than the first one and as such, I think the shortest of all of them."

As for the pressure of delivering the film's grand finale, Condon seems confident in what he has managed to capture. "I would say the whole climax, I feel like it’s the biggest musical number I’ve ever directed. It does feel, when you finally get the rhythm of that right, it makes it, I hope, very satisfying."

The final film will place the spotlight firmly on the Cullen child, Renesmee, and Condon also dropped a few hints as to how her powers will be depicted onscreen.

"Her power, she touches somebody and she can show them what’s in her head. Just recently in the mixing, Dane Davis had her just speak and read poetry and things like that, and he’s turned it into hundreds of tracks. It’s a very abstract effect that I’ve never heard before. It’s really cool."

Breaking Dawn pt. 2
will open in the UK on 16 November 2012.

      Rob looks really good in the first photo though. He's genuinely gotten better looking from the first movie. Thank goodness this franchise is ending, after the recent scandal it would've been awful for him to have to make another movie of this.

      Happy to see the back of it?? It's disrespectful of you to even suggest that. The 'Twilight' franchise has been very successful, and just as popular as the 'Harry Potter' franchise. It WILL be missed, even by people who claim the opposite. 'Twilight' was already a much-loved book series before the movies were made. Thanks for posting the pics, I like the international diversity of the group pic, the vampire covens look interesting. Robert looks great in the solo pic. Pattinson has been delightful in the role of Edward since the first movie.

      Being a successful franchise doesn't means its any good, look at Pirates of the Carribean and Transformers. Twilight looks dated and anaemic compared to The Hunger Games, which managed to be both popular AND critically acclaimed.
