That’s surprising. Harry Potter is doing that as well.

I’m glad. Breaking Dawn is such a long book. So much would have been lost if it was one movie! Yay! I’m so excited! I hope they don’t come out that far apart though.

OMG!! thank god cuz if it was one movie they would have skipped/cut out a lot and seriously november 2011 that is such a big gap!!

Way to copy Harry Potter. Lame.

# 6

Great. Two more movies to endure. When is this going to be over?

# 7

Harry Potter and Twilight are two different movies stop comparing them, they are nothing alike.

# 8

can’t wait for this overrated movie come to an end

LOL. Summit didn’t confirm it too you. You got it from the press release like every other site.

Besides, we knew this was happening months ago. Every reliable site out there was reporting that it was going to be two movies.

Way to copy Harry Potter. Lame. [2]

Harry Potter wanna be

Was anyone worried that this wouldn’t happen. I haven’t read any of the books, but from way back people were saying there was too much information in the last book to do justice to it with one movie. I don’t think they copied Harry Potter, it’s just makes sense. Those that make up the Harry Potter creative group don’t have dibs on doing something that makes common sense and is practical. I’d had been surprise if they hadn’t made it two movies.

Btw if you don’t like the movies or books that’s fine, but you haven’t had to ‘endure’ anything. No one is forced to read any threads regarding the Twilight series either.

They’re going to milk this crap to the bitter end. Thank God Stephanie Meyer didn’t “write” 7 books! Can you imagine?

Yay! xD I can’t wait!

When will the madness stop???
Oh god think of the children! WON’T SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!?!?!?!
*weeps dramatically in the corner*

Great……… NOT!!!!!!!! Why?

1. Copying Harry Potter
2. We have to deal with 2 more crap Movies.
3. Breaking Dawn book was HORRIBLE!
4. Twilight in General is bad.

hahahaha I love how everyone thinks Twilight is absolutely horrible. The movie actually wouldn’t be that bad if Kristen Stewart got acting lessons, it’s like she’s constantly spazzing out. But whatever, fact is, all these actors are making more money than us and probably don’t care if everyone hates there movie, cause they sure are making bank.

So this won’t end until 2012!?!? UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

@sarahc: I second that…they don’t care that they can’t act…they’re rich lol

They’re milking it for all it’s worth! 2 movies is more money than 1! I won’t be surprised if they buy another book out of Stephanie, so they can keep the franchise going.

The big question is where will it be filmed….
I really hope they come back to Vancouver!

@JH:
Just in time for the end of the world.

ok even though harry potter and twilight are two different themes…it would be great if twilight didn’t have to copy the idea of harry potter?…i think they should be original like have an intermission instead of dreading a year to see half of the book
