Director Bill Condon has revealed he made a four-hour “supercut” of the last two movies in the popular vampire franchise starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
The final novel in Stephanie Meyer‘s Twilight trilogy, Breaking Dawn, was split into two standalone films which came out a year apart. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 opened in cinemas in November 2011 followed by Part 2 in November 2012.
While putting the finishing touches to Part 1, Condon edited the films together into one continuous piece – but the “supercut” will not appear on the forthcoming Twilight Forever box set, a 10-disc Blu-Ray/12-disc DVD collection due out on November 5.
“I do have a kind of version of those two movies cut into one movie that is not going to be there [on the box set], but I hope one day might emerge,” the director said in an interview with Collider. “I think it would be an interesting experience for those who are really into it.”
Asked whether the epic four-hour film features lots of deleted scenes, or if it is essentially just one cut, Condon replied: “No, it’s just one cut. There are obviously adjustments you have to make and rearranging some of the stuff. Just making it into one seamless thing, making it feel more like the original novel.”
