Summit Entertainment has finally announced the release dates of the two cinematic adaptation parts of the final Twilight book, Breaking Dawn, and fans hoping for a speedy resolution may be disappointed.
As expected, the first part of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn will be released November next year (November 18th, to be exact), but despite initial rumors of a conclusion the following summer, part two won't be released until November 16, 2012. Why the long wait? Possibilities include promotional duties for the first movie delaying shooting for the second, extra time needed for effects work, and a built-in buffer to allow filmmakers the chance to address concerns with the first movie in the second... or maybe Summit just thinks that Twilight movies do better in November. Stay tuned to see if fan outrage moves the second date.
