Alternate Versions

Extended cut adds the following 7 minutes of footage:
  • The opening titles are now shown in blue instead of red.
  • Alternate opening: At the Volturi headquarters, Valentina, a human, hands the Edward and Bella's wedding invitation card to Aro. Caius comments that the invitation as the Cullen's style of declaring of Bella's forthcoming "embrace" as a vampire and a way of mocking the Volturi for their delays. While the three leave the room, Aro's servants disposed Valentina along with the pile of dead humans.
  • In the "Bride of Frankenstein" scene, Edwards sits down on his hat and leaves the theater while the audience is frightened at the movie.
  • Esme Island: Edward makes breakfast for Bella. She comments about being hungry and they talk about her upcoming "turning". They kiss again just before the housekeepers arrive on boat.
  • Esme asks Rosalie to prepare some food for Jacob while watching over a sick Bella. Jacob at first declines but Esme insisted Rosalie to do so. She comes back with a hot dog on a dog bowl. Jacob takes a bit and then throws the bowl at Rosalie much to Emmet and Edward's laughter. Unimpressed, Rosalie simply leaves the room.
  • Alice joins Jacob at the balcony saying that standing next to him is like closing her eyes. Jacob could only say that he's glad to help.
  • Because Jacob has imprinted with Renesmee, Edward breaks Jacob's arm and throws him at a wall to keep him away from fighting the other werewolves. He later resets his arm.

sooo bad
27 January 2012 | by aasmundk3See all my reviews

Probably one of the worst movies i have ever seen. The movie itself was boring, with no twists or highlights what so ever. The acting, just terrible. No real emotions, or a connection with the audience. Thank god i downloaded this, and therefor didn't waste any money on it. I liked the first Twilight movie. Because, like someone else said, it was new and exciting. But this one, no, simply horrible. I would not recommend this movie to anyone. The only reason this movie is not a huge flop. Is because of all the 12 year old girls who watch it without considering the over all quality of the film. I hope movies like this, does not become a trend within the movie community. Its nothing but a forced, and failed try, in making a good sequel to the first movie, and a good adaptation of the book.
