Let's be honest: Emmett Cullen doesn't always get his due in the big-screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's "The Twilight Saga." But, thankfully, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" director Bill Condon had the good sense to leave in one of the vampire's most beloved moments—in which he cavalierly agrees to arm wrestle newborn Bella...and things don't go as expected.
It's a moment, in fact, that earned praise from both Stephenie and Bill, especially as it relates to Kristen's portrayal of the bloodsucker. And you can hear it all by watching our EXCLUSIVE featurette, which we're debuting in advance of the DVD/Blu-ray release on March 2.
New York Fashion Week may have kicked off just yesterday, but already we've spotted a bevy of our favorite starlets attending stylish fetes and anchoring front-row seats. And, look! Here are two more: "Twilight Saga" cast mates Ashley Greene and Maggie Grace.
Ashley was all Grecian goddess in a floor-length, haltered gown at last night's amfAR New York Gala, while Maggie opted for a more casual blue blazer and leather leggings for today's Richard Chai Love and Richard Chai Men's Fall show at Lincoln Center.
Your Blu-ray/DVD collection will get a serious "Twilight" bite on March 2. Because in addition to the previously announced extended edition of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" (boasting EIGHT ADDITIONAL MINUTES OF FOOTAGE), Lionsgate has revealed that the home video version of the franchise's finale, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," will drop the same day!
All together now: FAAAAAANGTASTIC!
Available for pre-order today, the release features a slew of behind-the-scenes extras and sneak peeks (we'd expect nothing less). In addition to audio commentary from director Bill Condon, fans can look forward to a seven-part making-of documentary titled "Forever: Filming 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2,'" plus Green Day's "The Forgotten" music video, a "Two Movies at Once" featurette and a jump function that allows you to skip to your favorite Edward Cullen or Jacob Black moments. All in all, a fitting conclusion for our beloved vegetarian vamps.

Once the credits rolled on "The Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn: Part 2," you probably thought that the heyday of the brooding, sparkly vampire was finally at an end...you fool. Don't you realize that Edward and Bella's story will never be over?! Never! YOU WILL PRY IT FROM OUR COLD, DEAD HANDS. And next up in our never-ending love affair with all things "Twilight": a just-announced new edition of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," releasing March 2 on DVD and Blu-ray, that contains a whopping eight additional minutes of never-before-seen footage from the film.
Director Bill Condon has promised both new and extended scenes, selected for their particular appeal to fans of the literary source material—which means that diehard "Twilight" fans should be getting super-psyched at the chance to see more (more! MOAR!!!) of their favorite bits from the book on the big screen. And while we're not exactly picky about what those eight precious minutes consist of, we've still got a little wishlist of scenes we're hoping to see get bigger and beefier in the extended cut. For instance:
When MTV News compiled its list of the Top 20 Newsmakers of 2012, it came as no surprise that Bella Swan and her vampire coven bit into the No. 1 spot for most click-worthy story of the year. After all, "The Twilight Saga" has been a part of the pop-culture consciousness for more than four years, bringing with it a fangirl army stronger than the most ravenous of newborn bloodsuckers. And as the sun set on the film franchise in November, with the premiere of "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," it ended not with a whimper but a bang. To wit, here's our GIF Guide to the year in "Twilight":
As twilight falls on 2012 (you'll see where we're going with this in a sec), we can’t help but revisit the final "Twilight Saga" film, "Breaking Dawn – Part 2." After all, it was a pretty epic conclusion, and we'll admit the film wouldn't really be the same without its well-crafted soundtrack.
So, when Reeve Carney stopped by to chat about starring in Taylor Swift’s "I Knew You Were Trouble" music video, we also got the musician/actor to reflect on helping close out the saga with his soundtrack tune, "New For You."
"That was so great. It was amazing. I’m just honored. I’ve always been a fan of the films and the soundtracks, and so the chance to be a part of that grand heritage of ‘Twilight,’ or whatever you want to call it, it was an honor," he said. "And I actually—Bill Condon, the director, allowed me to preview a scene that I wrote the music [for]. So that was really great. That helped a lot cause it allowed me to try and get into the hearts of the characters. So I wrote the song specifically for the film. I saw the love scene. It was so nice they let me see it."
The critics might have been split on whether Kristen Stewart's sheer chiffon-and-lace beige bustier dress from the L.A. premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" was a style stunner or a fashion faux pas, but at least we can all agree that she's taking it off for a good cause! According to GossipCop, the actress has offered up her autographed Zuhair Murad gown to the Hurricane Sandy relief effort.
This isn't Kristen's first contribution on behalf of the recovery effort since the storm carved a path of destruction along much of the Jersey coast; her dressy donation comes in the wake of an appearance at the star-studded 12-12-12 benefit, where she made a speech to encourage support. And thanks to her latest contribution, the dress is being auctioned online at Charitybuzz as we speak, with proceeds to benefit the Robin Hood Foundation.
FROM NEXTMOVIE: Well this...stinks.
Ever wondered what the conclusion to "The Twilight Saga" would look (...and sound..and smell) like with more flatulence? Yeah, us neither. But our weird friends at NextMovie have, and they knew just the scene in which to let the ol' whoopee cushion rip. (Don't pretend you didn't ask Bella to take a whiff, Jacob!)
Be sure to press play on the clip above...but only if you have a nose plug handy.
Now that "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" has hit theaters, nearly blowing our heads clean off with that twist ending (see what we did there?), all that's really left to ponder about the franchise finale is what goodies fans will find on the DVD. While we're keeping our fingers crossed for that bloodsucker boogie sequence, director Bill Condon listed a couple of deleted moments we can expect to see on the release.
"There are a few scenes of the Volturi traveling around the world," he revealed. "There's one scene of Bella training that seemed to be redundant, so we took it out. Then there's a big speech out in the field that we'll see a rough version of one the DVD."
