When it comes to The Twilight Saga, any news concerning lead actors Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart is big news. Combine their names with the announcement of an international promotional tour for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, and, these days, that news becomes huge.
Today Deadline trumped its competitors and made not one but two unequivocal announcements. First up, Nikke Finke’s exclusive that Summit would be “sending its cast on another major international promotional tour before the movie opens on November 16th.”
This was followed by a statement that the tour would see “the reunion” of “star-crossed lovers Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.”
“After their separation was sensationalized around the world, the pair are back together and I hear they’re about to make some of the promotional appearances together. The fans will go nuts.”
On top of the recently revealed November 12 date for the world premiere of the last installment at the Nokia Theater at L.A. Live, London will also welcome Pattinson, Stewart, Lautner, director Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Gods and Monsters, Chicago) and grand-dame author Stephenie Meyer for a premiere on November 14.
The tour proper kicks off October 14. Pattinson, Stewart, Lautner, and additional cast will hit national US talk shows and make special appearances in Australia, Brazil, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Norway, Scotland, Spain, South Africa and the UK in the lead up to Breaking Dawn — Part 2’s November 16 release.
Interestingly, Deadline also report that the tour will intentionally “mirror” the final installment’s international tone, noting that in BD2 the Cullen clan reach out to vampire covens around the world as they rally for an impending attack by the Volturi, who seek to destroy Edward and Bella’s half vampire-half human child, Renesmee, played by 11-year-old Mackenzie Foy.
Here’s the tour schedule courtesy of Deadline who also note these listings are subject to change.
In addition, the final movie poster for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 will be unveiled on Tuesday October 2 at 9 am PT after six separate portions are released throughout today and tomorrow. A worldwide 24-hour countdown beginning in New Zealand and finishing in L.A will ramp up excitement for the big reveal. The final one-sheet will then be displayed on Facebook pages of sites in The Twilight Saga network.
Advance tickets for the November 15 marathon screenings of all the saga installments have already gone on sale. Buckle up and strap in, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is preparing for landing.
