Summit Sues Over Leaked Breaking Dawn Photos

Aug 2, 2011 10:10 AM

Summit Entertainment just made that loud and clear. The production company announced Monday that they have taken legal action against the individuals allegedly responsible for leaking Breaking Dawn photos in March.

While the investigation is ongoing, Summit believes the leak came from Posadas, Argentina, and Daiana Santia is being singled out as one of the members of a group believed to have stolen footage of the film.

The international investigation has led to civil charges being field in the United States and Argentina, and criminal charges in Santia's home country.

David Friedman, Summit Entertainment's Executive VP and general counsel, said in the press release:

    “While we very much appreciate the legions of committed fans of the franchise and encourage them to create community online, we cannot ignore that property was stolen. It is not fair to the majority of fans that want to see the final chapter of the Twilight Saga film franchise fully realized by the filmmaker and dedicated cast and crew to have these images out and available on the Internet.”

Even though studios are generally upset when photos and footage are leaked, few go as far as Summit has and pursued legal action. But part of the appeal of Twilight is seeing how true the movies stay to the book, so the turn of events makes sense.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 will hit theaters November 18, while Part 2 is set for a November 16, 2012, release.

How does star vampire Robert Pattinson feel about the ordeal? Find out ... after the jump.

New Twilight Pics: Bella and Edward's Honeymoon

Apr 28, 2011 11:51 AM

Summit Entertainment

Edward and Bella are on their honeymoon, and apparently the first thing a newlywed couple should do in their bungalow on a private, tropical island is ... play chess.

New photos have surfaced from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I.

Still, while chess might not be super sexy, it is appropriate for the quirky (to say the least) relationship between Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart).

And, we have that bedroom scene to look forward to ... the PG-13 bedroom scene, of course.

The honeymoon scenes were mostly shot near the town of Paraty in Brazil. The flick comes out Nov. 18.

Twilight Producers Plead With Fans To Stop Posting Leaked Photos From Breaking Dawn

Apr 2, 2011 10:52 AM

kstewbedbreaking230.jpg Leaked stills of Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson in bed were recently posted online via Twitter, and though Summit Entertainment shut down the original source, a handful of the sexy photos are still online. The photo here was NOT one of the ones that hit the web -- in fact, the ones that are still floating around are said to be even more revealing than this!

Yesterday Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon, producer Wyck Godfrey and Summit Entertainment released the following statement:

    As some of you may know, pictures and screen grabs of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn as a work in progress have leaked on the internet. We are extremely proud of this film and also extremely heartbroken to see it out there at this stage.

    The film and these images are not yet ready or in their proper context. They were illegally obtained and their early dissemination is deeply upsetting to the actors, the filmmakers and Summit who are working so hard to bring these movies to fruition to you in November 2011 and November 2012.

    Please, for those who are posting, stop. And please, though the temptation is high, don’t view or pass on these images. Wait for the film in its beautiful, finished entirety to thrill you."

Summit insiders tell THR that the studio doesn't have any plans to sue, but if they identify the invidividual responsible for the leak, that may change!

Jan 6, 2011 06:27 AM

kristenjohnny.jpgThe last installment in the Twilight series, Eclipse picked up four awards at last night's People's Choice Awards including Favorite Movie -- beating out contenders like The Social Network and Inception.

The film also took the price for Favorite Drama Movie and Favorite On-Screen Team but perhaps most interestingly, Kristen Stewart beat out Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston for Favorite movie Actress for her role as Bella Swan.

Stewart's co-stars weren't so lucky as Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner lost out to Johnny Depp for his role in Alice in Wonderland.

Favorite Movie Star went to Zac Efron instead of to Pattinson.

Adam Sandler got the Favorite Comedic Star and his film Grown Ups won for Favorite Comedic Movie.

In music, Eminem took the prizes for Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Hip Hop Artist and also shared the award for Favorite Song with Rihanna for Love the Way You Lie. Meanwhile, Rihanna also won Favorite Pop Artist.

It wasn't a good night for Glee -- the popular musical series lost out in three categories: Favorite TV Drama, Favorite TV Drama Actor (Hugh Laurie) and Favorite TV Drama Actress (Lisa Edelstein).

Favorite New TV Comedy was Bleep My Dad Says and the prize for Drama went to Hawaii Five-O.

SPOILER! - Bella And Edward Die In Breaking Dawn

Jan 1, 2011 09:00 AM

twilightspoiler.jpgSay it ain't so! An insider who claims to have seen the script for Breaking Dawn tells Celebuzz our favorite characters - Edward Cullen and Bella Swan -- DIE in the next-to-last scene during a fight against the Volturi vampires.


As in the book, the film features a confrontation between the vampire world's governing body, the Volturi, and the Cullens over their half human-half vampire baby Renesmee. The book has a happier ending but the film, according to the source, does not:

    "Alice touches that head [Volturi] guy. When she touches the [Volturi] guy he 'sees' what will happen if he continues his course. So, the first person whose head comes off is Carlisle. In the vision. Then everything goes to sh*t and all kinds of dying happens. And Bella and Edward kill Aro. Bella and Edward, they die too. All these other people die, too. Jane and her brother. Lots of deaths on both sides. Then the [Volturi] guy snaps out of it, says he's sorry. Everybody makes up and lives happily ever after."

Is this for real? Were the writers and producers looking for a surprise ending or is this just a bunch of vampire BS?
