MTV is counting down the top 5 films their anticipating for 2011, and Breaking Dawn Part 1 comes in at #2.
Okay, so this one’s a no-brainer. We cannot wait for the fourth installment of the “Twilight” saga—our No. 2 most anticipated film of 2011—to hit theaters November 18.
Like “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” before it, we suspect that the splitting point between Parts 1 and 2 will be a well-guarded secret. It’s likely, however, that the first movie will end around the start of Book Three: the dividing line between Bella’s human and vampire life.
We can already visualize the possibilities. Bella reaches for the cup of blood, unleashes a bloodcurdling scream and the screen goes blank! Or, Edward delivers the baby, turns to Bella, murmurs, “Renesmee” (signifying that the baby is not the boy Bella dreamed of, but a girl) and the screen goes blank! Or perhaps Bella endures the burning transformation, her heart dramatically stops beating, she opens her vampire eyes for the first time…and the screen goes blank! You get the picture.
Movie buffs willing to give Rob the benefit of the doubt have been holding their breath to see him prove himself as a serious actor. We’re pretty sure 2011 is the year he’ll do just that. Yes, he’ll be reprising his vampire persona in “Breaking Dawn” and showing a more serious side in the period piece “Bel Ami,” but his role in our No. 3 film for 2011, “Water for Elephants,” is what will solidify his place in Hollywood’s shining spotlight.
