Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon discusses the Robert and Kristen cheating scandal in this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly, and we may hear from Robert himself very soon on the matter. Robert is scheduled to make a few press appearances next week as he promotes Cosmopolis, and we're taking a look at where he'll be popping up — and what Bill had to say — in this PopSugar Rush.
Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner popped up in Barcelona to promote Breaking Dawn Part 1 today. Director Bill Condon joined them on the red carpet, though costar Kristen Stewart wasn't on hand for the event. She did stop in London yesterday for the UK premiere with Rob and Taylor and was also the center of attention at Monday's LA screening. Fans have only hours to go until the fourth installment in the Twilight series is released, and we've been gearing up for weeks. We're taking a look back at Rob and Kristen filming honeymoon scenes, Edward and Bella's sweetest onscreen moments, and Kristen's fashion transformation over the years — there are even Twilight-inspired cocktails to help you gear up for the much-anticipated midnight release!
Breaking Dawn Part 1 hits theaters Friday, and we've got an exclusive sneak peek at new photos from the fourth installment in the Twilight franchise. We talked to the cast during Monday's LA Breaking Dawn Part 1 premiere, and they were all extremely excited for fans to finally see Edward and Bella tie the knot, and more. In the new stills, director Bill Condon can be seen giving instructions to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart during their romantic honeymoon in addition to taking Rob aside for a private talk before Edward and Bella's highly anticipated wedding scene. Oh, and there's a nice clear shot of Bella's baby bump! Click through to see all the new, behind-the-scenes shots.

Director Bill Condon knew he was taking on a major challenge when he signed on for both Part 1 and Part 2 of Breaking Dawn. We caught up with the man behind the upcoming fourth installment in the Twilight saga at the movie's press day in Beverly Hills recently, where we talked about how he struck the story's balance of horror and romance. He also revealed the thinking behind the way he eventually chose to film the book's gory birth scene and what it was like to create the intimate honeymoon scenes in Brazil with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
Edward and Bella's honeymoon is one scene we'd like to get extended now that Breaking Dawn is officially being broken into two parts, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz show off some fancy soccer footwork, and Jane Lynch honeymoons in Monte Carlo!

Now that it's confirmed Breaking Dawn will be broken into two films, we came up with a wish list of scenes we want director Bill Condon to give more time to.
Perhaps to quell concerns about the book's adaptation, Condon has taken to his Facebook page and posted an open letter to fans. The director is mainly assuring us that he's educating himself on all things Twilight and that he'll be more than able to shift from the musical films he's known for into the dark work that Breaking Dawn has to be.
Read the letter, and let me know whether it soothes any of your fears about the last films, but most importantly, tell me what you're most concerned about regarding Breaking Dawn. Afraid certain scenes won't make it in? Or that certain ones will? Let it all out here! But first, the letter:
Greetings Twihards, Twifans, Twilight Moms, Team Edward, Team Jacob and Team Switzerland,
I just want to say hello to all of you and let you know that I'm stoked to be getting underway on the adventure of making BREAKING DAWN. As you've probably heard, I've been given a very warm welcome by Stephenie and Team Summit — who are super-focused, as you know, on getting these movies right.
