A few weeks ago, Cullen family heartthrob Kellan Lutz -- who isn't exactly known for keeping a lid on his Twilight-related thoughts -- revealed that fans would be in for a surprise after the end of Breaking Dawn Part 2. Stick around for the credits, he said. "There's a really special thing happening."
I figured that's all we'd hear about it until the movie release, but it turns out that Nikki Reed recently blabbed all the details to MTV News. Man, those Cullens can't keep their fang-filled traps shut, can they?
If you'd rather be totally surprised when you see the movie, read no further! Otherwise, I've got the lowdown why you should stay in your seat during Breaking Dawn 2's end credits ... because the "really special thing" does indeed sound special.
Especially weird, that is. According to Reed, the post-credits scene will show all 150 cast members performing a choreographed dance number.
The whole cast. Doing a choreographed dance number. Like Slumdog Millionaire. Only instead of being set to something upbeat like "Jai Ho," it's set to set to the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)."
Huh. Well, I guess I won't criticize until I actually see it? Even though it sounds CHEESY AS HELL and TOTALLY RIDICULOUS and -- oh, right. Not criticizing.
Reed says the routine was something of a flashmob experience for the film's director, Bill Condon.
It was a surprise moment on set that was pretty incredible. That day, there were about 150 of us, and we all came together and surprised Bill. ... It took a couple of practice runs, and we had one drill sergeant who was in charge of gathering everyone. I got really into it. I was so into it that I wanted to be in the front row.
Yeah, I BET it was a surprise. As in, oh crap, they spent so much time on this now I have to include it in the movie.
Maggie Grace, who plays a vampire from the Denali coven in Breaking Dawn 2, says the dance-off was a way to blow off some steam after six weeks of filming in the same area:
We needed the morale boost, I think, to unite us all in vampirehood and joy.
Also, you can expect another '80s-style tribute in the performance:
There's a vampire thing in there. A little "Thriller."
The funk of 40,000 years, tearing up the dance floor! The handsome, sparkly funk, that is.
What's your call on this Twilight dance routine?
Is it going to be awesome ... or not? (Oh my god will the CGI wolves be dancing? Please say the wolves will dance.)
Will your tween be seeing this movie?
