Someone did a bad thing, but we’re not very sad that they did it. Yesterday honeymoon photos from Breaking Dawn were leaked, but Sumit Entertainment got wind of it and the pics were immediately taken down. E!‘s Ted Casablancas got ahold of a statement released from the studio, Stephanie Myer, Bill Condon and Wyck Godfrey:
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.
Stephenie Meyer, Bill Condon, Wyck Godfrey and Summit Entertainment
I totally get that the peeps behind Breaking Dawn want to keep things under wraps until the official unveiling of married vampire sex and Bella’s new “look,” but we’re in the age of the internet. Nothing is sacred, especially when it comes to Twilight.
