'Breaking Dawn' Part 2 - Release not set for summer 2012

MTV is reporting that Summit executives are saying that they have still not agreed the 'Breaking Dawn' Part 2 will be released in Summer 2012.  Part one is set for release November 18th 2011. 

"Summit distribution chief Richie Fay told MTV News that no such decision has been made and that the studio is still exploring multiple release dates, not just ones in the summer.
"We've targeted a number of dates, and we have yet to determine when it will happen," Fay said. "We haven't even determined that it will be the summer. It's still the source of discussions."
Of course, studios always explore various release dates for pictures, especially established blockbusters, and the fact that Summit hasn't committed the second "Breaking Dawn" to the summer season shouldn't be mistaken for confusion or indecision within studio headquarters.
But the 2012 summer movie calendar is rapidly filling up, not necessarily with films that widely share an audience with "Breaking Dawn," but with established franchises or properties in their own right. That May will offer "The Avengers," "Madagascar 3" and "Men in Black 3," while June delivers a "Star Trek" sequel. The rebooted "Spider-Man" has already nabbed the July 4th slot (occupied this year by "Eclipse"), followed closely by another "Ice Age" and a third "Batman."
Surely there's room here for "Breaking Dawn," but Summit now has experience releasing "Twilight" movies both in the summer and the fall. And, as Fay says, the studio might not be ready to pick a season for "Breaking Dawn" until "Eclipse" finishes up its theatrical run."

I really liked the Twilight Soundtrack. When I heard it for the first time I knew that the Eclipse movie would be amazing. And I wasn't wrong. I loved it and it was, beyond a doubt, the best movie of the saga so far. I cannot wait for the first part of the fourth movie to come out. And if I'm not wrong that is in Novembeer of 2011. While I'm waiting I king of got hooked on this other movie called The Incubus. You should check it out. Now they are having a promotion, and you can download one of the songs from the soundtrack free! You should check it out, it's an amazing song. Here's the link:
