The publicists that be kept Kristen Stewart off the stage at MTV’s VMA ceremony tonight when some of the Twilight cast assembled to present a new 90-second trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. So the most awkward part of the Twilight portion of the evening was just the effects in the trailer, and that’s not such a big deal. In fact, the film’s dodgy effects are almost charming at this point, as they’ve been so thoroughly embraced by the films over the past few years.

The difference here is that, with the core romantic drama resolved in the last film as Bella and Edward (Stewart and Robert Pattinson) finally married and had their weird super-baby Renesmee, this movie is about resolving the drama between vampire clans. And that means battle, and more effects sequences than in previous chapters.

Indeed, this short trailer makes the movie look like the final buildup to one big fight scene. It also reveals a bit more of Mackenzie Foy as Renesmee, as vampire rule-keepers the Volturi prepare to attack. Read More »

She also jumps waterfalls in a single bound, climbs mountains and hugs Robert Pattinson really hard. At the first Hall H panel of San Diego Comic Con 2012, director Bill Condon (via video) and the cast and crew of the November 16th film screen the first seven minutes of the movie, most of which centers on Bella’s first time acting like a vampire. “It felt so good to break her in,” Stewart said of this films’ newly vamped character character. “See how fast the car goes.”

Even though it only runs about 75 seconds long, the theatrical trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 packs in more intriguing images than the first four movies combined. Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) are finally married and now that they’ve also had a child, the lovers who could never be will become the parents who’ll fight for anything to save their child. And if that means recruiting an army of vampires and werewolves to fight the Volturi? Well, then that’s what they’ll do.

Directed by Bill Condon, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is the final film of the Twilight saga and opens November 16. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

Here’s the teaser trailer for the final film in the Twiilght series — or, at least, the final film until the merged Lionsgate/Summit company decides to reboot it altogether. Many of you may have already seen this in theaters, since it played in front of The Hunger Games, which just had the third-highest opening weekend of all time, behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and The Dark Knight.

The kicker shot in this teaser is pretty good: Bella (Kristen Stewart) in the woods, hunting as a new vampire, having been turned at the climax of the last film in order (ironically) to preserve her life. The thrust of this final film, which follows the marriage of Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella, and the rapid in utero development and violent birth of their child, is a confrontation with the vampire ruling class that has been seen here and there throughout the series. There’s no real hint of that here, however. This is all about Bella’s new non-human nature.
