The full new trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part 2 has finally come online-- on the occasion, of course, of Edward Cullens' 111th birthday. Take a look at the new trailer below.
Unlike the first half of the Breaking Dawn films, which was all about the lovey-dovey stuff of Edward and Bella's wedding, honeymoon, and birth of their child Renesmee, the second half seems to be all about the action, with the powerful Volturi vampires taking on Edward and Bella because they believe Renesmee poses some kind of threat. I have no idea exactly why they think this-- the mythology of the Twilight universe can be surprisingly impenetrable sometimes-- but when you've got a pallid Michael Sheen on your case, it's probably best to strike back. With the Volturi breathing down their neck, Edward and Bella team up with other vamipre tribes and even Jacob, who still seems uncomfortable (and woodenly acted as ever by Taylor Lautner) but at least gets a good dig in there about the red eyes.
Maybe the most interesting, and refreshing, thing in the whole trailer is those last few shots, showing the vampire tribes going head to head…. and Bella right there in the thick of it. We had three movies that were nothing but vampire action happening while she stood by the side-- remember in Eclipse when she was literally carried up a mountain to be out of harm's way?-- and now that she's a vampire, she can actually stick up for herself. It's a little late, sure, but we've got one more Twilight movie to go, and it's a relief to think it might be a little less dull this time around. Breaking Dawn: Part 2 comes to theaters Novermber 16.
