Summit Entertainment (which recently merged with Lionsgate) premiered a teaser trailer for the second half of Breaking Dawn in front of The Hunger Games this past weekend, to take advantage of the millions of Twilight fans who also turned out for Katniss’ big screen debut – and start drumming up interest for Bella’s next cinematic outing.
Whereas the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 trailer preview merely teased Kristen Stewart as “the new Bella,” the full teaser trailer offers an actual look at the character – now that she has finally become a crimson-eyed, pale-skinned, blood-thirsty immortal, thanks to her vampiric husband Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). As with the trailers for any of the Twilight movies, your reaction to said footage will probably be either that of breathless anticipation – or eye-rolling aggravation. Consider yourself warned…
Check out the teaser trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 below:
Rest assured, no matter what side of the fence you fall on, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 will be a massive hit at the box office. Much like the final Harry Potter movie, the Twilight Saga finale will undoubtedly bring out the series’ fans in full force; whether or not they will ultimately walk away satisfied by how director Bill Condon and series screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg translate the (anti?) climax of Stephenie Meyer’s source material on the big screen, that’s a different matter. Either way, Lionsgate is already making tentative plans for additional Twilight films in the future.
