Oh, Jeebus! Even though we thought that the 10 second clip of the Breaking Dawn, Part 2 trailer yesterday was the shiznit, the preview doesn’t hold a candle to the full video. What we mainly saw yesterday was a family scene involving Rosalie, Edward and Bella with Renesmee. We also saw Robert Pattinson, as Edward voices his concerns about the brewing conflict, saying, “The Volturi think that Renesmee’s an immortal child.” Kristen Stewart as the awesome vampire Bella gets worked up, answering, “She was born not bitten! She grows every single day.” We see Alice dropping a glass vase as she has a vision of the Volturi coming for them, gliding over snow, till Aro flips back his dark hood, and we realize it’s ON.
The full extended trailer has these bits, but SO much more. It opens with the voice-over we’ve heard before, in the first Breaking Dawn, Part 2 trailer, where Bella says, “After 18 years of being utterly ordinary, I finally found that I could shine.” There are also shots we’ve seen before of the ring, Edward saying, “So beautiful … We’re the same temperature now”, and Taylor Lautner as Jacob saying, “I didn’t expect you to seem so … you.” But earlier, where we saw Bella running through the woods, she’s now leaping spectacularly saying, “I was born to be a vampire.” She’s looking gorgeous and confident, walking towards Jacob as he calls her normal.
More important, we see the machinations of the plot coming together with Maggie Grace as Irina, going up to Aro and snitching, “I have to report a crime. The Cullens, they’ve done something terrible,” with a deadly-looking Aro responding, “Oh, my.” Edward starts putting the plan together, thinking, “If enough people knew the truth maybe we could convince the Volturi would listen.” He goes to the covens saying, “My family is in danger, I need your help,” and they respond, pledging allegiance to the Cullens. There are lots of cool shots interspersed between all the dialogue and it all ends with panoramic pre-battle scenes and a truly spectacular water scene that we can’t spoil for you. It’s beyond epic. This movie needs to come out now. We can’t take it any longer!
