We’re about a month away now from the launch of the second-to-last installment in The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn – Part 1. Summit is already pressing ahead with its marketing campaign to get Twihards riled up about the event – hence the release of new TV spots and (today) a featurette for the film (we apologize for the autoplay of the video – we couldn’t figure out how to disable it).

Breaking Dawn broaches some mature subject matter (marriage, sex, pregnancy) that were either not or less of an issue in the previous films – and the three main franchise players are offering assurances that their respective characters will actually evolve, as a result of their new experiences.

Today’s Twilight featurette includes interviews with Kristen Stewart discussing Bella’s concerns and trepidation about actually getting married; Robert Pattinson, touching on Edward’s frustrations when Bella decides to attempt and give birth to her human/vampire hybrid offspring; and Taylor Lautner, discussing how Jacob has to stop being simply a jealous teenager and become a responsible adult man. It’s all somewhat surprisingly interesting – assuming you actually care at all about these movies.

Watch that behind-the-scenes video for Breaking Dawn – Part 1 below:

It pretty much goes without saying that most people who count themselves as anti-Twilight types aren’t going to suddenly change sides – simply because the first half of Breaking Dawn sounds like it could be the most sophisticated and adult installment yet. This is still a Twilight movie and previously-released footage has pretty much guaranteed that it’ll be just as soapy a tale – one that panders exclusively to the tween crowd – as the previous chapters have done.

That’s not to mention: if you found Bella, Edward, and Jacob to be two-dimensional (or just irritating) before, it doesn’t look as though they’ll be that much different in Breaking Dawn: Part 1 – despite the life-changing actions they undertake therein.

Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon does have two movies to loyally recreate the original novel in what appears to be a well-shot manner, so at least die-hard fans and Twilight literature purists should be pleased… and let’s be honest, that’s probably all that Condon and his production team should care about anyway.


The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 arrives in U.S. theaters on November 18th, 2011.
