The Twilight Saga reaches its (maybe) conclusion when Breaking Dawn – Part 2 arrives in theaters this fall. Now that Lionsgate and Summit are bedfellows, the latter will be using the premiere of the former’s fellow young adult literature blockbuster adaptation (The Hunger Games) later this week to unveil an official teaser trailer for the next chapter in the story of Bella Swan and her vampiric lover Edward Cullen.
Much like it did for the Breaking Dawn – Part 1 theatrical promos – and 20th Century Fox has (over)done with its Prometheus marketing – Summit has released a short preview clip for said trailer, teasing the dramatic events that take place in the second half of Breaking Dawn.
Those of you who are reading this article presumably either saw Breaking Dawn – Part 1 or don’t care about being spoiled for that film, so we’re not exactly giving anything away by mentioning that Part 2 will chronicle what happens after Bella (Kristen Stewart) has been transformed into a vampire by her dear Edward (Robert Pattinson). As it were, a “new and improved” Bella is exactly what this trailer preview hints at.
You can watch the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 trailer preview (fair warning: it’s short) below:
A lot of Twilight fans are excited to see vampire Bella brought to life on the big screen, so Breaking Dawn – Part 2 definitely has that working in its favor. However, the film also faces a dilemma similar to that which inflicted its immediate predecessor: there isn’t a whole lot of narrative ground for it to cover. As it were, the first half of Breaking Dawn arguably suffered from having to stretch too little story material to fit a two-hour running time (among other things – read our review for more on that).
It remains to be seen whether or not Breaking Dawn – Part 2 can manage to satisfy diehard Twilight fans and serve as a fitting conclusion to the film series, largely for that reason. As far as everyone else in concerned, though, the simple fact that this could be the final Twilight movie is reason enough for celebration.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 arrives in theaters around the U.S. on November 16th, 2012. Be sure to check back in the near future, for when the official teaser trailer drops.
