twilight breaking dawn trailer 2 Full Breaking Dawn   Part 1 Trailer Finally Arrives

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 will easily be one of the top-grossing films of the 2011 Fall Movie season… and yet, it’s arguably also part of the most polarizing blockbuster franchise ever. Seriously, not even director Michael Bay’s Transformers trilogy seems to readily inspire unadulterated love/hate reactions like author Stephenie Meyer’s supernatural romance novel-turned-movie series does.

Hence why it seems almost pointless to critique the newly-released second official trailer for Breaking Dawn – Part 1. If your skin crawls – or, by contrast, your heart swoons – whenever you hear a term like “Team Edward,” there’s pretty much nothing this trailer will do to change your mind.

Whereas the penultimate entry in the Harry Potter movie franchise served primarily as buildup for the more thrilling finale, a lot of the major plot twists and developments in Meyer’s source material look to make the cut in Breaking Dawn- Part 1. Several important events will still take place in the second half of Breaking Dawn, but the most intriguing (or, rather, disturbing) turns in the story look to be covered before then.

For those who are Twilight movie fans only, here is the gist of what goes down in Breaking Dawn – Part 1: Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) are at last married and set off to enjoy their honeymoon in the tropical paradise that is Rio de Janeiro. There, the two… well, “get busy,” and Bella ends up pregnant.

However, her vampire/human hybrid child not only forces Edward to take drastic action – in order to save his mortal wife – it also reveals the creepy unexpected truth behind Jacob’s (Taylor Lautner) undying loyalty and love for Bella.

With that in mind – check out the second official trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 (via Yahoo! Movies) below:


Say what you will about the story and characters of Breaking Dawn – Part 1 (we certainly have…), it arguably looks to be the most technically-proficient entry in the Twilight¬†franchise. Oscar-winning director Bill Condon’s decorated creative team – which includes director of photography Guillermo Navarro (Pan’s Labyrinth) and production designer Richard Sherman (Gods and Monsters) – look to have done justice by Meyer’s original novel. Twihards will certainly appreciate the stunning imagery of Bella and Edward intimately clutching one another beneath the cover of tropical moonlight – or Jacob, soaring through darkened woods as he races to protect Bella from an encroaching pack of werewolves.

As for everyone else… well, composer Carter Burwell‘s musical accompaniment for Breaking Dawn – Part 1 should be easy on the ears.

Some non-Twilight converts might actually turn out for Breaking Dawn – Part 1 simply because they want to see this franchise dive into some genuine supernatural (and unnerving) horror territory. By and large, though, if the narrative structure and soapy romantic atmosphere of the previous Twilight films wasn’t your cup of tea, there’s not a whole lot of reason to assume you’re going to enjoy this new installment all that much more.

Twihards, on the other hand – Breaking Dawn – Part 1¬†doesn’t look to disappoint.


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

        • We don’t have to like twilight to be on this site, thank you very much.

          Now, I find the first movie to be decent but after that I think everything just went down hill but that’s just my opinion.

          • true but to those of us who love it that was kinda rude and rude to the actors who work so hard and did a great job

            • According to you what was “rude”?

              • calling the movie lame is rude

  11. This will be better than Green Lantern.

  12. looks ok, but i’m not going to lie i’d pay to watch robert pattinson read the phonebook.

  13. looks like a step up from the last two, nothing more. i dont feel like getting backlash for my OWN thoughts.

    • Whether they know it or not, the Twilight movies make for some great unintentional comedy,

  14. What just happened in this comment section…. this seems like a whole new group of commentors that just tried to take over the site, told everyone that doesnt like the show to shove off, and even got away with giving Vic some rudness…TwiHard fans are a different breed…

  15. I want Blade to return….

    • ^What he said^…..x10. :-D

    • u r such a lier

  16. See the importance of birth control now kids?

    The werewolves look like giant pomeranians.

  17. hopefully sam and dean winchester burst in at some point in these movies and just off everybody, now THAT would be a good movie.

  18. Why is every image of this movie always these two holding and looking at each other as if they just met?

  19. I still can’t understand why she needed to get pregnant…

    Guess the author ran out of ideas…got no other explanation for this…and moreover of the terrible name of Bellas Child oO

    anyone sharing my opinion??? The last book sucks…it was such a big dissapointment :(

    • I liked it. I wish she had done more with all the interesting characters she introduced, however.

      • i love twilight but i do agree with you

    • i agree with you, not about the baby, that’s ok, but the book was a dissapointment… :(

    • u r so wrong the name is unique it was a great touch that bella was pregnant

  20. “Harry Potter is about the importance of standing up to do what is right in the face of adversity. Twilight is about the importance of having a boyfriend” Stephen King

    Scene 2: Angry Jacob, rip off shirt, run.

  21. It’s final, I’m not gonna watch it. The wolves look cool though.
