‘Breaking Dawn 2′ trailer shows Bella as protector: exciting or dumb?

Breaking Dawn 2

Here are some new images from the issue of Entertainment Weekly that we previewed last week. These photos, of course, are geared to give the first real glimpse of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan’s new progeny, Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy). Many of you commented last week on what a ridiculous name (it’s an amalgamation of Bella and Edward mothers, Renee and Esme) has been bestowed upon this half-vampire child, and I agree. But it’s not outside the realm of ridiculousness that has already been spawned by Stephenie Meyer’s vegetarian vampire universe, so it makes sense at least in that regard.

Now the new trailer has debuted for Breaking Dawn: Part II, and it’s not nearly as funny as that teaser from a few months ago in which Bella stalked Bambi. Still, it’s worth watching just to marvel at the fact that nothing really happens in this sequel (as far as the book is concerned), yet the movie will still make hundreds of millions of dollars. Here’s that trailer:

So the Cullens will now officially “go to war” with the Voltari, but those of us who have (unfortunately) read the book know that the actual “battle” that takes place is a real buzzkill. But they make them run in this trailer! That’s exciting, I guess. Not really. Yet I find it amusing when Jacob greets vampire Bella, who looks exactly the same as human Bella with red eyes. Of course, she’s still Bella. Because she’s played by Kristen Stewart, who doesn’t have a very large range as an actress even though she’s the highest paid in Hollywood. This movie will be insufferable, and it won’t even have the campy, headboard-crushing humor of the first installment. What a shame.

Oh, and here’s the amusing moment when Emmett, played by Kellan Lutz, attempts to arm wrestle with Bella and fails miserably. My own (nonexistent) money is on Lutz being the fastest member of the Cullen clan to disappear into obscurity once this franchise finally ends. Bye bye, Lutzy.

    At least we will always have Harry Potter and Hunger Games… and even Dragon Tattoo if desperation seeks in.

  2. Ailine says:

    There’s no real tension here. It’s like they have to shift the story from one about love to an action movie. An awkward shift given there are no explosions, gadgets, etc.

  3. marie says:

    aww really, I was banking it being his wife-whatsherface, seriously I can’t remember her name..

    And woohoo, the craptastic end is in sight..

  4. LittleDeadGirl says:

    It’s a better trailer than the other one they released. I can’t say I’m excited for it but I don’t think it looks terrible and I liked the last movie better than the others. Their acting, for me anyway, is more bearable every movie so maybe this one will be better? Who knows.

  5. Stephanie says:

    The two blondes look like The Real Housewives of Twilight

  6. laylajanelovesgossip says:

    I will be going to see it(hangs my head in shame).

  7. Nanz says:

    “Lots of red eyes around here” made me LOL literally. I can’t decide if Lautner is the weakest link in this trailer or if it’s Greene. I watched the first 2 movies out of curiosity, but won’t be seeing the rest of them. I just don’t get the appeal. The gossip about the movies interests me more than the movies themselves. Twilight fans are…passionate.

  8. Hannah says:

    Woohoo teens raising kids (eye roll). And lmao at “now we’re the same temperature.” how moving.

  9. poppy says:

    It’s too easy (and tired) to troll this franchise.

  10. Jenna says:

    I’m excited……for the movies to finally be over.

  11. eb says:

    I just realized something. Maybe, KS isn’t a terrible actress. Many people here have vouched for her skill in Adventureland and OTR. I personally couldn’t see her again after seeing her in 1st twilight.

    Maybe she can’t act what she doesn’t understand.

    After hearing her voiceover I was struck again how she plays this character all wrong from the start.

    I get the feeling she plays Bella like how she herself was a teenager. There is very little vulnerability, humor, or self-reproach. Also, the drama in her voice doesn’t ring true. She doesn’t even seem worried or scared. More automaton.

    Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe she only plays what she has seen. Not herself? Who knows.

  12. Anname says:

    Come on, enjoy the cheese! The goofy actors like Lautner and Ashley Greene just add to the fun of the whole thing. I have had a lot of fun following this series, and Rob and Kristen. So I think watching the last one – the most insane story line yet – will just finish it off perfectly!

  13. another nina says:

    Her range is incredible- sometimes she bites her lip, and then other times she doesn’t bite her lip.

  14. Ming says:

    If Britain would have ever fallen victim to a zombie apocalypse and one of those undead had chewed J.K.Rowlings brains out, she would have written Twilight.

    That Stepenie Meyer achieved this goal in the state of being well and alive…THIS IS GREAT CINEMA PEOPLE !!!!!1111

  15. Jover says:

    i realize that vampires are supposed to live forever, but why does this series/prequel/sequel, etc. have to do the same. Can’t we put a stake through it once and for all.

  16. ClaireB says:

    There’s absolutly nothing exciting about those movies apart from the vague, blissful promess that when it will finally be over, we’ll hear very little of these three again. (Stewart Patton and Meyer)
    They have had way too many passes because of this awful saga that astonishingly made millions telling girls and bored women they worth nothing until a man, -nevermind he’s the biggest abusing creep you’ll ever meet- and a baby come along. It’s despicable.

  17. kay says:

    Dumb.

    really bad, but damn, I can’t wait to see it. I can’t explain it! love the movies.

  18. mia girl says:

    I’m thinking Lee Pace is looking pretty hot as vampire. Didn’t expect that.

  19. CTgirl says:

    Wow. So very bad. And RP really doesn’t ever need to show his hands if he wants to be mistaken for a male. Ever. Unless he’s playing Elizabeth Bennet and has that claw wrapped around a cucumber sandwich.

  20. Olive says:

    “After 18 years of being utterly ordinary…”
    Oh, I dunno Bella if you ask me, I’d say the past few years haven’t been ordinary…who writes this crap? We should all thank mrs. Meyer for setting back women’s lib another 20 years

  21. aquarius64 says:

    The battle sequence in this trailer is a re-hash of the one in Eclipse, except it takes place during winter. They are playing down the Jacob/Reneesme connection in the trailer (and probably in future ones) because of the online negative comments.

  22. endlesscircles says:

    I don’t care about “Twilight.” I care about the upcoming “On the Road.” I am pretty much bitter that she was cast in that…TOTAL BS.

  23. Crystal says:

    Lee Pace is too good for this shit. Seriously.

  24. Katija says:

    I love, love, love the Volturi. Because they are utterly ridiculous. Because they are over-acting like a beeyotch, but it’s great.. I seriously need to hand it to Michael Sheen. Everyone else is taking this schlock (and I love it, but it’s absolutely schlock) super seriously, and he seems like the only one who’s like… “OK, this is stupid. So you know what? I’m gonna have fun with it.”

  25. sup says:

    why is this even a question? the ending of the clip was particularly dumb

  26. Janet says:

    So what happens, they run toward each other, and then skid to a dead stop and start yacking? Well, I guess it beats the book where they just stood around before they started yacking.

  27. NM6804 says:

    Just IMDB’d Lutzy, it seems like he has a lot of work :( but I also think that the Twilight success will wear out soon and that he’ll be out of work. After all, we already have a “sexy” Neanderthal actor: Channing Tatum.

  28. ORLY says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
    That’s all.

  29. Jovia says:

    Say it ain’t so about Lutzy because I’m going to miss the Kellan Lutz in the third person of Kellan Lutz posts. :(

  30. Janet says:

    That child is too damn old.

  31. Genevieve says:

    Sadly, I can’t wait until it comes out. . Sorry :(

  32. lil says:

    Kellan Lutz’s arm is stupidly out of proportion to his head. That photo gets funnier the more you look at it!

  33. ORLY says:

    There is something weird about Kristen’s missing right arm and that right hand resting on the kid’s tummy.

    It’s too big to be the kid’s and it isn’t attached to Kstew. WTF?!

    I didn’t bother reading most of the comments here , but i was just wondering how much longer can people write nasty things about a person they don’t know … How much longer can it go on …. really it’s been 4 years now since Twilight if she didn’t play Bella and instead continued to make regular movies no one would have a negative thing to say about her , and all those bloggers wouldn’t be so popular …. so it seems a little bit hypocritical of a lot of the bloggers to belittle her personally and professionally considering she is actually the main reason people are visiting these blogs in the first place you should really thank her and Pattinson . Some of you people are actually quite funny … i’m sure she can’t wait for this thing to be over too then hopefully she can continue to work in normal movie not involving angry teens and nasty bloggers that only wants hits and traffic on their sites
