Rumors about possible sequels aside, one thing that is happening for sure in The Twilight Saga universe is Breaking Dawn – Part 2.
Although BD – Part 2 doesn’t hit theaters until November 16, Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate are clearly cranking up the promo.
Yesterday, Summit announced a teaser trailer would be released on Wednesday June 20 to mark the 111th birthday of Edward Cullen – and today a sneak peek of that teaser was unveiled.
In addition to first look pictures of Mackenzie Foy – aka Renesmee Cullen – and an exclusive roll out of stills in Monday’s Entertainment Weekly, this 10 second clip is an opportunity for (interested-but-not-fans) viewers to get an idea of what’s in store.
Apart from the harrowing birth scene that introduced audiences to Renesmee – the half-vamp/half-human daughter of Bella and Edward (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson) – one of the most dramatic scenes in Part 1 was the final shot of Bella opening blood-red eyes the moment her heart stopped beating.
In Part 2, the new parents’ joy is cut short by the news that the Volturi (a sort of vampire Royal Family) are hell-bent on destroying their daughter, due to a false accusation that Renesmee is a created vampire (i.e bitten.)
Apparently with the Volturi, inflicting pain on humanity for millennia is okay but “making” an Immortal Child is a total no-no.
So what else happens?
Among other things: vampire covens from all over the world fly into Forks to help the Cullen clan defend their newest member. Meanwhile the Volturi go Black-Ops on everyone in sight.
Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) – as Renesmee’s protector – will no doubt also have something to say about the situation. And if you’ll notice in the clip; faster, stronger, better, vamp Bella looks ready for action. Like ready.
In short, things are going to get hectic.
Watch the 10 second clip here, the full length teaser drops tomorrow. Interesting details discussed here.
