The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is coming to a theater near you very very soon. November 16, in fact. If, in the unlikely event you don't care or already know that, the next 14 days will be testing ones.
Even before next week’s talk show blitz with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, the feast of clips and TV spots already released make Prometheus’ publicity campaign look almost modest by comparison.
In addition to the recent roll-out of footage designed to hype up the nostalgia factor, Tuesday's MTV premiere of Green Day's video for "The Forgotten" piled on the bittersweet with these chorus lyrics:
“Don’t look away from the arms of the moment Don’t look away from the arms of tomorrow Don’t look away from the arms of the moment Don’t look away from the arms of love.”
MTV's much anticipated sit down with Pattinson, Stewart, and Lautner will air later and a three day press junket in Los Angeles kicked off earlier today.
Now that numerous journalists will have seen the last installment ahead of the junket, it will be interesting to see if they agree with recent comments by the lead actors about the bizarre nature of director Bill Condon's finale.
In an interview with Melody Times (France), Pattinson said:
"This film is nothing like the other previous four. Vampires are really superbizarre dudes.”
"Let me tell you, this movie is very [different]. And that’s a compliment. Breaking Dawn -- Part 2 is really bizarre.”
