Well, the honeymoon’s out of the way, the baby’s been born, and now the marriage of Bella & Edward (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson), the lead characters of the “Twilight” franchise, is going the same way as many other marriages — into a series of fights. However, it’s not the newlyweds who are arguing; it’s the new Mr. & Mrs Cullen, along with Edward’s family, and Jacob’s pack of werewolves, against vampire authority the Volturi, who believe that their child Renesmee is an abomination, and needs to be destroyed. Which is all a long-winded way of saying that the first full teaser trailer for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part Two” has arrived (to coincide with Edward’s 111th birthday: you people do know he’s a fictional character, right?), and it looks like it has the biggest scope of the series so far.
Now a full-on vampire, Bella is leaping around the woods like a veritable John Carter, but Michael Sheen and his oddly-costumed cohorts are on their way, and the Cullens are forced to find allies from all around the vampire world (including, it would seem, The Last Airbender), and prepare for one almighty final battle, which seems to take place on a frozen lake. Because we’ve never seen that before on a film.
Anyway, all the things you’ve come to expect from the “Twilight” franchise seem to be present and correct — smoldering looks, flat line readings, terrible special effects — so it’s pretty much business as usual for the fifth installment, the second to be directed by “Dreamgirls” helmer Bill Condon. Look, you already know if you’re seeing this or not, but you can watch a minute or so of it below, courtesy of Digital Spy. “Breaking Dawn Pt. 2” hits theaters on November 16th.
