LA Times has broken down the seven things that we’ve learned from the brand new Breaking Dawn Part 2 trailer:
Bella “was born to be a vampire.” Stewart quite literally vamps it up in the new teaser, getting gussied up in that gorgeous-vampire sort of makeup of the “Saga” and that bloodthirsty-red contact lens treatment. And yes, she kind of dazzles us too.
Lautner’s Jacob Black is eating his words about Bella’s transformation. “I didn’t expect you to seem so — you?” Those hoping that Bella would shed the T-shirt, thermals and tousled hairdo will have to keep hoping.
Edward and Bella are the same temperature! That’s right, Bella doesn’t have to be coddled with a blanket anymore when she curls up next to Edward’s marble-like body. We learned that in the previous trailer, but it doesn’t seem to get old.
Renesmee! Edward’s and Bella’s half-human, half-vampire bundle of supernatural joy, played by Mackenzie Foy, “was born not bitten,” as Bella reminds us. Which leads us to …
The Volturi are back again. The ancient vampire council dwelling in Italy are royally pissed about Renesmee’s existence, and they’re just about ready to scoop up the immortal hybrid love child so she doesn’t out their secret.
There’s going to be a showdown. At least it looks that way, with Bella running all “Snow White and the Huntsman”-like in the final scene of the trailer. In an effort to stop the Volturi, Edward rounds up as many international vampires as he can to tell them the truth about his baby and take down the Volturi. No thanks to Maggie Grace’s Irina.
This story isn’t as much about Edward and Bella anymore. It’s more about the scope of the supernatural world embedded in the human world. That’s right, this ain’t no Catherine Hardwicke emo love story. It’s about finding your place with the ones you love and being allowed that happiness. But don’t worry, there are still enough Edward-Jacob swoon-worthy moments to look forward to.
“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2″ opens in theaters Nov. 16. Think you can wait?
Breaking Dawn Part 2 is out in 171 days, so there’s not a ton of news yet, but to get us all excited I’ve posted some new fan-made Twilight videos below.

Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson recently sat down with “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence, who cleared up reports of a spat between herself and Kristen Stewart. “I wrote her an e-mail, because there was this huge like, article about a ‘Twilight’ and ‘Hunger Games’ feud, and we’ve never met before and never spoken,” Jennifer explained. “There were all these like, fake quotes from me that were actually hilarious. Some of them were from my ‘pal’ and ‘sources.’ It was hilarious. When I was reading it, I was cracking up. “Then I was like, ‘Oh my god. If she reads this, she’s going to think – what if she thinks it’s true?’” she continued. “I just shot her an e-mail, and was like, ‘Hey, can’t wait to see more as this feud unfolds!’” The “Twilight” star took the time to respond to Jennifer, putting her mind at ease. “She wrote me back, and she was like, ‘It’s fine. Welcome to the world where everything you say gets turned into [something it’s not],” the 21-year-old recounted. “So, she understood.”
Movies.ie posted this interview they did with Robert Pattinson where he talks about the Breaking Dawn movie, the end of doing Twilight films and what’s next for him!
How did you find your last day on set, sad, happy?
Robert Pattinson: The last day in Canada was semi-miserable: we did two weeks of night shoots and it was freezing cold and it was horrible. But the actual last day in St. Thomas, in the Caribbean, was pretty amazing. The one time we had to shoot in nice weather, it was literally the last day of the shoot, and we were shooting on the beach and were just making out in the sea all night. That was the last day, so I was like, “That was not too bad!” It was a nice little send-off.
Was it a big party? What was the feeling on set?
Robert Pattinson: It was nice. The very last day was really nice. In Canada, on that last day, there was 120 people on that last scene, so it was stress right up until the last second, but in the Caribbean, it was just me and Kristen, we had done everything, we hardly had anything to shoot, it was just a couple of extra bits, and so it was really nice and everybody just stayed and watched the sun rise. It was really beautiful. It was a nice end to it.
Are you sad that it’s all over now?
Robert Pattinson: I don’t know yet. I feel like I have been in a whirlwind for so long that I don’t really know. I feel like I have been doing it for years constantly, even though I have done other movies in between, because whenever you do and promote or talk about another movie, you’re always talking about <Twilight>, so it is kind of constant. But I don’t know. Maybe in a year or so. I know when the last one has come out, it will be, but I know right now I have another year of basically doing Twilight stuff.
Do you look forward to the hype all being over and you can get back to doing other things?
Robert Pattinson: Yeah, but it’s always a good thing to have a bit of hype, especially nowadays. But I don’t know. I will be interested to see how people perceive me in a couple of years, because it seems as though people have been talking about the same stuff about me for about three years now, so I am wondering how long that will go on for. But I don’t really know how to predict anything.
How did you prepare for Edward and Bella becoming parents in this film? Did you draw on anything from your own childhood?
Robert Pattinson: Not really. No-one really knows how to be a father when you first begin – there’s no way to prepare for it. And it’s very easy to react to holding a baby, especially when the baby is looking like a newborn and you have just delivered it – it’s very simple, as it’s just crying in your hands, so you end up being very careful with it and stuff. But it is strange when Mackenzie (Foy) starts playing Renesmee, as you suddenly have to think, “My daughter is now 11. It’s two months after she is born and she can speak.” So that was a complicated thing to play. But it’s a fantasy movie, so I guess you just go along with it. It is the ultimate fantasy, I guess, to some people, that you can avoid all the annoying parts of having a kid, if they’re already fending for themselves. It’s like having a puppy. Just leave it alone and thank you very much.
Smile Twilighters! There’s a chance The Twilight Saga could continue after the fifth film opens in November.
The bombshell was reportedly dropped by Jon Feltheimer, the chief executive officer of Lionsgate Entertainment, which acquired Twilight studio Summit Entertainment for $412.5 million on Friday.
“I’m anticipating Breaking Dawn – Part 2 being $700 million-plus in worldwide box office,” said Feltheimer of the final (planned) installment in the hit vampire franchise.
According to the Los Angeles Times, when asked whether Lionsgate could envision more Twilight past next fall’s fifth film, Feltheimer left the door open.
“It’s hard for me to imagine a movie that does $700 million-plus doesn’t have ongoing value,” he said. “It’s an amazing franchise that they have done a great job of maintaining with absolutely no deterioration.”
He added, “So the simple answer is, ‘Boy, I hope so.’”
It’s not clear whether a potential continuation would involve future films or a television series.
