The Second “Eclipse” Trailer – Did it “wow” you?
By Tracy Rosenfield
If you are a true “Twilight” fan, or happened to be online at ANY point yesterday, you know by now that the second and possibly final “Eclipse” trailer premiered on Oprah with an introduction by Dakota Fanning.
First things first. This trailer is far better than the first “Eclipse” trailer, which focused on the love triangle between Bella, Edward and Jacob. It was reminiscent of “New Moon”. This new trailer focuses on the action-packed aspect of “Eclipse”, as noted in my last post.
There is A LOT going on in this trailer.
– Riley is attacked by Victoria
– The main plot is revealed – an army of newborns being bred in Seattle
– The Wolf Pack and The Cullens coming together to fight the army
– The newborns descend upon Forks
– Edward’s proposal to Bella
– The battle scene
– The EPIC fight between Edward and Victoria
If you haven’t read the book, you might not be clear about the plot just from the trailer. But, the trailer does an excellent job for fans of the book.
There are a few changes from the “Eclipse” novel, including the newborns coming out of water (a very Slade-esque move) and Bella’s ring vs. the written description, “Nestled into the black satin, Elizabeth Masen’s ring sparkled in the dim light. The face was a long oval, set with slanting rows of glittering round stones. The band was gold — delicate and narrow. The gold made a fragile web around the diamonds.” Though the ring may be shown at a different point, there were definitely no “glittering stones”. The diamonds were matte. Finally, there is a distinct difference in the wolves, which look more realistic in “Eclipse” than “New Moon”.
And I can’t leave out the fact that Jasper is given face time in the trailer, and people in the cyberworld have been clamoring for it!
Overall, this movie should entice existing fans of the Saga, and perhaps even expand the fan base further into the male population.
Slade, we’re looking forward to the movie and we’re counting down the days!
