More “Eclipse” TV spots focus on epic battle at the center of the film

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: More 30-second “Eclipse” spots surfaced this week, these two focusing on newborn warrior Riley and the vampire army. They’ve been dubbed by fans with the monikers “Missing” and “Something New”, likely driven by the sensationalistic commentary of the deep-voiced commentator.

“Riley Biers disappeared without a trace,” the voice-over announces. “On June 30th, he’ll return.” In this first clip, “Missing”, the audience is shown a missing persons poster featuring the human Riley Biers before featuring more shots we’ve seen before (e.g., newborn bad vamp Riley eerily leading a V-formation of bloodthirsty comrades from the convenient camouflage of a mountain lake).

The second clip is less-focused, showing fast-paced battle scene footage and discussing the threat posed by the newborn army as a whole. “No human army can stand against them,” says Jasper in the southern lilt we’ve had little opportunity to hear thus far. In the background, the announcer reads a foreboding message: “They’re stronger…they’re deadlier…on June 30th, there’s something new to fear.”

Though only a few seconds of footage in each clip is truly new, fans have been happy to receive them. Fandango and MSN Movies first featured the new spots. They can still be viewed on either site or easily found on YouTube.
