It’s war in the first full-length Breaking Dawn — Part 2 trailer. In honor of Edward Cullen’s 111th birthday — today — Summit released an extra minute (and then some) of never-before-seen footage paired up with yesterday’s clips to create the illusion of the ultimate vampiric showdown.
The video begins by introducing new vampire Bella. She says, “After 18 years of being utterly ordinary, I finally found I could shine. I was born to be a vampire.”
It then leads to a bittersweet moment between her and her blood-craving husband, Edward, as he notices that they’re the same temperature. And after a few more brief seconds of bliss between Bella and her friends and family, news travels to Italy, where the Volturi reside, that a crime’s been committed by the Cullen clan.
“The Volturi think Renesmee is an immortal child,” says a sullen Edward. Bella retaliates, exclaiming how their daughter was ‘born not bitten’ and ‘grows every single day’ — though, even she knows that’s not enough to stop the large coven of vampires from coming after them.
Aro, the head of the Volturi, proclaims that maintaining the secret of the vampires has ‘never been more imperative’ and, whether or not you read the books, you know what that means: they’re going to kill Renesmee. Or, at least they’re going to try.
Alice, with her psychic abilities, sees the Volturi’s plan, so the Cullens have time to not only round up the wolves, but neighboring vampire clans as well who have their own vendettas against the powerful group.
Watch it all go down and what ensues in the trailer below!
