Included on the list were the newborns and the ring, and the new trailer for Eclipse has certainly satisfied those wants and more.
In fact, there were a whole bunch of new details, scenes, and words revealed in this trailer. Here are some of the most exciting ones:
- Eclipse werewolves
Ever since Ashley Greene (“Alice Cullen”) talked about doing ADR on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and stated that the Eclipse werewolves bested those of New Moon, curiosity became peaked as to how the werewolves would look in the film. Thanks to the new trailer, we don’t have to wonder about that any more, and we know that Greene was right. The new trailer shows a few separate snippets of the werewolves in action. In one particular instance, the werewolves are shown in combat with the newborn army. The effects are splendid-looking, and if there’s more where that came from, bring it on!
- Edward versus Jacob
The Edward versus Jacob dynamic in the Twilight series has always been of interest to me, as a Twilight fan, but with Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon that intensity of spirit was somewhat removed thanks to the physical separation of the two based on events. Eclipse, on the other hand, has always had that promise of bringing the conflict between the two front and center, and one of the scenes previewed by the new trailer gave us a glimpse of what that tension will be like. The sequence shown (in part) in the trailer is the one where Jacob confronts Edward and forces him to reveal the situation. One of the things I loved most about this moment in the trailer is how organically similar it was to the literary version of the scene. It was very acute and in tune with the feeling of the story. It really makes the conflict we have to look forward to in the film that much more exciting.
- Newborn Mayhem
One of the things that we got to see a small portion of in the Eclipse sneak peek was the newborn army in action. In this trailer for Eclipse, it becomes clear that Riley and his army of newborn vampires are a focal point of this film. It was really interesting to see how intensified his character is going to be for the film version, and it was actually really exciting to see how much of Riley there is in this picture. The actor portraying Riley, Xavier Samuel, is talented and gives weight and importance to the role. Also, the scenery and intensity offered by Victoria, Riley, and the newborns will be a welcome addition to the story of Eclipse.
- Cullen Central
If there was one thing most Twilight fans can agree upon about the series, it’s that there is no such thing as too much Cullen. We already knew how much more face time the Cullen coven would get in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, but from the trailer we can rest easy in knowing that some of the most important moments involving them from the book won’t be deserted for the film adaptation. Particularly, a scene where Carlisle and his family are strategizing about the Seattle situation was seen in the trailer, and this was an important moment from the book that seems to have been translated pretty faithfully onto film. Also, in the training and battle sequences included in the final trailer, one can tell that the Cullens’ fighting sequences (did you see Alice’s backflip?) are going to be e-p-i-c. Which leads me to my next point . . .
- Special Effects
Clearly, the special effects department for Eclipse was amply prepared for what they had to deliver. In the trailer alone, we got to see several stunts and special effects, including Victoria and a massive tree falling, the meeting and battle of the newborns and the Cullens, and the werewolves at work. While New Moon took a giant step above Twilight in the FX department, Eclipse seems to be taking a very literal leap. Unbelievably exciting.
- Exhilirating Score
Just this week, David Slade stated that there were “no words to describe” the score that Howard Shore composed in England, and if the sample offered by the trailer is any indication, he was very, very right. Not only was the score so plainly and vividly aligned with the activity of the film, but it was also a feature all its own. The shrill violin work used in the trailer music alone was enough to take the imagery to another level. So far, so good.
- The Ring
In the first trailer, we got to hear the words used by Edward in his proposal to Bella. In this one, we got to see the ring. From the looks of it, the ring was very faithfully inspired by Stephenie Meyer’s book description of it as well as popular interpretation of that look. No doubt, Meyer herself had a hand in selecting the perfect prop for this moment.
Overall, the trailer revealed the pitch perfect temperament and mood for this film, and it certainly left Twilight fans thirsty for more. Above all else, it leaves us confidence that the film really will juxtapose the sweetness of the love story with the might of the action end. What was your favorite part and why?
