If you thought the hype surrounding the royal wedding was bad, prepare yourselves for Bella and Edward's nuptials in the upcoming “Breaking Dawn – Part I.”
The trailer for the film made its debut at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, squeezing in plenty of plot points into nearly two minutes. Fans get to see the wedding invite; a shirtless (of course) Jacob running through rain; the wedding scene; headboard-breaking sex; and Kristen Stewart’s “uh-oh” face when she realizes she’s pregnant with a half-vamp baby.
Reaction to the trailer has ranged from ecstatic – and weepy, apparently – to eye-rolling. The clip has Film School Rejects guessing the movie will be more "brooding staring contests…This time with flower arrangements,” and has left a few commenters questioning how well this whole “split the last book into two” experiment will work out. We’ll find out when “Breaking Dawn: Part I” arrives in theaters November 18.
“Twilight” wasn’t the only major film franchise to reveal a movie preview last night. "Harry Potter" fans also got a look at what's to come with a clip presented by "Potter" star Emma Watson at MTV's awards ceremony.
The sneak peek from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” shows Daniel Radcliffe’s titular character facing off against the creeptastic Lord Voldemort. Critiques one fan, "Breaking Dawn clip....they take themselves much too seriously. Harry Potter clip....full of win."
The final chapter of “Harry Potter’s” saga arrives in theaters on July 15.
