Team Jacob will be pleased with the 14 seconds of [movie id=”414921″]”New Moon”[/movie] footage that Summit Entertainment revealed Tuesday morning (August 11). Though the second film in the “Twilight Saga” won’t be released until November 20, the new scenes are from a teaser trailer that will run in front of “Bandslam” this Friday.
While the , which premiered at the MTV Movie Awards in May, focused on Bella fitting in with Edward’s vampire family, this new one — or at least the tiny portion of it we’ve seen — is all about Jacob.
Apparent in the first shot (and the footage we’ve already seen) is that director Chris Weitz has brought a much more polished aesthetic to Forks, Washington. The veteran director, who took over the series from indie queen Catherine Hardwicke, has retired the handheld cameras and perpetual blue filter of the first installment in favor of steady, sweeping shots.
The teaser opens with a shot of Bella in a clearing, presumably reflecting on the scene we’re about to see — a quick glimpse of Edward leaving her in the woods. The vampire is wearing a particularly sharp-looking blazer as he takes off, which surely makes his departure that much harder on Bella. (Hate to see you go, buddy, but we love to watch you leave.)
Meanwhile, Jacob says, “I know what he did to you. And Bella, I won’t ever hurt you. I promise,” as the trailer transitions to the scene where he dares to mention Edward’s sudden exit. We’re then brought outside to a final scene where we’re treated to a spectacular view of Jacob’s magnificent six-pack and Bella in a comfy-looking green flannel shirt. She could be about to take it off and attempt to do her laundry on those washboard abs. Or not. But she does tell Jacob, “You’re sort of beautiful,” as he brushes a lock of hair behind her ear and gazes at her longingly.
From these few shots — and the way Jacob’s face falters at the end — it’s easy to see how she could fall for the protective werewolf in the absence of her sparkly knight in shining armor. Hopefully, we’ll see the rest of the wolf pack in the pre-“Bandslam” teaser trailer, but there’s still one problem: We haven’t seen the Volturi yet. What are you waiting for, guys?!
