[movieperson id="365131"]Robert Pattinson[/movieperson], [movieperson id="262629"]Kristen Stewart[/movieperson] and [movieperson id="373803"]Taylor Lautner[/movieperson] don't need to get all the attention, do they? With the "Twilight" trio set to appear together Thursday (May 13) on an episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," Summit Entertainment released a brand-new clip from [movie id="420622"]"Eclipse"[/movie] in which none of them appears.
Instead the footage, which debuted as an iTunes exclusive, focuses on Dakota Fanning's Jane and her crew of Volturi vampire badasses, giving us our closest look yet at their roles in "Eclipse." And the 40-second clip is doubly interesting because this scene does not appear in the book on which the film is based.
The scene opens as the Volturi, the Italy-based royalty of the vampire world, look down upon a collection of newborn vampires sowing chaos on the city streets. These just-turned bloodsuckers were created by Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) with the express purpose of destroying Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and his family, as well as Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart). The Volturi watch the Seattle newborns feed on humans, overturn cars and generally create an atmosphere of violent chaos.
"They've already drawn too much attention," Demetri (Charlie Bewley) says.
"So has our inaction," Felix (Daniel Cudmore) responds. "Others may begin to question the Volturi's effectiveness."
But the diminutive Jane is not buying this call for a show of strength. "Let them," she says, her blood-red eyes unblinking.
Felix remains unsatisfied. "Maybe we should consult with Aro," he suggests.
It's then that we see Jane's abilities on full display. She can inflict incapacitating pain with only her thoughts — a special ability she developed after being burned at the stake as a child. As she holds Felix using only her mind, Jane's brother Alec (Cameron Bright) looks on.
"Aro's decisions are being watched," she says cryptically. "Either we let them do what they were created for, or we end them. Decisions, decisions."
