If you’re as excited about “Twilight” as we are here at MTV News, then you’re likely still reeling from the release of the brand-new trailer for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ on Tuesday.
Now that some time has passed in order to reflect on those two minutes and 30 seconds of goodness, we decided to seek out the reactions from our favorite dedicated “Twilight” experts.
“Fantastic. Definitely my favorite [trailer] of any of the movies,” gushed Laura Byrne-Cristiano, who owns TwilightLexicon.com. “I think [director] Bill Condon absolutely nailed it. He got everything: action, romance and an amazing collection of individual shots. There’s got to be close to 100 individual shots in that trailer, and it’s just absolutely stunning.”
Kara Hassell of TwilightersAnonymous.com agreed with Condon’s trailer-cutting brilliance.
“My overall reaction is I loved it,” she said. “I don’t think Bill could have done a better job. He picked everything that I think everybody wanted to see for the most part. I think it was perfect, and I wasn’t missing anything.”
Hassell added that she felt a more emotional connection to the new trailer. “There were a lot of heartfelt moments. I really liked how that played out in the trailer,” she said. “The last couple films, they tried to push the action in it, and I really liked that they stuck to the book and the heartfelt moments that are in ’Breaking Dawn.’ ”
Meanwhile, Kallie Matthews from TwilightSeriesTheories.com expressed delight in getting more glimpses of the arrival of baby Renesmee, or “Nessie,” a nickname readers of the book well know.
“We got to see a little bit of what it’s going to be like to have Nessie, and that’s going to be awesome,” Matthews said of Bella’s intense, climactic labor scenes, during which Renesmee is welcomed into the world. “I’m really, really excited, because it wasn’t all romance; it was some of the conflict and turmoil,” she added. “So that got me excited about it.”
