Last week we got a hair-raising sneak peek at how "New Moon" filmmakers brought Jacob Black and his pack of shapeshifting wolves to life. It seems only fair, then, that the same treatment be given to that dastardly ruling coven of vampires, the Volturi.
The "Volturi Featurette" (available on MySpace and embedded after the jump), focuses on the fight between Bella's dazzling vampire love Edward and monstrous enforcer Felix (played by Daniel Cudmore). "He doesn't have a hope in hell of winning the fight," Robert Pattinson said in a behind-the-scenes interview. "It's on much more of a grand scale than anything we did on 'Twilight,'" he added. If director Chris Weitz's goal was to top the ballet studio scene from the first film, he surely did it with this epic dust-up.
Wires and padding helped Robert and Daniel perfect the acrobatic stunts without getting injured. Though the set did not fair as well. "We pretty much destroyed the entire set," enthused producer Wyck Godfrey.
The clip also introduces us to each Volturi member, with the actors giving a brief description of their character. Click play on the clip below to meet Aro, Marcus, Caius, Demetri, Felix, Alec and Jane.
