Final Eclipse Trailer: 5 Great Things About The New Eclipse Trailer

Everyone is buzzing about the final Eclipse Trailer for the upcoming Eclipse movie release on June 30th and I can definitely see why. The new Eclipse Trailer is so much better than the short Eclipse teaser trailer that was released a while back. The final trailer showcases the elements of action, the Edward/Bella/Jacob love triangle, and the newborn vampire story that are all prevalent in the third Twilight Saga novel. It shows just enough to get non-fans interested, and more than enough to get Twilight fans counting down to the movie release of Eclipse.

Many people including myself were initially disappointed with the Eclipse teaser that has recently been making the rounds in movie theatres as part of the previews. This is the one where there’s a whole lot of disjointed dialogue going on between Edward and Bella, Bella and Jacob, and random scenes of Victoria flying through the trees. The dialogue is stunted, there’s a lot of those terribly awkward pauses we’ve come to dread, and to me it just didn’t seem to depict what the story of Eclipse is really about. The Eclipse teaser focused more on dialogue with jagged transitions, and less on actually previewing the movie and the storyline. The release of this new Eclipse Trailer has definitely gotten things back on track – according to everyone’s discussions that I’ve witnessed, we’re all loving it! Without further introduction…

5 Great Things About The New Eclipse Trailer:

  1. It actually gives the Eclipse movie some backbone by setting up the storyline of where the characters are at post New Moon. Edward has proposed to Bella (Bella’s engagement ring makes an appearance), Jacob is anxious about Bella’s safety in terms of the vampires, and we are given enough info to glean that there’s an army of newborn vampires who will be causing havoc in this movie. The trailer instantly grabs your attention and tells you what is happening in Eclipse. Basically, the plot is set up for anyone who hasn’t read the books, and it is visually actualized for the Twilight fans who have waited so long for this to come together.
  2. The newborn vampires, specifically Riley, get a proper introduction in this final Eclipse Trailer. We’re taken out of Forks to new settings with glimpses of the attacks in Seattle and then back again to Forks. I loved the clip of the bad vampsĀ  slowly ascending out of the water looking menacing (and in my opinion, creepy as all hell).
  3. We see the wolves and vampires clash right before our eyes in the final seconds of the Eclipse Trailer. The fight scenes look incredible and are pivotal in the Eclipse storyline as Jacob and the wolves team up with the Cullens and the good vampires to face off with the vicious newborn vamps. Overall I really think they did a good job of showing clips that would make the viewer instantly want to go see the movie, Twilight fan or not.
  4. Everyone’s hair and makeup is looking good, despite fans concerns with stills and set photos that circulated. They’ve changed up characters’ hair such as Edward, Jasper and Carlisle but I think it works. The characters are evolving with the storyline so why shouldn’t their appearances alter a bit with those changes? Also, I was relieved to find that Bella’s wig did not seem to look hideous at all in this Eclipse Trailer. In fact, I’ll go as far as saying that it looks fine.
  5. We get glimpses of some of the best scenes from the Eclipse book – essentially, everything that happens up on the snowy mountain ranges towards the end of the story. Seeing Victoria in a flurry of snow and the arrival of the Volturi just solidified how amazing it’s going to be to see the story we love come to life. Eclipse is a lot of peoples’ favourite book in the Twilight Saga and it is also mine. The Eclipse Trailer mirrors the detail-rich writing from the book. I feel like it accomplished this without looking, sounding, or coming off as corny in any way.

Verdict of the final Eclipse Trailer? Total success. Check out the new Eclipse Trailer (Eclipse Trailer 2) in HD below:
