'Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2' Trailer: 'A Lot of Red Eyes' (Video)
In the Twilight universe, confusion often leads to near-death experiences. (See: Edward Cullen’s Romeo and Juliet-inspired suicide attempt in New Moon). Unfortunately for the Cullen coven, that rule continues in the new trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.
Shortly after happy parents Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) welcomed their bundle of joy, the human-vampire Renesmee, into the world, Italian vampire bad guys the Volturi have been put under the false impression that she was created by a vampire biting a human child.
That’s strictly against vampire rules, and they aren’t happy about it.
“Maintaining our secret has never been more imperative,” Aro (Michael Sheen) says in the trailer, just before we see a few dozen hooded Volturi walking across snow covered ground and generally looking like they’re up to no good.
But luckily for the Cullens, new father Edward has a plan.
“If enough people knew the truth, maybe we could convince the Volturi to listen,” he says. Cue a brief montage of him recruiting other vampires to help in an upcoming confrontation with the Volturi.
Jacob (Taylor Lautner), who has an interest in this fight because of his two-pronged affection for Bella and her daughter, still seems uncomfortable allying himself with a bunch of vampires.
“A lot of red eyes around here,” he says.
