The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Trailer - Your Thoughts
Done? Good. Now I may be an amateur when it comes to the Twilight series, but I’m still going to go out on a limb and say that this final trailer is perhaps the best Summit Entertainment has put out since the series began. After trailer upon trailer of angsty teen romance, we finally have one that’s, well, pretty badass.
It’s no secret the third and fourth book begin to veer off into darker territory, which is good for Summit (I think) because it’s trailers like this one that will attract a different kind of audience; perhaps one that’s male and interested in seeing a massive vampire battle instead of Taylor Lautner’s chiseled chest. Now I see why they brought on someone like David Slade for this installment. The guy has worked in the vampire genre before (with 30 Days of Night), and with Eclipse including a big fight between vampires, it was smart to go out and get a genre director who could deliver something that would appeal to more than just your everyday Twi-hards.
But does this trailer make the film seem too dark? Is it missing some of those same innocent vibes that the previous two installments carried? I certainly don’t think so – I believe Eclipse looks like the best installment yet, and I see why Summit wanted to debut it over the summer instead of in November. This trailer certainly makes it feel like a summer blockbuster, and I just hope (for the sake of you fans out there) that it delivers.
What are your thoughts on this very different trailer. It’s unlike any Twilight trailer we’ve seen so far – is that a good thing or a bad thing, in your opinion?
