So I was browsing though YouTube the other day when I happened to stumble across the Eclipse trailer, at first I thought it was just another fanmade trailer but it turns out it was the official one! As you may know from reading my blog I am a pretty big Twilight series fan and a huge Jacob fan. So when I saw the trailer I was pretty darn excited but before I go into what I thought of the new trailer, you should probably watch it. So here it is =]
What did you think? Good or bad? In general I was pretty disappointed for numerous reasons but here are some of my top reasons.
1. Bella/Kristens Hair
Is she wearing a wig? I am not sure if she is but just the fact that I am wondering if she is probably means she is. Well her wig is horrible, it looks fizzy and very unlike her natural hair. So I have issues with that, as someone who as worked on hair/makeup if you’re about to release a national trailer you should fix the actress’s wig.
2. Where is the Wolf Pack?
So if you’re read Eclipse you know that the Wolf Pack has a pretty big important role to play in the story but in the trailer we don’t see them or the cullens for that matter. Also in eclipse more wolves are added, like Leah and Seth so I would have liked to see them.
Now I know they went and changed the actress for Victoria which really ticks me off. However why would you focus on her in the trailer when she know looks completely different! Victoria does have a big part to play in the story but she isn’t actually in the book that much. It’s what happens in Seattle that makes the big difference. So yeah Victoria just annoyed me in general.
4. Seattle, Jacob and The Love Triangle
We get it, Bella is confused about who she wants to kiss. Why does that have to be the focus of the trailer? When the book has such a good storyline why focus on the stupid love triangle? Where is the information about the vampire murders in Seattle and why isn’t Jacob with his pack? I know everyone wants to see the silly love triangle but it annoys me when its such a good book that they choose to focus on that! I wanted to see the vampire army, Jasper kicking butt and the new wolves. But alas Hollywood is marketing to the fourteen year old girls and so we get stuck with the love triangle.
So those are the things I find annoying but the one thing I did like about it was when Jacob said “I am gonna fight for you until your heart stops beating”. He is of course referring to Bella being turned into a vampire not her actually dieing but it was still a really sweet line. I am hoping they will release a longer trailer later with the wolves, vampire army, Jasper and more but until they do I was pretty disappointed with this first trailer.
What do you think? Did you love it? Hate it? Or are you just tired of the whole Twilight thing already? Let me know and until next time,
