Yay!!! In anticipation for its June 30th release, the trailer for Eclipse has finally been released! Come on, we’ve all been waiting for this ever since we saw New Moon in November, haven’t we? The trailer looks very, very good and looks like the director and producers are going to include the main elements of the book – including the love triangle between Bella, Edward, and Jacob that shows itself more than ever in this part of the series, the Volturi’s anger that Bella has not yet been changed, and of course, the fact that that evil villain vampire, Victoria is still on the loose and is out for Bella’s blood.
There are a few things that you may notice from the trailer, besides the fact that Eclipse looks like it’s going to be even better than the book (because Eclipse was actually my least favorite in the series.) One is that Bella’s hair may seem to look…different. It’s not bad but there does seem to be a slight difference in her appearance. This is because after filming New Moon, Kristen Stewart filmed the movie The Runaways where she plays rocker girl Joan Jett. For the part, Kristen was forced to chop off all of her luscious brown locks and go for a much shorter and funkier ‘do. But because director David Slade, and the rest of us, wanted to maintain Bella’s look for the third movie, she wore a wig.
The role of Victoria is also a different Victoria than the one we saw in Twilight. That Victoria was played by Rachelle Lefevre, who was unavailable to reprise the role for Eclipse. Victoria will now be played by Bryce Dallas Howard, who has expressed before what an amazing job she thought Rachelle did and that she was extremely surprised that Rachelle wouldn’t take on the role once again. So are we, Bryce, so are we. But I’m sure Bryce will work just fine as the evil villain.
I am so excited that the trailer has come out! That must mean that the movie is soon on the way right? Oh wait. It’s still three and a half months until that happens. Oh pooh. Well, in the meantime, enjoy the trailer! You can watch it here!
