It’s officially the first day of the annual San Diego Comic-Con, and we’re excited to be here. The first panel we went to see was none other than the final installment of the super popular Twilight series, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II.
There’s a few Comic-Con attendees who are relieved to see the supernatural romance series leave, but you have to admit it did give the convention more attention. Suddenly a new flock of fans were flooding Hall H on Thursdays, screaming at the top of their lungs like the rest of us when they see their favorite actor. It just so happens that some of these fans want to rip the clothes off of a couple of their favorite male actors. Then again, it’s not like this is the only movie that women have gotten gaga over.
Right off the bat they bring in some of the stars of the series including Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner along with the author Stephenie Meyer. But before they start off the Q&A portion of the panel, they show us some footage from the movie introduced by director Bill Condon. This is what we saw:
- We begin with a close-up of Bella’s new red vampire eyes. The camera cuts across the room as we look at the world through her eyes. She sees everything in acute detail; from the water dripping down a cup to a tiny leaf on the floor. She walks over to Edward, slowly finding her way into his arms. He’s taken back by her beauty as a newborn vampire. Bella soaks it in, taking a look at herself in the mirror. But when she goes to hug Edward she realizes how strong she is, mainly because she’s choking her husband. She wants to see Renesmee but she needs to hunt first. They share a really steamy kiss and are off into the woods.
- Bella and Edward race across the woods together. Edward stops her and has her listen to the woods around her. She centers in on a deer in the woods. But before she goes off to eat her prey, she hears something else. She hears a rock climber nearby and smells the blood from a cut on his shoulder. Edward tells her not to go after him but she proceeds to run after the rock climber. He manages to stop her and ends up drinking the blood out of a mountain lion.
- Edward and Bella return back to the Cullen house and are greeted by Jacob. He sees Bella and says “I didn’t expect you to seem so… you. Except for the creepy eyes.” Bella goes up towards Jacob and finally takes a whiff of him with her super vampire nose and gets why the rest of the Cullens say that he stinks. The three walk inside to see Renesmee.
- Alice puts a new set of brown contacts into Bella’s eyes in order to hide her new blood red eyes. The rest of the Cullen clan try their best to give Bella advice on how to act human around her father when he comes over to the house. She tries her best to fix her posture and how to blink all over again. Bella’s a bit frustrated by it all.
