MTV: Shot by Shot Analysis of the Eclipse Trailer

MTV breaks down all the finer points you may not have noticed.

“Shot 21: Wolves and Vampires going at it, real end-of-the-world stuff, dogs and cats, living together (

Shot 21: Title card: ” … The World is Waiting For.”

Shot 22: We see Edward handing Bella a jewelry box and smiling. Clearly, he’s decided to take Beyoncé’s advice.

Shot 23: Jacob in his workshop, pounding his fist against a bench. Something tells me it’s not because he screwed up the frame on his soapbox car.

Shot 24: The new Victoria, Bryce Dallas Howard, sprints through the woods while bouncing from tree to tree.

Shot 25: Gratuitous no-shirt-Taylor shot! Hey, Slade is showing impressive restraint: It took him 1:14 into the trailer.

Shot 26: Victoria squares off against Edward and Bella in the snow. Looks pretty.

Shot 27: Edward topples the tree, knocking Victoria over a canyon. ”

    I’m not impressed! I was just so excited with New Moon which i loved. This was not interesting, the trailer did not appeal to me…….i really love that book Eclipse, specially the tent scene….oh well lets wait and see if its Twilight again a huge dissapointment.

  2. It’s funny how these books and films seem to bring out valleys of narrow-mindedness in people.
    I just hope the number in your name is not your year of birth.

  3. i thought the trailer was great you just cant make some people happy no matter what you do they act like they just watched the movie geez

  4. I’m extremely pleased with the trailer! Eclipse is my all time favorite book from the Twilight Saga! Edward, Bella, Jacob, the Cullens, the wolves they look so amazing! And the army of newborns gave me chills coming out of the water like that!

  5. This trailer looked amazing! From the newborn army to the fight scenes & the engagement ring! This has just made me so excited for June 30th!

  6. I have to say, these movies are not catching the unique way the twilight book series did. I really liked the 1st movie they made, it was very indie feeling and different from other mainstream movies. But this trailer is looking a little cheesy and expected, as the 2nd movie did. I was really hoping to see something really catch my attention in this trailer, everything is just too mainstream looking. Oh and Kristen Stewart is looking prettier, is it the mascara?

  7. So excited for eclipse! I thought they did a great job with the trailer. I hate how Kristen has to wear a wig though. I don’t think it looks very good.

    WOW! I can’t wait. I love it!!! It looks like the best yet! I am so excited. I read the books after I saw Twilight, thankfully. I know that I would have been disappointed if I pictured the characters one way, and saw them another in the movie.

  9. I loved the trailer. I thought the first got the romance and the triangle and this got the action, suspense, scary factors going on. I’m glad they showed more in this trailer. It looks absolutely amazing.

  10. i always watch moview trailers on youtube, it is really fun to watch so many movie trailers at once :*:
