The Breaking Dawn 2 Full Teaser What Did You Think

Granted it is just a teaser. It’s hard to really accomplish anything other than your branding and release date in under 30 seconds, but what did you think? Anyone else think the deer thing was a sort of homage to the beginning of the original Twilight movie? Plus is it just me or is the blue dress almost the exact same shade as Bella’s prom dress?

Also, since many of you saw the teaser last night at the Hunger Games, and from our experience most Twilight fans are in addition Hunger Games fans (or at the very least neutral to the idea of the series) what did you think of the movie? *Obviously spoilers in the comments, so don’t scroll down if you don’t want to know!*


  1. That was the trailer shown before The Hunger Games? Is it the full teaser?
    I went to a TGH screening yesterday (huge fan) and I was hoping to watch the trailer but, you know, Europe πŸ™

    • Twilight_News says:

      Yep that was what was shown

    • velvet409 says:

      That is the 15 second sneak peek of the 30 second teaser trailer that is showing before the Hunger Games (at least in the US). The full 30 second trailer is supposed to be available online March 26th.

  2. Loved The Hunger Games. Thought they stuck pretty close to the book, although it’s been a while since I’ve read them. I didn’t get the BD pt 2 teaser though. I was pissed! I don’t know if it’s because we saw it in IMAX or because it was at midnight, either way…..I had been looking forward to seeing it and was pissed when I had to wait till today to find it on the web!

  3. I thought the movie was great!! Better than I expected :). When the trailer for BD 2 came on the theater went quiet it was very cool!! I loved the deer πŸ™‚ Can’t wait for November!!!

  4. I really felt that The Hungers Games was excellent!! I was blown away with how they accomplished everything necessary to be true to the story, and anything they left out, I didn’t miss. I wasn’t very impressed with the teaser of Breaking Dawn because, let’s be honest, it’s a teaser. I didn’t get too excited until I saw Bella step from behind the tree while hunting the deer. I got chills!!

  5. I’m a nauseatingly huge fan of THG and thought they did a really great job with the movie. They stayed as close to the books as they could without making it a three- to three and a half-hour movie, and the casting really was good. Josh looks weird with blond hair, but by the time he was delivering lines, he was Peeta. And Effie – ohemgee! – inspired casting, truly. Katniss, Prim, Rue, even Cato…. Seneca Crane and President Snow…. so, so fantastic. I even enjoyed the score, which I cannot say for the Twilight movies. A couple of the special effects were a little off for me, but overall I feel they got it right.

    The Breaking Dawn trailer was shockingly short. Afterward, there was a lot of “That’s it?” going around.

    • That’s because it was a teaser, not a full trailer. We’re hoping for the full trailer at Snow White and the Huntsmen in June. That is a hope, I have no idea when they are actually going to release a full length one.

  6. The BD part 2 teaser was great – I loved it, and the theater I was at was cheering as soon as they showed Bella running! It was the very first trailer they showed (thankfully I managed to get there early enough to catch it).

    As for The Hunger Games, I was incredibly surprised. I was still a bit uncertain by some of the casting when I went in. But after seeing the film last night, I think Ross nailed it (as well as the cast). It was pretty darn close to the book, so I’m happy. πŸ™‚

  7. That was sooo freakin awesome. I love her look at the deer. This is going to be amazing. I can’t wait.

  8. MamaDTres says:

    Sorry but trailer was a HUGE dissapointment. No shot of Renesme, or the Vultori. I needed more than her just running through the woods. Maybe a shot of Alice & Jasper leaving? A shot Renesme with Jacob?

    • Are you kidding me? You can’t even spell the names in the book. It’s called a TEASER trailer for a reason.

  9. Expat Grrl says:

    I am not in any way a hater of THG (I’ve never read the books), but I have to say – I don’t get it. What is all the hoopla about? It seems like your run of the mill, ominous futuristic thriller. I thought the acting was good enough, the story was good enough (although very predictable) – I just don’t see why there was such a build-up for this movie. It was entertaining enough, but, honestly, without all of the press this is the kind of movie I would have forgotten about soon after seeing it. Why is this supposed to be the next big franchise after Twilight? THG fans – help me understand what you love about it. Thanks!

    • I tried to get into THG too but could not finish the book. It was soooo boring. But now i am going to give it another try. If millions of people love it so much then it must be an amazing book. I am going to try to read all three books. Critics are loving this movie. It must be really amazing but i will wait until the DVD comes out and hopefully i will have read all three books by then.

    • The books have much more depth to them than the film, as I discovered last night. The acting was good, the casting perfect, and the pace of the film was good, too.

      I missed the line from Gale…”Katniss, remember I—” I just know that in the book he was going to say, ‘I love you’, but in the film they had him say “I’ll see you soon.” Totally NOT cool to change that.

      There were a couple of other things left out, but they were minor things. I also wonder how people who haven’t read the books are going to understand a lot of the sublte underlying themes. Specifically, you don’t get a good sense in the film of how suspicious and distrustful Katniss really is. She suspects the motives of everything Peeta says and does until near the end. You don’t really get that in the movie, or at least I didn’t.

      I liked how they flashed back to District 12 to give us a glimpse of how Gale was taking all of this. Brief glances, but it was more than Collins gave us. As you can probably tell, I have a soft spot for Gale.

      The camera movement made me nauseous at times, but that’s probably because I’m old. LOL

    • Twilibrarian says:

      The big hooplah is, and this is coming from a 61 year old HS librarian, just like HP & Twilight, the books and the movies are and will be blockbusters! THG is Roman gladiators, totalitarian governments, Nazi Germany, the haves vs the have nots, and all those great themes of love, loyalty, family, sacrifice, etc., etc., etc. we found in HP and Twilight. Like Twilight encourages good citizenship by blood donations, THG has groups everywhere holding food drives to their local soup kitchens and food pantries.

    • Faye massenroe says:

      I have to agree with you. When I saw the trailers it just reminded me of total recall and running man with Arnold Schwarzenegger. When I saw elizabeth banks makeup I was immediately turned off. It seems like the studio is trying to make THG just like Twilight. The marketing seems to just piggyback on exactly what was done for Twilight. I have to applaud everyone with Twilight as they were not expecting it to blow up and be as huge as it is. they weren’t expecting the huge success so everything done with Twilight and it’s success was more organic. With THG it seems like they trying too hard to meet or match the success of Twilight. If the movies or books are that good, people will come and buy.

      • Oh, please, how are they trying to make it too much like Twilight? Any YA franchise is going to be promoted as much as possible, so saying that the big promotion for it makes it just like Twilight is ridiculous. If that’s the case, you could say that Twilight was just like HP since it had big promotions going for it as well. Now, if you’re talking about the fact that Elizabeth Bank’s character had very pale makeup applied to her skin in the previews, that’s the way it is in the book- they’re not trying to copy Twilight in the makeup job; her makeup is actually supposed to be over dramatic vs. Twilight that just does a really poor job with making their vampires seem pale without over doing it.

        • Actually Liongate said they we doing the same promotion as twilight because it worked so well for Summit.

          • Faye massenroe says:

            Yes and even the magazines like vanity fair are doing the same type of photo shoots to mimic what the Twilight cast shoots. PLEASE!!!!!!

    • You need to read the books.

  10. I really liked THG. I was happy to see that it wasn’t as violent as I feared they might make it. It was really hot in the theater where we saw it so I felt like we were part of the fire sequence. I thought they stuck pretty close to the book with a couple of big things left out for me at least–involving food-after Rue and at the Capitol. But, other than that the acting was good-especially some of the minor characters and it covered a LOT. I was sadly disappointed in the BD2 trailer. I guess I thought it was going to be longer so I was sad…but looking forward to a longer version soon. What we did see in the trailer looked great-especially the eyes! Other great trailers for SWATH , Avengers, and Spiderman were shown though and they look great too!

  11. Awesome. I like how it emphasizes that all Twilight vamps are predators. No blood substitutes for them! Good to hear the cheers in the theater too.

    As for The Hunger Games, clearly it resonates with a lot of people, which is terrific (I haven’t read the books). On some entertainment sites there is the ridiculous pitting of Hunger Games against Twilight, which is just another excuse to bash Twilight. The bigger story is that the once-overlooked, imaginative genre of young adult fiction has for years been at the forefront of popular culture, from Harry Potter to Twilight to Hugo to HG and many others.

    HG, like Twilight, is afflicted with a vocal group of knee-jerk haters. They rant about Battle Royale all the time, as if there are not precursors to everything – even BR. Death Race 2000 and The Running Man predate both HG and BR, and of course there were the Roman gladitorial games. Stories inspire each other and evolve; that’s their nature.

    • Joshua L. Roberts says:

      In truth, I can see why people would compare Hunger Games to Twilight versus…let’s say Harry Potter vs Twilight, as HG has a love triange, has a lead female character, is told in first person… while in the long run they are both incredibly different, they do have more likenesses than the other things Twilight has been pitted against.

      I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I’m going tomorrow. I LOVED the books, absolutely LOVED them… and got my friends addicted to them as well.

      As for the teaser… I mean, as a teaser it is pretty cool. It really doesn’t offer too much other than seeing Bella as a vampire. I was hoping to see her hunting a mountain lion, but the reality is, and I HOPE they actually do this, the deer works better thematically, as it pays homage to the deer hunting scene at the very beginning of the first Twilight movie… It’s like they are saying, “Bella has come full circle”…

    • I actually heard about Hunger Games from Stephenie Meyer on her website a few years ago. There shouldn’t be any negative feelings between the two franchises/fan groups.

  12. Anyone else annoyed by the fact Jacob is approaching Bella close to the Cullen house?

  13. Did you read the book clear as day you didn’t because if you did then you wouldn’t be asking stupid questions. I swear some of you twihards kill with that bs.

  14. Well to be honest I wanted more from the Breaking Dawn Trailer as well. It was ok but I expected more. As for The Hunger Games, I LOVED IT! So many people are already complaining but I thought the movie was great

  15. I don’t see it. All that keeps playing is a advertisement for that HOP movie. -_-

  16. Faye massenroe says:

    Remember in Twilight Edward tells Bella that he likes her in the dark/navy blue when he takes her to dinner and when she goes to meet the rest of his family. I wish that they put that theme thru out the series. Thank you Bill Condon for bookending for us once again!

  17. Faye massenroe says:

    Oh and the Target sneak peek was better and longer than the teaser, but I liked the teaser cause Edward was in it. Can Jacob just leave already!

  18. Fiona Cullen says:

    The embedded player of the teaser trailer isn’t working here! πŸ™ I want to see the teaser!

  19. Elizabeth (EverythingRemindsMeOfTwilight) says:

    I just got home from seeing the trailer in front of The Hunger Games, and I was impressed. A couple days ago when you posted an entry about the “Five Things we hoped to see in the teaser,” I made a list of the things that I thought might or would be good. Bill Condon, however, did much better than that. He did EXACTLY what should have been done and what makes this teaser so great–he brought us back to Bella. To HER shining moment. It shows an incredible depth and understanding of the books and the fans that Bill Condon used Ch. 26 from Breaking Dawn to introduce this teaser. Bella’s voiceover with glimpses of her being a vampire now serve to remind the audience of her character arc and that though she’d gone through everything else up to now, it is in this moment where she shines and finds her true niche. Jacob accepts her and, more than that, he’s there as a reminder that she is still Bella. To Edward, she is still beautiful but also now an equal–the same temperature. Bella’s eyes are what remind us so vividly of the differences now though and that she is lethal and that little dear better watch out. πŸ˜‰ In truth though, I think the deer and the shot of Bella looking at the deer is another example of Bill Condon bringing it full circle. It was my Mom who had actually pointed out to me that the deer at the beginning of the first Twilight was really like a little “Bella deer” and I think BC was incorporating that. Only now, the little Bella deer is as fierce as a mountain lion. πŸ™‚ I don’t think the blue dress is the same hue as the prom dress, but I think it’s also hard to judge because CH used the blue filter too. I always expected them to save the blue for Bella until she was a vamp because it’s “cold” and Edward’s favorite. And again, even if it’s not the same hue, it hearkens back to that as well. So, considering it was short (as intended since there’s still a long time til November), I am very happy. It was a wonderful reminder that the main character is still the most important part of the story.

    I also really liked the Hunger Games. I thoroughly enjoyed the books and was impressed by the movie. As my sister pointed out afterwards, with any book adapted for the screen, you lose the mental thoughts of the characters and a look or shot can only carry so much; but it was still well done. The “essence”–the theme–of the books was quite clear and well laid out. There will always be changes that happen from book to film, but I thought that the majority of the changes were appropriate for helping to tell the story or convey an essential emotion. A great film and I hope I get the chance to see it again (I will take extra tissues this time…what I had was not enough). πŸ™‚

  20. I loved the teaser trailer! It was short, but I expected as much. I guess I was so pleased because of that last shot where Bella steps to the side of the tree into our view looking at the deer. I loved that!
    I also LOVED The Hunger Games! I cried twice nd was totally drawn in. Of course it lacked so much of the depth of the book, but that is the natural consequence of squeezing everything into 2 hours. It’s better if you haven’t read the books for a while. Anyway, I was completely pleased with the movie.
    I can’t wait for November!!!!

  21. I loved the teaser for BD part 2. It was the much of what I expected,because they don’t want to give any of the “money shots” away just yet. The audience I saw it with all gasped when they saw it. So alot of early excitement for BD part 2 is on the rise. As for the Hunger Games,it was good and pretty accurate to the novel,although the explanation of the Avox’s is glossed over. I read all three books in the HG trilogy and when some people were talking about mixed feelings they had for Mockingjay,I could see why. I think the HG movies are going to be exciting with as much polticial intriuge as well as action. I look forward to seeing Catching Fire next year.

    i went last night to see thg and i was expecting to see the trailer, but the problem is that i live in mexico, so i won’t be able to se it until march 26, i was a little disappointed but the only thing that made me smiled a little was that they put the snow white and the huntsman trailer

  23. Emmett Cullen says:

    itΒ΄s great.i have look after this teaser.heΒ΄s a littlebit there a theaser that is longer?

  24. Aileen Leon says:

    can someone tell me why it doesnt let me watch it , first it only showed the letters SP in yellow , then it only showed the 15 seconds , pleaassse i just cant till monday.

  25. Moonbeam says:

    I loved the teaser trailer. I also enjoyed Hunger Games – it was great! Our whole family has read the Twilight books and the Hunger Games books (mom, dad, two teenage girls). If you’re looking for a comparison or something — how our dedication to each franchise is different — I don’t think we’ll own Hunger Games on DVD and watch it obsessively like we have the Twilight movies, but we definitely enjoyed the Hunger Games books and loved the movie! We also don’t actually own the HG books – we got them from the library, whereas the Twilight books hold a place of honor, and we own more than one copy of some of them. I think maybe that’s because of the romance in the Twilight books, as well as the fantasy element — the superpowers. I think they give you a kind of high when you’re reading/watching them. There aren’t any superpowers in THG nor is there much romance. So while I really enjoyed THG and will definitely see all the movies, I didn’t get the same type of “high” from them, and neither did the rest of the family. That said, my oldest daughter wants a bow! πŸ™‚

    • I felt the same as you about THG. It’s a good series in it’s own right,but it doesn’t leave me wanting to read it over and over like the Twilight saga. That said,I am waiting to see Catching Fire next year and Mockingjay,although that’s my least favorite in the series.

  26. Enjoyed THG, thought it was pretty well adapted, As with Twilight, it is impossible to convey the full depth of the storyline in a 2 hour movie, but all in all, well-done. I was thrilled to see the (very, very, very) brief teaser. The audience was “eh”, but whatever. Can hardly wait for next November!! One thing about THG: decent soundtrack…too bad they didn’t put the music in the actual movie. Weird. Seems like they are borrowing the idea of a good compilation CD from Twilight, but not really using the music in the film (where it could have been used very effectively).

  27. Lynne Stringer says:

    It’s very short, but I still enjoyed it, although I hope we get another teaser before the full trailer. Seeing as it’s only March I think it’s possible.

    I have done a fan reaction video to the trailer if anyone’s interested. I’ll post it separately from this so it can be removed if the moderators don’t want videos here.

  28. Lynne Stringer says:

    This is the link to my fan reaction video if anyone is interested.

  29. I really liked the teaser and I can’t wait for more πŸ™‚ As far as THG is concerned I loved the stuff in the arena, thought the build up was good but there could have been more, kinda thought they bombed on the costumes. I think it is maybe because they were so well described in the book and it is just too hard to make them just right
