It's Breaking Something Alright: Breaking Dawn Part 1 Trailer

The worst mistake I’ve ever made was covering the Twilight Fan Fic panel at last year’s Comic Con. Not because it wasn’t absolutely and unexpectedly fascinating, but because in the wake of the article getting discovered by the fan fic writers themselves and generating a billion page hits, Dustin said that I’d be reviewing the next Twilight films. Talk about punishing success.

So the Breaking Dawn Part 1 trailer is up. That is, part 1 of Breaking Dawn, not part 1 of the trailer. They’re still releasing the trailer as whole parts even as they Harry Pottered the film into twice as much money. You know, if they broke it into three parts and converted it into 3D, they could double their money again. Of course if they added the extra dimension the acting would still only be two-dimensional … I swear I’ve made that joke before about a different movie.

In any case, here’s your pain:

Goodness me, but when Edward breaks a headboard, he doesn’t sparkle around about it.
