'Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 2' Trailer: Now There's a Cute Kid, So Hopefully That Will Pull in Some Ratings

June 20, 2012


In this second chapter of Breaking Dawn--the final Twilight film until we almost immediately start it over again--Kristen Stewart is now a vampire, and her dead-eyed love affair with Robert Pattinson has brought the joyless couple an equally dead-eyed 10-year-old daughter. Unfortunately, while most would regard such a late addition of a cute young character as a desperate means of spicing up the tired formula--like when Growing Pains added the little girl from Annie five years in--Michael Sheen's Dracula is given false information that makes him think this girl was bitten, not naturally born, into vampirism, and that is a big no-no in the vampire world. Even the living dead think biting a kid is pretty fucked up. Anyway, that leads to a big conflict, and apparently the only way to sort it out is to run at each other in an open snowfield.

Poor Taylor Lautner, reduced to just an occasional quip to remind you he's still there. Just like Ben Seaver after Chrissy showed up.
