I’ve watched the trailers a hundred times each, I’m pretty sure I’ve watched every tiny little piece of sneaky fan footage and all the various interviews floating around. And I’ve studied every single ‘official picture’ and ‘sneaky fan picture’ in detail.

And now we have trailer NUMBER THREE! Yay!

I attached the countdown to my facebook, and I raced home from work to watch those final eight minutes, only to have my little heart broken when they played the second trailer. Of course, the countdown was only until the morning of (in America), not the actual release time.
But it was there for me, ready when I woke up, and I watched it over and over until I had to leave for work. (Yes, I’ve been working way too many shifts and neglecting university – but it’s been fun.)

So now, I give to you: all my many reactions to this final little installment of funtimes before we actually get to go to the cinemas! (Which is December 11 here down under.)

My first reaction was irritation, I’d seen Tyler’s car swerve and roll out of control towards Bella, 100 times before. I’d seen Edward jump in and do his intense little glary thing. Excuse me people, I wanted more!
…And then Eddie got up and jumped over the truck and away from the car wreck scene. I’d seen this through video footage from some sneaky fans previously, but it was much nicer to see it in high quality.

I was also disappointed by the repeat of the “You’re impossibly fast, and strong.” spiel by Bella, I’d already seen than a hundred times. Yes, we know you’re afraid, come on, show me something new!

But let me get onto some of my best and favourite and most-able-to-nitpick-over scenes from the new trailer!

(Please note that this is an official still and not from the trailer.)

This was our first glimpse of such a crucial scene! Something new! Something exciting! Something… wait, that’s not a booth and they sure aren’t sitting in an Italian restaurant…

Yes, I like to nitpick. It’s what I do. I nitpicked my whole way through Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone movie – despite the fact that I was only a tweenie at the time. However, I have not since nitpicked ONCE about another Harry Potter movie – except in extreme circumstances. And I promise you, whilst I’ll nitpick about Twilight, I won’t do the same for the next three movies UNLESS they start trying to cut out/merge the werewolves because there’s “just too many”. (Ok, maybe they can cut out Collin and Brady – but no one else! I draw the line there!)

Where’s the privacy when you’re sitting in the middle of a restaurant, man? Ok, so nobody puts Baby in the corner, but goddamnit, you should’ve put Bella and Edward there!

Having said that, the actual dialogue spinnets we hear are fabulous! I am mucho excitedo!

Then, whilst we listen to Bella ramble off her theories about Edward, we see him climbing a tree. Why is Edward climbing a tree? Excuse me, am I the ONLY one who has noticed the fact that someone in this movie must clearly have a tree fetish because in just about every scene I’ve seen, they’ve been climbing trees, clinging to trees, hanging out in trees, just generally being tree-ish! Now I like trees… Infact, I’d go as far as saying I love them, I really do. But I don’t have a creepy fetish for them. These people obviously do. Maybe we should get them some serious help?

OR MAYBE WE SHOULD JUST SQUEAL IN DELIGHT BECAUSE THE TREE FETISH THING WAS THE MOST SUPER COOL IDEA EVER! (Yes, I’m being serious.) I love the idea that they’re hanging out in trees, I honestly wish we had trees around here that I could do the same in. And those sweeping shots around the two hanging out high up in the branches are epic. Absolutely epic. (But more about the actual tree-hanging-out-in later.)


Please may I have one of those trees planted in my backyard? I will break the Australian water restrictions to keep it! I absolutely and most certainly must have a Forks tree!

But the trees weren’t the only things I liked in the trailer…

When Edward gets all tough and manly and vampirey on us, breaking trees and running fast… I… Wait… wasn’t he supposed to be sparkling when he was breaking that tree? Man I love that they must be keeping his sparkles a secret until the movies – that is the one thing I’m looking forward to more than any other. I’ll probably faint when I see it.

“What if I’m not the hero, what if I’m the bad guy?” Excuse me, whilst I swoon.


This voiceover occurs during my absolute best and favourite scene thus far in ANY trailer/still/sneaky footage/other:
What a smug bastard. Look at him, he can’t wipe that smile off his face. All the while, everyone else is parting like the Red Sea for Moses. Well I would be too if I was 108-odd years old and had just snagged me a 17 year old girlfriend. How’s that for skill. Lol.
Oh man, I couldn’t resist that one – even though my freakish obsession scares most people away. I am a very very loyal little Twilighter – I just have a really wicked (but not necessarily good) sense of humour.


But I digress – as I still have much to talk about.

The Meadow. At least, I assume that’s the Meadow. And once again, I assume Edward isn’t sparkling because that’s a surprise. Best. Surprise. Ever. I can’t help it, but my expecations just keep getting higher. He better sparkle brighter than I glow neon on the first day of summer. How much longer must you keep this from me? Oh yeah… December 11.

And now, I have to nitpick a little again…

“Say it outloud, say it.” Since when did Edward become so domineering? Yes, once again I’m nitpicking – but as I said, I gotta do it and it’s only this one little time. I promise to be the BEST little Twilighter for the rest of the movies! It creeped me out. Please Edward, can’t we just go back to your house and get our cuddle on? (And by ‘we’ I mean me and you, no Bella please. :P)

Yeah the kiss was hot and I fell out of my chair and whatever. We all know how we all reacted. We don’t need to go into detail. Although I’d like to stop here and question the PG rating – man they looked like they were about to get their naked on! (I would not object to naked Edward.)

I loved the scene where James and co are ripping apart the security guard, it was awesome. I almost kinda wish James wasn’t ripped apart at the end by Eddie now – movie James is way cooler than book James.

I am super psyched for that scene where Alice and Emmett and Jasper go all kung-fu on James’ ass. That’s also going to be superb. I know it’s only a one second clip, but I just kept rewinding back and watching it over and over.

I’ve not seen anything cooler than that, yet.
I dare you to find me something cooler.

Now, obviously I know there was much trailer to discuss and I only picked out bits and pieces. But seriously, if I went through every tiny little second of that trailer with you, I’d have a novel. And I would publish it and sell it at work for $22.95.

Overall, I loved it. I am so utterly impressed with how closely they’ve tried to stick to the storyline. I am so often disappointed when books are turned into movies and I really REALLY like where Twilight the movie is headed – my nitpicking is just because I have OCD (Obsessive Cullen Disorder for those out of the loop) and I nitpick when I’m procrastinating. Yes, I have to write a 2000 word history essay on Margaret Thatcher.

I am really really super absolutely excited. I have mega jitters.

So now that my little rant is over, what were your favourite bits? Did you find yourselves nitpicking too? And what do you think of them hiding the sparkles from us?

p.s. Those stills are from various sources, I obviously don’t own them! – HGE, Twilight Australia, the Twilight German Site, etc. Most can be found via the URLs on my sidebar. —->
