The opening of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” is less than three weeks away, and the hype machine is kicking into high gear.
Two new TV ads released over the weekend play up the epic romance of Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson). The first one is titled “Love Forever” and features shots of their wedding, a tearful Jacob (Taylor Lautner) urging Bella to “appreciate your last night as a human” and a little moonlight skinny dip.
The second, “Experience,” is a little more action-heavy, with the requisite shirtless Jacob shot and several of his shape-shifting brethren apparently displeased with the Edward-Bella union. Edward goes in to protector mode, intoning “I won’t let them hurt my family.”
The voice-over, meanwhile, urges you to “be a part of the worldwide experience” — the implication being that you’re an outcast if you don’t.
“Breaking Dawn – Part 1” opens Nov. 18, but if you’re reading this post, you probably knew that already. Take a look at the two new TV spots:
