‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2’ Trailer: Vampires, Werewolves & One Giant Snow Fight
  |  @   |  

Summit Entertainment saved the best for last, and those who agonized waiting to see any new footage for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 are now breathing one huge sigh of relief. A new 90-second trailer for the film debuted last night during the MTV Music Video Awards, but just in case you didn’t have a chance to watch it last night, you have another chance to watch here.

Check out the new trailer here below.

Sure seeing Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson holding hands in the trailer may look a bit awkward now, but it looks like some of the major problems in the Breaking Dawn Part 2 come from the film’s visual effects. But that has been a consistent issue with the entire Twilight film franchise, so much so that it might as well be considered a badge of honor for this series.

MacKenzie Foy Image Is Not First Look At Twilight’s Renesmee
  |  @   |  

Back in October, we reported that child actress MacKenzie Foy had been cast in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn to play Renesmee Cullen, the half-human, half-vamp love child of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.

An image of Foy has been circulating online recently with the claim that it’s the first look at the 9-year-old actress in the role of Renesmee, but now Twilight Lexicon has proven this to be false. The photo (see it here at right) is actually from an old fashion shoot Foy did for Garnet Hill Clothing.

I’m not sure why an old photo would all of a sudden be uncovered and spread around as a new image from Breaking Dawn, but it appears everyone was convinced it was from the film because Foy appears to be sitting in the famous Meadow from the film franchise (check out Renesmee’s Mom and Dad rolling around in it in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse here below). Hey, maybe that’s how she got the gig to begin with.

A new name has been cast in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, as announced by author Stephenie Meyer on The Twilight Saga Facebook page.

Meyer reveals that Mackenzie Foy has joined the cast of the two-part final movie. The 9-year-old actress will play the part of (SPOILER Warning?) Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan’s (Kristen Stewart) love-baby, Renesmee Cullen, a half-vampire/half-human member of the Olympic Coven. She’s also the imprintee of Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner)… whatever that might mean. You Twilight fans should all know what this stuff means.
