Part of the reason I’m such an avid movie buff is because of the fantastic artwork that was used to promote films back in the day. In many instances a film’s poster was more imaginative and inspired than the film it was marketing (right, Ice Pirates?) – but with such awesome poster art you wouldn’t dare pass up a chance to see the film. But this?
In the case of the cinematic Twilight franchise, it’s all so paint-by-numbers. There’s nothing about this artwork that promises anything beyond the dollops of angst that rendered the last three films stagnant bores. Or maybe the marketing folks behind Breaking Dawn know exactly what they’re doing. From a financial standpoint things certainly aren’t broke so there’s nothing to fix. But these are lazy pieces of artwork that really tell us nothing about the film – or why we should care.
Then again, with hordes of teenage girls itching to line up already, they probably don’t have to. Dig the posters below, and then keep scrolling. I’ve included a spectacularly unsettling piece of fan-made artwork as well which, had it been real, would’ve had me ready to settle in amongst the tweens for a midnight show this November.
Part 1 of Breaking Dawn is slated to be released in theatres on November 18, 2011. Part 2 will follow a year later on November 16, 2012.
The highly anticipated fourth installment of The Twilight Saga, directed by Academy Award® winner Bill Condon, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 reveals the mysteries of this romantic epic that has entranced millions.
In The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson), plus those they love, must deal with the chain of consequences brought on by a marriage, honeymoon, and the tumultuous birth of a child… which brings an unforeseen and shocking development for Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner).
