In this week’s Breaking Dawn column over at, Laura from the Twilight Lexicon reviews the trailer from a fan’s perspective focusing on the elements of the trailer as they relate to the book.

After receiving our first tempting glimpse of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 footage back in June when the teaser debuted at the MTV Movie Awards, fans were elated to get the full trailer on September 13th, Bella Swan’s birthday.  So how does this trailer stack up against its predecessors?  Are there any elements that were left out, or were too many liberties with storyline taken?
