Thoughts on the Breaking Dawn Teaser Poster
Hmmm, is that red glow in the sky supposed to hint at all the red that will be spouting from Bella’s belly in the horrific birth scene?
Are the pointy trees supposed to be phallic? Is Bella the empty, blank slate sky being encroached upon (penetrated) by a phallic tree pack? (I think Edward is the tree on the far right.)
Is it lighter at the bottom and darker at the top to echo the threatening approach of the Volturi?
Is it somehow a reminder to embrace abstinence? Ie, with no hot werewolves, vampires, or humans, the poster gives us nothing to lust after…
I think it’s a safe image. A rather blank one. A hallmark card type of thing. It’s lazy and uninspired. It’s teasing us by giving us nothing – kind of like Edward in all those premarital abstinence porn scenes. At least he gave some kisses though. This poster gives squat.
Judging by the comment thread at The Twilight Lexicon, many others share my disappointment.
