Poster for BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 looks like something from fakecriterions.tumblr.com

With the simple addition of that iconic C in the upper right corner and label in the bottom left, the first teaser poster for THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN - PART 1 looks like something you might see pop up on fakecriterions.tumblr.com. That's not necessarily a bad thing though, as I like this poster 100 times more than any others from the saga, which have routinely been the Hollywood standard of floating busts (typically shirtless) with some woodsy scenery in the background, all tinted with a warm, orangey tone. It was beginning to become difficult to tell the posters apart from sensual ads for cargo shorts or some type of werewolf cologne.

But with new, more minimalist designs comes a new, more artsy director in Bill Condon, who directed both PART 1 & PART 2. Condon's resume is impressive and includes KINSEY, DREAMGIRLS, GODS AND MONSTERS, not to mention an Oscar for that last one. Not exactly the type of guy you'd expect to end up behind the camera of a TWILIGHT film, which is exactly the reason the two-part conclusion may end the series on a high note.

Guess we shall see come November 18th of this year with BREAKING DAWN - PART 1 followed by PART 2 a year later on November 16th. Check out the poster after the break, along with the Gordon and the Whale exclusive Criterion edition of the poster.
