Breaking Dawn 2 Hits Japan; Kristen Stewart Still Loved! (watch)

Whatever happens between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, they’ll always have Japan. Studio Summit Entertainment has released a “Breaking Dawn” trailer there, where Twilight mania is still strong.

The trailer will be familiar to most Twihard fans. It’s basically the same as a domestic trailer released earlier this year. But the Japanese trailer demonstrates that the marketing campaign is in full swing.

There are also some minor differences with the American version. Check it out below and see if you can spot them. Summit also released some new screen stills, featuring Rob, Kristen, Taylor Lautner and Renesmee, played by Mackenzie Foy.

Rob and Kristen, off-screen sweethearts as well as on-screen as Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, are officially on the rocks, if not over following Stewart’s scandalous affair with married Director Rupert Sanders.

But their “Twilight” romance lives on, and will be played out one more time when “Breaking Dawn, Part 2,” hits theaters in November. If Rob and Kristen end their relationship, the movie will be bitter-sweet.

RobSten fans largely bought into the hype about their “true love” off-screen and have reacted bitterly to the scandal. But in Japan, fans are far more forgiving and their love affair with Rob and Kristen is still going strong.

“Breaking Dawn Part 1,” which hit theaters last year, grossed more than $750 million worldwide, with $423.8 million, or 60 percent of the take, coming from international markets, according to box office mojo. In Japan, with a population of 127 million people, the film grossed $3.5 million.
