The many thousands of people who flocked to see The Hunger Games this weekend were treated to something just as highly anticipated before the film debuted: the first teaser trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2.
The fifth and final installment in the Twilight film series won't hit theaters until Nov. 16. And while the 50-second-long video probably won't sate Twihards' appetite for footage, it does offer a good payoff after Breaking Dawn -- Part 1's cliffhanger ending. Watch the trailer below!
In Breaking Dawn -- Part 2, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is finally a vampire. We saw her get turned at the end of Part 1 and wake up with the blood-red eyes of a vampire, but now we get to finally see her in action... sort of.
This teaser shows flashes of Bella, now a predator, chasing after an unsuspecting deer in the woods. Oh, the metaphorical imagery! This scene is intercut with moments between Bella and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and Bella and her new husband Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). And while Edward won Bella's hand in marriage, it's Jacob who wins the battle of the less cheesy line in the trailer (his "I didn't expect you to seem so... you" to Edward's "We're the same temperature now").
It will be interesting to see what angle a follow-up teaser takes on the source material. The big reveal in Part 2 is definitely Bella as a vampire, but the plot of the movie doesn't dwell too long on her transition. Instead, Part 2 deals with the rapid growth of Bella and Edward's daughter Renesmee and the repercussions of having a half-human, half-vampire baby. Many new characters are introduced as well, so hopefully we'll see some of those plotlines come into play in the next trailer.
