'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2' trailer hits, and so does Bella

Here it is, the final trailer for the final Twilight movie forever. Well, probably forever, but as the supercharged, vamped-up Bell (Kristen Stewart) says in the trailer, forever isn't as long as you might hoped.

The trailer, which premiered during the MTV Video Music Awards last Thursday (you may have missed it considering the dismal ratings) is pretty non-stop vamp vs. vamp and werewolf action. The royal vampire clan the Volturi are on their way to take out Edward (Robert Pattinson) and new-vampire Bella's superkid Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy). As a result, the Cullen clan and Jacob's (Taylor Lautner) wolf pack assemble a team of vampires with powers to battle the threat.

So here's the thing, the action-packed trailer actually looks kind of fun, like something out of a Resident Evil or super hero flick. The shot of Bella flying to take out a cougar is a little cheesy - and Michael Sheen's delivery of "Oh, my" is meme worthy (I wonder how George Takei feels about having his catchphrase lifted like that) - but vampire asses do, indeed, look kicked.

Like Part 1, Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is again directed by Bill Condon, and this one is a departure from Stephenie Meyer's final book installment and features a newish ending.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 hits theaters Nov. 16. Will you be buying a ticket?
