Stars Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser and Peter Facinelli may have done the honors at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, presenting the final trailer for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," but Kristen Stewart's Bella Swan-Cullen is arguably the biggest butt-kicker in this clip.
The 90-second teaser opens much like the one that preceded it, with a newly turned Bella sprinting through the forests of Forks. But what we didn't see before was the bloodsucker bagging herself a big cat, in grand fashion. Later on, Bella's new-found strength is utilized in a WWE-worthy maneuver in which Edward lifts and swings her into a bunch of waiting baddies.
The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards just got even sparkly-er.
As if performances by One Direction, Taylor Swift and Pink weren't enough, you can look forward to sinking your teeth into an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek at the final trailer for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," when you tune in tomorrow night.
As Sadie from "Awkward" would say: "You're welcome."
And because we understand there's nothing quite like instant gratification, we've assembled a teeny, tiny taste of the clip to come in the video above. Be sure to press play for a first look at the first look. Got it?
Show of hands: Who here appreciates a fine-looking man in a finely woven, snuggly sweater? Everyone? OK! Do we have something for you then! For today's Fall Movie Preview Week feature, we've nabbed not one but two EXCLUSIVE images from "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," both featuring the always alluring Robert Pattinson.
We must, however, give the advantage to this first photo in which the 26-year-old actor is handsomely clad in chunky knitwear, on his way to ask the Denali coven to aid his cause against the Volturi. I mean, yummmmmy, right?
As "The Twilight Saga" draws to an end this November (Oh my Edward!), there will no doubt be plenty of opportunities for the cast to look back on the last five years of their vampire romance—an exercise star Robert Pattinson emphasized will be sweet, not sour.
"It's an amazing experience," he said during our recent MTV First: Robert Pattinson. "It's a huge chunk of my life, and the end of the movie, the last few scenes, kind of look back at the whole series. It's so sweet."
Of course, such reminiscing can make one feel a wee bit aged—even if you are an immortal vampire.
Heads up, "Twilight" enthusiasts: We're exactly three months away from the release of the very last film in everyone's favorite supernatural romance! And if you need something to gaze at while you wait, you'll be delighted to know that the Cullen family photo album just got a little bigger, with eight brand new "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" stills now up in our gallery of images from the upcoming film. And for the baby-crazy fans who've been hoping for a better look at Renesmee in action, this latest set hits the jackpot: The rapidly growing daughter of Edward and Bella is in three of the new pics (including one Hallmark-esque shot that shows her in a Christmas-time interaction with the smitten Jacob. Aww.)
Also included in the new stills: a snuggly portrait of Mr. and Mrs. Cullen in that ubiquitous field of purple flowers (but shouldn't they both be a little more sparkly?); a group photo featuring six of the film's various vampires, with Carlisle front and center, in which everyone looks a little perturbed; and, our favorite, a smoking-hot glamour shot of the bloodthirsty Bella sporting a confident smolder and her favorite deer-killing cocktail dress. Looking good, girlfriend!
Remember when photos came out that showed Kristen Stewart not-so-secretly smooching "Snow White and the Hunstman" director Rupert Sanders, and both parties issued apologies confirming the dalliance, and the internet lost its freakin' mind? Yes! So do we! (It was just two weeks ago, after all.) And while voices of reason in reaction to the "cheating scandal" have been hard to come by, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" director Bill Condon has taken to the pages of Entertainment Weekly to offer some much-needed perspective to freaked-out fans alongside the magazine's sneak peek at the upcoming movie. So gather round, everyone, and listen to the wise, wise words of Uncle Bill as he addresses concerns that Kristen and Rob's on-the-rocks real-life relationship might ruin the fun of promoting the last film in "The Twilight Saga."
"The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it’s not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that," he said. "Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the 'Twilight' movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon. Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them."
Warning: This fresh image from the set of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" may cause uncontrollable awwwing and an incurable case of the warm fuzzies. Proceed with caution.
Entertainment Weekly has a brand-new look at our favorite vampire-human hybrid, Renesmee (played by Mackenzie Foy), and her newly turned mama, Bella (played by Kristen Stewart) sharing a special moment. The two are examining the Christmas present Bella gives Renesmee: a golden locket with a family picture inside and the inscription Plus que ma propre vie, which translates from the French as "More than my own life." It's a keepsake meant to remind Renesmee of her parents after the Volturi prevail. Except, you know, spoiler alert: they don't.
It's a while yet before we'll be feasting our hungry eyes on the final film in "The Twilight Saga," but there's plenty of good stuff to gaze upon in the meantime—not least the just-updated gallery of character art for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2." The roster had already been nicely filled out with the Cullens-at-large and a few good random vamps (including the obscure, far-flung clan members who'll be making their first and last appearance in the upcoming film), but the latest additions are the folks who need no introduction: Edward, Bella and Jacob!
The big three are officially in the big online book of "Breaking Dawn" glamour shots, with Edward looking typically emo and tortured, Bella looking mighty fine in her new undead state...and Jacob looking maybe just a little out-of-place now that he's the only warm-bodied guy in a gallery full of bloodsuckers. (Compared to the alabaster skin and glowing eyeballs of the vampire cast, his character shot looks like a yearbook photo.) And since you'll be expected to know the names of every single one of these folks—and yes, we are going to quiz you—now might be a good time to click through to the full suite of photos and start coming up with mnemonic devices to jog your memory come November.

As excited as we are to finally see Bella in all her vampirific glory when "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2" comes to theaters, we do have that little nagging sadness in the back of our mind that this will also be our final "Twilight" film with the cast we've grown to love. It seems that emotion brought about by "the end" didn't miss the cast either.
At the Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con party, MTV News talked to Billy Burke, who plays Bella's dad, Charlie Swan, and asked him about a scene in the final film where vampire Bella first interacts with her dad in her transformed state. Billy took the time to reflect on what he was feeling during the shoot with Kristen Stewart and their last moments working together.
"Well, first of all, Kristen and I, we've had a great time throughout the entire experience, and that scene in particular, the last episode of the entire saga, was kind of emotional for everybody, and surprisingly so," Billy said. "Nobody really expected that, but as we were doing it, it kind of hits you."

If you've been following along with our extensive Comic-Con coverage, you know that Christmas came early for "Twilight" fans once again at this year's Con and that those who made the pilgrimage to San Diego were rewarded with appearances by their favorite vampires—but the actors who play our favorite bloodsuckers felt just as grateful as their acolytes.
When MTV News caught up with the cast of "Breaking Dawn: Part 2" for their fourth and final year at Comic-Con (as a group, at least), there was no question that they are going to miss those passionate, screaming fans who have been following the "Twilight Saga" since day one.
"Being able to share with these guys, the fans, [they] are an ever-present, motivating, reassuring thing," Kristen Stewart said. "It's really nice, but when they're actually physically in front of you, if you can get over the blast of energy that's thrown at you, it's the most amazing shared energy thing. They're just as invested in it as I am, and to see that is mind-blowing. I love it."
