If you were planning to gear up for the release of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" with a marathon viewing of every single one of the prior "Twilight" movies in order... oh come on, yes you were, we all were, so don't even pretend okay?! But now, there are two exciting options for your pre-"Dawn" rewatch! You can either:
a. make it a girl's night in with your "Twilight" DVD collection, where you can hysterically sob your way through the films in relative privacy without embarrassment, or
b. enjoy a Summit-sponsored marathon of the saga in your local theater, where you can...also hysterically sob your way through the films without embarrassment, because everyone in the audience will be doing the exact same thing.
We served up your first taste of the final "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" trailer during last week's MTV Video Music Awards, and now Yahoo! Movies has an extended cut of the clip.
So what's new in this latest look? Well, to start, there's an expository scene in which Carlisle Cullen explains what an immortal child is and the consequences of creating one—a sequence that's intercut with a flashback of bloodsuckers of yore being punished for just such a crime. Next, in a voice over, Bella explains that the Cullen clan is beginning the search for other vampire allies "in the most remote corners of the world." Then we see Kate from the Denali coven use her electric powers on Garrett, who's a total smitten kitten.
And those are just a few of the differences we spotted. Check out the extended "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" trailer after the jump and tell us what you see!
Dawn broke in fantastic fashion at last night's MTV Video Music Awards when stars Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Jackson Rathbone, Peter Facinelli and Elizabeth Reaser presented the LAST TRAILER EVER for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2." And it was good. Real good.
Of course, it wasn't our first look at the concluding chapter of author Stephenie Meyer's vampire romance. An earlier clip debuted in June, giving us the teeniest taste of the big battle to come. But what additional morsels emerged in this latest look? Let's play a round of Spot the Differences! Winner gets a cougar corpse!
Bella Bags a Mountain Lion
The first "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" trailer gave plenty of play to Bella's brand-new vamp speed, showing her sprinting through the forests of Forks. In the new clip, we see just how much of a transformation the once-clumsy teen has undergone, as she flies through the air with the greatest of ease to take out her much-larger prey. Mmmmm, dinner!
Kristen Stewart took a "Twilight" timeout last night to support her other upcoming film, "On the Road," alongside co-stars Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst at the Toronto International Film Festival. It was her first public appearance since the cheating scandal, and the 22-year-old looked chic in a floral Zuhair Murad dress as she enthused about the premiere's robust turnout.
"Dude, I'm really happy that they're here for 'On the Road,' " she told MTV News. "I think most of them were fans before I had anything to do with it, which is why they're here anyways, so it's awesome."

Meanwhile, back in the states at the MTV Video Music Awards, Kristen's bloodsucking and shape-shifting cohorts (including Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Jackson Rathbone, Peter Facinelli and Elizabeth Reaser) were on hand to present the final trailer for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2." And after having gotten a sneak peek at the clip, our own Josh Horowitz had just one question for the starlet: What do you have against mountain lions?
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."
