Grab ahold of something, "Twilight" lovers, because you're about to have the best thirteen seconds of your life! ...That is, at least until tomorrow morning when the full teaser trailer for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2" hits the interwebs. But there's still, like, a lot of hours between now and then! So for now, you should relax and enjoy this preview glimpse of the early teaser for the final chapter of the "Twilight" saga that we've all been waiting for — a sneak peek AT the sneak peek, if you will.
So, what's in store for audiences in this long-awaited tease? For one, it looks like the Vampire Bella thing is officially old hat; after the super-early teaser that showed her transformation in bits and pieces (including that super-creepy between-the-trees shot of the newly minted ladyvamp stalking an unfortunate deer), the buzz has moved on to plot! And although there's gotta be more to it, this mini-glimpse seems to sum up the problem at hand nicely: the baby is birthed, the Volturi are coming, and hoo boy, they are cheesed.
Aww, look! It's a teeny-tiny "Twilight" reunion on Catherine Hardwicke's new thriller-in-production, "Plush."
Variety is reporting that Cam Gigandet, who played a villainous vampire in the very first "Twilight" film, is officially on board for the male lead in this new supernatural suspense movie. Cam will play opposite Emily Browning, portraying a psychic psychologist who sees into his patients' pasts in order to help them heal. (So, in other words, he's probably the only psychologist in the world who neither needs nor wants you to tell him more about How That Makes You Feel, right? You could just lie on the couch and let him dig around in your head! And even take a nap, probably!)
Not gonna lie: It's been a dry year for "Twilight" fans in 2012. With the last film in the franchise coming out this November, we've only gotten to see a sliver so far of Bella Swan's transformation from awkward teen to bloodlust beauty in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2" (via that teeny-tiny trailer that debuted during "The Hunger Games" opening weekend). And ever since, vampire-loving fans have been clamoring ever-louder for more sneaky peeking at the epic conclusion to their favorite saga. Which is why you might want to grab onto something and take a deep breath before we tell you that... (deep breath)... A BRAND NEW "BREAKING DAWN" TEASER TRAILER IS COMING OUT ON WEDNESDAY! Somebody hold us!
The trailer debuts at 8:30 a.m. on June 20, which truly savvy fans will have already recognized as the 111th special day of one Edward Cullen. Happy birthday, old man! And with so much action packed into this final chapter of the beloved saga, there are about a hundred things we're hoping to catch a glimpse of in this next look at the movie...and yes, 99 of them are named "Renesmee." Seriously, movie, it's time to show us the progeny! Bring on the baby vampire! Or if not that, then can we at least get a full-body shot of Bella as a full-fledged bloodsucker? The waiting is killing us.
Better fetch your bikini because there's a wave headed this way—the second wave of Teen Choice Awards nominations! And look! It's "Breaking Dawn" and "Snow White" riding high on their surf boards!
Both Kristen Stewart-starring films nabbed seven nominations. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" got looks in Choice Movie, Choice Movie Actor: Romance (Robert Pattinson), Choice Movie Actress: Romance (Kristen Stewart), Choice Movie Liplock (Kristen and Rob), Choice Movie Scene Stealer: Male (Kellan Lutz) and Choice Movie Scene Stealer: Female (Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed), while "SWATH" cinched nods in Choice Movie Hissy Fit (Charlize Theron), Choice Movie Villain, Choice Movie Breakout (Sam Claflin), Choice Summer Movie: Action, Choice Summer Movie Star: Male (Chris Hemsworth), Choice Summer Movie Star: Female (Kristen and Charlize). Of course, March's dystopian blockbuster, "The Hunger Games," wasn't ignored either, gobbling up five nominations.
If you've been dying to get an advance look at little Renesmee Cullen, the rapid-growing spawn of the newlywed Edward and Bella whose traumatic birth concluded the penultimate film in the series and who will finally (finally!) make her big appearance in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," then Entertainment Weekly has a little treat for you over on Facebook: a sneak-peeky family portrait of the Cullens, with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson keeping close parental watch on the mysterious daughter who's making her debut in the magazine this week! Just click the Like button, and then feast your eyes on the first media glimpse of Renesmee.
...And we do mean "glimpse." You can only see, like, one-sixteenth of the child in this photo—it's less a full-on portrait than it is some hair, an eyeball, and part of a leg. (Wait, is that her leg?)

Some things in life get old after the third or fourth time. Winning Best Movie at the MTV Movie Awards? Not so much.
Not too many people are in a position to comment on that feeling, of course. And not too many movie franchises achieve the "phenomenon" status of "The Twilight Saga" ('though "The Hunger Games" may be on its way!), which collected a fourth consecutive Movie of the Year Golden Popcorn on Sunday.
"It's always meaningful," Nikki Reed told MTV News backstage, as she laughed off the idea that it could ever get old.
"Twilight" faced perhaps its toughest challenger yet in the form of "The Hunger Games," whose box-office success surpassed every entry in the romantic vampires-and-werewolves series in terms of opening weekend gross and overall domestic numbers. The fan base for each franchise is fervent in its devotion, but the "Twilight" legions are the stuff of pop culture legend where the MTV Awards are concerned.
Is Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" smooch hot enough to cinch a Movie Awards Best Kiss four-peat? We'll have to wait until tomorrow (the agony! the ecstasy!) to find out if the pair can beat out competitors Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone ("Crazy, Stupid, Love"), Rupert Grint and Emma Watson ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2"), Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson ("The Hunger Games") and Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum ("The Vow"). And if the "Twilight" stars do indeed score another Golden Popcorn, there will be yet another question to address: Who will Kristen kiss?
You see, while the "Snow White and the Huntsman" star will be in attendance, the other pair of lips in this equation will, sadly, not be. When our friends at MTV UK caught up with the hunk at a junket for his upcoming "Cosmopolis," they got down to the bottom of KStew's quandry.
"I don't know," Rob said when asked if he'd be devastated if he and Kristen didn't win Best Kiss. "We didn't get nominated for anything else. I'm like, 'Grr.' I have to be in Toronto for 'Cosmopolis,' but I think Kristen is going so she's going to kiss herself if she wins."
We're psyched about all the stars who will be in attendance at the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday, but all that mega-wattage means producers had the tricky task of seating everyone in the audience of the Gibson Amphitheater. It's a job that many would consider quite daunting, but those in charge were up to the challenge.
Needless to say, "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart is going to be sitting front and center during the ceremony. Nearby will be the "Magic Mike" crew, who we assume will spend the show spontaneously grinding against every woman who walks by. (Let us dream, people!) And keep an eye out for Michael Fassbender and his two seats. MTV News' Jim Cantiello, who shows off the celebrity seating arrangements, has quite the theory as to who (or what) will be the "Shame" star's plus one.
The competition is stiff this year in the MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss category, but there's no performance anxiety for "Twilight" producer Wyck Godfrey! When we caught up with the man who's been responsible for heading things up behind the scenes on all four films in "The Twilight Saga"—including the most recent "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1"—he confessed to being all kinds of confident that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will be taking home the Golden Popcorn for the fourth consecutive year in a row. Why? Er, let's just say that the shattered furniture and shredded pillows that come later in the film might have something to do with it.
"The Best Kiss is when it's really about a prelude to sex," Wyck grinned. "Sometimes that takes it up a notch, and that could be what might get us over the hump."
...We see what you did there, sir. Over the hump, indeed! But really, the producer may be onto something when he says that the promise of post-kiss, bedroom-destroying, human-on-vampire nookie is what makes the "Breaking Dawn" wedding liplock extra-special—and exciting enough to come out ahead of even the steamy smooch in "The Vow."
Waiting for the final installment of the "Twilight" saga to hit theaters in November and reunite our fave celeb couple (Robsten, in case you couldn't figure it out) is no easy task. And though Stephenie Meyer isn't wasting time pining for vampire series past—the writer behind our favorite supernatural romance has moved on, this time to the big, exciting work of bringing her next book, "The Host," to the big screen—Stephenie admitted during our on-set visit that as thrilling as the new project is, she's also kinda missing the dynamic duo who brought Edward and Bella to life.
"It makes it a lot calmer," she laughed, when MTV News' Josh Horowitz asked if this movie felt strange or sad without Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson on board. "I do miss them though, it seems funny not to have Kristen here."
