Conclusion to popular modern vampire fable sure to pack out theaters

The conclusion to the modern vampire saga, "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II" won't officially hit theaters until November, but the legions of rabid fans are fixing to line up this Monday, October 1 for pre-sale tickets. Fans of the romantic fantasy franchise were treated to a new 84-second trailer on the MTV Video Music Awards show.

The conclusion to the series 'Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part II' comes almost a full year after the last installment, a bit of a stretch for die-hard fans of the series.

LOS ANGEELS, CA (Catholic Online) - "We want to thank all our fans," series star Robert Pattinson told the series' fans - dubbed by some as "twihards," when he joined Taylor Lautner and other co-stars on stage.

Kristen Stewart, the series' female lead is no longer together with Pattinson off screen, the romance between Stewart's newly turned vampire Bella and her equally undead husband takes center stage in the trailer.

"I've had a bad habit of underestimating you," Edward Cullen says in the trailer as viewers are treated to a scene of a leaping Bella taking down a mountain lion. "Every obstacle, I'd think you couldn't overcome it and you just did."

In the latest installment, Volturi, the vampire coven led by Michael Sheen's Aro, vow to wipe out our heroes because they have birthed precocious Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy).

Judging by the previously unseen footage that's woven into the new trailer, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" looks to be an action-packed finale to the franchise based on Stephanie Meyer's book series.

Pattinson in the trailer receives an "Avengers"-like moment, leaping into the air and landing on the ice in an Iron Man like crouch.

"I thought we'd be safe forever, but forever isn't as long as I'd hoped," a solemn Bella intones.

"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" opens nationwide November 16th. When Summit revealed that "Breaking Dawn" would be split into two films - with the first film's release date set for November, there was much speculation that the final chapter would drop the following summer. This news puts the second film out almost a full year after Part 1, no doubt creating an excruciating waiting period for the film franchise's extremely dedicated fans. It's generally agreed the company wanted the final installment to go out with competition from the usual summer blockbusters.
