Bite Into the ‘New Moon’ Trailer

In recent days Twilighters have been treated to the release of the official “New Moon” movie poster, with the love triangle between Edward, Bella, and Jacob front and center, followed by a few squeal-worthy production stills showing pivotal “New Moon” scenes. Then the news dropped that the cast of “New Moon” would be presenting exclusive footage from the “Twilight” sequel at the MTV Movie Awards and just about made fans from all over the world faint with sheer anticipation. So the moment we’ve been lusting after for days finally arrived as Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner unveiled the first trailer for “New Moon” during the live telecast of the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday.

The sneak peek shows tortured lovers Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) reaching a crossroad in their tumultuous relationship when Bella’s birthday party at the Cullen home nearly causes Jasper to forgo his “vegetarianism.” The incident makes Edward realize that as long as Bella is a part of his life, she will always be in danger, so he makes the heart-wrenching decision to leave her because he loves her too much to see her hurt.

With Bella’s leading man out of the picture, in steps Jacob (Taylor Lautner) to be her protector. That young, long-haired boy we remember from “Twilight” has been transformed into quite the hunk and I’m sure girls everywhere are still swooning after getting a good glimpse of his shirtless, ripped upper body. It’s hard to believe that Taylor’s only 17, but the real surprise came when Jacob transitioned into a werewolf.

Through the trailer, I think Taylor has once and for all proven that he’s the perfect actor to portray human Jacob (I’m slowly shifting my allegiances from Team Edward to Team Jacob) and although the CGI werewolf seems more cute and cuddly than scary and menacing (and not at all what I expected), the trailer still completely delivered and met all my expectations. I can’t wait to see more of Jacob! Consider me impressed.

What do you think? Is “New Moon” going to be better than “Twilight”? Are you excited and hungry for more or disappointingly underwhelmed?
