New 'Eclipse' trailer hits the web

We’re down to a little more than two months until the third installment of the "Twilight" saga hits theaters, and Summit Entertainment is spoon-feeding bits of "Eclipse" to ease the waiting time.

To accompany the first trailer for “Eclipse,” the production company tweeted earlier this week that Twihards should watch out for a second trailer to hit the Web, and it finally has - on Oprah.com.

Some have hoped that this trailer would include the action that the third book is known for – new murderous, rampaging vampires plus a bloody ending – and it looks like we finally get that.

To accompany the long stares in a flower-filled meadow that we witnessed in an earlier trailer, the latest "Eclipse" teaser offers more violent sequences depicting that new army of bloodsuckers (the carnivorous kind), wolves going to battle and snippets of Edward's battle with Victoria (who was portrayed by Rachelle Lefevre, the actress who played her in the first two films before she was replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard).

What do you think of the new "Eclipse" trailer? Are there any crucial plot points you wish would've made it in?

    Alright, alright. Let's get some things cleared up:
    1) THIS IS FICTION! Just like with any other novel that comes up, this is purely fictional. There is some truth (like Forks, WA...that's about all) but overall, there isn't much to like. Stephanie Myers has a writing style, but much to the dismay of many readers (like myself), her lack of description and rushing of events through the book make it seem difficult to comprehend.
    2 For the Twi-Hards and Twi-geeks, get over it. Although you will still be obsessed with it when the movies are long and gone, you'll still be talking about it. Please...keep it to yourself. There are SO many of us out there who just like the books for entertainment only and are extremely annoyed when we hear "TEAM JACOB" or "TEAM EDWARD" or even "TEAM BELLA". Please...please just knock it off.
    3) In the Millenial Generation (from 1978 to 2000), we've been dealing with different series of books. More than likely, people will say the "Twilight" saga due to the fact that it's all over the place. What about last summer, when the last Harry Potter book came out? People were flocking to the stores, trying to buy it. Our generation is being raised on fantasy literature that is forcing young children to believe in something that doesn't exist. Vampires don't sparkle, people don't turn into wolves on anger and you don't have a choice between them.

    My wife and daughters read the Twilight books as well as the Sookie Stackhouse books, and they're all three of the opinion that Steph Meyer ripped off Charlaine Harris something awful. They made me sit through the movies at home, and I thought I'd develop a tumor from the experience.

    When the first trailer came out, i was bummed b/c it about the whole "choice" theme...but she kinda already chose in New Moon...for me the whole "newborn" theme was the big deal...so when I saw this new trailer, I was not disappointed. I got chills and it definitely got me excited again about the movie.

    As far as the people saying that the Twilight Saga doesn't match up to other Vampire movies...who cares. Why can't new movies be made for entertainment...why does it have to be better or worse? Why can't it just be entertaining and take your imagination for a quick little journey away from the daily grind and woes of the economy?

    Yeah, us Twihards can be annoying w/ our constant criticizing and our excitement but the comments are usually made to people w/ similar feelings. Like others have mentioned before, if you don't like the Twilight Saga, why are you wasting your time and energy reading and/or responding. I personally don't read stories I have no interest in, what's the point? Just go about your business and join an Anne Rice chat forum and bash us on there...

    Remember girls a health relationship is based on him not killing you!

    No clue why these books are so popular. Their theme is basically 'shut up woman and make me a sandwich'. If a man had written them he could have been hung by the feminist groups, and rightfully so.

    That said I am looking forward to the fourth movie since it will show the world just how truely nuts Twilight is. I'm hoping Rob Zombie directs. Be right up his alley :p

    Awesome trailer, loved all the books and movies, however Breaking dawn did stretch it a bit with the speedy pregancy in my opinion, but it was still a good read.
    Rob P/Edward long stares, the intensity of his eyes make me believe in the love he feels for Kirsten/Bella, the drama with Jacob puts a great spin on the saga, yeah the wolves look great in the trailer and I loved how Taylor bulked up for new moon. Great body Jacob but I remain devotely Team Edward for life!!!

    "Most people hate the series, but then you have the feminine die-hard crowd that won't let it die. Specific groups of people keep this alive:

    Teenage girls

    Emo kids

    Lonely wives whose husbands aren't man enough to keep them remotely interested in them.

    Husbands in the closet who just need a little more edward to coax them out. and if you're a guy who actually read the books, there is no denying which team you fight for. I'll give you a hint: Richard Simmons is the captain of the team you're on.

    We're all pretty much sick of you emo-vampire loving fans out there that have zero taste."

    And you know what? I'm pretty sick of people hating on this series! Yes it's everywhere! Yes it seems to have taken over! Yes it's a mostly female fan-base! WHO CARES!! There's nothing wrong with letting the female population have something to fawn over and get excited about. For god's sake, how many times do we women go to the theater and have to sit through movies with the hot chick with big boobs that can't act, and is there purely for eye candy? There are so many different movies and series' geared toward men, so for crying out loud, let the females have something of their own.

    Personally I know these books and movies are pretty corny. Is it amazing literature? No. Are the movies Oscar worthy? Absolutely not. But there is something in them that resonates with different people and I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I love the books and the movies, and I also have very broad tastes, that I like to think, doesn't suck. I'll tell you, I'm getting pretty sick of being pigeonholed as a lonely woman that has no taste and no sense of reality just because I enjoy this saga.

    That being said, I think by far Eclipse looks to be the best in this series. I love that they are playing up the action in this and that Riley has more of a presence in the film. David Slade was exactly what this franchise needed.

    What I don't understand is if you read the first book and thought it sucked, why would you waste your time and money reading the others?
    Not all writers appeal to everyone. I did not like the Harry Potter thing, so I did not read the books or go to the movies. However, I did not comment negatively on either. Harry Potter was not my thing, if it was someone else's – good for them.

    If you don't like Twilight, don't read the books or go to the movies. Not rocket science.

    There was a scheduling conflict regarding the last actress to play Victoria. They were left with no other recourse but to recast. I'm sure that Bryce will do a good job as well. And to be fair, Victoria isn't "on screen" so very much that it's going to be a huge difference.

    Besides, the 60's survived the recasting of Darren on Bewitched!

    I'm always amazed at how people get mad when others who do not agree with them post their feelings about things...I wonder if they themselves sit by so quietly when they feel strongly about something; this I doubt. It is in our nature to speak out our beliefs, and its one of the liberties of living in the United States. Yet it seems like some would rather have all nay-sayers silenced. Sounds like a form of the same old issue we've had throughout the years, whether it was people decrying slavery, mass murder, etc. Just because something is popular (or not popular) does not mean either side should be silent; nor does it mean a the more popular side is right (nor the less popular). The best ideas come when people from different sides come together as one and share their ideas - not when the opposition is silenced.

    Just gotta put a comment down. The first 2 films were definitely not up to par for me. The trailer looks far better then the other 2 films. I'll probably go to see it but because of the fact that the others let me down I won't be expecting much from it other then eye-candy. I've read the books and..yes, Stephanie Meyer is like a child writing about some kind of fantasy but doesn't really know how to get it out. I don't know if it has to do with her religion or what that makes the books seem so childish but it was very hard to get thru them all. Even in the books there was barely any emotion between the characters, that's why I just can't stand Rob P, he seems to be able to have no emotion of any kind in both films. I'm so frustrated with this series, the books and the films. Stephanie Meyer had a great concept but not the ability to write something that could have really grabbed an audience other then teen grls.

    I am intoxicated with this series but I do, partially, agree with Dan. In my opinion, Stephanie Meyer isn't the most scholarly novelist but she managed to take her somewhat adolescent writing style and write an amazingly captivating story. I love the complete Twilight Saga. I'm very much looking forward to seeing how the book is depicted on the big screen just as I was with the first two novels.

Anyway, the trailer looks awesome other than the flashback of "Land of the Living Dead" kinda thing, however, the wolves look good and the actions looks good. Just hope it follows the book the way New Moon did. I'll see it no matter what because I'm a Twifan. I don't think anyone could butcher the books any more than Catherine Hardwicke did so whatever.

    There's absolutely NO love in the trailor. I can see why it wasn't liked in the testings. The fan base is female. There's no changing that. The films have a stigma attached to them and men don't want to become fans for appearing gay. Where exactly is the romance? There has to be some romance on both the Edward and Jacob front or where's the choice? She has to choose between two guys who are fighting the entire movie? That doesn't make the choice clear. The entire book is about the choice. It's not about Riley. He's a very, very minor part. Sure he's OK looking but the fact is he is a minor role and he's getting far too much attention.

    I saw the trailer today, it looks so awesome! I can't wait to see it. I am going to re-read Eclipse to refresh my memory prior to seeing the movie. The book was so good. I am just praying now that the new Director doesn't blow it making Breaking Dawn. I can't wait for that one too. Breaking Dawn had so much going on, I hope they keep it true to the book. Team Edward!
