In a year featuring new movies from Wes Anderson, Christopher Nolan, Rian Johnson, Paul Thomas Anderson, Joss Whedon, John Hillcoat, David Cronenberg and Quentin Tarantino, there are some people whose most anticipated film of 2012 is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

Think about that for a minute.

Now that you’re thoroughly disgusted with the youth of the world we can move on to watching the first trailer for the final Twilight film. I say final, but rumors of franchise reboots, 3-D conversion re-releases, spin-offs focused on Jacob’s urge to leg-hump Renesmee, and the possibility that series author Stephenie Meyer may pen another sequel mean this beast will probably never die.

Breaking Dawn – Part 2 picks up the action with Bella (Kristen Stewart) having been turned into a vampire by Edward (Robert Pattinson) in order to save her life. She thrives on her new powers, and the happy couple watch in joy as their daughter Renesmee grows at an alarming rate. Just try to imagine clothes shopping for this kid… you buy her a Hunger Games t-shirt only to see her outgrow it by the time you return from the mall. It’s hard to be a vampire! More pressing than wardrobe issues though is the news that the mod vampires in Italy, the Volturi, have declared the child an abomination that must be destroyed. I haven’t read the books, but I can only hope that the ensuing epic battle will be Neville Longbottom’s chance to shine.

Check out the trailer below courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.

It feels pointless to criticize ongoing plot holes and ineptitude five movies in, but can someone explain why an immortal baby is cause for war? The Volturi are concerned it could expose the existence of vampires to the world, but if they’re that worried about being unnoticed maybe they shouldn’t traipse around the globe in elaborate robes and marching band costumes having noisy battles in empty fields. Just a thought.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 opens November 16th.
