The new owners of the Twilight franchise are taking advantage of the upcoming release of their other hot property, The Hunger Games, to engage in a little cross-promotion. Lionsgate has scheduled the teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Breaking Dawn - Part 2 to premiere before screenings of The Hunger Games next Friday, March 23. In the meantime, they've just released a first still from Part 2, which hits theaters November 16.
As excited as we are for the Twilight marketing machine to kick into gear, we were kind of hoping for more from this first pic. We see Edward lovingly looking down at his new vampire bride, though we can only gauge Bella by her new voluminous hairdo. But fear not, we have a much better look at Bella as a sexy vamp below, thanks to a slightly higher-res version of the sneak peek video that aired in Target stores during the midnight DVD launch for Breaking Dawn - Part 1.
Blood-hued eyes, flaming lips, auburn hair—Bella almost looks more alive than when she was a warm-blooded human.
