June 30 can’t come quickly enough for fans of the Twilight movie franchise — that’s when Eclipse is released in theaters, and the first time a Twilight movie debuts in the busy summer movie season. The third book in Stephenie Meyer‘s romantic vampire book series is more action-packed than the first two, but the first movie trailer for Eclipse puts the emphasis on the love triangle between Bella (Kirsten Stewart), vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson) and werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner). In Eclipse, directed by David Slade (30 Days of Night), Bella weighs becoming a bloodsucker and remaining with Edward forever or staying human and being with Jacob, while rivals Edward and Jacob engage in a tenuous truce and rally the troops when the redheaded vampire Victoria (played by Bryce Dallas Howard) comes looking for vengeance against Bella. (For those who missed the last Twilight film, New Moon — or if you can’t wait to see it again — it arrives on DVD and Blu-ray in stores next Saturday, March 20.) What do you think of the first look audiences have had of Eclipse? Comment and let us know your thoughts.
