Brace yourself Twihards. Three clips from the third installment of the "Twilight" series have been released. "Eclipse" tells the continued story of the quiet and awkward Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), her vampire soul mate Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and her werewolf best friend Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) — who she may or may not be in love with.
"Eclipse" hits theaters June 30. Bella will be forced to choose between the two men she cares for most, Edward and Jacob. However, before she decides they’ll have to work together to save her from an army of vampires.
A Volturi scene was released earlier this month as an iTunes exclusive. Jane (Dakota Fanning) and her crew of vampires survey the vampire army. This scene is an especially special treat for all "Eclipse" fans since it did not appear in the book.
The clip opens on a Seattle rooftop with four Volturi members — the royalty of the vampire world — surveying the newborn vampires massacring the city streets. The vampire army was created by Victoria (Bryce Callas Howard), who made appearances in both "Twilight" and "New Moon," to destroy the Cullens and Bella.
"They’ve already drawn too much attention," Demetri (Charlie Bewley) says.
"So has our inaction," Felix (Daniel Cudmore) responds. "Other’s may begin to question the Volutri’s effectiveness. "
"Let them," Jane responds with an eerily impassive face and air of cruelty.
Felix breathes deeply, looking upset. "Maybe we should consult with Aro," he says, turning his back on the others.
Jane turns toward him a sickly, amused and intrigued look on her face. She then uses her power on Felix, which fans caught a glimpse of in "New Moon." Jane has the ability to make others feel pain with only a thought.
Jane incapacitates Felix. Demetri and Alec (Cameron Bright) watch as his body painfully contorts.
"Aro’s decisions are being watched," Jane says calmly. She is speaking of Alice Cullen’s (Ashley Greene) ability to see the future.
Jane releases Felix, and he collapses with a thud.
"Either we let them do what they were created for, or we end them," Jane says as she looks down on the vampire army attacking people in a dark alley lit by fires.
She sighs heavily. "Decisions. Decisions."
This 40 second clip gives viewers an intriguing sight of what to expect in "Eclipse" — more of the badass Volturi! Jane and her followers don’t disappoint. Dressed in their long black robes, their red eyes shining and faces emotionless, this crew of vampires is pleasantly disturbing.
A scene featuring Jacob, Edward and Bella was released on the Oprah show. Looks like Hollywood really spiced up this cherished book scene. Twihards who have read the series might feel their heart beating a little faster than it usually does as they remember this Edward-Jacob encounter. All of Edward’s cool, suave composure is gone only to be replaced by an edgy rage that is a bit overwhelming.
"Edward!" Bella says anxiously.
"If you ever," Edward growls, pushing Jacob, "touch her against her will again."
Jacob shoves Edward away, and Bella places on hand on Edward’s arm. "Edward," she tries to calm him again. "Don’t do this here," she begs.
"She’s not sure what she wants," Jacob says angrily. He steps closer to Edward.
"Don’t do this here!" Bella tries again.
"Let me give you a clue," Edward yells. "Wait for her to say the words."
"Fine," Jacob rasps. That arrogantly possessive look he has so often shines in his eyes. "And she will." Jacob breathes heavily, his body shaking. (Calm down, Jacob. You don’t want to go wolf boy.)
"Jacob just go, okay," Bella begs.
"Hey. Hey. Hey," Charlie’s (Billy Burke) voice sounds from off-screen. "Easy guys. Easy." He puts his hands between Edward and Jacob to separate them. "Let’s take it down a notch." He looks at Jacob. "Alright?" (Why do you like Jacob so much better than Edward, Charlie?)
"What’s going on?" Charlie asks.
Edward’s face in drained, pale. The devastatingly tortured look Pattinson is famous for wrenches at viewers’ hearts.
"I kissed Bella," Jacob responds.
A third "Eclipse" clip was released on the Ellen Degeneres Show. This breath-catching scene features Bella and Rosalie Hale (Nikki Reed).
"Rosalie." Bella walks up behind the blonde beauty, who is despondently looking off the Cullen’s deck. Bella’s hand is wrapped in a cast. Possibly from punching a certain werewolf?
"I don’t understand what I did to make you hate me so much," Bella says timidly, with a quiver in her voice.
Rosalie laughs lightly, shaking her head. "I don’t hate you."
Bella eyes dart about in confusion, but she smiles slightly.
"I don’t particularly like you butâ€¦" Rosalie continues. "Bella, I envy you." Emotion creeps into the vampire’s voice.
"What?" Bella asks in surprise. "That’s ridiculous."
"No, it’s not," Rosalie responds quickly. Tears fill her eyes. "You have a choice. I didn’t. None of us did, but you do, and you’re choosing wrong," Rosalie says, urging Bella to change her mind about being turned into a vampire.
That’s right Twihards — we get to see a glimpse of the good side of Rosalie! This scene is most likely the prelude to a series of flashbacks revealing how Rosalie was turned.
This goes without saying, but "Eclipse" is an instant hit. The film is packed with more unyielding friendship, heart-twisting love, beautifully choreographed action and classic jokes than the first two films. Furthermore, it looks like Twihards are finally going to see more of those lovable personalities they fell in love with in the books but missed in the first two films — Alice, Rosalie, Emmet (Kellan Lutz) and Jasper (Jackson Rathbone).
