A new trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 has landed online. Directed by Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters), the pic stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Anna Kendrick, Dakota Fanning, Ashley Greene, Michael Sheen and Kellan Lutz. In case you haven’t bothered keeping up, Breaking Dawn – Part 1 marks the penultimate installment in the franchise which is good news for fans and foes of the franchise alike.

As for the trailer? What can I possibly say about the Twilight franchise that its millions of fans haven’t heard and completely disregarded before? The acting is weak, the action looks cheesy, the writing is most likely contrived, blah, blah, blah, it’s going to make a ton of money. I had held out hope that Condon’s involvement would bring a touch of credibility to Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and while that may still be the case, I’m not seeing it in these 2:30. Check out the trailer for yourself after the jump. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 opens on November 18th.
