OK, Twi-hards. Brace yourselves. Christmas just came early. And by Christmas, we mean Nov. 16, 2012.
Thanks to an exclusive in-store sneak peek of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2 (and some enterprising, videocam-equipped fans), the world has caught its initial look at Kristen Stewart, vampire, as the first images of Bella Swan's transformation into one of the sparkly undead have leaked out.
Um, spoiler alert?
Video has made its way online of a special preview of the fifth and final film in Stephenie Meyers' series, which ran in Target stores as part of the retailers' midnight DVD release party for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1.
The images showed Bella in full vamp mode, with red eyes and even paler skin (hard as that may be to fathom), having caught a case of the immortals from hubby Robert Pattinson Edward Cullen at the end of the last film.
"It's strange," Bella says in the clip. "Physically I feel like I could demolish a tank. Mentally I feel just drained."
No doubt so, too, will Twi-hards after catching a glimpse of these images.
And that they just so happened to make their way online today, hours ahead of The Hunger Games' much-heralded premiere? We'll chalk this attempt at thunder-stealing up to a coincidence. For now, anyway.
