Earlier this week, the first photo from Breaking Dawn Part 2 hit the Internet. And it may have been a close-up of Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen, but let's be honest: It wasn't really all that revealing.

Fortunately, a new image is here to rectify that.

Taken from a feature on the special DVD handed out last month during a Twilight Saga-related event at Target, we've now gotten our first glimpse at Bella Swan as a vampire. Check it out below:

Bella as a Vampire

"It's strange," the red-eyed, pale-skinned Bella tells her husband in the clip from which this shot is taken. "Physically I feel like I could demolish a tank. Mentally I feel just drained."

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 hits theaters on November 16, 2012. Check out a sneak peek at the final installment now!

You really need to pick up a copy of the special edition Breaking Dawn DVD. Or you really need to keep checking in to THG every few days. Either option works.

As previously published, fans of The Twilight Saga can get their first look at Breaking Dawn Part 2 via a featurette included on that DVD - but that's not all.

The disc also includes a behind-the-scenes look at Edward and Bella's wedding, replete with never-before-seen footage and messages from various actors and actresses, all in character. So raise a glass to the happy newlyweds now and relive the ceremony of the century now:

In case you somehow needed another reason to get excited for the March 23 opening of The Hunger Games...

Sources confirm that the first trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 will debut in front of Katniss, Peeta and company in theaters across the country. It's a move that makes perfect business sense, as Lionsgate (distributor of The Hunger Games) acquired Summit Entertainment last month.

Meanwhile, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 hits DVD and Blu-ray tonight at midnight. Are you in line yet?!?

It may have been the worst reviewed of all chapters in The Twilight Saga, but Breaking Dawn: Part 1 has successfully sought revenge at the box office:

The film blew past $700 million in global box office haul this weekend and, with receipts not even counted yet in Japan and China, will undoubtedly soon be crowned the highest-grossing installment in the franchise.

New Moon grossed $709.8 million during its run.

This exciting news comes just a few weeks before Breaking Dawn is released on DVD (February 11!) and also coincides with talk that the franchise could extend beyond part 2, which hits theaters on November 18.

Would you want to see The Twilight Saga continue?

For at least one night next month, Target will be the most popular store on earth. And not simply because you can pick up school supplies, a new wardrobe, a basketball and a week's worth of groceries in its aisles.

The chain has reached an agreement with Summit Entertainment to premiere the first clip from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.

The Twilight Saga is under fire once again.

A day after Star Trek actor George Takei called out the franchise for simply being "really, really bad," James Franco has penned a scathing critique of Breaking Dawn.

  • James Franco Photograph
  • Breaking Dawn Wedding Night!

In a column for The Paris Review, the Oscar nominee takes this film to task for its reliance on nearly-underage sex, writing:

The protagonists finally marry, having waited until the wise old age of eighteen, and since the book and the film dutifully show them being wed, they are then allowed to f-ck each others’ brains out. For a film that claims to be sexually responsible, the Twilight movies are awfully dependent on teenage sex to attract viewers.

The actors prance about like pieces of meat, their disturbingly developed bodies on full display; Taylor Lautner’s rippling teenage chest is just a little better than the child beauty-pageant stars at the end of Little Miss Sunshine.

Ouch! What say you, Twihards? If you're looking for a comeback, remember: there's always Franco's hosting debacle at the 2011 Academy Awards.

UPDATE: Oh, and here's the actor, now 35 years old, trying to pick up a teenager on Instagram in 2014. Because obviously that happened ...

Breaking Dawn is showing no signs of breaking down at the box office.

For the third consecutive weekend, this installment of the Twilight Saga earned more money than any other film, adding $16.9 million to its growing tally on Friday and Saturday.

Breaking Dawn actually trails past franchise editions at this point in its run, as it's earned 247.3 million domestic dollars in 17 days.  By comparison, New Moon had brought in $255.4 million at this juncture, while Eclipse had collected $255.8 million.

Is there any doubt, however, that next November's Breaking Dawn Part 2 will own all Twilight records in the end?

Here is a look at the top five box office results from the weekend:

  1. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1: $16.9 mil
  2. The Muppets: $11.2 mil
  3. Hugo: $7.6 mil
