The first teaser trailer for Summit Entertainment’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 has debuted online a few hours before it’s set to be officially unveiled at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards later tonight.

Directed by Bill Condon, Breaking Dawn – Part 1 stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Michael Sheen, Nikki Reed, Dakota Fanning, Anna Kendrick, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone, Billy Burke, and many more.

In the highly anticipated next chapter of the blockbuster The Twilight Saga, the newfound married bliss of Bella Swan (Stewart) and vampire Edward Cullen (Pattinson) is cut short when a series of betrayals and misfortunes threatens to destroy their world.

After their wedding, Bella and Edward travel to Rio de Janeiro for their honeymoon, where they finally give in to their passions. Bella soon discovers she is pregnant, and during a nearly fatal childbirth, Edward finally fulfills her wish to become immortal.

But the arrival of their remarkable daughter, Renesmee, sets in motion a perilous chain of events that pits the Cullens and their allies against the Volturi, the fearsome council of vampire leaders, setting the stage for an all-out battle.

The suspenseful and deeply romantic Breaking Dawn continues the epic tale of supernatural fantasy and passionate love that has made The Twilight Saga a worldwide phenomenon.

Breaking Dawn – Part 1 is the fourth instalment in the hugely successful Twilight Saga series, and will hit cinemas in the UK on November 18.
