It's here. The moment we've been eagerly waiting for as much a year. The moment that meant that we couldn't go to sleep last night, for all the butterflies doing somersaults in our tummies. The moment that caused us to press the 'refresh' button 783 times in a minute, for the last 180 minutes. Yes, the latest, and presumably final, trailer for "Twilight: Breaking Dawn -- Part One" is here, debuting tonight over at Yahoo. And the good news is, it displays the same wit, invention and razor-sharp comic timing that made the three previous films such laugh riots.

It's here. The moment we've been eagerly waiting for as much a year. The moment that meant that we couldn't go to sleep last night, for all the butterflies doing somersaults in our tummies. The moment that caused us to press the 'refresh' button 783 times in a minute, for the last 180 minutes. Yes, the latest, and presumably final, trailer for "Twilight: Breaking Dawn -- Part One" is here, debuting tonight over at Yahoo. And the good news is, it displays the same wit, invention and razor-sharp comic timing that made the three previous films such laugh riots.

Somehow, the series have never been able to make any headway into the Best Comedy/Musical category at the Golden Globes, thanks to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's total bias against vampires, and their general lack of sense of humor. But if Judd Apatow thought that he had the award sewn up for "Bridesmaids" this year, he was sadly mistaken; from the two and a half hysterical minutes here, Summit have upped their game (thanks to bringing on board director Bill Condon, helmer of the hilarious "Kinsey"), making previous entries in the series look like somber dramas.

Smile! As Edward fucks the feathers out of pillows, and a baby into Bella! Chuckle! At Kristen Stewart's definitely-intentionally-funny make-up! Laugh! As Michael Sheen (in another rib-tickling cameo) throws some girl into a pit, or something! Guffaw! At Taylor Lautner's sharp, incisive parody of a man who couldn't give a convincing line reading if his life depended on it! And Howl! At the gross-out gag of the year, as Bella gets vampire placenta all over that nice new carpet.

Obviously, we're still a few months off seeing the film, but we're confident in saying that Ernst Lubitsch and Preston Sturges would be be proud at the level of hilarity on offer here. Our only concern; if they can keep it up for "Breaking Dawn -- Part Two: When Nature Calls." We'll find out when it hits theaters on November 18th; watch the trailer below, or in HD over at Yahoo.
