The latest in the Twilight Saga series, Breaking Dawn: Part 1, hits theaters November 18. Check out two new TV spots below. In this film continuation of Stephenie Meyer's vampire/human romance, Bella and Edward get married, enjoy a romantic honeymoon in Rio, and give birth to a very strange child. We can hear the teenagers screaming already.

Here's our Comic-Con coverage of the Breaking Dawn press conference and our interview with director Bill Condon. The Dreamgirls director had been eager to direct a horror movie, and landed the finale to this mother of all horror epics, which he and Summit agreed to break into two parts, Harry Potter-style. “It’s all third act, which does make it easy,” he says, “and scary too, there are some pretty crazy things.” The film earned a PG-13 rating, even with some nudity in a scene where Bella and Edward have sex for the first time, and a bloody scene when Bella gives birth to their baby.

Condon says he went for grown-up emotion here—aimed squarely at Twilight‘s female audience. If Catherine Hardwicke was able to channel the teen POV in the first film, Condon is revealing the couple as adults: falling in love, getting married, living together, having a child, “set against a big mass-market studio movie,” he says.

But, befitting a vampire/human liaison, they don’t have your ordinary kid; they have no idea what is growing super-fast inside Bella, eating away at her—and in the next installment, Bella becomes a vampire. Condon is relieved that he and Summit finally decided not to shoot the final film in 3-D. In the arena of dramatic intense emotion, 2-D works best, he says.

At the Hall H panel, the cast praised Condon’s handling of the birth scene, which many readers of the book have wondered how it would be done. It’s where the entire series was heading, and puts Bella and Edward into a situation beyond their control. Pattinson talked about how much he enjoyed playing more human emotions, like bonding with a baby, which requires “improvising,” he said.

One Summit exec who’s seen the film says she cried five times, especially during Bella and Edward’s wedding; the footage of their moonlit honeymoon in Rio is delightful, as Bella and Edward decide to take a nude swim.
