For the meantime, here’s Summit Entertainment’s plot summary of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse release last February 20, 2009:
As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death.

Official Trailer Recap/Review
The 90-second first look focuses primarily on the oh-so-tense love triangle between Edward (Robert Pattinson), Bella (Kristen Stewart), and Jacob (Taylor Lautner). We first see a breathtaking view of Forks, Washington, with its deep-green forest and expansive mountain range. Then we’re taken to Edward and Bella’s meadow meeting grounds, where the couple embraces amid blooming blue flowers as the dreamy vampire makes a lifelong pledge to his mortal lover.
Evil soon appears in the form of Dakota Fanning as the formidable Jane, who’s flanked by other Volturi members, warning that her coven leaders won’t be happy to learn that Bella is still human and that they “don’t give second chances.”
Bella would be more than happy to oblige the Volturi’s wishes, but in the next scene, Edward reminds her that becoming a vampire means suffering painful consequences, such as outliving the people she loves. Then, we see Bella with her father and later in Florida hugging her mother.
In swoops Bella’s best friend, the hunky Jacob, who reminds her that she doesn’t need to change to be with him, confesses that he’s in love with her, and begs her to choose him over Edward. Oh-em-Jacob! Taylor is totally swoon-worthy in this moment.
The words “It All Begins With a Choice” flash, and though readers of the novels already know who Bella will ultimately choose, it’s hard not to get excited over the debate of whether she’ll pick the vampire or the werewolf.
As if Edward didn’t feel bad enough for constantly placing Bella in harm’s way, Jacob presses him to consider the idea that perhaps Bella might be happier and safer with him. As he’s saying this to Edward, we see Bella watching the sunset, perhaps also contemplating to herself if Jacob really is the better choice.
