Bella "was born to be a vampire. " Stewart quite literally vamps it up in the new teaser, getting gussied up in that gorgeous-vampire sort of makeup of the "Saga" and that bloodthirsty-red contact lens treatment. And yes, she kind of dazzles us too. Lautner's Jacob Black is eating his words about Bella's transformation. "I didn't expect you to seem so -- you?" Those hoping that Bella would shed the T-shirt, thermals and tousled hairdo will have to keep hoping.

There's no way to put a pretty frame around this picture. After Catherine Hardwicke delivered an immensely lucrative franchise starter with "Twilight," a film that will put Summit Entertainment on the map, wiping away all the company's other losses and missteps, she was rewarded by being pushed aside, with Summit making it clear over this past weekend that it's beginning work on a "Twilight" sequel without her.
