The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 Official Trailer

And it finally comes to an end. The much awaited Final installment of the Twilight Saga series will be released this coming November. Bella as what the trailer shows, is now a vampire.
She finds herself enjoying her new life and abilities. However, the vampire Irina misidentifies Renesmee as an "immortal child", a child who has been turned into a vampire, and because immortal children are uncontrollable, creating them has been outlawed by the Volturi. After Irina presents her allegation to the Volturi, they plan to destroy Renesmee and the Cullens. In an attempt to survive, the Cullens gather other vampire clans from around the world to stand as witnesses and prove to the Volturi that Renesmee is not an immortal child.
Check the trailer below

No offense, but I am hoping that this will put an end to the Vampire era. I am nothing against the Twilight series but the concept of the Vampire thing and alike are pretty much overused today and I'm getting tired of it. Nevertheless, I'm sure the final installment will be a big blast.
