5 Reasons We're Excited for 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1'

All right, Twihards. Not like you haven't already heard, but 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1' is coming out on Nov. 18, and we just finished covering the cast and crew's panel at Comic-Con, where they dished out the goods on one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. We're sure that there's a ton of stuff that you're eager to sink your teeth into, but from what we can glean from the first trailer and what we know about the new crew, we narrowed our list down to a handful.

Who knows what new stuff will be revealed by the end of the day's events in San Diego (here's our photo gallery from the 'Twilight' red carpet), but check out five things that already have us glittering with excitement:

1. Bill Condon Directs
These are the final 'Twilight' movies, and we're glad to see that Summit pulled out the big guns by getting Oscar-winning director Bill Condon to helm the two-part series finale. Much in the same way that David Yates added a degree of maturity and darkness to the last four 'Harry Potter' movies, we're hoping that Condon's involvement will do the same. Nothing against previous directors Catherine Hardwicke, David Slade and Chris Weitz, but this is a tall order and we've got our fingers crossed that he's the guy for the job.

2. The Wedding
Aren't you tired of human-on-human weddings? We sure are. Since some of us still haven't read the novels, we are champing at the bit to see what kind of shenanigans go down at the altar and whether or not Jacob shows up in wolf form to start biting guests left and right. No matter whose "team" you're on, this day has been a long time coming and we're quite happy for Bella and Edward to finally tie the knot by turning this into a full-fledged vampire love story.  

3. Vampire Sex
Have you ever crushed a headboard with your bare hands during sex? Neither have we, and we've totally tried. So, when that scene turned up in the teaser trailer, we couldn't help but wonder what other vulgar displays of passion are gonna go down on that honeymoon. Bet the cleaning crew was pissed when they saw that the next morning. (Leave a nice tip, Eddie.) 

4. Abs, Abs, Abs
That's right, ladies. You know what we're talkin' 'bout. No one does abs like teen wolves.  

5. The Soundtrack
We don't know how they do it, we can't even imagine how much it must have cost them, but the bigwigs at Summit Entertainment have gotten some pretty fantastic acts to contribute some outstanding tunes to these soundtracks over the years. From the Black Keys to Bon Iver, you can just go ahead and Google the track listings for yourselves because the list is just too damn epic to fit into one little paragraph. And now that Kristen Stewart is pulling to bring back Band of Horses for the 'Breaking Dawn, Part 1' soundtrack, we can't help but get pumped for what sounds like another winner for all us music lovers out there.
