Coming in the extended “New Moon” trailer

SPOILER ALERTS AHEAD … just fair, warning folks!

* Wondering what to expect in this Sunday’s NEW, extended trailer for The Twilight Saga: New Moon … well, wonder no more. Here’s what MTV has to say:

If the focus of the “New Moon” teaser trailer was on the breakup, and the focus of “Meet Jacob Black” was, obviously, to introduce a new werewolf Jacob, then the focus of this newest trailer is on what comes next. Most of the clip is set in Italy at the end of the film, when Bella is (spoiler!) trying to stop Edward from killing himself by turning himself over to the Volturi.

But there is much more to the trailer than just Alice’s shiny yellow Porsche. The element that will probably get the most people excited is the inclusion of Dakota Fanning as the evil vampire Jane (only briefly glimpsed in the last trailer), who has the power to create illusions of pain. The new trailer opens up with a shot of her in Volturi garb and then shows the rest of the Volturi guard before revealing Michael Sheen’s Aro — the head of the Volturi — snapping a poor human’s neck.

The trailer then hits lightly on Edward breaking up with Bella and the heartbreaking shot of her lying bereft on the forest floor. But it quickly moves on to Bella seeing a vision of Edward with his car at Forks High, and then we see Jacob comforting her after the fact. One of the locations the twosome are sitting at is the movie theater in the scene Mike Welch and Taylor Lautner fought so hard to keep in the film.

Director Chris Weitz showed how he kicked the CGI up to the next level by including clips of Bella trying to outrace visions of Edward on her motorcycle and a lot more of the cliff jump than was showed in “Meet Jacob Black.” It is almost a work of art as Bella is floating under the water and sees Edward hovering upside down next to her after her jump. When an arm comes to pull her out of the water, she reaches out to touch Edward, and the illusion gets muddled and washed away.

The rest of the trailer revolves around Alice telling Bella about Edward’s plan, Bella’s epic run to save him, hints of some abs as Edward prepares to walk shirtless into the sunlight and some shots of the Volturi looking ready to kill spliced with a full wolf pack transformation. Bella’s token line, “No, Edward, don’t!” is thrown in for good measure, and the trailer ends on a high note, with Jane stating, “This may hurt just a little.”

* A shorter version of the trailer is also being shown with Summit’s “Sorority Row,” out in theaters today. (The full version debuts on the VMAs exclusively.)

* The Lex has also tracked down a video that details what will be in the trailer (no actual footage included):
