One of my colleagues just IM'd me with the following: "Did you see there's a 1-minute clip of 'Twilight' online???? OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG." While I suspect he was being just a teensy bit sarcastic with the "OMGs," there is indeed a nice little one-minute clip up over on MTV of part of the scene at the ballet studio with James going after Bella, and Edward coming to the rescue. It's a short clip, but it definitely gives you a feel for how director Catherine Hardwicke is handling the action of the vampire fights, and it's pretty intense.

It's just enough to whet your appetite a bit for the full scene up on a big screen ... and of course, by that point in the storyline, there will be plenty of dramatic tension from what's taken place before that to up the intensity level even more.

On the one hand, I kind of like seeing the cast pics and the little clips to get a feel for how it's coming together, but on the other hand, it just makes me that much more impatient for the film to come out; I don't know how my daughter is going to make it until December, she practically broke my eardrum squealing over this clip.

No doubt many of you Twilighters have already watched (and re-watched) the clip, but if you've not seen it yet, go check it out, already. Then pop on back here and weigh in with what you think about how the film seems to be coming together. Are you liking Robert Pattinson as Edward? Did you get goosebumps when he tells James, "I'm strong enough to kill you ... "? And what do you think of the way Hardwicke is handling the visuals of the vampire's abilities? In an earlier clip, we saw Edward running with Bella, and Edward grab her and leap out the window; now we're getting a taste of the battle scenes. I'm liking what I'm seeing ... what do you think?
