Volturi Vampires Watch The Seattle Chaos Unfold In A New 'Eclipse' Clip

Mere minutes after I hit publish on the new image of "Eclipse," released on Oprah's website to amp fans up for today's episode featuring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Dakota Fanning, a new clip from the movie popped up Apple's website featuring the scene from which that image comes. Fanning and her fellow Volturi are indeed looking concerned because of the growing newborn army in Seattle, part of Victoria's (Bryce Dallas Howard) plot to avenge the death of her vampy lover James (Cam Gigandet) in the first movie. We can't embed the clip here, but we can direct you to it (if you haven't already found it on your own).

What do you think? I really liked that last, action-focused "Eclipse" trailer, but this scene doesn't really do it for me. Granted, I'm not exactly the target audience for this series, but having covered it extensively I'm familiar enough with what's going on to be able to form some opinions. I like the look of the scene, but the performances -- and maybe this is just a question of context -- feel a little wooden. What do you real fans think?
