After reading the plot synopsis on Wikipedia, it's basically season one and two of Buffy the Vampire Slayer compressed into two hours from the teenage girl Bella (Buffy) moving to a brand new town with a single parent, her Father (Buffy's Mother in the TV series of Buffy), meeting and falling in love with a vampire Edward (Angel) despite her being fated to slay vampires (okay, that part isn't in Twilight), which makes things interesting when a band of vampires, the Cullens and James (Spike, Darla and Drusilla) arrive in Forks (Sunnydale).
The producers are apparently intending to make sequels to Twilight; a brief look at Meyer's books shows one character is a werewolf, but Buffy had one of those, too: Oz, the guitarist for Dingoes Ate My Baby.
Stephenie Meyer couldn't come up with an original story?

But do you think Buffy was original? Really? Vampire books is all about creating atmosphere and mythology, because almost nothing is original anymore. I will probably read Meyer one day, but I'm still traumatized with the LJ Smith series The Vampire Diaries:
Elena is a young woman who is used to getting everything she wants and is known as the ice queen of the school. Armed with the weapons of charm and wit, she has seduced any man that piqued her interest. That is until Stefan came along.
Stefan, the only one who seems able to resist her charms, but loves her deeply. Young, dramatic, silent, and mysterious, he's like a drug for Elena. He was born sometime in the Italian Renissance and is the youngest of the two vampire brothers.
Damon is the eldest of the vampire brothers, brash and arrogant. He fought with Stefan over Katherine's affections centuries ago and now he intends on taking Elena. He's dark and sadistic, but also charming and seductive in a dangerous way.

Finally! A trailer worth looking at (I thought the first two seemed artificial and labored). Now hopefully the movie doesn't disappoint either...

still doesn't do it for me;
also there is no violence or blood or sex in this because it's against the Author's beliefs (she is Mormon) which begs the question how this story going to have any kind of tension and relationship (the forbidden love between a human and a vampire) if those elements are not allowed?
"Radioactive Spiders and Kryptonite".... 2 of the characters fighting and sliding on the floor and the floor time coming up loose from under them when they slid ... HOW ORIGINAL!!
