More Than 2,000 Fans Camp Out for New “Twilight” Movie
(LOS ANGELES) — As of Thursday afternoon, more than 2,000 people were lined up in Los Angeles for Breaking Dawn Part 2, eager to camp out for the Monday premiere of the final installment of the Twilight franchise.
Twilight studio Summit Entertainment organized a “camp” for die-hard fans, sometimes known as Twi-hards. Step one: line up in front of L.A.’s Nokia Theater to get your “camping spot” on a concrete plaza outside the theater. Step two: take part in any or all of the activities designed to placate boredom during your five day wait, including Twilight movie screenings and Jamba Juice-sponsored workouts.
Step three: scream your lungs out when Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and the rest of the gang grace the red carpet Monday. Finally, race back to your local movie theater so you can actually see the film when it comes out Nov. 16. Look out for lines there too — advance ticket sales for the movie accounted for nearly 30-percent of MovieTickets and Fandango’s Wednesday sales, according to Deadline.com.
