“Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” (only a vampire juggernaut could get away with that clunky title punctuation) has its L.A. premiere at the Nokia theatre on Monday.

Over 700 people showed up five days early in hopes that they’ll glimpse Pattinson or Kristen Stewart when they stroll the red carpet on Monday.

They’re not just pitching tents — they’re spending money.

According to Deadline, fans’s “Twilight” pre-orders currently comprise over 70 per cent of the site’s weekly sales.
