Fans go crazy for 'Twilight: Eclipse' premiere

June 24, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
It was a night for vampires, werewolves and stargazers in downtown Los Angeles. The third installment of the "Twilight" series premiered Thursday night, with the young stars walking a blood-red carpet past fans who camped out for days to see them.I'm guessing no other premiere this summer will "eclipse" this one. Thousands of guests, hundreds of fans, dozens of stars -- and then there was all that screaming.

Fans of "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" waited for days to scream at their favorite stars.

"I hope they really like it," said "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson. "It's different from the first two, but it kind of takes little elements from the stories, good consistency. I hope people will like it."

"It's the movie," said star Taylor Lautner. "This movie is my favorite of the three so far, definitely. It's so much more exciting. The love triangle is at its height. It's a very exciting film and I can't wait for everyone to see it."

As much fun as the fans are having, I noticed that one star was beating beating to the music playing in the background.

"I'm really glad they're playing the soundtrack," said star Kristen Stewart. "It's making me feel good. If I could have headphones on the carpet the whole time, I think I'd be fine."

The film's co-stars don't get the same screen time as the film's three main characters, but it's still been life-changing for all of them.

"I've gotten this incredible fan base behind me and I think it's every actor's dream to fall into something like 'Twilight,'" said actress Ashley Greene.

"I think I'm involved in something bigger than me, bigger than all of us, that I really don't have anything to do with. I think we really all lucked out," said actress Elizabeth Reaser.

"I don't think you can equate with anything I've ever, or probably ever, will do again and, yeah, you work on something -- I literally worked on this, I think, for four days, and to be a little part of it is what I love," said actress Dakota Fanning.

And I love this story. The film's Kellan Lutz made sure to make a fan's night unforgettable.

"The least we could do is at least save one ticket and make one girl's dream come true," said Lutz.

Kellan's a good guy. He did the same thing at the premiere for "New Moon."

"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" opens June 30.
