"Twilight" fans could get a bonus feature when they go see "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" in the theaters this weekend: a surprise visit from one of the movie's stars.

Throughout the holiday weekend, about 20 cast members will be stopping by theaters across the country to introduce the film and thank fans for all of their support.

They're expected in 23 cities, including ones in Los Angeles and Orange counties.

It's one way the studio is hoping to draw even more people to see the film.

"Eclipse" set a new record for a Wednesday debut this week, pulling in more than $65 million. The third installment in the vampire romance made $30 million from the midnight screenings alone, the most ever for a midnight debut.
