To the deafening screams of thousands of fans (most of whom were female, naturally) that had camped out for four days, the stars of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse stepped out at L.A. Live’s Nokia Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles on Thursday, June 24th for the film’s highly anticipated premiere, which was part of the Los Angeles Film Festival.
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner were joined by their co-stars, including Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Dakota Fanning, Bryce Dallas Howard, Anna Kendrick, Charlie Bewley, Xavier Samuel, Alex Meraz and Julia Jones, along with pretty much all of the other actors who have played vampires, werewolves and humans in the films, no matter how small the role. Also in attendance were director David Slade, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, the film’s producers, some of the soundtrack artists (The Bravery, Metric, Eastern Conference Champions) and the woman responsible for it all, author Stephenie Meyer.
