Thousands of fans camped out for days to see the stars of ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ at the L.A. Live Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday, June 24, 2010. The film’s premiere was part of the Los Angeles Film Festival, and boy, were people psyched!
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner (pictured, right) were joined by co-stars 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 all the other vampires, werewolves and humans in the film.
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, of course, author Stephenie Meyer, who wrote the ‘Twilight’ novels. Without her, no one would have been there!
Pictures after the jump!
I’m sure every celebrity looking for a photo op was there, as well. Some of those on the black carpet – yes, black! — included Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jaden Smith and sister Willow Smith, L.A. Laker Ron Artest, the Kardashian sisters, ‘True Blood’ star Kevin Alejandro, Zachary Levi, Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, figure skaters Kristi Yamaguchi and Evan Lysacek, Alyson Michalka (star of the upcoming CW series, ‘Hellcats’), ‘90210’ star AnnaLynne McCord, Briana Evigan, Jaime King, ‘Glee’ star Heather Morris, and lots of others.
