We're officially a week away from the release of "Breaking Dawn - Part I," but those in Los Angeles are focusing first on Monday's premiere.
Fans have pitched their tents in front of the Nokia Theater in downtown L.A. to secure prime R.Patz/K.Stew/Taylor Lautner-sighting real estate. According to Deadline, more than 700 Twihards have been rallying and waiting for the fourth installment of the "Twilight" saga to premiere since Thursday.
CNN's cameras even spotted a fan or two arriving dressed as brides, so that they could take a picture with a cutout of "Edward" (played by Robert Pattinson) dressed for a wedding, complete with cake. (Hey, we all have our fantasies.)
Deadline reports that "Breaking Dawn - Part I" is already contributing to 72 percent of movie ticket e-retailer Fandango's weekly sales - 7 days ahead of the release.
