The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Los Angeles - Dozens of excited Twilight fans set up tents in Los Angeles on Thursday ahead of next week's world premiere of the last film in the vampire romance franchise.

Some 2 200 people from all over the world have registered to camp on a concrete plaza outside a downtown Los Angeles movie theater, movie studio Summit Entertainment said.

The fans - most of them young women - will get guaranteed spots to see stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner walk the red carpet for the 12 November premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.

Twilight-themed workout

Summit has laid on special activities during the five day wait, including a marathon screening of the four other films in the blockbuster franchise, surprise appearances from some cast members, and a Twilight-themed workout.

"We figured it was a once in a lifetime opportunity for some of us. This is the last movie. We're never going to get to do it again and we wanted to hang out with some of our friends for the last one," Bri-Anne Glover told Reuters Television as she settled in at the camp on Thursday.

"I love Breaking Dawn because that's kind of where I am in my life. I've got the husband, I've got my children, and we're getting on with our lives and having a happy life and the same with Edward and Jacob and Bella," said fan Eryka Bradford.

The Twilight books by author Stephenie Meyer have been a publishing sensation and the four movies have made more than $2.5bn combined at box offices worldwide.

The final film sees the bliss of newlyweds Bella (Stewart) and Edward (Pattinson) and their daughter threatened by an ancient vampire coven.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 opens in several European countries on 14 November and arrives in US and South African movie theatres on 16 November.
