Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 — Los Angeles says goodbye to Bella, Edward and Jacob (video)

50700 full

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2 opens in movie theaters starting Thursday, Nov. 15, at 10 p.m. Whether the thought of this premiere causes you to blush excitedly or break out in hives, it's important to know where to go/what to avoid as events unfold in Los Angeles.

Now, keep in mind, this is a film of great importance for people who understand what the below IMDB summary means (for those who do not know about Twilight, however, the description reads kind of like this):

After the birth of Renesmee, the Cullens gather other vampire clans in order to protect the child from a false allegation that puts the family in front of the Volturi.

Either way, for the foreseeable future, it's best to prepare to be wolfpacked together with fellow Twihards, or be fighting tooth-and-fang to dodge the bloody mess (and spoiler-laden questionable "imprinting" controversy).

Is this film the exciting conclusion where Buffy sings and saves Earth!? Will Los Feliz homeowners KStew and RPatz go back to the Ye Rustic Inn and rekindle their whatevermance!? Do the Pacific Northwest pseudo-supernatural antics of vampires and werewolves have anything to do with who killed Laura Palmer? We may never know.

What we do know, is that Deadline reported this morning that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 was responsible for 92 percent of Thursday's Fandango sales, according to the online ticket seller. Don't know where to start? All roads lead back to the Twilight Saga Facebook page, or track the #Twilight hashtag on Twitter for sparkling insight.


Marathons Marathons Marathons. Twilight-viewing film marathons are underway at movie theaters all around the city. If you're the type of fan who would sit through one of these, you're already there.

Blood Drive. Children's Hospital L.A. will host The Cullen Family Blood Drive on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. onsite at Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE Stadium 14. Human fans are encouraged to make an appointment to donate blood. Reserve a spot by calling (323) 361-6377. If helping save lives isn't enough incentive, hopefully the while-supplies-last collectible Twilight gift will.

See Bella's Truck! The actual beat-up red 1963 Chevy pickup seen in the movies will be on display at Universal CityWalk starting today, Nov. 15, through Sunday in front of the CityWalk Cinemas and IMAX theater.
