`Twilight’ fans fill downtown LA ahead of premiere


LOS ANGELES (AP) — More than 1,500 “Twilight” fans are spending the weekend camping out in downtown Los Angeles to celebrate the release of the final film in the vampire-romance series.

Tents filled the street in front of Staples Center and sprawled across L.A. Live plaza Friday, many decorated with homemade posters and photo collages of stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.

Fans came from as far away as England, France and Argentina to bond with their fellow Twi-Hards and have a chance to see the film’s cast members in person.
