Only 800 lucky fans get red carpet tickets for 'New Moon' premiere
LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Twilight" fans have taken over the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Thousands of fans from as far away as New York filled the streets near UCLA on Monday, hoping to catch a glimpse of their favorite undead stars attending the evening premiere of "New Moon' — the second film in the "Twilight' vampire saga.
Some "twi-hards" — as they call themselves — arrived as early as Thursday afternoon to secure a place in line for tickets allowing them to watch the stars' arrivals on the red carpet. The 800 available tickets were all distributed by Monday morning.
Some of the cheering fans — mostly young women — were wearing T-shirts proclaiming their allegiance to either Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner, the bloodsucking stars of "New Moon." One woman held a homemade sign saying, "We love Robert and Taylor they rock our socks."
