We recently checked with Summit Films regarding the status of fan involvement during the premiere. According to Summit the premiere will take place at the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater on November 17th. It’s standard to do a premiere a few days ahead of the nationwide release.
Fans are welcomed to come out and see the stars by standing in roped off areas. We specifically asked Summit "Is there any restriction security wise on who can be outside the theater. In other words would the average fan have the opportunity to stand behind a rope line and see the stars arrive?" and we were told "There are no restrictions regarding being present for arrivals at the premiere."
We also asked if the average fan would have any opportunity to actually get inside the premiere, and they are getting back to us on that. However they did share a bunch of new info seen below.
We’re excited to announce the launch date for the new TWILIGHT trailer, set to debut online next Thursday, October 9. It can also be seen in theaters attached to select films (at the discretion of the exhibitor). There will also be a sneak peak of the new trailer on Entertainment Tonight on Thursday, October 9th. Immediately following the sneak peak, Summit is letting the fans be the first to see the trailer online in its entirety and share it.
We wanted you, the devoted Twilight fans, to be the first to hear and share this exclusive news!
