Camping Out For the Twilight Premiere: A Look Back at the Previous Camp Outs

Everyone who is a Twilight fan knows that we camp out for events. If there is one thing that we are used to, it’s standing on long lines…overnight.  This week in Laura’s Movies.com column she looks back at the premiere camping experience from its early days in Westwood with Twilight and New Moon, to the move downtown to LA Live with Eclipse and now Breaking Dawn.

Camping out for events has become practically synonymous with The Twilight Saga. This is especially true if the event involves limited seating/viewing and “The Big Trio”, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner. Camping has become so pervasive that Summit Entertainment has issued camping guidelines for the second year in a row, just to keep it all going smoothly and to ensure fan safety.  So, let’s take a look back at the whole premiere camping experience.

When the original Twilight came out in November 2008, fans started showing up in the Westwood area roughly two to three days before. At that time, the film had its premiere in the Mann Theatres that are paired across the street from each other. Reporters took note of the intensity of the red carpet, discovering that fans had slept out over two nights; something that never happens when it comes to independent films. There was definitely a passionate presence and a level of screaming on the red carpet that was new to many.  Veteran actors in the cast like Billy Burke quipped, “I’ve never f***ing seen anything like this.” At one point, when I was trying to communicate with the Twilight Lexicon staff reporter on site, I had to resort to text messaging because I couldn’t hear her over the non-stop screaming.

Well, if people thought Twilight was crowded, a year later New Moon produced a veritable swarm.

Check out the rest of the article here.

The photo is of who I like to think of as the reigning gold medalists of Twilight camping, Alison and company of TwiFans. As I’ve said before, they have raised event camping to an art form! They have some really fabulous advice here if you have never camped before.

USA Breaking Dawn Premiere Date and Location Announced

Dig out those sleeping bags, make those plane reservations, Summit Entertainment just announced the date and location of the Breaking Dawn premiere in the USA. No word yet if there will be other premieres/fan events in other countries.

Here is what we know so far:

The Breaking Dawn World Premiere will be at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on November 14, 2011.

This is the same location as the Eclipse premiere. We expect that Summit will have future information on when, where, and how fans can camp out. Since the Nokia is in downtown Los Angeles and is is a complex of private property there will no doubt be very detailed instructions. As soon as we have them, we will bring them to you.

Comic Con 2012 and Breaking Dawn Premiere Questions Answered

We’ve been getting hit on a daily basis with tons of  emails from fans who want to know details about Comic Con 2012 and the Breaking Dawn premiere in November. We thought we’d just do a brief “this is what we know so far” to get the info out. A lot of it is going to be wait and see, but this is the best we can do at the moment.

When do Comic Con 2012 tickets go on sale?

No official date has been announced yet. Rumor has it that they may go on sale in January. Best to follow the Comic Con website and Twitter to stay on top of the sale date. In the last few years, tickets have sold out within 24-48 hours. Tickets are person specific to avoid scalping. You must have the exact names of the person attending at the time that you buy tickets and they will need photo ID to pick up their badges. Tickets are not transferable.

When can I start camping out for Comic Con?

The San Diego convention center is private property. Comic Con Twilight panel has traditionally started on a Thursday and this year people started camping on Monday. The staff at the convention center was not happy about that at all. They really didn’t want people out there until their tents had been put up late Tuesday. In previous years people did not camp until the day before. The Hall seats 6500 people. There really isn’t a need to get there any earlier than Wednesday in order to get a seat.

What day will Breaking Dawn Part 2 be at Comic Con 2012?

We won’t know that until next spring. In fact they may not choose to be there at all. They have not officially announced and they usually don’t announce until after tickets are on sale. So it’s a proverbial crap shoot each time. Probably a safe bet for tickets on Thursday, but safer to get a four-day pass.

Where should I get a hotel?

Get one near the convention center. Rooms sell out quickly! Book early!

What is camping at Comic Con like?

You get to have a chair or sleeping bag and a backpack/cooler. People have been fairly friendly. You have to walk for food or bathrooms. Freight trains go by several times in the middle of the night. It’s not horrible, but it’s definitely not easy either. I stood on line for an hour from 2:00am to 3:00am to get to the one unlocked bathroom. The bushes were starting to look good…nuff said.

Can I get tickets to the Breaking Dawn premiere?

Probably not unless you are a highly connected industry person. They don’t put them on sale. Last year some people got tickets via the LA Film Festival. Breaking Dawn is not part of that event this year.

When is the premiere?

Summit hasn’t announced when and where it is going to be yet.  In the past for fall release dates it has been the Monday before the movie opens. However there is no guarantee that they will repeat that pattern.

Where is the premiere?

For Twilight and New Moon the premiere was in Westwood. For Eclipse it was in downtown LA at the Nokia. There has been no announcement as to the venue yet. In the past the premiere has been in Los Angeles. Various cast members have then visited different cities around the world for either additional premieres or fan events. There is no current information on foreign appearance locations or dates.

What can I bring to camp out for the Breaking Dawn premiere and when can I show up?

In Westwood you could bring just about anything. In the Nokia there were very specific limitations that were distributed on a spec sheet by Summit Entertainment. It’s going to come down to what the location is. If it’s on public property on the streets there aren’t set rules so much as common sense. Though obeying directives of local law enforcement is key! If it’s on private property, they will give very specific rules. People have generally started camping out 5 days before.

What do I do with my stuff when the red carpet starts?

They security teams have given specific instructions of when to pack out. They usually have a wristband or similar situation to deter line jumping. As with anything, it’s not fool proof.

So that is what we know. if there are other questions put them in the comments and we’ll try to do the best we can to be helpful.
