The Twilight Saga: Eclipse 2010 11x17 C MOVIE POSTER Kristen Stewart Robert Pattinson Taylor LautnerBelow is a guest post from Twilight fan and expert, Michelle Pan, author of the book Bella Should Have Dumped Edward and owner of the Twilight fan site BellaAndEdward.com. She has interviewed many of the cast members and Stephanie Meyer and was invited to the Eclipse premiere. She herself has been interviewed by many media outlets such as Business Week and ReelzChannel. Here is the perspective of a real Twilight fan at the premiere of Eclipse:

Hey there! I’m Michelle Pan, founder and owner of the Twilight fansite BellaAndEdward.com and the author of Bella Should Have Dumped Edward. I recently got back from the world premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in Los Angeles, California. There, I interviewed the cast and crew and talked to some of the fans who showed up to support the movie. There were many Twilighters who camped out for four days – yes, four days – just to get a spot on the red (excuse me, black) carpet! What’s interesting to note is that these fans included not only teenage girls, but guys and Twilight moms as well. One of the great things about the Twilight saga is that its fan base is not limited to a certain age group. True, most of the fans are females under the age of 25, but the story of Bella and Edward can be appreciated by both teens and parents alike. Twilight moms made up a large portion of the fans on the black carpet!

The premiere itself was incredible. Apart from not having the usual red carpet, the Eclipse premiere was a whole new experience for everyone. It was moved out of Westwood (where the previous premieres were held) and into a new location – the Nokia Theater at LA Live. The night started around 6:00 pm with some of the smaller stars coming down the black carpet. As each cast member passed the media area, all of the fan sites would pick up their phones and tweet a picture of the actor/actress. It’s a wonder how we didn’t overload the Twitter server that night! If we could catch the cast members, we had the opportunity to ask them a couple of questions. I was fortunate enough to be able to interview people like Nikki Reed (Rosalie), Jackson Rathbone (Jasper), David Slade (director), and Stephenie Meyer (author). Attending the movie premieres has always been one of my favorite things about what I do. Not only do I get to chat with the movie stars, but I also get to see my fan site friends and all of the fans in one place! And trust me, that kind of opportunity doesn’t present itself every day.

I hope you guys take the time to go and see Eclipse if you haven’t already, and even if you have, go and see it again! While you’re at it, don’t forget to check out BellaAndEdward.com and my new book, Bella Should Have Dumped Edward! Happy Twilighting! Michelle Pan
