Eonline Reports On The Midnight Showings And Who We Screamed For

• Full disclosure: We attended a 12:15 a.m. showing, not a midnight one. The midnight showtimes were, natch, sold out. In fact, as the premiere hour neared at our Los Angeles-area theater, four of the seven Eclipse screenings—from 12 a.m. to 12:40 a.m.—were booked. • Vampires and wolves do not scare off boys. Not if they're out on dates with girls. The (long) lines were more than dotted with dudes. It was a strange thing, though, on the way out, we only saw women. Have no idea what happened to the guys during the movie. You don't think they could've been scared off by…

• …Lautner's never-get-old abs? Say, did we already mention those? Sorry. We're a little loopy right now. Our ears are still ringing from the applause, catcalls and lusty pleas earned by each and every toned thing on the young Mr. Lautner's torso.

• Our three favorite lines shouted at the screen, presented in ascending order as determined by how out of her gourd the Lauter-crazed woman sounded: (1) "Take that shirt off!"; (2) "That's a real man!"; and, quick, grab a glass of water, no, better make it a hose, (3) "I can't take it anymore!"

• But wait, there's more: Lautner's business, as it were, with Kristen Stewart generated at least one fist pump. It was dark, so we couldn't tell for sure, but we wouldn't be surprised if the pleased individual was one of Lautner's agents.

• We should write here that Robert Pattinson's first appearance generated squeals, too. We should write that. But it didn't.

• No, Pattinson backers didn't bring the night-out-at-Chippendales passion. With one "Oh, sh-t!" exception.

• Out of deference to the lollygaggers who have not yet seen the movie, we will say no more about the above except to say that at one heated moment a presumed Team Edward supporter forgot her courtly, old-world self, and went all Samantha Jones, exclaiming over and over and over again, "Oh, sh-t! Oh, sh-t! Oh, sh-t!" Take that, Team Jacob.

• The Victoria recast was barely noticed, if at all. There were no audible protests from Rachel Lefevre diehards. There was no applause for Bryce Dallas Howard, although given her remarkable resemblance to a mid-run Designing Women Annie Potts, trust us, we were tempted.

• There probably will be some crossover audience for Eclipse and Julia Roberts' Eat Pray Love, but this was not the night—and the latter's Oprah-vibing trailer died a quiet death, especially next to the cheers and whistles for the new Harry Potter coming attraction. (Who said wizards and wolves can't get along?)

• First two discernible words heard as the end credits rolled at 2:20 a.m.-ish: "Breaking Dawn." Guess it's back to the gym, for you, Lautner.

Lautner's a great actor! I love the scenes with him and Stewart. Taylor and Kristen's scenes are so emotional, and more real. Go Team Stewner ;)

Ok really I saw the movie and there is no possible way you can lay that Lautner is a great actor. All he has going for him are his abs. I get why young girls and cougars dig this kid, but he had no substance in the movie, the kissing scene with Bella had no heat. The only redeeming quality of the tent scene was Robert, because I never in the two hour long movie felt any real emotion from Jacob.

@Creampuff -- We've all got our own opinions.

I saw the movie 3 times. All the reactions differed. The frist was a screening, everyone was crazy and everyone was loud. The second the premire. mostly the same. Taylor got the most laughs and screams beacuse of the gorgeous abs. Of course. But when I saw at 12:01 last night the reactions were completly different. Rob got little screams. people almost died when Taylor got of his motorcycle and when he had his s*** of and everyone laughed at the ring. LOL! it not pretty.And when Taylor walked away from Bella on the hill people were like "NO! Keep WALKING!" LOL!It was really funny. I just think people who are not as dedicated as most have different recations. Rob was good of course, but Taylor, dare I say it stole the show. It was much better than his performance in New Moon. He had feeling and made everyone laugh. Dont get angry at me its just my opinion.

It was nice seeing them all again. The movie was good. Still can't touch the books. Not expecting that much more for BD either, since Melissa Rosenberg is still writing her interpretation to the screen. It was great seeing how each character has matured over the course of the movies, and wonderful seeing some of the character's past brought to life. If, albeit, not as lengthy as some wanted. I just like seeing some of my favorite parts brought to life. What all "readers" need to keep in mind is that no one will ever achieve the vision you have developed as you read the book. Treasure those, and enjoy the movies for what they are, others interpretations of the written word. To the cast congratulations you have excelled, to David, thank you for a wonderful piece of film.

I agree that no movie is ever as great as the book because we interpret the book how we see it. The movie was great and I'm definitely Team Edward but Jacob was okay. I was surrounded by girls screaming every time Jacob was on the screen. I guess he did a good job but I still don't like him. It is sad that they had to leave out so much of the story and change it so much to make it a better visual experience and to explain so many things that they didn't show. Lots of action tho. Thank you Stephanie for writing such as awesome story and to David and Melissa for making the movie.
