Summit Entertainment Announces Camp-Out Dates for “Eclipse” Premiere
By Tracy Rosenfield
Hollywoodnews.com: Aside from the “Harry Potter” franchise, there’s rarely a movie release that requires an official statement about when fans can begin camping out.
As you may have heard, camping is permitted for the “Eclipse” red carpet premiere at the Nokia Theater at LA Live beginning June 21st at 6AM PT. It has also been noted that people cannot wait in line to start the official camping out, which would (and will) no doubt happen with this fandom.
For the “New Moon” premiere, fans and fan sites started camping out about five days before the official red carpet premiere. FIVE DAYS! There are a lot of questions and thoughts that enter my mind: Food, liquid (and therefore bathroom breaks) and showers. I’m assuming you camp out with others and take turns “on guard” while the rest take care of their needs.
Sure, people who wait the longest will likely get the best spot and chance at meeting the cast, but is it worth it? Would you rather represent the fandom at your best, or in a likely exhausted, maybe run down state after sleeping outside for five days? I’d like to hear in the comments below what your opinion is on the subject, especially if you’ve camped out before.
