If what happened in San Francisco yesterday is any indication, I would say that Twilight is going to open to some pretty big box office numbers. Hell, even if what happened didn't happen I would think it was going to be big. I will also say I don't know how in the hell they will ever make a second one based on that book because 300 pages of moping doesn't exactly translate well to the big screen. There isn't a spoiler there, so don't complain. I didn't say who was moping or why, just that it got really damn annoying.
Anyway, yesterday in San Francisco, Robert Pattinson who plays Edward in Twilight was supposed to do a little meet and greet and signing at a Hot Tropic store. Organizers expected about 500 people. Instead they got many, many thousands of people all wanting a piece of Robert. They started arriving at 10am for an evening signing. Soon there were at least 4,000 people and this was still 6 hours before the signing. When the mad crush of people started and injuries started happening, the organizers called off the event and sent people home. A signing at a Hot Tropic store? That seems like a strange place. Luckily the most serious injuries were girl with a broken nose and another fainted. Yeah, probably watching her friend getting her nose broken.
