HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hundreds waited in line since 6:00 AM Tuesday to see the highly anticipated midnight premiere of the latest in the Twilight series, "Eclipse."

Fans were camping out with tickets in hand, hoping to get a good seat.

There were fans of all ages, but of course, the majority of people at the premiere were teenage girls.

But we did meet a 25-year-old man whose a self-described midnight movie freak, or at least that's what he told us.

He arrived at Ward Theaters at 1:30 p.m., Tuesday and he wouldn't have it any other way.

"I'm here because it's fun to see all the midnight premiere people," Kapahulu resident Josh Moore said. "They're a crowd unto itself, a lot of fun to meet a lot of interesting people. I brought a nice comfortable folding chair, snacks, water and to keep myself from being bored, I brought my laptop."

Moore also has a good strategy when it comes to these movies. He reads all the books, but he doesn't read the last chapter, so at least the ending is still a mystery to him.
