Die-hard Twilight fans have been following the story of Bella, the moody outcast teenager with a romantic affinity for vampires and werewolves, since author Stephanie Meyer published the first book in 2005. Now, the story comes to a close with the release of the final movie — Breaking Dawn: Part 2.
On Thursday afternoon, fans across the country were sitting in theaters watching a marathon of the four-movie set, awaiting the 10 p.m. showing of the final installment of the Twilight Saga. Across the country and as close by as Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek, tickets for the first screenings had long sold out. Now, weekend watchers will head to Concord's theaters to see what the fuss is all about.
The spoilerless plot can be summed up as follows: Bella has married her vampire boyfriend Edward and after an accelerated pregnancy and gruesome labor, born unto the world a half-vampire child. In the process, Bella herself had to be turned into a vampire to save her from "dying" (although, technically, she is now dead — but living dead). Now the whole clan — including the werewolves — must team up to protect little Renesmee from the vampire leaders, the Volturi, who consider the child to be a betrayal against the vampire kind.
