‘Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ preems at L.A. Live

A big fight to the finish for 'Twilight' pic

Lionsgate did not hold back at Monday’s preem of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2” at L.A. Live.

To underline the pic’s wintry wonderland and lupine themes, a trio of large wolves — Harley, Shadow and Thunder by name — were placed in a 20-foot-high pen outside the post-screening bash. Additionally, the wait staff were outfitted in the red and black garb of the Volturi vampire clan.

Wyck Godfrey, who’s produced all five “Twilight” films, allowed that he was basking in a sense of relief over fan reaction, since the fifth film’s extensive fight scene isn’t part of Stephenie Meyer’s original novel.

“I feel much better now,” he added. “I loved hearing the screaming. And I never expected we’d wind up like this with five films.”

Lionsgate’s Rob Friedman, who oversaw the birth of “Twilight” while heading Summit, admitted to a strong sense of nostalgia about the franchise coming to a close.

“I’ve found myself reminiscing a lot tonight,” he mused. “We never expected this level of success. You hope for it but you don’t expect it.”
