Chalk this up to people who have far too much time on their hands. AP interviews rabid fans of the Twilight franchise who are literally camping out in Los Angeles days in advance of the premiere to be the first ones to see the new film The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opening 24 June at the Los Angeles Film Festival. The film opens in wide release 30 June, but these die-hards want to be ahead of the masses on this one. That extra six-day wait would just be too much for art of this caliber, I guess.
