Fans of Stephanie Meyer's vampire series finally got to feast on the big-screen version last night, as Twilight opened with midnight showings across the nation. More than 8.5 million copies of Meyer's books have been sold in the U.S., so there's a huge, waiting audience -- especially girls. Hundreds of premiere screenings sold out, and the L.A. premiere was a teen shriek-fest.

If you didn't get to see the movie, but want a taste of the frenzy, check out the reports and review from The Sun and this photo gallery of the L.A. premiere. Here are profiles of the movie's stars: Kristin Stewart (Bella Swan) and Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen).
