Opening wkend of the final Twilight movie-
you could tell who had read the books by the exclamations at the final fight scene.
But then, as a wave, the audience ran with it, enjoying and cringing as it went on, with a collective, "Whoa! Did NOT see that coming!" at the reveal. We had been taken for a collective ride, and enjoyed it, together.
A friend of mine went with a later audience, with those who may not have read the books, just went along, and did not get the same theatre experience.
Still, either showing was fine except for the two women that sat nicely through all the previews, and then
decide to open all their cellophane wrapped and crunchy candies when the real movie began. Arghgh!
