Twilight fans and Robert Pattinson cardboard cut-out camp out at Nokia Plaza in Los AngelesOkay, we knew Twilight fans were a little obsessive - but this is just ridiculous. For the past few days now, hundreds of Twi-Hards have been camping outside the Nokia Plaza in Los Angeles. The reason? The Twilight: Eclipse world premiere, of course.

Hoping for a chance to spot the likes of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner on the red carpet, the die-hard fans first began pitching tents at 6am on Monday - an incredible 96 hours before the Thursday Eclipse premiere.

Hoping for a chance to spot the likes of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner on the red carpet, the die-hard fans first began pitching tents at 6am on Monday - an incredible 96 hours before the Thursday Eclipse premiere.

Armed with cardboard cut-outs of Robert Pattinson plus all manner of teen vampire paraphernalia, the fans - who have travelled from all over the world in some cases - have been entertained by the Eclipse trailer playing over and over (and over) again on a large screen facing the camping area.

One man, Eric Irizarry from New Zealand, made the trip to LA with his niece, claiming: "I told her I owed her a trip so we brought her out here and between her and my wife they convinced me to camp out."

Approximately 9,000 wristbands are being handed out to fans which will allow them access to a fan viewing area. On Wednesday, security will then relocate the crowd so that preparation for the premiere can begin. Fans will finally be formed into one line based on their wristbands at 2pm on Thursday.

But before any Brit-based Twilight fans start looking for their camping gear prior to the Eclipse UK premiere on 1 July, please be aware of one thing... Lautner, Pattinson and Stewart are not expected to attend.

Take a look at the hundreds of Twi-Hards camping out in LA and watch a video of them, erm, sitting around...
