twilightGot a “Twilight” fan at home? Then you’ll want to read this. Vampire fever took over Comic Con in San Diego yesterday — that’s vampire as in Edward, dreamy hero of Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling YA novels, not Dracula. And the chance to see footage from the new movie, “Twilight,” which opens Dec. 12, had hundreds of teens camped overnight on the sidewalk. Thousands filled the comic convention’s largest exhibit hall, and screams erupted when the young stars of the flick were introduced. They’re familiar faces, too. Edward will be played by Robert Pattinson, who you may remember as hunky heartthrob and all-around good guy Cedric Diggory in “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.” Bella is Kristen Stewart (“Jumper” and “Zathura”). Want a sneak peek of your own? Summit Entertainment has trailers posted here.
