Summit Pictures(NEW YORK) — Your local movie theater will be packed with teens all weekend long, because the fifth and final Twilight film has made its debut.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 reunites stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.  Stewart’s Bella has given birth to her daughter with Pattinson’s vampire character, Edward.  She survived the delivery and is now a vampire herself.

The couple’s family is threatened when the ancient vampire council, the Volturi, finds out about their child, which is half-human, half-vampire.

Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Dakota Fanning, Michael Sheen and Peter Facinelli also star in Breaking Dawn — Part 2, which is rated PG-13.  [Click here to read a review]

How big of a weekend will Breaking Dawn –- Part 2 have?  Well, consider this: the film represented 92 percent of all ticket sales on Fandango for Thursday.  There are predictions that it could rake in as much as $150 million.

ABC News Radio caught up with some fans after a late Thursday night screening in Manhattan, and their reviews were mostly positive. 

A woman named Joanna initially screamed with excitement as she spoke to a reporter, then, after composing herself, said, “I thought that it was the perfect marriage of all of the series, and it came together nicely.”

A 22-year-old female fan named Alex gave the film a “B,” explaining, “It was blatantly obvious that it was forced, a lot of it.  The sex scenes were horrible.  And the fight was really good.”

A man named Jorge — who clearly was not a “Twi-hard” — was less enthusiastic.  He said, “It was the least bad of the Twilight movies.  Like — it was nowhere near any of the awesome summer blockbusters: No, Batman, no, Avengers, no.  It’s the least bad, the least girly movie.”

If Twilight’s not your thing, you can check out Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, which expands into wide release this weekend.  Daniel Day-Lewis stars as the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln.
