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.

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 dollars.

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. It was nowhere near any of the awesome summer blockbusters: No, Batman, no, Avengers, no. It's the least bad, the least girly movie."

Another fan named Natalie said the finale was a good escape from reality.

"I loved it. It was just as I expected it to be. I'm happy with the way it left off," she said.

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