Today is a day of mourning for many the world over. Most probably thought this moment would never come. But as with all things in life, it was inevitable: the final Twilight film is opening. While certainly a highly anticipated event, it will undoubtedly be met with tears. How will we persevere without another feverish, KPatt love-fest just around the corner? A few lucky New Yorkers got a head start on the (funereal) proceedings Thursday night when The Cinema Society and Samsung Galaxy hosted a special screening of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2" at the Landmark Sunshine Theater. Kristen Stewart, Rob Pattinson and Taylor Lautner were off promoting the movie in Spain, but Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Dakota Fanning, Peter Facinelli and Elizabeth Reaser put on their game faces straight through to the after-party, held appropriately enough at the club Finale. Stockpile those Kleenex now.
