THE box office smash Twilight: Breaking Dawn had a strong opening Tuesday at Palace Cineplex Sovereign Centre in St Andrew.
The premiere raised funds for Jamaica's water polo team to the 2013 CARIFTA Games.
"We are elated with the turnout of supporters this evening. Not only are these persons 'Twilight' lovers but they are supporting a great cause as Jamaicans can be good at any sport, not just track and field," said Lance Rochester, head of Jamaica Water Polo.
With formalities out of the way, it was time for the movie. Part two of the Twilight saga tells the story of newly-wed vampires Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) whose marital bliss is short-lived when the life of their daughter, Renesmee, is threatened. In order to protect their child against the Volturi (another group of vampires), they gather their allies and prepare for a crucial battle.
The movie was well received by fans as the cinema roared with excitement throughout.
Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 has amassed over US$200 million internationally to date at the box office.
