CBS Los Angeles reports that fans were asked to pack up their tents by 6 a.m. Monday. More than 1,000 of the fans received wrist bands that will get them near the red carpet for the premiere.

Arrivals for the event will begin at 4:30 p.m., Pacific time, the station reports, and the premiere itself will begin at 7 p.m.

The film doesn't open until Nov. 18, but it's already raking in big bucks - advance tickets from Fandango and have sold out on 2,300 screens in the U.S. Analysts say the film could see a $155 million opening weekend.

Tell us: Will you see "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" on opening weekend?
