The movie premiered in Rome on Sunday (Oct. 30) and while most of the cast was not on hand, stars Nikki Reed and Jackson Rathbone were there to not only walk the red carpet, but also participate in a Q&A session with the media and fans.

The premiere was part of the 6th annual International Rome Film Festival. Other films being screened at the festival include Michelle Williams' "My Week With Marilyn"; "Catching Hell," the story of Steve Bartman and the Chicago Cubs; "A Few Best Men," starring Xavier Samuel and Olivia Newton-John; and "Too Big to Fail," the chronicle of the 2008 financial crisis.

Richard Gere will also be receiving the Marcus Aurelius award to honor his film career. The festival kicked off Thursday, Oct. 27 and runs through Friday, Nov. 4.

"Breaking Dawn's" United States premiere will take place Monday, Nov. 14 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
