An advance screening of One Direction's new film This Is Us caused a fan frenzy in Los Angeles over the weekend, with police reportedly called in to help calm the crowd.
According to the Los Angeles Times, fans had been lining up outside The Grove's Pacific Theatres since 3.45am to check out the documentary.
When the screening kicked off at 10am and word spread that there were still some empty seats in the auditorium, hundreds of young female fans allegedly stormed the theatre entrance.
One 40-year-old mother told the Los Angeles Times: “They charged and went straight past the ticket takers for the doors of the actual theatre screaming, ‘Let us in! Let us in!’"
“It took about a half an hour before a police car came with two policemen in it."
The woman continued: “I’ve been to plenty of premieres and have seen people go crazy over Johnny Depp and Tom Cruise, but nothing like this. Now I’m really convinced that One Direction is like the Beatles of this generation.”
A source later told E! News that, despite the excitement, the screening went ahead as expected. The source revealed: "Security was able to stop anyone from entering. It was a non-incident. The screening carried on as planned."
This Is Us hits cinemas across the UK and Ireland on August 29.
