Downtown Los Angeles has become Bieberville. Hundreds of Justin Bieber fans filled the L.A. Live complex Tuesday for the premiere of the teen pop star's first movie, "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never." The mostly 'tween and teen crowd, many in homemade T-shirts proclaiming themselves Bieber's No. 1 fan, filled the LA Live plaza hours ahead of the screening, hoping for a star sighting.

"We just wanted to see if we could get a glimpse of Justin," said 15-year-old Hanna Hamersley, who wore a purple handpainted T-shirt, a homemade Justin Bieber headband and purple "Never Say Never" 3-D glasses.

Part concert film and part biopic, "Never Say Never" tells the story of Bieber's rise from a small-town street performer to a bonafide pop sensation with hit albums, a bestselling book and more than seven million followers on Twitter.

"We made it for everyone," Bieber tweeted Tuesday. "We put our hearts and souls into it."
