“Twilight” will fill the November 21 vacancy recently left by the nine-month delay of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”
According to the vampire flick’s producers at Summit Entertainment, the eagerly anticipated “Twilight” movie release date will be moved up from December 12.
“When Warner Bros. decided to move ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ to the summer of 2009, we saw a unique opportunity to slot in our film which has been gaining tremendous awareness and momentum over the past several months,” Summit said in the statement Friday. “We by no means are trying to fill the shoes of the incredible POTTER franchise for 2008, rather we are just looking to bring the fans of Stephenie Meyer’s incredible book series the film as soon possible from a programming perspective.”
While Summit declines all suggestion that they are trying to replace “Harry Potter” in the holiday season, it looks like “Twilight” is going to be the “it” kids movie of Christmas break. We at Blast speculate that it could soon be filling another big set of shoes that the witches and wizards have left empty … big screen, possibly three-dimensional shoes.
OMG awesome .and it might be 3-d? did i read that right????
how freakin AWESOME!
This is fantastic news.
I can’t wait. I’m ecstatic to be able to see it possibly on an IMAX screen. I’ll be away at college and only 5 minutes from an IMAX. But 3-D? I don’t know. I think it’ll be cool to watch but it would take away from the depth of the movie. It might just be a distraction in the end if they end up doing it 3-D. IMAX would be neat, but I hope it doesn’t go 3-D.
November 21st. OMFG I can’t wait. haha 🙂
My first thought is to compliment S. Meyer. Without her ceative insight there wouln’t be any “TWILIGHTERS” . She wrote for fun. Creating her own fantasy world based upon a dream and her love of reading. Writing can be viewed as an escape from your problems, big or small. WE LIVE IN A TROUBLED TIME . Does anyone watch CNN? OMG… ISN’T IN MY VOCABULARY.
SO BECOME EDUCAtTED ABOUT THE ISSUES AIND VOTE!!!!
Now, back to “Twilight”. Patinson, this is your break into bigger roles. You do have the talent. So go for the roles that challenge you… Totally love your personality, you shine the most just being yourself. Love your jokes & facial expressions , a young Jim Carey?
Stewart, obviously extemely talented and grounded. Yet, you need to open up to your fans a little more… I question, “Do you want the fast, paced celeb.lifestyle or were you thrust into it?” $$$ isn’t everythingI!! Just follow your insticts? Make yourself happy, but finish the Twilight Series. you are the perfect Bella.
Cam, be prepared because I predict you’ll steal the spotlight. Every Am. girl loves the hot, bad boys….THE 1ST RULE OF WRITING IS REWRITE….. Oh yeah, you sholud be popping up in Bella’s nightmares Or Victoria”s fantasies/ memories? Actually, Meyers should’ve expand on their relationship too explain the dynamics.
WON’T SPOIL THE FUN… GET TO YOUR LOCAL LIB. OR BOOKSTOE AND READ………AND KEEP ON READING….
YAY!!! I’m so glad i’ll be able to see the movie even closer!!!! :] I think that Twilight is soooo gonna kick “Potters” butt in the next couple years or atleast this year! it’sgonna b amazing. I mean the books r more than describable and the Twilight tee-shirts from Border are already sold out and I DIDNT get 1! :[[[[ ughh! but I’m gonna find it on ebay…lol. but anywho iM so glad its gonna b 3 weeks closer!!! but I don’t really want it 2 be in 3D. I think it would take away some of the magic from the movie. lol
GREAT NEWS ! YAY CAN’T WAIT !
LOVE TWILIGHT BEST BOOK SERIES FOR ME OF COURSE HEHE …
ookay. Now that I got that out. Yay. yay. yayayayayayayayayyy.
Except for the fact that I live 2 hours from an imax! grrr. and I need one of those damned edward t shirts from borders. I’ll be all out of money what with buying all the special editions of the saga theyre coming out with in the next couple of months so by the time it gets out I’ll have no money!!!
*sqeals* *sigh* *shakes head*
OMFG!!!!!! THAT’S FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone has been begging for it to come out sooner and now it is!!!!!
I was so mad…i love both of them. It would’ve been so much better for them to be close together. I was really looking forward to seeing HP for Thanksgiving, and Twilight for Christmas…
But NO. We have to wait for HP because they want the money of a summer blockbuster. D: Whhhyyyy? It’s HP! You’ll get the same amount of many at any time of the year!
And now, if the twilight movie disappoints (I’m usually not that judgmental, but I can’t say that for everyone) there will always be those mutterings “Harry Potter would’ve been better…”
…which I am so not looking forward to hearing.
Why can’t we get the original airdates back? Come on.
