The Twilight Saga: New Moon Extended Edition Blu-ray review

New Moon

Written by Melissa Rosenberg
Based on the novel by Stephenie Meyer

Lionsgate Films / Summit Entertainment
Rated PG-13
130 minutes
Release Date: October 23, 2018

The opening dream scene in the meadow gets me every time as Bella sees herself as old with Edward. I think it is a beautiful concept as Bella (Kristen Stewart) worries about aging while her true vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson) stays forever young at seventeen, and will not turn her. It’s Bella’s birthday, and as much as she “doth” protests, everyone reminds her of the celebrating. She really doesn’t get Edward’s attitude, until her disastrous birthday party at the Cullens where she almost becomes dessert that Carlisle (Peter Facinelli) explains it all to her.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN-PART 2 07

The sparkling vampires are coming to Facebook.

Six screenplays have been selected for The Storytellers — New Creative Voices of The Twilight Saga, a planned series of short films based on characters from the Twilight universe that will be released on Facebook, according to THR.

The criteria for the scripts, which were chosen by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, Lionsgate, Women In Film, Facebook, and Volvo, were that each one had to center on one character from The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide in a story set before Bella Swan (played by Kristen Stewart in the films) arrived in Forks, WA, where the Cullen vampire clan resides; also, the screenwriters had to be female and at least 13 years old.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

The finale of any long-running movie franchise feels so incomplete without having a studio run some sort of special movie marathon. Think of it as the penultimate event before you wave farewell to a beloved story, well that is until a studio reboots it. So like The Lord of the Rings, or The Avengers, The Twilight Saga is getting its very own movie marathon before the showing of the final chapter of the film franchise.

And like most movie marathons, this one will be shown one day before the official release of the final film. The Twilight Saga is made up of five films, which were adapted from four books. The fourth and final book was adapted into two parts.

Summit Says ‘The Twilight Saga’ Will Not Be Rebooted

The Twilight Saga

A while back when Lionsgate acquired Summit Entertainment, it was revealed in completely unsurprising fashion that a reboot of their mega-hit Twilight Saga franchise was a very real possibility.

Everyone else seems to be insta-booting their blockbuster-caliber properties—after successful and unsuccessful attempts alike—so it makes plenty of sense for Lionsgate to want to keep milking as much money out of Twilight as they can. And with their two-part adaptation of the final book in the Stephenie Meyer book series, Breaking Dawn, set close things out this coming fall season, the options were to reboot everything and start from scratch or wait for Meyer to write inevitable future installments.

Now, according to Lionsgate co-chairman Rob Friedman, it could be the latter instead of the former that the suits are leaning toward.

Lionsgate Acquires Summit Entertainment; Hints At More ‘Twilight Saga’

The Twilight Saga

It was announced Friday that Lionsgate had completed an acquisition of Summit Entertainment for a grand total of $412.5 million. And while that sounds like a lot of coin, the purchase comes with a little franchise called The Twilight Saga, which has already inexplicably brought in over $2.5 BILLION in worldwide box office…as we can only look on, stunned, shaking our heads.

The one great thing (for said stunned head-shaking public, anyway) about The Twilight Saga was the fact that we knew that after they drew it out as long as possible and milked every penny they could out of their fans, it would be done and over with. Such a silly thing for us to hope for.
