Twilight: New Moon Opens on Friday
Well. It’s that time of year again.
After a lot of anticipation (even though the last movie came out barely a year ago), the second installment of the Twilight saga—based on the books by Stephanie Meyer—hits the theaters this Friday, November 20. To nobody’s surprise, the movie is already breaking records.
First of all, the movie premiered in Los Angeles on Monday—but, fans were already lined up for the chance to get a peek at the stars by Friday night. That’s insane. Who does that? These people literally camped out on the streets of Westwood just to see some ambiguous limos pull up to the theater on Monday night. I mean, I’ve waited a couple of hours before, but days?! No way.
The movie stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattison, and Taylor Lautner. It’s about teen vampires and werewolves, and one clumsy girl. I won’t give anything else away, I promise.
According to Variety, Twilight: New Moon will make record-breaking openings. It has already sold out over 2000 showings, and is expected to pass the $80 million mark in the first weekend. I will inevitably keep you posted on how well this vampire movie does in the box office. Look for a post on Monday about its performance this weekend!
Will you be seeing the movie?
