I understand the reason that Summit Entertainment is doing it, I just wish they didn’t. The news has broke that the mega hit from 2008, Twilight is being re-released in theaters for a one night only showing. MovieTickets.com reports that there are already hundreds of different sold out shows for this showing. That means big bucks for Summit as the two movies will be showing back to back on Nov. 19 and 20. The original press release states:
“Responding to the fans of THE TWILIGHT SAGA, Summit Entertainment announced today that it will re-release TWILIGHT, the first film in the franchise, at select theatres nationwide on November 19th, a day before the highly anticipated release of the movie’s sequel, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON. Despite the first film already being on DVD, fans across the nation have been calling out to see the film once again on the big screen and the studio is honoring their request.
Summit is working with exhibitors to screen TWILIGHT one night only with screenings in the evening just before THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON arrives in theatres. Select theatres will offer tickets at a reduced price.”
Can you handle this much of the Twilight saga in one week?
