PostSubject: Twilight Takes Over The World   Wed Oct 15, 2008 11:42 am

Entertainment Weekly is planning yet another cover devoted to the movie “Twilight,” beating out James Bond and other heavyweights in the holiday movie preview.

Meanwhile, tickets sold out so fast for a screening of a 15-minute clip at the Rome International Film Festival later this month that another screening was added.

And now star Robert Pattinson ranks higher on IMDB’s Star Meter than Brad Pitt or Will Smith.

These are some of the fun facts released this week by Summit Entertainment, the studio behind “Twilight,” opening Nov. 21.

Here’s the studio’s complete list:

TWILIGHT has quickly become a huge worldwide phenomenon, developing a strong core base of dedicated fans who are drawn to the story of a Romeo & Juliet- style romance between a mortal (Bella) and a vampire (Edward).


Book Highlights:

The series of 4 books has sold over 17 million copies worldwide. Translation rights have been sold in 37 countries.

The series is a New York Times Best Seller and has been #1 for 47 weeks. Selected as the New York Times Editor’s Choice.

On USA Today’s Best Seller list for 96 weeks (TWILIGHT spent 6 weeks at #1).

BREAKING DAWN, the fourth book in the series and released on August 2, sold 1.3 million books in the first 24 hours.

For seven straight weeks after BREAKING DAWN was released, all four books in the series were on USA Today’s Top 5 Best Seller List.

The week BREAKING DAWN was released, TWILIGHT (released in 2005) had its best week ever and sold an additional 120,000 copies.

Online Highlights:

Recognition of the book has generated over 350 fan sites all over the world, including TwilightLexicon.com & TwilightMoms.com.

There were 14,314 online discussions within 123 communities about the film over the last two weeks ending in early October.

The official film website has received over 8 million visits, more than most film sites receive over the course of their life. Over 80% of the website’s registrants are between the ages of 13-24.

TWILIGHT is the 7th most searched movie on IMDb Pro’s MOVIEMeter (everything above it is already in theatres). Star Robert Pattinson is #5 on their STARMeter, ranking higher than Will Smith and Brad Pitt.

There was so much response to the TWILIGHT casting photos when they were initially posted, MTV.com’s server crashed. The response was very similar to in numbers to the likes of Harry Potter and Spider-Man franchises.

Since its release on MySpace’s Trailer Park, the first TWILIGHT teaser trailer has reached nearly four million views, comparable to Indiana Jones: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

When EntertainmentTonight.com posted the second teaser trailer on their website, they received more views than any of their breaking news stories.

In the first 3 days of TWILIGHT’s second teaser trailer in mid-July, it was streamed 1.6 million times. Yahoo! expressed that this is one of the top 5 most popular trailers outside of any “summer movie.”

The debut of the final trailer in the TWILIGHT widget and on MySpace Trailer Park on Thursday night, 10/16, generated over 3.5 million views in the first 48 hours, and will surpass the views of both the first and second teasers.

Publicity Highlights:

Fan base generated thunderous applause and worldwide publicity at Comic-con International – with thousands of eager fans camping out the night before to see the cast and crew present new footage.

The Entertainment Weekly TWILIGHT Saga cover was the best-selling cover of the year for them, surpassing their Dark Knight and Harry Potter covers.

The first EW cover was so successful, they’re putting TWILIGHT on the cover of their Holiday Movie Preview ver films like Quantum of Solace. It is rare for EW to feature the same film twice on their cover.

In late August, Extra aired their segment from Ashley Greene and Rachelle Lefevre’s H Magazine photo shoot, and it was the second-highest rated show in primetime, next to Ugly Betty. Additionally, they posted the segment to their website and got three times the traffic they get on the Jonas Brothers.

Vanity Fair will feature an entire cast spread in their December issue – one of over 50 magazine features on the film.

Ticket sales for the Rome International Film Festival sold out in a few hours, prompting festival organizers to add another screening. In Spain, over 1,000 screaming fans tried to get into a presentation at the Sitges Film Festival, more than 3 times the maximum occupancy.

Music Highlights:

After the soundtrack link was posted on Stephenie Meyer’s site, it shot up to #3 on Amazon (#1 in soundtracks) in less than 1 day…without a track list!!!

Paramore’s single “Decode” was streamed over 2 million times on Stephenie Meyer’s site, and has been streamed over 1.3 million times on MySpace

The single was shipped to radio on 10/6, and is already over 1.6 million in audience at alternative rock
As of Friday 10/10, “Decode” is approaching Top 40 after only 3 days at radio. It is the second-most added track on modern rock radio.

Yesss! I work at UPS and I handle international packages...well today I was processing packages of things purchased off of Amazon.com and most of the stuff were Twilight Books ...it was crazy The UK loves their Twilight! It made me excited to see how many books were being bought!

I hope this movie does well...cause I would love to see the success from this movie fuel them to do another one and so on...Visually these movies should rock and I pray this one does so well the others have to be made..to see my imagination come to life would be wonderful... & to see these beautiful guys in four movies would be a dream come true lol!



and it helps the success of these books by Wal-Mart selling the first two books for 8 & 7 Dollars...they pull you in by having the first two cheap and then you get so hooked you'll pay good money for the others!

We have two, but one of them is family owned and they get late releases that are getting ready to come out to dvd. The other one is big, sometimes they don't get some movies.
