Finally November 21, 2008 is here and TWILIGHT is finally at a theatre near you. I get goose bumps just thinking that this is going to be massive and everyone will be caught with a vampire bug. A lot of people now expect Twilight to take $70m (£47m) in a blockbuster opening weekend that will turn it into the biggest new release since The Dark Knight, creating one of the most successful series of teenage films of all time. I wonder how those executives over at MTV films, Fox, and Paramount Pictures feels right now? They may be wishing that vampire is real and would gladly have their neck bitten over their idiocy for turning it down. And more good news is that fandango.com have been selling five Twilight tickets per second on opening day and reporting that they sold out of 1,000 midnight shows Thursday and reports that the PG-13 romance has become their #3 Advance Ticket Seller, ahead of all Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Pirates movies and trailing only The Dark Knight and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. And I’m not reading any movie reviews, it’s enough for me that Stephenie Meyer loves it.
