Though they’re not quite as prevalent as they once were, it wasn’t too long ago when the YA faze was sweeping over Hollywood, with every studio rushing to get their own franchise out the door in hopes of emulating the success that Warner Bros. found with Harry Potter. Admittedly, nothing was ever able to reach quite the same heights as the hit fantasy series, but a few properties came close. Namely, The Hunger Games and Twilight.
The latter, in particular, was wildly successful and brought us five installments before concluding in 2012. It wasn’t exactly loved by critics, but in terms of earning the big bucks for Lionsgate, it definitely delivered and as such, it’s no surprise that the studio is now bringing it back to theaters for its 10th anniversary.
That’s right, to celebrate the occasion, Fathom Events and Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment are inviting fans to return to Forks, Washington this October to catch Twilight on the big screen again. As the first title of the Fathom Spotlight series, which will “showcase contemporary blockbusters, modern classics and fan-favorite films back on the big screen including newly enhanced digital versions,” the film will be playing for two nights only.
“Twilight was a once-in-a-generation supernatural love story that became a pop-culture turning point for teens and teens-at-heart,” said Tom Lucas, Fathom Events VP of Studio Relations. “Fathom Events is thrilled to be celebrating the movie’s 10th anniversary with Summit Entertainment by presenting it on the big screen this October.”
Taking place in more than 450 theaters around the United States, you’ll be able to catch Twilight on Sunday, October 21, and Tuesday, October 23, at 2 pm and 7 pm (local time). Tickets can be purchased on the Fathom Events website and aside from just the movie, fans will also get an “introduction by director Catherine Hardwicke and an exclusive sneak peek of the brand-new special feature “Twilight Tour…10 Years Later,” from the upcoming Twilight 4K Ultra HD home entertainment release, available October 23, 2018.”
Not bad, eh? The only question that remains, is, will you be heading back to theaters to catch Twilight once again? Or have you had enough of the saga? Be sure to let us know by dropping a comment down below.
