‘Twilight’ Is Coming Back to Theaters to Celebrate Its 10th Anniversary
Twilight is coming back to theaters for a limited run.
It’s time to dust off that old Team Edward shirt — or Team Jacob if you swing that way (we don’t judge)!
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Twilight, the beloved vampire movie is returning to select theaters for a very limited run. The series will be coming to more than 450 theaters nationwide, and you’ll be able to catch screenings on Oct. 21 or Oct. 23, according to Fathom Events, who are making the special occasion possible.
As part of the “unforgettable experience” of seeing Twilight on the big screen nearly a decade later, fans will also be treated to an introduction by director Catherine Hardwicke and an exclusive sneak peak at a new special feature — “Twilight Tour… 10 Years Later” — not to mention, you'll also get to take home a poster to mark the special occasion, should you buy the ticket.
Screenings aren’t the only way to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the film, which will be officially celebrated on Nov. 21 — 10 years to the day that the movie was first released. As MTV first reported, Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment — the studio that created the movie — is re-releasing all five films with their own 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, which comes with a Blu-Ray, DVD, and digital copy of each film. Additionally, each flick with come with its own custom, collectible cover art to represent each of the movies within the saga and Bella and Edward’s love story.
During the past decade, there’s no denying the cultural impact that the franchise has had on the world — and it’s a legacy that the film’s leading lady, Kristen Stewart, told Interview Magazine she’s “f--king proud of.”
And she’s not the only one. In an interview with Time, Catherine Hardwicke opened up about having the film — which touched the lives of so many people — be such a huge part of her legacy.
“It touched so many people,” she said. “This is the first love of so many little girls I have met. The first time they ever had a crush. Edward will always be their first love. They are going to be 80-year-old women in the future that will remember Rob [Pattinson], love Edward Cullen, and remember Twilight.”
She gushed, “That’s kind of awesome.”
