What ever reason it is that’s causing these emo-pires to gaze so intensely into my soul, is beyond me. Their stares are so good, that they’re being awarded a sequel. From Deadline Hollywood:
“When your soundtrack isn’t even completed much less released (not until November 4th), yet it’s already in the Top 5 Best-Selling Albums on Amazon based on pre-sales alone, you know you have a hit. When Borders makes an exclusive calendar and sells out the first printing in a matter of days, you know you have a hit. And when the new trailer to your movie surpasses 3.5 million views less than 48 hours after its online debut, you know you have a hit. Which is why Summit Entertainment’s CEO Rob Friedman is already readying a Twilight sequel.
Twilight came in at only a $37 million negative cost. This notion of a low-cost blockbuster for a start-up studio just doesn’t happen often in the film biz. So if the movie lives up to the advance hype, Summit will be sitting on a big new franchise.”
Attention all other studios: Don’t bother releasing your projects. Twilight is going to destroy them, apparently. Man, it must be nice being a CEO. You gain the ability to see into the future. I so hope this movie fucking tanks. That’ll show ’em.
