Summit Entertainment’s Twilight Saga is indeed a series of five vampire-themed romantic fantasy movies based on author Stephenie Meyer’s four books. Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, as well as Taylor Lautner star inside the flicks. The series has made more than $3.4 billion throughout the world. Twilight Saga became published on November 21, 2008, as the very first episode. On November 20, 2009, the second chapter, New Moon, was released, shattering box office records as that of the largest midnight screening as well as an opening day in history, making an estimated $72.7 million. Eclipse, its third episode, was released on June 30, 2010, and became the first film in the series to be seen in IMAX.
The series has been in the works at Paramount Pictures until 2004, during which time a movie version of Twilight was written which departed considerably from the novel. Summit Entertainment bought the movie’s rights three years later. Summit Entertainment stated that they might start filming on New Moon when Twilight made $35.7 million on its own opening day; it has bought the rights to the additional novels earlier last month. Breaking Dawn: Part 2 started filming in November 2010 and would be published on November 18, 2011, as well as November 16, 2012, simultaneously.
Twilight had been in production at Paramount Pictures’ MTV Films for around three years, however, during the time a movie adaptation was created that differed greatly from the novel. The screenplay, for example, changed Bella into such a professional athlete.
‘They might have put a certain film version out, called it something other than, and no one had known this was Twilight!” Stephenie Meyer said that there was debate about letting the movie also be made because of negative or positive results of the film compared to a book, ‘”They could have put that movie out, called it something else, and no one would have known it was Twilight!” Meyer decided to sell the rights after witnessing a scene, notably the meadow scene, transformed appropriately.
