twilight re-released in theaters before new moon

The Twilight Saga: New Moon is scheduled to hit theaters on November 20th, and I’m sure many of the series die hard fans are counting down the seconds to when that day comes. Until then, the people over at Summit Entertainment have found another way to keep your anxiety at bay. According to the LATimes, the original Twilight film will be re-released in theaters for a limited time before the opening of New Moon.

Summit plans on releasing Twilight one last time in 2,000 theaters on November 19th. That’s right, the film will be shown the night prior to New Moon‘s theatrical debut. At the moment the official times are sketchy, but according to the executives in charge the studio is planning on Twilight being shown at 9:00 p.m. or 9:30 p.m. just prior to 12:01 a.m. Many of the theaters participating in this promotion will also have screenings of New Moon to follow, and a source close to the deal says “exhibitors are very high on the idea.”

Of course their high on this idea, it’s disposable income at their fingertips. This will allow them to make a good cushion of money on top of what’s already expected from New Moon. Can you imagine going to see Twilight and then walking over to another theater to see New Moon for the back to back effect? The idea scares me but it may be a dream come true for a lot of you out there.
