SUMMIT ENTERTAINMENT MOVES UP RELEASE DATE FOR
TWILIGHT TO NOVEMBER 21, 2008

Los Angeles, CA August 15, 2008 - TWILIGHT, the
first film in Summit Entertainment's thriller
romance franchise, has moved up its North American
release date to Friday, November 21, 2008. The
film, which was previously planned to be released
on December, 12, 2008, is taking advantage of an
opening in the upcoming fall release calendar.
The new release date for TWILIGHT allows the
studio to both bring the film to the written-series'
enormous fan base sooner, and to present the film
in more theatres prior to the holiday movie-going
season where traditionally screen time for any
popular film is limited.

"When Warner Bros. decided to move HARRY POTTER
AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE to the summer of 2009,
we saw a unique opportunity to slot in our film
which has been gaining tremendous awareness and
momentum over the past several months," said Rob
Friedman, Co-Chairman and CEO of Summit
Entertainment. "We by no means are trying to fill
the shoes of the incredible POTTER franchise for
2008, rather we are just looking to bring the fans
of Stephenie Meyer's incredible book series the film
as soon possible from a programming perspective."

MTV is reporting that Twilight is taking Harry Potter’s vacated release date, moving up the release from December 12 to November 21! OME, happy birthday to me!

    Hiya! . Happy Thanksgiving!! .!! :) :)
    Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, and every year I like to get into the mood-extend the holiday, as it were-by reading “Thanksgiving novels.” For example, those stories are mostly about friends and family, about coming together to heal old hurts and showing thanks for the gift of love. … —–
