New Jack City: ‘Twi Hards’ Reshoot Update

There’s no denying it…
 
The TWILIGHT saga has been hugely successful with its fan base.
 
How successful?
 
The first Twilight back in 2008 had nearly $192,800,000 in domestic ticket sales.

One year later NEW MOON shattered the original’s take with a boxoffice total of $296,600,000 plus. Then
ECLIPSE during the summer of 2010 broke the $300 million mark.
 
And then came last year’s BREAKING DAWN-PART 1. Not only did it garner some of the worst reviews from the critics, but its boxoffice take fell to $281,287,000.
 
BREAKING DAWN 1 was directed by Bill Condon who’s also doing the franchise’s final chapter—BREAKING DAWN-PART 2—set for release on November 16th.
 
Read whatever you want into what follows.
 
Deadline Hollywood reports that Condon and some of the Twilighters are heading back to Vancouver for some reshoots, pick up shots and additional technical work.

Here’s part of what Condon posted on Facebook about his fine tuning of the final chapter:

"Our part two puzzle is finally coming into full view and in a few weeks we’ll be heading back north to pick up some additional shots—the last tiny missing pieces.
 
"We’re not shooting any new scenes or dialogue, just some technical work with some of our cast and stunt actors.
 
"Before too long we’ll have another trailer for you to decode. And wait until you see the first posters—they’re unlike any TWILIGHT images you’ve seen before…"
 
Should we be reading anything (serious) into the announced reshoots?

That would depend on whether you believe in black helicopters, I guess.

    Jack,
    I am very concerned and afraid over the news in this story. I think it signals the apocalypse, the 12 plagues of Egypt and the 2012 Mayan calendar end-of-the-world thingy all rolled into one. I fear this movie will open to a box office of about $12.00 – only one ticket sold to the one kid who doesn’t read this column.

    agree
    I’ve enjoyed the series from the start but agree that Breaking Dawn part 1 left a lot to be desired. Since Part 1 and 2 were filmed back to back, at least give director Bill Condon credit for trying to improve the final chapter.

    Is
    this crapfest over yet?

    Can you imagine how much money Stewart, Pattinson and the werewolf kid have made off this franchise? Those kids must all have $20+ million in the bank each. What a life it must be to be that young and rich.
