There’s no denying it…
The TWILIGHT saga has been hugely successful with its fan base.
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.
