The Twilight Saga – Most Popular Film of the Year

Obsessive Twilight fans have become quite common as the release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse nears. The release of Eclipse on June 30th is expected to be one of the highest grossing films of the year, and easily the highest grossing of The Twilight Saga thus far. Twilight fans everywhere are lining up early for their chance to earn tickets to the June 29th midnight showing. Unlike other midnight premiers, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has been sold out for over a month – that’s nearly two month before the premier of the movie!

The second film, The Twilight Saga: New Moon brought a whole new perspective for Twilight fans everywhere. The split support between Edward Cullen and Taylor Lautner’s character, Jacob Black, has not only created an even larger Twilight fan base, but an ongoing debate between Twilight fans. The rise of “Team Edward” and “Team Jacob” has given a great deal of hype clouding the upcoming release of Twilight. These two “teams” have turned into national clubs, each launching their own websites, as well as “team specific” merchandise.

The popularity of Twilight has reached lengths that 99.9% of movies will never reach. With two more feature films hitting theatres in a few years, The Twilight Saga is expected to be one of the highest grossing all time, competing with The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars films.

Twilight has not only seen success in the cinema, but also with the official merchandise line. “Team Edward” and “Team Jacob” apparel have already brought in more revenue than all other jewelry and clothing combined.

With the success already seen in the first half of The Twilight Saga releases, it is clear that the film adaptation of Stephanie Myers’ third novel may be the most popular of the year. Join the Twilight movement that millions are raving about – start by viewing Eclipse when it premiers on June 30th!
