The $35-million Twilight may be given the kind of treatment at the box office ordinarily reserved for films costing three or four times that amount midnight and Friday early-morning screenings. Summit entertainment has reportedly persuaded some of the major theater chains to add the wee-hour showings after online ticket sellers reported sold-out showtimes at hundreds of theaters for Friday-night screenings. "In the age of big, studio tentpole pictures, it's a surprise to find such encouragingly strong advance ticket sales for an independent film with no established box-office stars," Rick Butler, COO of online ticket seller Fandango told the Hollywood Reporter. On Monday night, some 600 screaming teenage girls packed a special holding area on each side of the red carpet at the Mann Village Theater in the Westwood area of Los Angeles to catch a glimpse of 22-year-old heartthrob Robert Pattison, the British actor who plays the vampire Edward in the movie. Others lined the sidewalk beyond, some holding hand-made signs.
The actor says he isn't "holding out for more money or doing anything like that".
The drama will be making its return to the streaming service in the near future.
