“Twilight” just had its DVD launch and things are looking good for the teenage vampire drama.
Summit Entertainment said more than 3 million DVDs of its vampire-romance title jumped off store shelves over its first day. The first-day haul for “Twlight” came via an unusual Saturday launch as discs generally debut on Tuesdays.
The “Twilight” sales rank among the top five best-selling DVD titles of the past two years, execs said. The big DVD tally follows an outsized theatrical run for the first in a planned trio of pics based on the “Twlight” book series.
“Twilight” earned $373 million in worldwide boxoffice and 2 sequel have been announced. “New Moon,” set for Nov. 20, and “Eclipse,” is scheduled for June 30, 2010.
Edward and Bella must be very proud of themselves.
