The seventh episode of Star Wars wants to reach the largest possible number of theaters to beat a record, but actors Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson conquered the world with the third Twilight movie and are still unbeatable.
Yes, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), and the Twilight saga are a benchmark of a series of films that managed to haunt public. Both actors are now working in independent movies but they don’t regret their past: the most famous vampires in film history.
“Usually, at the end of a film it’s like I’ve finally gotten to know this person completely, and then we’re done. That actually happened on the set of ‘Twilight,’ and then it happened again on ‘New Moon.’ Each time my character Bella became a different person, and I got to know that person and take her to the next level.” Kristen Stewart.
The third Twilight movie reached about 4,400 theaters on its opening day in 2010 while Han Solo and company were only seen in about 4.100 cinemas. This difference of 300 cinemas is quite remarkable because Eclipse left the bar very high for other franchises that were to come.
Anyway, Star Wars is released in the winter season, while Twilight released his third film in summer, and Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson had the advantage of returning to the big screen in a time that normally achieve better results.
** Remember: Eclipse scored the biggest Wednesday opening in the United States and Canada history with $68,533,840 beating Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’s $62 million. Furthermore, it has become the movie with the widest independent release, playing in over 4,416 theaters, surpassing its predecessor, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which held the record since November 2009.
