New ‘Twilight’ film opens country wide

2010-06-29 00:00

TWILIGHT fans will be heading to ­cinemas tomorrow to enjoy the third chapter of Stephanie Meyer’s successful vampire series The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at cinemas around the country. And here in Pietermaritzburg Twihards won’t miss out as ­CineCentre will be screening the film from June 30.

In the latest film, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a ­malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge.

In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for ­Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and her friendship with Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf.

While most of her high school friends are receiving college acceptances and sending graduation announcements, Bella is struggling with Edward’s request that she marry him before he agrees to be the one to change her into a vampire and the consequences that these choices will bring to herself, her family and her friends.

Meanwhile, an unexplained force has created an army of newly turned vampires whose strength, viciousness, and uncontrollable blood-lust is at its greatest in the first months of supernatural life. Are they a tool of Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) in her single-minded pursuit of vengeance, or of the all-powerful Volturi, making sure that Bella follows through on her intention to become immortal?

Based on Meyer’s bestselling book series, the Twilight novels and films have become a cultural phenomenon with a dedicated fan base that eagerly awaits each instalment.

In less than five years, Meyer has become a worldwide publishing phenomenon. The translation rights for the four novels in the The Twilight ­Saga have been sold in nearly 50 countries and 100-million copies have been sold worldwide. Her books have been on the bestseller list for over 142 weeks — and counting.
