Question: How do you maximise your profits on a franchise that is worth billions but is limited to one book?
Answer: That’s right, you split said book into two movies!
Twilight New Moon is smashing records all over the place because it’s fan base are that of young teenagers (and my wife!) who will go and see Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner (and Krsiten Stewart?!) take their shirt off as many times as Summit can fit into a movie. News is leaking today that Summit Entertainment are considering turning Breaking Dawn, the fourth installment of the Twilight Series into two parts, much like that of the final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. New Moon has currently made around $481m worldwide and it’s only been out two weeks! Can you blame Summit for trying to extend this success as long as possible? I sure can’t.
