Visit our sites for updates as regards news and promotions for the upcoming film (there are a lot in store for us Twilighters!). We will appreciate it if you will post a link to direct your readers/members in our site to keep them updated. Thanks. :)
UPDATE (Aug. 27, 9:07AM Local Time) : We've been watching the comments since we posted this announcement a couple of days ago. And while we're happy that so many Twilighters have come out of the woodwork to say that they're happy (or not) with this announcement, we are also saddened that so many people have been posting disparaging comments about the Philippines and some have just been outright rude.
We would like to clarify that Twilight Coven Philippines did not decide to release "Twilight" one day earlier in the Philippines -- no fan community has that power. It is the decision of the local distributor of the film. We're just relaying the information for all the Filipino Twilighters out there.
Also, instances of movies being released here earlier than in North America are not entirely new. It has happened for many movies in the past (even for a movie like "Harry Potter") because our theaters generally open new movies on Wednesdays, and not Fridays like in the U.S. Recently, most local distributors opt to open 1-2 days earlier or "day and date" (same date) of the North American release.
We hope that all of you will keep this in mind before commenting. We would like to keep the comments open for everyone, so please be nice to the other people in the community. If you feel the need to comment on the post or to a previous comment, please post your message only once. We have had to delete a really really long comment that only had the words "UNFAIR!!!" written several times. This same really really long one-word comment was posted 4 times along with another set of comments pasted over and over again. Post once, and we'll get your point, okay? :) The screencaps of the Blogger notifications for the deleted comments are pasted below for everyone's reference (click the thumbnails to expand).
