Twilight movie release date for the Philippines confirmed!

UPDATE (Sept. 16) -- The release date has changed to November 21.  Details here.

---

It's official! Viva International Pictures has just confirmed with Twilight Coven Philippines that the Philippine release of the "Twilight" film will be on November 20, 2008.

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).

    that's why they are trying to let us know that it's going to be shown on November 20 since Harry Potter and the HBP is moving it's play date next year.

    Thanks for the info TCP! :) Looking forward to the showing of twilight.

    but why would you get it before the states when you usually get yours months after us

    Hello, this news post is from the local distributor of the film in our country, in relation to Summit Entertainment's decision to move the Twilight release date earlier due to Harry Potter's release being moved to 2009. You can find Summit Entertainment's press release on their site: http://www.summit-ent.com/

    Jan. 8 was the initial release date for the Phils. and as the above report is quite new, we suspect most other sites have yet to update their information.

    This actually isn't something new to the Philippines - in previous years, movies like Spiderman 2, Transformers, and some of the Harry Potter movies have been released a day or so earlier in our country, for reasons we're not aware of.

    We'll keep you guys posted if we know anything else Twilight-movie related for the Philippines. :)

  35. Anonymous said...
     

    @amala:

    actually, the change has more to do with the general change to a November release date. i think if Summit Entertainment stuck with the original December 12 release, the local distributor here would still probably opt to release it on the first week of January because of MMFF.

    so if there wasn't an MMFF, they would show it around the same time as the rest of the world, as usual.

    i'm not sure if the petitions actually work (in our country's case that is), but I hope the U.K. gets a similar release date as well. two months(?) is a LONG time to wait. :(

  36. Marie said...
     

    the distributors from other countries probably haven't decided on playdates yet. please be patient.

    also, we're naturally 12 hours ahead of the western hemisphere, so even if we get it on the 21st of november, we'd still be ahead.

    this has really never been an issue before. we are not gloating about it. we're just very happy it happened because when it all comes down to it everyone is still a fan. we're not MORE of a fanbase or LESS of a fanbase. we're just fans, period. i really wish people wouldn't make mountains over a simple issue as a movie release. we've all read the book. we all know how the movie ends. there's nothing to spoil.

    personally, considering that most movies open here on a wednesday and not on a weekend, showing it on the 20th (a thursday) is actually a compromise.

  37. Anonymous said...
     

    the official release date is nov. 21 not nov.20 and if ur in the US or Canada that is a 2 day ahead!!!! now explain to me that that isn’t unfair?

    this is so freaking unfair!!! it would be better if we could all get to watch the same movie together..NOT AHEAD!!!

    I even signed the petition for philippines, because I care for my fellow twilighters. But now its overdone and ruined!!!


    and also because there’s not that much twilighters in the philippines..there’s probably only about less than 5 thousand,,,that isn’t a big number when you compare it to north america!!

    they have crappy cinemas in philippines anyways…and we got to see it here in north america in high resolution and IMAX(considering its really expensive in philippines)

    so what can I say?

    enjoy the movie filipinos!!

  38. Anonymous said...
     

    OMG! WTF?!

    This is freaking great!!!

    Just the move of the release date from December 12 to November 21 is great. And now, they're showing it here in the Philippines as early as NOVEMBER 20!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can't stop cheering and screaming and laugh and cry!! I'm so hilarious...

    HOORAY TWILIGHTERS!!!

    Guess what? November 20 is the birthday of my Kuya Jawe and as soon as I have read about the movie release here in the Philippines, I immediately greeted him! And he was like "Huh?". He can't understand why I'm greeting him so early. Hahaha!!!

    No. YOU are wrong. I'm at Las Vegas right now (same time zone as California) and the Philippines is about 16 hours ahead of us. So they're getting it ALMOST TWO DAYS earlier.

    oh gooodness!!!

  43. PolicemanWolf said...
     

    Um, seriously, what's to spoil?

    Why get all upset saying its unfair? What's your basis for saying its unfair? Is it because you THINK we have less fans than you do? We probably do, but that doesn't mean you can judge us and say its "unfair", because like it or not, what's done has been done.

    Unless you have a magic wand that can distort time and space, but i doubt it.

    Anyway, bottom line is, we're all going to watch it anyway. So what's the point of the public banter? I see no point, but correct me if I'm wrong, please do.

  45. lin17 said...
     

    To all those who are giving negative comments, you now feel what we felt when the initial release was Dec. 12 and Jan. 8 for us. It's not a big deal if we are ahead for only a day. When it was still on the first release date, we will have to wait for almost a month. That's what you call UNFAIR! Pls. don't be selfish. It did not also happen to Twilight only. Almost all of the movies are released here a day earlier.

  46. Rachel said...
     

    People, some of you need to CALM DOWN. Ok, so they're getting the movie 1 and a half days before us. Thats cool for them. Imagine some countries, take, for instance, Venezuela. The movie doesn't release until MARCH in Venezuela. So Venezuelans have to wait like 4 months to watch the movie. By the time they get it in theaters, it'll likely be on DVD here in America already. Is waiting 1.5 extra days after it's released in the Philippines that big a deal, when you put it in perspective? And besides, would you rather get it on November 21st or December 12th?

  47. jonas♥cullen♥ said...
     

    oh yeah. haha. I'm going to watch this on it's first showing:)) though there are classes. But still, there's a mall near San Beda-so weee! [random much?:P]

    anyway, to the person who commented here that keeps on saying that it's unfair AND bashed us Filipinos-may God bless you:)

    This is crap! For a matter of day or two, you'll react like that? AND tell us that we have "crappy" cinemas and brag that when twilight shows there it would be on IMAX and here it probably wouldn't, ugh. You don't even know us Filipinos to judge us like that. Sheesh.

    OH WAIT, I get it. So in short, if twilight would be released in US first-and not by a day or two-that would be fair! oh know, I get the knowledge. ha ha. Marvelous. Just because USA is ahead most of the time, doesn't mean we can't get it earlier than yours. Nakooo:))

    if you want to watch it earlier-then go here. We'd be happy to welcome you oh so much! If you want, I can welcome you myself and even tour you to our beautiful and breath-taking country. Would you like to??:D

    ps: Though our country isn't that rich like yours, doesn't mean you can step down on us. Because we're better than you think. If you want to complain, then complain to the people in your country, not a foreign country!:D
    oh and yeah, our prayers did it, so don't be mad. You just pray and maybe you'll get to watch it on Nov. 19.

    Good luck to you nalang!
    Mabuhay ka:!:)

    hey guys!! Do you know how long I've been searching for a Filipino-base Twilight site? Now, I finally found it, thanks to Twilightlexicon...hahaha...i guess i just wanted to know if there are many fans of the phenomenal saga in the Phils, my home country...yeah, i'm Filipino but currently living in Aus. ...you could say i'm a globe-trotter...hehe...sort of...

    but holy sugar honey ice tea....you guys are soooo dang lucky....the movie is gonna be released there in Nov. while i have to wait until freakin' Dec. here!! you guys rock...wish we are getting it earlier...

    oh question, are there any Harry P. and Twilight fans out here? just curious...cheers!!

    Hi, in response to amala's comment, this move is purely the distributor's decision based on Summit's new date.

  50. Endoh Chiaki said...
     

    thanks TCP for this rockin' update!

    my gash!!! YES!!! this is so awesome! i freaked out when I found out it was to be released here in January but now its a day(hours actually) earlier than the intended release! this is sooo nice

    but its kinda annoying that SOME guys in the US are taking it so negatively... its just a few hours... spares us... really T_T

    America and Canada may have the biggest fan base but it still doesn't change the fact that there are still fans here in the Philippines... big or small, we're still fans like you guys

    peace please... lets all just be happy Twilighters around the globe... they already made the Twilight release a month early, why cant we all just be satisfied?

    I'm an American and I just wanted to say SORRY for the people who were complaining and being mean about the fact that all of you over in the Philippines get the movie two days earlier than us. I hope they didn't give you a negative impression of the rest of us. I'm happy for the Filipinos that the release date is earlier for you and a couple of days really isn't a big deal as compared to a couple of months. I hope you all enjoy the movie...I know I will! :)

    Omigawd I kept thinking "Is THIS for real?" and then HURRAH~ It's only a month or so to go before I see Kellan Lutz (Emmett) and the very down-to-Earth Taylor Lautner (Jake) in the film~ guys who are planning to cosplay while watching the movie yesh I am so fan gurling~ maybe I'll just wear a black shirt and hold an apple XD that would be hilarious~ XD

    what i've been trying to ask is, WHY THE PHILIPPINES? its in no way trying to be rude or bitter. but why is the philippines the only country that gets it as early[earlier] than the US. NO ONE else is getting it even the same day as the US. the next release date is December in Australia. i wouldnt have a problem if it was the general release date for the whole world. thats all ive been trying to say in my posts

  59. Jaguar2552 said...
     

    You're welcome, marie and endoh chiaki! I just don't understand why people are so angry over this.

    To "Anonymous," I'm not really sure which posts were yours because, well...you're anonymous. And other people leave anonymous posts too. But some people did write some really bitter comments on here. Like this: "...there’s not that much twilighters in the philippines..there’s probably only about less than 5 thousand,,,that isn’t a big number when you compare it to north america!! they have crappy cinemas in philippines anyways…and we got to see it here in north america in high resolution and IMAX"

    Comments like that just come across as immature and rude. And if that anonymous poster was right in saying that there are less than 5,000 Twilighters in the Philippines (which may or may not be true), then seriously who cares if they get the movie sooner than us? It's not like a significantly larger number of people will see it before the U.S. And anyway, us Americans usually get many movies months before other countries in the world do. So now we'll just be experiencing how other countries feel. But barely, because IT'S ONLY TWO DAYS of a differnce.

    I am as excited to see the movie as much as the next Twilight fan. I have been waiting for it since even before there was a definite project, but I don't think waiting an extra two days will kill me. And at least our November 21st date beats the old December 12th date, right?

  60. Jaguar2552 said...
     

    Oh and sorry that my last comment was a bit long. I sometimes get carried away, haha. :)

  61. echo said...
     

    Thank you Jaguar2552, that was very comforting...

    From what I understand, the new release date of Nov. 20 here in the Philippines was made official just last Sunday. Twilight Coven Philippines, having had talks with Viva International, Summit Entertainment's local partner, posted the news first after being given the news by Viva.

    As of now, though, we're still unaware if the other countries' distributors have decided on their new release date. Because, as far as I can tell, no news lurk in the web about their updates. Even IMDB isn't updated, with the Philippine release still on January 8.

    I'm doing this to erase all doubts on the authenticity of this news, for the moderators and my friends here in the coven.

    Perhaps this will comfort some people commenting here, Nov. 20 is a Thursday. People here in the Philippines are busy at work and school on weekdays, with all the homeworks and papers to finish. Though some people may find the time to sneak to a cinema, most fans would only be able to watch it on the weekend, which incidentally falls on the same day as the US release. That comforting enough?

    This might be because we are near indonesia/malaysia/china where the supposed piracy is taking place. I guess this is one factor they're looking at.
    We all know that no matter how late a movie is shown here in the philippines, a week or a few days after the initial release there'd be pirated dvd on almost every sidewalk.

    Correction: This year, it seems that movies are released on thursdays instead of last year's wednesdays. (ex Batman was released last july 17, which is a thursday)

    heyy. Sorry for my sort of rude comment up there, just got carried away:)

    anyway to 'anonymous' [you know who i'm talking about] are you the one who wrote the "WHY THE PHILIPPINES?" comment a bit up? because if that's also you-sorry:)

    but still, I don't like the 'less than 5000 twilighters' and the 'crappy cinemas' w/ yours as imax something. Just pointing out:D
    just don't say something harsh about my country because i'll get somewhat pissed..

    thanks TCP! Btw, any plans of having a get together with other Filipino twilighters before the movie? Okay, I know it's way too early for that. Just kind of excited you know. Hehe. Thanks for the good news, I already blogged about it on my site..:)

    For jaguar2552: thank goodness there are people like you who just want everyone to be happy!

    And I totally agree with TCP about movies being shown early in the Philippines than in US or Canada. Case in point is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix which I watched in IMAX on July 11, 2007 -- 2 days earlier than US/Can release of July 13, 2007. Earlier release dates are dependent with the local distributors. It doesn't hurt also to point that piracy can be a problem if you're trying to release any film. I mean, I even saw pirated copies of The Dark Knight even if the film wasn't released yet. Despite the temptation, I still went to the cinema to watch. Nothing beats seeing a movie on a big screen so definitely I'll be hitting the cinemas for Twilight. Pinoy Twilighters, I think a big thank you is in order for Viva, don't you think? :)

    Looking forward to your next events TCP... Missed the book discussion because I had to work. :(

    I really laughed at fahrenheit's post! XD

    As for those who asked WHY the Philippines, I don't know either. All I know is this:

    The date didn't choose us.

    We (or the local film distributors in our country, for this matter) chose the date.

    Correct me if I'm wrong. PLEASE DO. :)

    HOLY CROW! (Haha, quoting Bella)
    You guys just made my night.
    Even though it's posted last Aug 24, this won't stop me from exclaiming joy that Twlight will be released here on NOVEMBUH!!! :D :D :D

    BTW, is there a superduper special moviehouse that would be interviewed by the media, if in case? If so, would it be Megamall still or IMAX in Mall of Asia? Heheh. I'm blabbing, aren't I?

    Still gleeful. :)

  81. Hanban loves Jacob said...
     

    And to all those ignorant foreigners (not only foolish Americans)---

    TWO. DAYS. EARLIER. HAHAHA. WE ALSO HAVE IMAX HERE, THANKYOUVERYMUCH.

    And you're welcome to come here to watch with us, but don't let our shrieking get in the way of you watching the movie. ;)

    I'll be cutting classes on the 20th of Novembuh, yeah. :p

    i've been waiting for JANUARY since SUMMER! that's THEN..


    now, i'm waiting for NOVEMBER! and i can't take it much longer!

    the news have been bugging me the whole day. i just can't believe it!! US earlier than US? haha. i mean, the movie would be shown earlier here in the Philippines than US? mmm. but reading all these, all i can say is.. THANK GOD FOR LITTLE MERCY! and to those crap foolish stupid doomed people who are saying the whole thing is unfair,

    behlat! :P

    oh well. ika nga, "weather-weather lang yan!" hahaha. bobo-joes! ampotek.

    ..love love love EDWARD CULLEN!

  84. hunnyjodi said...
     

    No wonder I've been so distracted and keep thinking about the movie...

    OH, BLISS!!!

    THANK YOU!

    And to ANONYMOUS who keeps asking why we get to see it first....

    WHY NOT THE PHILIPPINES?!

    Let's just all be thankful that it'll be shown on an earlier date than it was originally scheduled. It's not like Stephenie Meyer and the cast of the movie will come here to the premiere (Although I think it'd be pretty cool too!)! Take a chill pill. XD

    -Oh, I'm new here to TCP.
    and I love Edward Cullen! *swoon*

    pots: thank you for the support! credit is due to our local distributor, we're just relaying what has been informed to us by Viva :) we all just gave them an idea on how we are all anticipating the movie, but the move is purely the distributor's. thanks!

    It's not like we don't know how it's gonna end. New movies have always been shown on Wednesdays in the Philippines, that's the way it is so deal with it.

    But if you must, blame the Philippines for being some obscure country who doesn't deserve getting their movies ahead of anybody white.

    Jeez, some of you need to get a life.

    i'm confused. it says on imdb that it's going to be shown next year that is january 6, 2009. here's the link http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1099212/releaseinfo

  96. stargirlcullen said...
     

    Okay thanks! I'm happy now :D

    and To Jaguar2552 its sweet that you said sorry.. at least one person isnt saying bad things about my country.

    The point is we all get to watch the movie, we know the story we know how it ends. Its just offensive when you say crap about us, we know that our country isnt that great, heck we come from a third world country but that doesnt give you or anyone for that matter the right to be bitter and say bad things towards us, Filipinos. We love Twilight just as much as you do. No one is the "superior twilight fan" we are just all fans who love it.

    We didnt even expect this to happen at all. So guys chill.

  97. CullenGirl said...
     

    yey! :D
    Oh yeah, we get some movies earlier, we also get some movies later. sometimes even much later, but do we complain?

    And the book, Breaking Dawn was released here two days after the release date in north america. but we waited.

    Anyways don't give us crap about it, we didnt pick that date, we didnt force anyone, why hate us filipinos for it? i may complain about my country, i may say its crappy, fine my country isnt so rich and developed but that doesn't give you other people the right to say those mean things.

    We all will watch it okay? no one will miss out on anything. besides will you like it IF I said those crappy things about YOUR country?

    I didn't think so.

    and I agree with "Resident" we get it all from prayers! :D

  98. Hanban loves Jacob said...
     

    To CullenGirl: Are you visiting the site FictionPress.com? If so, then you're the one I'm seeing that's being thanked by Hotcheri! :) I love that story too. Though for some weird reason, I couldn't remember the title. :p

    Oh yeah. GOOD GIRL GOING CRAZY.

    Cheorva kayong mga Kano. Mapuputi lang kayo eh. At least kami makulay. BWAHAHA.

    Dammit Edward Cullen! Why can't you be real?! And where's my Jacob Black?! Kill Bella Swan. >:)

    Hi, IMDB has just updated its release info page for Twilight: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1099212/releaseinfo

  101. Anne Beatrice said...
     

    Yeah, this isnt the first time that we'd be releasing earlier. I worked before as an intern in Warner Brothers and they also released spiderman 3 a day earlier in the states. and superman returns too. it was shown here earlier.

    good thing we dont have to wait till January

    WHEW!

    behold the twilighters!

    wwooooo!

    if we are a day earlier i think that's because our time is earlier that theirs...?

    i dunno..LOL!

    im happy for all the twilighters!

    please pray that i will beat HP!

  110. camil said...
     

    How was it that unfair? We only get to see the movie earlier, it would still be the same movie to be released in other countries, it's not like we Filipinos get to see a special version of the movie. I mean, really, it's not much of a big deal.

    Anyway, I honestly didnt expect that Philippines has this huge fanbase for Twilight. We're all so hooked, twilight spreads all over the country. So I think SE noticed this movement. That's why we get to have the movie released this year.

    Btw, is twilight going to be aired in all major theatres? Or only Ayala malls?

    Heh, and I thought the movie will still be released on december 12.

    Who cares about who'll watch the movie first anyway.. We'll all be able to watch it eventually.

    This is life. Complaining will only get you a sore throat.

    but will the Nov.20 movie release date be nationwide? especially here in Mindanao...

  121. Twilight Coven Philippines said...
     

    hi, we've updated the post and the movie release is set for Nov. 21

    we will confirm with Viva if it's a nationwide release on Nov. 21 but it will be released in all major cinemas on that day

  122. twilight rocks:D said...
     

    for those who are asking why do we get it a day earlier than US?well,we're just lucky.hahaha.if u're thinking that its kinda unfair for americans and canadians.ghad,eventhough US and Canada have the biggest fan base, we are also a big fan of this phenomenal movie no.so just accept the fact that philippines got it a day earlier than US.cant wait to see it on theater. IMAX is not that expensive anyways and FYI:we didnt have crappy cinemas no.so back off anonymous whoever you are.

    HOORAY TCP:cant wait to see this on theater:D

    Were you guys able to see the cafeteria scene between Edward and Bella? You can definitely see the Philippine flag in the background. AND, in the first book (when Bella was researching about vampires on the internet) there was something about a Filipino Danag (or was it Dayag) which were sort of one of the earliest vampires. Did anyone notice that too?

    And this might not make sense to anyone else but, Robert Pattinson = RP = Republic of the Philippines.hahaha Well now that's just weird (and delusional?). Sorry for that. lol

    I'm just really happy that we could see the movie this year instead of next year. Please just be happy for us. =) And for my fellow Filipinos, see you on the 20th of November! ^^

    I just noticed that the earliest comment was from August pa and it's November na, is the November 20th date gonna push through or have they (Viva &/or Summit) changed their minds already? =)

  128. CARiZ said...
     

    November 26 na pala yung regular showing. =( I got too excited and didn't check everything else in the page.hahaha And to think I was all worked up already... Well at least 5 days lang ang difference. ^^

    GUYS. I JUST HEARD FROM THE RADIO. 99.5 RT. there IS an IMAX for the Twilight movie. but it's dated November 26. and REALLY rare tickets. so goodluck to us!

  130. Anonymous said...
     

    20 should be the showing date, but i guess the philippines is slow as usual.. i've watched the movie before the release date (26) via the net.. so there's no point watching it in cinemas now
