Twilight Film New Official Philippine Release Date: November 21

We have just been informed by Viva International Pictures, the local distributors of Twilight in the Philippines, that they have changed the release date of the film from November 20 to November 21 to conform with the new U.S. release date.   See the official press release below:
DISCOVER A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME LOVE STORY AS “TWILIGHT” OPENS ON NOVEMBER 21

Get ready to be bitten by the phenomenon that’s taking the world by storm with the much-awaited opening of the movie TWILIGHT on November 21. Based on the worldwide bestselling book series by Stephenie Meyer, TWILIGHT is an action-packed, modern day love story between a teen-aged girl who falls in love with a “good” vampire. Now, he must protect her from the “bad” vampires while resisting his natural instincts. TWILIGHT stars Kristen Stewart (Fierce People, Into the Wild) as the peculiar yet fascinating BELLA SWAN and Robert Pattinson (Harry Potter series) as the enigmatic vampire EDWARD CULLEN.

In TWILIGHT, Bella has always been a little bit different, never caring about fitting in with the trendy girls at her Phoenix high school. When her mother remarries and sends Bella to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she doesn't expect much of anything to change. Then she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward, a boy unlike any she's ever met. Intelligent and witty, he sees straight into her soul. Soon, Bella and Edward are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance. Edward can run faster than a mountain lion, he can stop a moving car with his bare hands -- and he hasn't aged since 1918. Like all vampires, he's immortal. But he doesn't have fangs, and he doesn't drink human blood; Edward and his family are unique among vampires in their lifestyle choice. To Edward, Bella is that thing he has waited 90 years for – a soul mate. But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy. But what will Edward & Bella do when JAMES (Cam Gigandet), LAURENT (Edi Gathegi) and VICTORIA (Rachelle Lefevre), the Cullens' mortal vampire enemies, come to town, looking for her?

TWILIGHT also stars Taylor Lautner as the friendly and equally good looking JACOB BLACK, Billy Burke as Bella’s father CHARLIE SWAN, Peter Facinelli as DR. CARLISLE CULLEN, Elizabeth Reaser as ESME CULLEN, Ashley Greene as ALICE CULLEN, Kellan Lutz as EMMETT CULLEN, Nikki Reed as ROSALIE HALE, and Jackson Rathbone as JASPER HALE.

Fans of the book are ecstatic and eager to see the novel-turned-movie reportedly with over 5.5 million books in print and the current #1 New York Times Bestselling series. Over 100 fan sites are devoted to TWILIGHT. Critically acclaimed director Catherine Hardwicke (Lords of Dogtown) brings to life this modern, visual, and visceral Romeo & Juliet story of the ultimate forbidden love affair – between vampire and mortal.

The heavily-anticipated opening of the movie has definitely gotten fans all over the world excited. Catch this love story with a bite as TWILIGHT opens on November 21 at your favorite theaters. A Viva International Pictures offering.

Viva's website has also been updated.

Beyond what is said in this post, TCP is not privy to any further details regarding the change in date.   As we did when we were informed of the November 20 release date, we are only reporting what is being relayed to us by Viva.

    SARU: Apparently, that's the back story in the movie. This is the same summary as the one on the Summit Entertainment website.

    well then if they're moving the release date so they could conform with the american release date, we should have a premiere on the 17th too. :(

  6. Clair de Lune said...
     

    MEI: Not necessarily. The premiere on the 17th in the US is the Red Carpet one with all the stars. We have no word yet regarding Advance Screenings.

    it's like the story of "the covenant" with one immortal good looking guy falling for a mortal girl

    OMG. . endi nq mkpagantay!.. .

    w8, btw, ung tatlong vampires(laurent,james and victoria) are not mortal enemies of the cullens. . bale related lang kay alice ung james. . and they're supposedly only passing by because they heard the sounds the cullens made while playing baseball. .

    that's based in the book anyway, peo im not surprised about the alterations. .
