UPDATED (scroll to end of post): Viva Video has announced that Twilight will be released in home video formats here in the Philippines on March 21.

No. 1 romantic movie “Twilight” available soon on video

TWILIGHT, the blockbuster love story of 2008, will soon be available on video. TWILIGHT aficionados definitely have something to look forward to from the DVD release as it is packed with special features and Twilight collectible cards.

TWILIGHT, a Romeo & Juliet-style story of the ultimate forbidden love affair – between vampire and mortal, is based on the bestselling book series by Stephenie Meyer. It ruled worldwide box office charts and in the Philippines alone, sales of the movie reached over P200 million, a feat so huge that the film was named the No. 1 love story since Titanic.

The TWILIGHT video is one collectors’ item every fan young and old must own. Directed by Catherine Hardwicke and starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Billy Burke, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Nikki Reed, Ashley Green, Jackson Rathbone, Kellan Lutz, Cam Gigandet, Edi Gathegi and Rachelle Lefevre, TWILIGHT will be available on DVD and VCD.

Viva Video has not released pricing information yet, so please don't keep asking us how much the DVDs are because we don't know either. :) According to them, they are still ironing out a few more details. They also haven't released photos of the Collector's Edition DVD and the Jewelry Box Set. We don't know if they're talking about the NECA Jewelry Set, in fact, we don't know what exactly the Jewelry Box set is yet. This is all the information we have for now. We will post additional details as soon as we have them.

UPDATE (2/20): For those who are asking if there will be a Blu-Ray version to be released locally, Viva Video says there won't be, at least for now. For those who want to get a Blu-Ray Disc, you can order them at Best Buy or Target ($29.99 plus shipping) in the U.S., where it will be released on March 21, or you can wait for it to be available from other retailers starting May 5. If you have a lot of money to spare ($80 plus shipping), check out the Amazon Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-Ray Set, which coincidentally also has a Jewelry Box, available starting May 5. It's possible this is similar to the one that will be in the Collector's Edition DVD that will be released here.

    oh wow thats cool,but i think the collest is the special editon twilight dvd of borders with all of its special features. does anyone interested to retail some here in the philippines?

    i think the jewelry box will include the cullen crest and how does the cullen wear it.
    (it is just a theory, though)

  3. m_k said...
     

    will definitely buy!!! my bet for the price is about P1000+

  4. Clair de Lune said...
     

    The regular DVD with Special Features is most likely PhP750, but the Collector's Ed could cost as much as 3K. @_@ That's just my guess. :)

    wow...i'm now excited. hopefully the dvd will be released here in negros simultaneously with the national release on march 21.. :)

    @edwardlovesjec: somebody in multiply is accepting preorders for the borders' dvd.

    i guess the collector's edition is somewhat similar to the border's edition-- roughly 1,500-2k.. it only costs $39 plus a discount of $10 in borders eh.. meanwhile, the jewelry box set is the one with the cullen crest with the claire de lune music when u open it.. ;)

    i'm soooo excited!!

    hi. any idea what online stores will sell the blu-ray edition na the disc lang?

    i find the blu-ray collector's edition posted at amazon to be too much na. i just want the movie mismo.

    i heard target and best buy will be carrying the blu-ray discs ahead of everybody else but i'm not sure if this is true.

    share naman please if you find anything on blu-ray.

    thanks,
    mb

    ANONYMOUS-
    Twilight will be available on Blu-Ray (disc only) via Target and Best Buy starting March 21. I think Amazon got the Ultimate Collector's Edition Set for Blu-Ray because they're only authorized to release the Blu-Ray starting May 5. So they probably need a promo so people will buy from them, even if they have to wait until May. :) I asked Viva Video if they're releasing on Blu-Ray locally, unfortunately, the answer is NOT YET.

    PERTUT-
    I think Viva will have a reservation promo. We'll update you guys once they give us the details.

    AUDRA-
    You can buy the DVDs at places like Odyssey, Music One, Astrovision, and most likely the music/video sections in department stores. Meron din sa National Bookstore and Fully Booked.

    Did they release a y picture of what we are getting?

  13. sheena said...
     

    mm..i guess,pag sa amazon or some other online sellers tayo bibili ng dvd, you'd better think twice poh,kasi for region 1 lng ung disc(us&canada only)..i guess we're region 3 here..so iba yung format..but you can still buy it, just be sure your dvd players can play it..=)

    just an info poh..=)
    hope it helps..

    definitely a very disappointing copy!

    2.0 audio
    full screen
    no subtitles
    and vcd-quality

    if you have enough money, better buy at amazon or DON'T BUY AT ALL!
