Final “Twilight” Film Now in Theaters; “Lincoln” Expands
(NEW YORK) — Your local movie theater will be packed with teens all weekend long, because the fifth and final Twilight film has made its debut.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 reunites stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Stewart’s Bella has given birth to her daughter with Pattinson’s vampire character, Edward. She survived the delivery and is now a vampire herself.
The couple’s family is threatened when the ancient vampire council, the Volturi, finds out about their child, which is half-human, half-vampire.
Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Dakota Fanning, Michael Sheen and Peter Facinelli also star in Breaking Dawn — Part 2, which is rated PG-13. [Click here to read a review]
How big of a weekend will Breaking Dawn –- Part 2 have? Well, consider this: the film represented 92 percent of all ticket sales on Fandango for Thursday. There are predictions that it could rake in as much as $150 million.
ABC News Radio caught up with some fans after a late Thursday night screening in Manhattan, and their reviews were mostly positive.
A woman named Joanna initially screamed with excitement as she spoke to a reporter, then, after composing herself, said, “I thought that it was the perfect marriage of all of the series, and it came together nicely.”
A 22-year-old female fan named Alex gave the film a “B,” explaining, “It was blatantly obvious that it was forced, a lot of it. The sex scenes were horrible. And the fight was really good.”
A man named Jorge — who clearly was not a “Twi-hard” — was less enthusiastic. He said, “It was the least bad of the Twilight movies. Like — it was nowhere near any of the awesome summer blockbusters: No, Batman, no, Avengers, no. It’s the least bad, the least girly movie.”
If Twilight’s not your thing, you can check out Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, which expands into wide release this weekend. Daniel Day-Lewis stars as the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln.
