The Year in Twilight
It's near the end of 2008, and twilight has had an amazing, if not explosive, year. Beliefnet looks back at the year that was. Click here.
Among the historical events in the twilight world happening this year are:
May 9th: the movie trailer for "Twilight" takes the blogosphere by storm
August 2nd: "Breaking Dawn" comes out with enormous fanfare, midnight parties, and a NYC concert/book release event simulcast all over the web.
September 3rd: Stephenie Meyer's unfinished manuscript for "Midnight Sun"--which is "Twilight" told from Edward's perspective--is leaked online for all to read (but I do not!)
October 31st: "Twilight" fans are treated to a new movie trailer and start counting the days to the film's moved-up pre-Thanksgiving release date.
November 24th: It's official--regardless of reviews, the Twilight movie is a huge hit, grossing $70 million its first weekend.
December 15th: Though "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke bows out of the same role for Twilight sequel, "New Moon," author Stephenie Meyer reassures fans that film number two will be just as good (if not better) than the first, as Chris Weitz signs on to head the project.
