“Breaking day-and-date with its domestic release, the fifth and final title based on Stephenie Meyer’s series of novels about a young woman (Kristen Stewart) in love with a vampire (Robert Pattinson) blasted its way to a huge, double-digit weekend debut in the U.K. ($25.2 million at 588 locations for a per-site average of nearly $43,000).” – Hollywood Reporter
The stratospheric success of the Twilight franchise seems limitless and the emotive soundtracks to the films have proved popular in their own right. The scores from the previous four chapters feature the talents of three of Hollywood’s most creative composers, Howard Shore, Alexandre Desplat and Carter Burwell and are collected onto one disc, performed by The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
The final film to the saga, Breaking Dawn: Part 2, sees the return of composer Carter Burwell for the closing chapter. Its debut tally matches the entire foreign box office of series original, 2008’s Twilight, and in celebration of this success, Silva Screen are offering their release featuring the collected music of the first four films for just £5.99 on iTunes for a limited time only.
