Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Trailer to Debut Before Hunger Games
Posted 02.10.12 by Chris
The worlds of Twilight and The Hunger Games are about to collide.
The LA Times reports that the trailer for the fifth and final Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn – Part 2, will debut before The Hunger Games when it hits theaters March 23.
The move makes sense now that Lionsgate owns Summit, the studio behind Twilight. As the Times article points out, while anticipation is high for The Hunger Games, it doesn't have the proven built-in fanbase that Twilight has. Will the Twi-hards who made Twilight a multi-billion dollar franchise show up to watch Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) try to survive the Hunger Games? Lionsgate is definitely banking on it.
And speaking of Breaking Dawn, the movie is being released on DVD and Blu-ray today (midnight Friday instead of Tuesday, when most movies are released on home video). While fans might have to wait for Breaking Dawn - Part 2's trailer, Target is showing a sneak peek of the movie in stores. Undoubtedly, that footage will find its way online sooner or later.
In the meanwhile, here is the newest trailer for The Hunger Games, in case you missed it. And don't forget to enter our giveaway for a chance to win a trip for two to the Hunger Games premiere.
