Twilight fans can relive the glory days of the franchise with a new ‘Twilight Live-to-Film’ concert tour. The project is Lionsgate’s latest IP to be adapted into an international live-to-film event, and fans across the world will have the chance to see it.
“Twilight” is the first film in the enormously popular franchise. The five films in the franchise grossed over $3.3B at the box office worldwide. The movies were an adaption of Stephenie Meyer’s runaway bestseller book series, which sold more than 120M copies around the world.
“We’re thrilled to launch another live-to-film tour in the footsteps of our Hunger Games and La La Land international concert events,” said Lionsgate SVP of Global Live and Location-Based Entertainment Jenefer Brown. “The combination of author Stephenie Meyer’s brilliant storytelling, Carter Burwell’s musical genius, and a truly legendary underlying film and book property will continue to expand the world of Twilight and introduce it to legions of new fans around the world.”
The Twilight in Concert world tour will debut in Brazil in August, followed by stops in Australia and the UK. The event will feature a full orchestra performing multiple Academy Award-nominated Carter Burwell’s original film score timed to a screening of “Twilight.”
Depending on your age, you may have missed the Twilight craze, or never became invested in the madness. The story is a modern vampire tale set in the town of Forks, Washington. In the story, new transfer student Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) meets the mysterious Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and discovers that Edward is a vampire. A forbidden secret, their lives are turned upside down in a fight to preserve their love.
The film adaptation was directed by Catherine Hardwicke, working from a screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg. The film version starred Stewart, Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner.
Twilight in Concert’s tour joins a series of live-to-film concerts touring internationally based on Lionsgate properties, including The Hunger Games In Concert and La La Land in Concert, with more than 125 performances in 25 countries to date.
