Fans excited as successful negotiation brings Twilight to Mareel
Shetland Arts will be screening Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part II in Mareel on the release date of Friday 16th November.
In the final, fifth instalment in the record-breaking Twilight franchise, the now vamped Bella and Edward Cullen must face the malign Volturi council, who threaten the well-being of their newborn child. Moving towards a colossal final showdown between werewolf and vampire clans, the epic conclusion to one of the most successful film series of our time is among the most anticipated films of the year.
Films at Mareel are generally shown a few weeks after their official UK release dates because this is when distributors are willing to be flexible about how many times a film shows each day, allowing five or six films to be shown in a week. With blockbusters like Twilight the distributors insist the films are shown on Screen 1 for one, and sometimes two, full weeks in order to get them on the release date, so there has to be a high audience demand in order to secure them.
Head of development Kathy Hubbard said: “We know Shetland Twilight fans are very excited about the final film and we’ve had lots of requests to get it on release date. We negotiated with distributors and are happy to say we managed to secure it for 16 November. We expect it will be very popular.”
