In a move that should not surprise many, Lionsgate announced this morning during a Q3 call with investors that the first trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 will debut with every print of The Hunger Games in theaters on March 23. The move was to be expected with Lionsgate recently acquiring Summit Entertainment, which previously distributed the “Twilight Saga” films.
Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer said: “We’re very excited about the opportunities created by our recent acquisition of Summit Entertainment. The February 11 home entertainment release of ‘Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn 1,’ the March 23 theatrical release of ‘Hunger Games’ and the November 16 theatrical release of ‘Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn 2’ lead a strong combined slate that we believe will enable us to deliver increased consistency, profitability and value to our shareholders.”
Naturally, the studio also said that it would support Stephenie Meyer if she was to write another “Twilight” book, considering how much Summit has earned with the franchise already.
