TWILIGHT SAGA NEWS: APRIL 12TH

100 Monkeys talk about the possibility of appearing on ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ soundtrack

The idea that the 100 Monkeys should appear on the official soundtrack for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has been floating around for quite some time.

The band, made popular in part thanks to its member and Twilight star Jackson Rathbone, has been vetted for a spot on the album by a great many Twilight fans over the past few months.

Several of the band’s members did an interview recently with TMCnet, and during the discussion, Ben Graupner (a.k.a. “Ben G”) talked about that very possibility.

There has been talk of 100 Monkeys appearing on the “Eclipse” soundtrack, but Graupner says, “I think we know just about as much as anyone else who’s out there.” “Obviously, they know who we are,” he says. “We played a couple of cast parties and stuff … you wind up meeting those people. They know the music, but there’s been no formal approach from either side concerning that. So I think at this point it’s all just sort of Internet buzz.”

While no official track listing for the album has yet been released, and talk about who will be a part of the soundtrack has been “buzz”-ing around quite a bit, the fact that they haven’t heard anything about it yet is discouraging to that end.

Of course, only time will tell. SOURCE

‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ finishes up as ‘biggest teen romance and vampire movie on record’

The Twilight Saga: New Moon might not have been the biggest in overall domestic or worldwide intake for 2009, despite the best efforts of Twilight fans to make it so, but it still holds the top title for quite a few posts.
As you already know, New Moon secured the top spot for midnight ticket sales and opening day numbers on November 20th, 2009, bringing in well over seventy million dollars within twenty-four hours.

According to Box Office Mojo’s latest New Moon report, the film “still holds the record[s]” for those showings.
“It also stands as the biggest teen romance and vampire movie on record, eclipsing the first Twilight for the title,” Box Office Mojo’s Brandon Gray reports.

Oddly enough, and you’ve probably heard this before, New Moon takes the cake for “being the most front-loaded blockbuster ever, making 48 percent of its total gross on its first weekend alone.”
Interesting, eh?

Any theories on why New Moon was so “front-loaded” in numbers?

BOM goes on to report that internationally, New Moon did very well as compared to last year’s Twilight.
“The greatest growth for New Moon,” BOM reports, “came on the foreign front. It has pulled in $413.1 million thus far, more than doubling what Twilight made. That puts its worldwide total at $710 million versus Twilight’s $385 million.” SOURCE
