The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 sees Bella (Taylor Lautner) and Edward (Chris Cooper) finally tying the knot. The couple have been through a lot since the beginning of the series; they’ve lost almost everyone they care about and have had to grow and change along with their town. They go through a beautiful, elaborate wedding ceremony that sees the likes of Taylor Lautner, Kate Winslet, and more show up to celebrate. It’s been a long journey, and one that fans will be happy to see come to a close. The sequel is currently in post-production and is slated for a November 18th, 2013 release.

Why November 18th, 2013?

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 will be released on November 18th, 2013. Why that date? It’s the last day of the year, which means it’s the last day before everyone and their mothers will be texting you to wish you a Happy New Year. The movie’s PR team must have run out of things to say about the film. So they just went with the easy option.

This is the same tactic used by Lionsgate and Summit on the last days of 2012. The two movies were released on that date and both went on to become huge successes, proving that giving movies a wide release on the eighteenth was the right move. While we might not be as far off from the future as we think, it still feels as though Twilight is quite a ways away. But that makes the wait all the more exciting!

Theaters And Showtimes

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 will be released in theaters on November 18th, 2013 and is expected to play for several months at least. The first weekend was fantastic, seeing as it was a holiday and the majority of people were off work. The next few weekends are probably going to be pretty packed, too. There are still huge lines around the block for midnight showings on Friday and Saturdays, especially during the holidays. If you want to see the film sooner than later, then you might want to consider going on a Thursday night or later on a Saturday night.

On the other hand, if you want to wait and see the film on the big screen with as many people as possible, then go on a Friday or Saturday night. There are still theaters showing the first film, so if you want to experience that, then you might want to see it on the big screen. It’ll be like seeing the film for the first time all over again. This is especially important if you’re a big fan of the saga and want to see it close up and personal. Theaters are definitely the way to go if you want to ensure that you see the film as it was meant to be seen. On the subject of theaters, it’s also worth noting that if you’re seeing the film at all, it’ll probably be in 3D. The theaters that are showing the film might also have other films previewed before, during, and after the showing of Twilight. This can be a good way to fill the gaps between shows if you want to avoid missing any scenes. If you’ve never been in a 3D movie theater, then this is definitely the next time you should go. You might experience something that you’ve never felt before – like being in the presence of something magical!
