Fans of the cult-classic book and film series “Twilight” will get a chance to see the film-concert tour this year across the globe.
Following “The Hunger Games” and “La La Land” concert tours, Lionsgate has announced the launch of “Twilight in Concert” throughout countries like Brazil, Australia, and the U.K. this August. During each showing, a full orchestra will perform Academy Award-nominated Carter Burwell’s original film score timed to a screening of the film.
“We’re thrilled to launch another live-to-film tour in the footsteps of our ‘Hunger Games’ and ‘La La Land’ international concert events,” Lionsgate’s Jennifer Brown said in a press release. “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” series, written by Stephanie Myer, revolves around the unique love story of Isabella Swan and her encounter with Edward Cullen, who is a part of a family of vampires. Throughout the young-adult novels, “Bella” falls for Edward and must find a way to live her normal life with a vampire boyfriend, slowly realizing the world always held more mysteries than she could have ever imagined.
In 2008, the first “Twilight” film hit theatres, featuring Kristen Stewart as Bella and Robert Pattinson as Edward. The film, which was directed by Catherine Hardwicke with a screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg, was followed by “New Moon,” “Eclipse,” and a two-part film “Breaking Dawn.” Throughout its franchise, the series garnered $3.3 billion worldwide.
In addition to the recent film-concert tours, the hit TV show “Game of Thrones” will receive its third concert tour this fall. Dubbed the “Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience,” the event will feature pieces throughout the fantasy series, as well as new musical arrangements from the final season, which just wrapped-up last night.
