Lionsgate sets final 'Twilight' pic for multiple formats

Lionsgate has set a March 2 homevideo release for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” capping a franchise whose first four films have generated sales of 50 million DVD and Blu-ray copies.

Studio said the final “Twilight” movie will be released on Blu-ray, a two-disc DVD set, video-on-demand and digital download from the Summit label. The Blu-ray and DVD will include hours of bonus materials.

Lionsgate noted that the March 2 street date, which is a Saturday, allows for midnight events at retailers nationwide. It also said that “Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” which has taken in $290 million in domestic box office and $821 million worldwide, will make “The Twilight Saga” the top-selling home entertainment franchise since 2009.

The Blu-ray and DVD, which will include a seven-part making-of documentary, carry suggested retail prices of $39.99 and $30.98, respectively. Lionsgate announced last week that “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 Extended Edition” would also be available on March 2.
