The Twilight franchise comes to an end this November with the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, but the series is planning on going out with a bang. Summit announced today that “The Twilight Saga Marathon” will invade theaters across the country on November 15th, a day before the wide release of Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Fans will be treated to all four previous Twilight films on the big screen, followed by the premiere of Breaking Dawn – Part 2 at 10pm local time; a full two hours before the midnight screenings begin.
Marathon-goers will be privy to exclusive content that will play between the films as well as a collectible event lanyard to keep their tickets close. Though the Twilight series gets derided plenty, Summit certainly knows how to treat the franchise’s legion of fans. More detailed information will be released soon, but in the meantime check out trailers for all the previous films followed by the full press release after the jump. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 opens everywhere on November 16th.
Here are the trailers for all the Twilight films thus far:
