CATEGORIES Movie NewsMemo to movie theater owners around the country: on March 23, you're probably going to want to have extra medical personnel on hand. As if it weren't enough that "The Hunger Games" was debuting on night, Lionsgate announced on Friday that the trailer for "Breaking Dawn Part 2" will premiere before all "Games" screenings.
"'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2' trailer will debut exclusively on every 'Hunger Games' print on its opening night for what will be Lions Gate's largest release ever," Lionsgate chief executive Jon Feltheimer said during conference call (via The Los Angeles Times), while every Twi-hard also anticipating "The Hunger Games" presumably dropped dead with delight.
Lionsgate recently purchased Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the "Twilight" franchise, putting both YA phenomenons under the same roof.
As for "Twilight," despite the fact that "Breaking Dawn Part 2" will be the final go-around for Bella, Edward and Jacob, Lionsgate would be open to another film, should Stephenie Meyer find time to write another book.
"The Hunger Games," with its "Breaking Dawn" trailer, arrives in theaters on March 23.
