The Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Princess and the Frog and The Wolfman and other high profile pictures officially ended their box office runs on Thursday, April 1. In other words, their distributors decided to stop tracking them, even though they may still be playing at a handful of theaters. For instance, New Moon, which has been out on video since Mar. 20, continued to show on at least five theaters, while Wolfman still haunted over 100 sites.
Winding up with $296.6 million in 133 days, New Moon was the fourth highest-grossing movie from 2009 and ranks 34th on the all time grosses chart (though it doesn’t crack the Top 150 in terms of estimated attendance). It also stands as the biggest teen romance and vampire movie on record, eclipsing the first Twilight for the title. New Moon impressed by building significantly on Twilight’s turn-out, which was $192.8 million. When a predecessor is that popular, it has been historically uncommon for a sequel to surpass it.
New Moon still holds the record for biggest single day with its $72.7 million haul on its opening day, Nov. 20, 2009, as well as the midnight showings record ($26.3 million). It also logged the third highest-grossing opening weekend of all time, $142.8 million, but has the distinction of being the most front-loaded blockbuster ever, making 48 percent of its total gross on its first weekend alone. One has to go down to No. 72 on the all time opening weekend chart, Valentine’s Day, to find a more front-heavy performance, while the first Twilight’s opening weekend accounted for 36 percent of its final tally.
The greatest growth for New Moon came on the foreign front. It has pulled in $413.1 million thus far, more than doubling what Twilight made. That puts its worldwide total at $710 million versus Twilight’s $385 million. New Moon’s initial DVD sales, though, haven’t trumped Twilight at the same rate: its first weekend reportedly sold an estimated 4 million units versus Twilight’s 3.8 million. Fans won’t have to wait a year for the next movie like they did for New Moon as the third entry, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, is scheduled to be unleashed on June 30.

Q: Tell us a little about auditioning for “Remember Me” to being on set to now seeing it on the big screen.
A: The audition process for “Remember Me” was a nightmare. I had to go in four separate times over the course of a few months. The first time I went in I didn’t think I was right for the part, I had only read half the script and I forgot my sides. I was off to a great start. I was told that I had done great, but they were going to try and find a “name” in L.A. If they didn’t find a name then I would be in the running. I figured that was it, and put it out of my mind. A month later, I got a call that I would be coming back in for the director. I thought the director hated me. I thought I was doing so badly that I almost got and apologized for wasting everybody’s time. Turns out he loved me. A few weeks later I went to meet Rob and do a screen test with him. Luckily, I was performing on Broadway at the time so I could relax a little bit because I new I had a paycheck. Rob was great! The screen test went wonderfully. The director and producer loved me, but Summit still wasn’t sold. I had to go back in a few later to sort of hash out what I would do with the character. The director fought for me and eventually I got the job. It is strange to see it out there. It is completely out of your hands now. It’s an odd feeling. I am extremely proud to have been a part of it. I have read most of the comments and reviews about it. I am so thankful that they love it or hate it — that people are actually talking about it. I love that people actually have an opinion about it and a strong one at that.

He is angry at himself, he doesn’t accept the suicide of his brother, he rebels against his father; a famous lawyer. He reproaches him with not showing enough love to his children.
RP: I read this script after shooting Twilight. These 2 stories are completely different. In Remember Me , it’s very honest and that’s why I wanted to do it. I love love stories because we find a lot of things to do.
Robert Pattinson has become an international star thanks to the success of Twilight. He is considered as the new sex symbol in Hollywood and nowadays he is compared to James Dean. He attracts audiences and in fact the shooting of Remember Me was in NY and the actors had to get used to the screaming fans.
RP: the crowd there was much more important than for Twilight. I remember especially the scene we shot in Central Park, there were more than 2,000 people waiting for something to happen. Ruby, who plays my little sister, and I were spied on. I don’t know what they were expecting. Maybe an explosion. But nothing happened. It was a simple discussion scene .
With Remember Me Robert Pattinson has finally a mature role which enables him to show his talent. A beautiful love story, Remember Me is also a gorgeous drama. Extremely captivating. You won’t forget its ending.
