DIRECTV to Offer Bonus Footage of The Twilight Saga: New Moon -- Not Available on Cable
DIRECTV's Midnight Premiere of 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' on March 20, Includes Behind-the-Scenes Footage of the Film and an Inside Look at Director Chris Weitz

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Mar 09, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- "Twi-hards" who have DIRECTV won't even have to leave the comfort of their own living rooms to be one of the first to see last fall's box office phenomenon, The Twilight Saga: New Moon. In conjunction with the highly anticipated DVD release of the movie by Summit Entertainment, DIRECTV will offer a midnight premiere of the movie on Saturday, March 20 on DIRECTV Cinema. In addition, customers who purchase the Pay Per View movie will also receive behind-the-scenes bonus features about the film -- not available on cable.

In addition to being able to see teen heartthrobs Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen), Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black) and Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan) in crystal-clear 1080p HD, DIRECTV customers will also have access to the bonus featurette The Subtle Details, which offers viewers a behind-the-scenes look at New Moon's production design, costuming and more. DIRECTV customers will also receive Chris Weitz Takes the Helm, a feature that documents the transition from Catherine Hardwicke, director of Twilight, to New Moon director Chris Weitz, and his vision of the future of the series.

"DIRECTV Cinema's goal is to provide customers with the ultimate in-home movie experience they can't find anywhere else," said Sarah Lyons, vice president, Upgrade Marketing, DIRECTV. "We are thrilled to not only offer The Twilight Saga: New Moon in 1080p HD but to also give our customers a deeper look at what went into making the film."

Twilight Saga: New Moon will premiere on DIRECTV Cinema and DIRECTV on Demand at midnight, Saturday, March 20. The movie will be available in 1080p HD (same as Blu-ray) for $5.99 or standard-definition (SD) for $4.99. In addition, Summit Entertainment's Twilight In Forks, which is a documentary that explores the Pacific Northwest town that inspired the Twilight phenomenon, will also be available in 1080p HD for $5.99 or for $4.99 (SD).

Since this is in 1080P, if I buy the Blu Ray version, will it down convert to 1080i?

Thanks, but no thanks. I'd rather stab myself in the face than watch vampires with feelings, hair gel, and six packs.

It will also be OAR on Blu. No pan & scan.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

OMG ... I told my sister in SoCal about this and she swears she is on the phone right now with D* finding out how to switch from E*. I think she told me she saw this movie six times in the theater. I guess I can call her a "Twi-hard" now.

Funny how sometimes these promotions actually work.

Gosh - she'll actually switch providers when she can go and rent the darn bluray for the same price?

Also, let's not forget all the possible BD Live content that will come with the bluray movie...

If my kids insist, I'll stop by my local Redbox...
