Twilight fangirls (and boys) get ready to freak out - the original movie is coming back to theaters, for one day only.
"Twilight," which has brought in $191.5 million to date domestically, will be re-released on 2,000 screens on November 19th, the day before "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" opens in wide release.
"Despite the first film already being on DVD, fans across the nation have been calling out to see the film once again on the big screen, and the studio is honoring their request," Summit Entertainment told the Hollywood Reporter.
The movies are based on the best-selling series of young adult novels by Stephanie Meyer.
In addition to bookshelf and box office success, "Twilight" has proved to be big business on the music charts as well. The soundtrack to "New Moon" took the No. 1 spot on the U.S. pop charts Wednesday, according to Billboard, selling 153,000 copies over the last week.
