Although Twilight has gotten some mixed reviews, that hasn't stopped people from speculating about its success - and the books too.
Publishing insiders are already saying that Stephenie Meyers' Twilight series will make it big, maybe even outperforming the Harry Potter series. Especially now with the movie out!
Elizabeth Eulberg, publicist for the Twilight books, said "I think it will definitely bring a bigger audience. We just hope the people who haven't read the books who see the movie will read them."
She adds that sales have risen in the past few weeks with worldwide sales of the four books in the series reaching 25 million. The books are also printed in 37 languages!
Eulberg added that "For the past three years we've been steadily getting more fans, so when 'Breaking Dawn' came out [in August] it sold 1.3 million copies on the first day in the U.S."
As for the book's author, Meyer claims the idea came to her in a dream back in 2003. Just six months later she had written Twilight and signed a six-figure deal.
Wonder how much of that money she's donated to her Mormon church and to the Yes on Prop H8te to promote lies????????????
But despite the books selling well, the flick is still not doing so well with the reviews.
Time Magazine added that while Twilight was not a masterpiece, it "rekindles the warmth of great Hollywood romances."
Will U be watching Twilight?
