The Dark Knight is the highest-grossing movie of the year, but Twilight beats it on the returns. High School Musical 3: Senior Year did well, too. Movie studios can thank the teenage market for this year’s trend: slew out low-budget flicks, cast attractive young stars, and voila! – box office success.
Of course, Twilight has a rabid following, but doesn’t Batman as well?
I still haven’t watched Twilight, but I’ve read the saga. It’s a winning story, so I’m not surprised by the massive following it has. Although my friends (who were the ones responsible for my biting the Twilight apple) who’ve seen the movie went home disappointed…. so I’m thinking I’ll just catch it on video so as not to expect too much from it. 🙂
