Be the first to experience Twilight's New Moon at Blockbuster

Blockbuster hosts midnight events across Canada for the release of New Moon, the second installment in the popular Twilight Saga

TORONTO, March 15 /CNW/ -

    WHAT:     Canadian fans are encouraged to come out and be the first to
              experience the release of the second film in the popular
              Twilight saga at their neighbourhood Blockbuster. At midnight,
              after special in-store events, giveaways and screenings
              targeted to the thousands of hard-core fans of the franchise,
              fans will be able to take home their own DVD/Blu-Ray copy of
              New Moon, hours before the general public. Twilight, the movie,
              was Blockbuster Canada's largest ever retail title release and
              the release of New Moon is expected to surpass it.

              For Twilight fans who need to secure their copy now,
              Blockbuster members can pre-order New Moon in-store today, and
              receive 1 of 4 collectible posters, while supplies last. For
              super fans, Blockbuster also has exclusive rights to
              'Robsessed,' until May 15. 'Robsessed' is a documentary on the
              sudden and widespread popularity of actor Robert Pattinson that
              ensued after the release of the first film in theatre.
