The official run time of the Twilight movie has been announced! According to Summit Entertainment, the movie will be about 120 minutes long. That's good news for many of us who are worried that a shorter 90-minute flick just wouldn't be long enough for the storyline and relationships to develop.
According to MTV News:
At various points during the film’s development, many have speculated that Catherine Hardwicke’s movie would run between 90 and 100 minutes, a typical length for most teen-oriented films. Since Meyer’s novel stands it at about 500 pages, concerns had naturally been raised over which beloved moments would need to be cut. With this news from Summit Entertainment, however, fans can find solace in knowing that the love story of Edward and Bella will be allowed a good two hours to develop. While we’re still not talking P.T. Anderson or Martin Scorsese length, 120 minutes is seen by most Hollywood insiders as long enough to tell a good story, but not so unwieldy that fewer showings need to be scheduled each day (thereby losing opening weekend revenue).
All I can say is, (sigh) O M E! (That's "Oh my Edward!")
