As every Twi-hard knows, February 11, 2012 is the day when Breaking Dawn: Part 1 will come out on DVD and Blu-ray. It’s already a big day for all of the hardcore Twilight fans out there, but Target is making it even bigger. The store is going to host a huge Breaking Dawn midnight release party where fans can not only pick up their exclusive copy of the film, but where they can also watch a sneak peek of Breaking Dawn: Part 2.
Target announced that nearly 500 stores across the country will extend store hours to host a release event for Summit Entertainment’s “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” available on DVD and Blu-ray. Beginning at 11 p.m. on Feb. 10, fans will be shown an exclusive, world premiere scene from the fifth and final film, Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Then, at midnight, fans can purchase the Target exclusive Breaking Dawn – Part 1 DVD Limited Collector’s Edition that includes an authentic prop flower from the wedding scene beautifully encased in an acrylic keepsake. The special edition DVD and Blu-ray will also be available.
“We’re making Target the Twilight Saga destination this February,” said John Butcher, vice president of entertainment, Target. “By extending our store hours, fans will not only get their hands on the exclusive merchandise first, but they’ll also get an exciting sneak peek of the final film.”
So not only do you fans get a limited edition of the film. But you get to see a scene from Part 2 as well. Target is definitely hooking the Twi-hards up this year.
As said above, only about 500 stores are holding this release event, to see if there’s a store near you that’s doing it check out Target’s Twilight site HERE. On that site you can also find LOADS of Twilight merchandise – from jewelry to bedding.
If all that wasn’t enough, Target is also holding a sweepstakes where a lucky winner gets to spend 5 nights at the Esme resort house in Rio De Janeiro.
