    This is awesome. Hopefully this will make Summit cough up some more cash for the sequels. Yet it’s amazing that in total we almost managed to buy as much as Twilight made the first three days in theaters.

    Forgot to mention, although I love Nemo as a movie. I agree with Freakin Loon, let’s bring the Fish down w/ New Moon. LOL

  4. sheeesh I definitely need to get a copy from Target. I hope they still have it 😐 that’ll be my third copy then…

    Did anybody get the Border’s exclusive edition? I’m trying to decided between buying at Target or spending the extra on the Border’s version.

    I love my Target copy.
    Right now I’m watching the Catherine/Rob/Kristen commentary. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. They are so fun together and their extra info is so entertaining.

  7. @ Vegas-I did and the “special” stuff wasn’t that great. I’d go for the Target version if you had to choose one, but of course I bought both…

  8. Zookie Monster says:

    Ferard Addict: EXACTLY why I’m waiting for Target’s!!!

  9. Got the Border’s special edition. And I LOVE it! I still need to watch the commentary– that sounds like a lot of fun. 😉

    And WOAH. Three million?! I can’t even count that high! (Well, I could, but I’d get bored around fifty. ;))

    So, congrats to the Twilight cast and crew, and Summit! This is a big thing, and I hope you guys are celebrating! 🙂
