Twilight Saga Rocks Multiple Top Ten Lists

Best movie Soundtrack of 2010, Eclipse on Next Movie

soundrtrackcovere“Everybody likes to make fun of “Twilight” – adults, children, house pets – but the producers of the films threw a monkey wrench in the gears of the irony machine by stuffing the soundtrack to their latest effort full of awesome songs from ultra-cool indie bands. “Eclipse” is a who’s who of moody indie rock, featuring a lineup that would make Pitchfork’s brains explode: Beck, Bat For Lashes, Metric, Vampire Weekend, Muse, the Black Keys…the list goes on and on. Perhaps this all shouldn’t be surprising given that music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas made a name for herself turning television’s “The O.C.” into an avenue for indie rock exposure, but it’s still a very pleasant surprise to see the music from a “Twilight” film become the “Singles” soundtrack of the aughts.”

Top Movie Trailer of 2010, Eclipse, via  Google tracking

“Blockbuster ‘Twilight Eclipse’ has beaten ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’, ‘Iron Man 2’ and ‘A Team’ as the top most searched film trailer on google.

While the film didn’t have the enormous hype of Harry Potter, it was a favorite amongst internet users who search for trailers using google. This was despite the fact it received mixed reviews and was not as highly regarded as the previous outing of the franchise.”

Number Three Charity Auction of the Year, according to Tonic

“3. Meet Robert Pattinson on the set of Twilight: Breaking Dawn, to benefit the GO Campaign — $85,000.
The winner received the chance for four people total to experience first-hand the biggest pop culture phenomenon of the decade as they will spend a day on the set, including the chance to meet the film’s star Robert Pattinson!

This auction package included 2 nights in a Deluxe Executive Suite at the elite Four Season Hotel in Vancouver and VIP limousine service to and from the Breaking Dawn set provided by Star Limousine Services!”

New Moon was the third biggest VOD (video on demand) film for 2010.According to Variety who reported on Comcast’s results,

“The second most popular pic on VOD was “Couples Retreat,” followed by “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and “Hot Tub Time Machine.”

Coming in at No. 5 was “The Hurt Locker,” which made just $16.4 million in theatrical release. Though that Kathryn Bigelow film was released in 2009, VOD transactions were strong after its six Oscar wins in March.”

Eclipse Soundtrack Debuts as Billboard’s Number 2

soundrtrackcovereAmanda Bell of the Twilight Examiner has the full story:

“Despite predictions that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse‘s official motion picture soundtrack would debut at number one on the Billboard Top 200 chart, it has finally hit the charts . . . at the number two spot.

Reports Billboard, “Well, Gleeks rejoice! The ‘Journey to Regionals’ EP debuts at No. 1 with 152,000 sold according to Nielsen SoundScan, besting the ‘Eclipse’ album at No. 2 with 144,000.”

Predictions which vetted Eclipse for number one estimated that it would earn “possibly as much as 140,000 to 160,000 copies sold,” so these numbers fall right in line with expectations.”

Eclipse Soundtrack Soars To The Top of The Billboard Chart

soundrtrackcovereAccording to the Reuters wire story:

“The U.S. album chart is finally heating up after a lengthy lackluster spell, with the latest “Twilight” soundtrack set to lead a trio of notable newcomers next week.

“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” is going up against Christina Aguilera’s first studio release in nearly four years and the latest EP from the cast of the Fox TV show “Glee.”

Industry prognosticators think “Eclipse” will likely debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with possibly as much as 140,000 to 160,000 copies sold by week’s end on June 13. The last “Twilight” release, “New Moon,” was released on a Friday and sold 115,000 in just three days, debuting at No. 2. In its first full week, it sold 153,000 and moved up to No. 1.

Sources also predict that the “Glee” album, “Journey to Regionals,” might sell around 110,000 to 130,000 while Aguilera’s “Bionic” could move 100,000 to 120,000 copies.”

USA Today Gives a Thumbs Up to the Eclipse Soundtrack

soundrtrackcovereUSA Today talks about the broad appeal of the Eclipse Soundtrack which is out today!

“The indie pop collected for the soundtrack to ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ should appeal to a broad range of music fans.

With sales of the first two Twilight soundtracks at 3.6 million copies, it’s no surprise some 400 songs were submitted for the third set by artists eager to hop on a hot franchise.

Producer Alexandra Patsavas pruned the heap to 15 congruous originals that admirably maintain a dignified creative independence while conveying the gray, swoony tones of Stephenie Meyer‘s teen vampire romance. In other words, indie-rock snobs can buy the CD without fear of social stigma.”
