'Breaking Dawn - Part 2' Trailer to debut on March 23rd with 'The Hunger Games' plus a sixth Twilight movie is a go if Stephenie Meyer delivers a fifth book

the Breaking Dawn Part 2 trailer will debut on every Hunger Games print on its theatrical opening on March 23 – Lionsgate’s largest ever theatrical release.

From The LA Times 
The trailer for the fifth and final "Twilight" movie, "Breaking Dawn Part 2," will debut exclusively on "The Hunger Games" in March -- the first significant example of synergy between Lions Gate Entertainment and its new subsidiary Summit Entertainment.

When the studio acquired Summit in January, Lions Gate executives touted the opportunities that would come from bringing together two of Hollywood's hottest young adult franchises. Because fans tend to get excited about seeing the first trailer for a highly anticipated sequel, Lions Gate is betting it can bring the huge base of "Twilight" fans to the opening weekend of "The Hunger Games," which debuts March 23.

"'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2' trailer will debut exclusively on every 'Hunger Games' print on its opening night for what will be Lions Gate's largest release ever," Santa Monica-based Lions Gate's chief executive Jon Feltheimer said on a conference call with analysts Friday following the release of its financial results.

The Summit co-founder and now Lionsgate exec said the indie studio will produce a sixth vampire flick if Stephenie Meyer writes another installment.

TORONTO - Will there be a Twilight 6? That depends on getting a fifth book out of Twilight writer Stephenie Meyer, Lionsgate motion picture group co-chair Rob Friedman said Friday, giving hope to Twi-hards everywhere.
“If she (Meyer) wishes to do it, we’ll be there to support her” with a sixth film, said Friedman, who now runs the Lionsgate movie division with Patrick Wachsberger after the duo sold Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the Twilight franchise, to Lionsgate in January as part of a $412.5 million leveraged buy-out.
Friedman was participating in his first Lionsgate analyst call after the indie studio missed on its third quarter earnings Thursday, but insisted it was bullish about the future now that it has swallowed privately-held Summit and its Twilight franchise.
Lionsgate in recent weeks has also talked about a sixth Twilight movie after projecting the upcoming Breaking Dawn Part 2 release will bring in $700 million-plus in worldwide box office, which should invite a follow-up film.
Lionsgate executives on Friday did much to talk up the synergies between the two studios now that the brain trust behind the Twilight franchise is at work on the launch of the next possible vampire flicks franchise once The Hunger Games debuts next month.
For example, the Breaking Dawn Part 2 trailer will debut on every Hunger Games print on its theatrical opening on March 23 – Lionsgate’s largest ever theatrical release.

Changes, however, are afoot as Lionsgate integrates Summit. Summit releases its own films on DVD through Universal Studios, while Lionsgate DVD titles go out through 20th Century Fox.
Lionsgate president Steve Beeks told analysts he will look to consolidate the home entertainment distribution over time.
But Friedman and Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer stressed in answers to analysts Friday that both studios shared similarities and that consistency would be maintained going forward.
We don’t see a lot of dramatic changes. We just see a great combination,” Friedman said

Stephenie has already said right now she is kind of tired of Vampires and doesn't plan on writing about them anytime soon so if she wrote another book in the Twilight series, I don't see it being for quite a long time, if ever.   And I obviously don't know Kristen or Rob but I just don't see either of them being willing to sign up for another Twilight movie.  And while I am sure most fans would be willing to overlook this fact, both actors would obviously look quite older by the time another film was ever made.  Regarding Midnight Sun, while I would love to have Stephenie finish this book, I don't see how they could make it into a movie without it feeling exactly like Twilight, it is the same story, just from a different person's perspective.  And if Rob and Kristen were not in it, it wouldn't be worth seeing. (in my opinion)

It would be awesome.

I'm happy to hear about the trailer! I have mixed emotions about another film - A) It would almost certainly have to be a new cast. B) Stephenie has said she's out of the Twi world for a while & if she did write more it would probably be about Leah or a lesser known character like that.

So Idk how I would feel. As long as it was something that Stephenie wrote I would be ok with it.

I read about this earlier today. I hope there would be another book, maybe about Jacob and Renesmee. It's the only movie that I could see happening. With Midnight Sun, I don't see really a point in doing a movie because it's Twilight, through another perspective. I think I've read/heard she said in a interview that Edward and Bella's story is over. So hopefully it will be about Renesmee and how she grows up.

I think it sucks that there using Twilight fans to boost Hunger Games popularity!! I would just see the trailer when it came online instead of going to the movies!! And with that said I think it will be Awesome if SM wrote another book for Twilight!! I'd Love to see Renesmee's POV!! And the movie will have to have all the original cast!! But I don't think it's gonna happen :( but I'm happy that we at least got 5 movies out of 4 books!! I mean just think if Breaking Dawn wasn't that long the Twilight Saga would of ended last year instead!!

I know it! I don't have any plans on seeing the Hunger Games and I don't want to spend $7 just to see a 30 second trailer. I would just hope the trailer will surface on the internet somewhere.
