I already pre-ordered my DVD at Hot Topic so I will be at their release party. But for thos of you not in reach of a Hot Topic this sounds like the next best thing.
Walmart today announced detailed plans to bring teens, women and "Twilighters" of all ages more access to their beloved Twilight story as it gears up for the March 21 DVD release from Summit Entertainment. Bringing "Twilight shops" to all Walmart stores next month, the retailer announced today it will also host midnight events and giveaways in its 24-hour stores upon the DVD's release, including a program for fans to interview Twilight cast member Taylor Lautner on BlogTalkRadio.
Today, its special micro site www.walmart.com/twilight shares more details on these events, viewing party ideas, new behind-the-scenes movie footage, and a way to engage friends with a create-your-own electronic invitation ("eBite") on the site.
"Fans of all ages have fallen in love with the Twilight series and we will bring to as many as possible special access to the stars, great priced products and additional, memorable activities around this DVD movie release, both in our stores and online," says Greg Hall, vice president, Merchandising at Walmart.

In partnership with BlogTalkRadio, Walmart will host actor Taylor Lautner, who plays "Jacob Black" in Twilight, on the "Stardish Radio" program March 9, 2009 at 9 pm (EST). Speaking from the set of The Twilight Saga's New Moon, Taylor will take questions from fans "logged in" to BlogTalkRadio with hosts Jo Ann Kubasek (Stardish Radio) and Amy Clark (MomAdvice).
I will add Taylor Lautner's appearance on BLOgtalkradio to the events page.
