Below is the official press release from SND via Twilight France:
Dear fans of Twilight,
We are pleased to announce the release dates of the next two chapters of the Twilight series, produced by Summit Entertainment, co-financed and distributed in France by SND.
You will find Bella, Edward and Jacob in the cinemas of France from November 16, 2011 with the release of Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and November 14, 2012 with the release of Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Note that France will receive twice the special treatment, since both films will be released in France as world premieres, two days before the U.S. release!
Its time to choose a French adaptation for the titles of two items of the saga. Many fans have drawn our attention to the length and strangeness of the titles which involve both chapters, parts, and several numbers (i.e. Twilight Chapter 4: Revelation, Part 1).
Like the choice of The Call for Blood, the French title of The Second Life of Bree Tanner, a collaborative effort between the fans and Hachette, we decided to organize a large survey to collect your preference for the last two titles in the saga. Note that we have obtained the blessing of Stephenie Meyer, which in turn is very sensitive to the fact that this saga remains accessible to the greatest number.
The producers of the films have already suggested that the title “Revelation” as the final chapter of the saga. But we also insist on a adaptation Part 1 & Part 2 or of course keep a literal translation, or other ideas. So, we’re asking you to tell us what you like!
We will begin welcoming your suggestions in the month of September. Feel free to be creative: all ideas are welcome! Stephenie Meyer, Summit and SND will then select the best five proposals from all those you’ve sent us. It will be up to you to choose among these five proposals. We will tell you what to do in early September to submit your ideas. In the meantime, you can already start thinking about the chapter titles successor to Twilight Chapter 1: Twilight, Twilight, Chapter 2: Temptation and Twilight Chapter 3: Hesitation!
WOOHHOOO!!!!!!!!!! I'M FRENCH!!!!
