'Twilight' will return to theaters for one day

Will play in 2,000 venues on Nov. 19

Apparently there's still some theatrical bite in the original "Twilight" film.

Summit Entertainment said Thursday it plans to rerelease the vampire-romance actioner in more than 2,000 theaters for one day only on Nov. 19 -- the day before the mini-major opens sequel "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" in even wider release.

"Despite the first film already being on DVD, fans across the nation have been calling out to see the film once again on the big screen, and the studio is honoring their request," Summit said.

"Twilight" has rung up $191.5 million to date domestically and $383.7 million on a worldwide basis. Unspooling last Nov. 21, the franchise originator sunk its teeth into bigger than expected opening weekend boxoffice, totaling $69.6 million in U.S. and Canadian coin.

Summit said "Twilight" tickets would be sold at a discount at select sites.
