LA41908March 5, 2013 - Lionsgate's home entertainment and box office appeal through its young adult-focused franchises remains strong as Summit Entertainment's blockbuster "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" sold an estimated 3.85 million combined DVD and Blu-ray units in its home entertainment launch over the weekend, an increase over the debut weekend of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" last year. "The Hunger Games" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" ranked as two of the top four home entertainment releases of 2012. Lionsgate acquired Summit Entertainment in January 2012.

Blu-ray sales accounted for an estimated 27 percent of first weekend sales of Breaking Dawn - Part 2, up from 22 percent of the first weekend sales of Breaking Dawn - Part 1, reflecting continued penetration of the Blu-ray format.  Opening weekend estimates for Breaking Dawn - Part 2 also underscored the franchise's continued growth trajectory on digital and on demand platforms, with the film recording approximately 20 percent more electronic sell through transactions than Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and showing early indications of a robust VOD performance as well. "We're particularly pleased that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 opened even stronger than Breaking Dawn - Part 1, which launched on Valentine's Day weekend last year," said Lionsgate Executive Vice President and General Manager of Home Entertainment Ron Schwartz.  "Consumer demand for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 reflects strength in all segments of the home entertainment marketplace – packaged media, digital and on demand.  This is further proof that author Stephenie Meyer has created a timeless classic that moviegoers want to enjoy over and over in a wide variety of formats." The film has grossed $829 million at the worldwide box office, a franchise best, bringing The Twilight Saga's overall worldwide box office to more than $3.3 billion.

  • Clarksburg-Weston, WV, April 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- It is said that the key to losing weight is about 75 percent diet and only 25 percent exercise, and many Americans struggle with this reality on a daily basis. The availability and affordability of junk food makes things difficult for struggling dieters. For many individuals, it is the insatiable food cravings and hunger pangs that get them into trouble. In fact, those who are trying to lose pounds may be even more likely to binge on unhealthy snacks, especially when initially trying to change those eating habits. Hunger increases with low-calorie requirements and when exercise is introduced, which can be the biggest obstacle to any weight loss program. Diet Doc – the leading medical weight loss program in the United States, has spent decades getting to the heart of weight loss struggles for their patients. Their success has been driven by addressing not only the patient’s appearance, but the mental and emotional processes that often accompany lifelong struggles with weight.
