The Twilight Saga films may be over, but the battle for money from the blockbuster franchise is not. Financier Goldcrest Film Distribution hit Summit today with a multimillion-dollar breach of contract lawsuit (read it here) over the movies. “As a direct result of Defendant’s deceptive accounting practices in which it systematically understates the Twilight revenues and overstates its costs, however, Goldcrest has received many millions of dollars less than it is due,” says the heavily redacted document filed today in LA Superior Court. The plaintiff says they are trying “to recover several million dollars in payments” from the more than $392 million that the Twilight pics have made worldwide. In a 2008 sub-distribution deal Goldcrest says in the filing it agreed to front Summit and others $10 million for four films based on the bestselling vampire books by Stephenie Meyer. For the upfront payment, the London-based financier was to get a hefty slice of the pics’ global net revenue.

Obviously that didn’t happen to Goldcrest’s satisfaction with what they allege are fast and loose moves on the part of Summit, now a Lionsgate subsidiary. “We uncovered numerous improper accounting charges, including retroactive ‘bonuses’ paid to actors Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson after Twilight was released, which were not due under their agreements. These bonuses were paid and charged back to Goldcrest long after Twilight was completed,” said Goldcrest attorney Mark Holscher of Kirkland & Ellis in a statement after the case was filed (Kirkland & Ellis’ Sierra Elizabeth is also repping Goldcrest). Stewart and Pattinson were paid total bonuses of $2.5 million each while screenplay writer Melissa Rosenberg and Meyer got $500,000 each, the 12-page complaint claims. With that said, Goldcrest, in today’s breach of contract and declaratory relief filing, wants unspecified compensatory and actual damages as well as restitution, a court declaration of its rights, legal fees and 10% statutory interest from the time of the breach. It is seeking a jury trial.

It has to bite for Summit, no vampire pun absolutely intended.

1. Robert Pattinson, “The Twilight Saga” (2009-2012)

Robert Pattinson captured hearts as teen vampire Edward in the four-film series, kicking off the current wave of vampire pop culture. Without “Twilight” (the first novel was published in 2005), there would likely be no “Vampire Diaries,” “True Blood,” “Dracula,” or “Only Lovers Left Alive” – and this list would be, sadly, much shorter.

I am not sure if this is from a DVD behind the scenes footage I haven’t seen or a scan from a magazine I haven’t seen? Any thoughts?

Warner Home Video’s ‘Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,’ and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment’s James Bond actioner, ‘Skyfall,’ round out the year’s top-three packaged-media releases.

Lionsgate’s final Twilight movie, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 was the top-selling retail release on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2013, according to new data from Nielsen.

The media measurement company said Warner Home Video’s Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment’s latest James Bond actioner, Skyfall, rounded out the top-three packaged-media releases of the year, which is based on aggregate disc unit sales (DVD, Blu-ray, Blu-ray/DVD Combo packs, etc.) from Dec. 31, 2012, to Dec. 1, 2013.

Rounding out the top 10 disc sellers of the year in order were Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment’s Wreck-It Ralph and Monsters University, followed by Hotel Transylvania from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment; Rise of the Guardians from Paramount Home Media Distribution; Disney’s Iron-Man 3; Fox’s The Croods and Paramount’s Star Trek Into Darkness.

Nielsen said that in 2012 consumers purchased 26% more DVD and Blu-ray titles during the week of Thanksgiving compared to the same period in 2011. Notably, disc sales during the week after Christmas — when sales are at their holiday season peak due to gift cards and discounts — fell 15% from 2011.

Indeed, discs sold the week after Christmas approached 7 million units in 2012, compared with almost 9 million units in 2011 and more than 10 million units sold in 2010.
