-From E! Online:
The best parties don't get started until way past Twilight.
Summit Entertainment announced Tuesday that the teen-vampire romance will be available for your home-swooning pleasure March 21 in a two-disc, extras-laden, special-edition DVD set.
But the makers of Twilight don't just want you walking into any old big-box store whenever. Those DVDs are gonna be ready at midnight sharp-on a Saturday. (DVDs usually drop on Tuesdays.)

This explains the Saturday release.....thank you Summit for doing the midnight release on a weekend! I'll be there at midnight how about you?
- MTV also has an article about the DVD release:
Mark your calendars Twilighters! On March 21st you will finally be able to own a copy of "Twilight" on DVD, and that means you'll be able to savor every single moment as many times as you like. That date falls on a Saturday, an extremely odd day for a DVD release (virtually all other films come out on Tuesdays.)
According to the studio, the Saturday date was selected "to encourage midnight release parties for fans across the nation."
