Summit Entertainment is on a quest to ascend the Hollywood mountain with help from some Twihards. The small movie studio previously operated primarily as an international sales and distribution company since its formation in the 1990s. But thanks to its smash hit Twilight series, Summit has made a name for itself as a full-fledged production outfit. Teen-age girls have been heading to the theater in droves to see the vampire films, based on a series of popular young-adult novels by Stephenie Meyer. As a result, Summit began releasing about 10 films each year. Such success attracted the attention of leading indie studio Lionsgate, which in 2012 acquired Summit Entertainment.
