The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
I'm happy for Summit Entertainment, but most the credit goes to screaming girls for the opening (mid)night of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Yes, I believe there are better films out there that end up doing way less, but this is Twilight after all. So here's the details...
Midnight Box Office Record: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Eclipse opened up to a whopping $30 million during its midnight opening. Yes, that is insane; and enough to break the midnight opening record. The film even broke IMAX's midnight record, taking in $1 million from 192 showings. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen previously held the record with $959,000. Sorry Michael Bay.
Both Eclipse and The Last Airbender (which nobody seems to like) are expected to see some big numbers over the holiday weekend, so stay tuned for that.
