| Filed under: Film FlickersTwilight

newmoon_1_e.jpg

It may not be living up to the critics' tastes, but New Moon KILLED it when it comes to the midnight release numbers!

Predictions are rolling in that it beat both The Dark Knight's and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince's numbers, raking in between $23 and $24 million for the 12:01 AM screenings!

If New Moon keeps it up all day it could break the biggest Friday opening record too!

Did U see Bella and Edward in action at midnight?

  4. 4

    i did! it was amazing. the lilnes were so long!



  5. 5

    I actually went to the 10pm showing in Vancouver BC, and it was awesome. The film was alot better then the first. Team JACOB. kristen stewart's acting stinks and Taylor stole most of their scenes



  6. 6

    I saw it! Taking my girls today at 5pm too..
    You'll like it if you are a fan, probably not if you aren't. That's why the reviews are mediocre.



  7. 7

    Twilight series (books at least) suck ass. Major Ass. But more power to all the twilight heads who buy into the vampire BS….good for them…?



  8. 8

    dose anybody but 14 year old girls and gay guys care…i don't think so

  12. 12

    I went to the midnight showing!!! It was SO good. Absolutely blew Twilight out of the water



  13. 13

    This movie doesn't deserve this. Twilight is crap.



  14. 14

    I saw it at 7.30 PM CET on 19th Nov :-D



  15. 15

    I DID I DID!!!! AND I LOVED IT!!!! =]



  17. 17

    No. going to see it now. (I'm in England and they didn;t do a midnight showing where I live)

    Can't wait. I'm seeing it at 9, but just got a text that there are HUGE ques and well, I want a good seat. LOL.

    rpatz is hot!!



  18. 18

    YESSS!! IT WAS AMAZING!!!



  19. 19

    absolutely loved it…they stuck to the book this time so it was perfect



  20. 20

    I went to a midnight showing last night! I thought New Moon was spectacular! It definitely exceeded all of my expectations! New Moon is a huge improvement over Twilight. The chemistry between the cast, the humor, even the acting was better! I brought along my 35 year old friend. She had not read the books, but she loved New Moon! The Twilight Saga is not just for kiddies, people! There were tons of "us" waiting on line. ;) Guys and gals of all ages!

    For those that haven't seen the film, please don't be discouraged from a few 'bad reviews'. I always find that 90% of them haven't read the books or are just plain movie snobs. Let's face it: what do you really expect out of it? It's a saga about sparkly vampires and furry wolves! Dive into Stephenie Meyer's wonderful world of mythical creatures and just have fun with it.

    Besides, it has Robert Pattinson in it! How could one NOT enjoy it?! ;)



  21. 21

    I saw a 10pm showing yesterday at my local theater. People were lining up hours before.



  22. 22

    YES IT WAS AMAZING 100 TIMES BETTER THEN TWILIGHT THE WOLVES WERE AWESOME….TEAM JACOB!!!!!!!!



  23. 23

    holy shit in just one screening!!!!!!???



  24. 24

    It is the best movie ever!, at least so far :) lol i got to the theater at 7 pm and waited 5 hours so i could get a good seat!! the lines were so crazy. There were approximately 1700 ppl!! :) amazing!!



  25. 25

    Re: truth in life – actually more teen may care about the movie but i know a lot of adults that like the book.

  26. elizk says – reply to this


    26

    Sure did. Love it, love it, love it!



  27. 27

    I LOVED IT!!!!!! I can't wait to download it when someone records it!



  28. 28

    I went to the showing at 12:15 no lines and great seats. Wish I could say the same for the 12:01 showings that were in the theater along with mine. Kristen didnt do as good in some parts of the movie but I still enjoyed the movie. Taylor did a fantastic job! TEAM JACOB! Cant wait to go again :]



  29. 29

    Saw it last night, let me be the first to say that I was disappointed.

    If anyone follows VinceNotVance, you'd know that I love Twilight ironically. New Moon is too flashy & too self serious to be any "fun" anymore. So it's instead pretty boring & plodding. There were things I liked, but the more I think about the movie, the less I like it.

    But I'm sure that the fans will enjoy it, more or less.



  30. 30

    i doubt it broke the record, plus Harry Potter and The Dark Knight are 10x's better than any Twilight movie. I bet when the movie started 10,000,000 vibrators went on in the theatres. GROSS…or is it? Giggitty



  31. 31

    Re: loveprofusion – CANT AGREE WITH U MORE TWILIGHT IS NOT JUST FOR 14 OR 15 YEAR OLDS LYKE PPL SAY IM 19 AND I CANT ENOUGH !



  32. 32

    I saw it and loved it! I thought it was way better than "Twilight" on so many levels…everyone stepped up their game and acting…even Kristen Stewart…



  33. 33

    Yes I went at 12:01 with about 15 ladies from work. I live in Fairbury Nebraska and we had a line down to the bank at one point. It was AMAZING, one part was kinda fake it was the shot of the girls in the car. Some of my friends thought the first was better. But I loved it and the next one will be 10 times better because the story line is amazing! Although going to the midnight movie is making for a LONG day at work today!



  34. 34

    at least Harry Potter and The Dark Knight were loved by critics and movie goers, i bet millions who watched New Moon left the theatre disappointed. I expect a huge drop on Saturday.



  35. 35

    MOVIE IS EPIC PHAIL



  36. 36

    Yes! Loved it! Some cheezy parts, but mostly amazing.



  37. 37

    Saw it, loved it.
    It was a little slow but it was really great.
    30% to 40% of the movie was dealing with Jacob lol
    Loved my Cullen in this movie (:
    Team Edward Cullen ♥



  38. 38

    omg it was so amazing!
    chris weitz did a lot better job then catherine hardwick.
    the story line followed the book completely and if they added lines is were cute funny lines.
    not catherines stupid pointless ones
    " hold on tight spider money " :roooolleyes:



  39. 39

    No, going at 7:30 tonight. I have young kids.. So if I went at midnight I would have fallen asleep right when the lights go down! Can't wait to see it!!!!



  40. 40

    yeap i watched it i loved it ..it was insane..people were there in line for likes hourss before the show also with there team jacob team edward shirts…Love it..



  41. 41

    YES I DID! It was so EPIC!!!! LOVE midnight showings! They are so much fun.



  42. 42

    Of courseee… and in less than 24 hours I watched it 3 times @ movies :)



  43. 43

    Re: mg16045 – completely disagree. it definitely did not stick to the book. sooooo much was different.



  44. 44

    Of course I saw it! Awesome!! I loved it… Edward looked beautiful as usual



  45. 45

    TERRIBLE!!!! LAUGHABLE!!! TEENAGERY MELODRAMA!!! OVER IT



  46. 46

    yes i was there



  47. 47

    it was so good minus the screaming little girls..still like the books better - team jacob



  48. 48

    no i didnt see it.
    twilight sucks



  49. 49

    Heck yes - my sorority made team jacob and team edward shirts and rented out two theaters for the 250 of us. no lines for us:) the movie was good (if you've read the book) and follows the story closely which everyone liked. It was really funny when it was supposed to be serious but that just made it even more enjoyable in my opinion. oh, and sorry R-Patz lovers, but even all my team edward friends agreed that he looked disgusting in this movie - there were quite a few girls switching teams (no pun intended) by the end of the movie.



  50. 50

    Not only did I go see New Moon at midnight…but they were showing Twilight as well right before…AMAZING NIGHT!!!!!!!!



  51. 51

    Oh my God, please…no more of this shitty movie franchise. I went to it. I was almost in tears by the end of it…"Please…" I sobbed,"..make the horrible shit stop…". Acting? Oooh! Let's sulk! Come on, everyone! Get your sulk on! Ooooh! And talk about horrible pacing…it dragged on…and on…and on…and on…and on…and on… How bad was the movie? Stupid bitch teenage girls with cell phones are a pet peeve of mine at movies…and I would have rather talked to them than watch this crap.



  52. 52

    yeah i definitely went to see it. the movie theater had 12 theaters open for it. it was a lot better than the first. still nowhere near as good as the books. but sorry i think taylor lautner and charlie are the only ones who can act.



  53. 53

    I went last night, and it was AMAZING, it exceeded all my expectations. And for all you jerks out there, this book series/movie series is NOT just aimed at teens ok? I'm 25 years old and a mother of 2. Who the hell doesn't enjoy escaping the normal day to day with a little fantasy?? Get a damn grip. I live in Pittsburgh, Pa and I went to one of the biggest movie theaters in the city (maybe the biggest) and there were hardly any teenagers there. Mostly young adults. No one dressed up as vamps or werewolves, everyone was just happy and enjoying themselves. I had a fabulous time and was very very happy with the film. It's 10x better than Twilight, the acting was better, the music was so cohesive with the scenes, it was definitely a fantastic movie. It followed the book very closely as well, which I'm sure is making all the fans very happy. Jeez I'm so sick of hearing people bitch about these movies. It has a very strong following, just like Harry Potter, except maybe bigger. It appeals to EVERYONE, of ALL ages. Not just 14 year old kids. Quite being so damn close minded. Have any of you critics actually read the books???? Probably not, so back off.



  54. 54

    yyyyessss.



  55. 55

    I saw it at midnight!! I live in a small town, and it was insane.. Pushing, shoving, screaming while waiting in line to get into the theaters… The cinema showed it on all 8 screens too..

    The way people were acting you'd have thought Robert Pattinson was in the theater.

    MADDNESS.. But the movie was awesome



  56. 56

    YES! so awesome!



  57. 57

    I SAW IT!! TEAM JACOB ALLL THE WAYYY



  58. 58

    As usual bonehead, a day late and a dollar short on this story. Have a great weekend!



  59. 59

    Coming from a huge book fan and NOT a critic I LOVED IT! THANK YOU CHRIS WEITZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even Kristen was good! Taylor stole the show though :)



  60. 60

    Twilight made $380 million worldwide, and sold 8 million DVDs.
    So, it's not a big surprise that New Moon will make huge money too.



  61. 61

    I went to see it at midnight. My theater had some MAJOR problem. movie started at 12:45, then at 2:20 am (in the middle of the Voltri confrontation) someone pulled the fire alarm and they stopped the movie and we had to evacuate the theater. then they had problems restarting the move.

    I loved the movie. much better than the book.



  62. 62

    went at 10 pm thursday night in Montreal.
    i'm a big fan, and i really didnt like it.
    total dispointment, awful acting.
    taylor lautner was the only one capable of acting,
    even dakota fanning was awful.
    there was so much hype for her in this film, she said 4 words.



  63. 63

    OMG I sooooooooo loved it… Saw it at 12:01 and although I'm not enduring a long, tiring 10.5 hour work day with limited amount of sleep I don't regret it one little bit!!!!!! Team Switzerland, how can u NOT love both?!?!?!?!?!? lol



  64. 64

    it was AMAZING! definitely worth the 8 hour wait in line haha. loveeeed it



  65. 65

    It was so much better than the book! New Moon was easily my least favorite book… possibly tied with Breaking Dawn. I was never a Team Jacob fan.. but after watching the movie… I kinda think Edward's a dick. ALSO it was way funny when R-Patz took off his shirt at the end of the movie (everyone laughed) because we'd been seeing 8 packs the whole movie and then we see his digitally altered abs… SUch a joke! But his movie for "remember me" looks super cute



  66. 66

    It all sucks, the books, movies ,etc.

    You are all a bunch of mindless idiots for even spending a modium of money to watch this garbage.

    And he said "predictions" its not a fact. Harry Potter&the Dark Knight actually have actors/directors/writers with talent.



  67. 67

    LOVED IT ,
    IM SO TEAM JACOB NOW

    GOD…THAT BODY, FACE, PERSONA: THE WHOLE PACKAGE



  68. 68

    PEREZ, NOW I KNOW WHY YOU SAY KRISTEN IS ANNOYING
    HER ACTING FROM OTHER MOVIES IS THE SAME PERSON,
    JUST LOOK AT AMERICAN HAUNTING

    BUT EDWARD + JACOB = A PLUS



  69. 69

    OMG!!! It was AMAZING!! Loved every minute of it!!! Edward is Beautiful!



  70. 70

    this twilight shit is so LOL



  71. 71

    I saw it at 8 - best movie ever!



  72. 72

    saw it at midnight and it was pretty good! I am a huge fan of the books and it followed the book really great. the acting kinda sucks but its to be expected. they did a really great job on it! soundtrack was awesome.



  73. 73

    Haven't seen it yet but I've got tickets for tonight. I hated Twilight, so hopefully New Moon is better.



  74. 74

    yes i did it was amazing!!!!!!!!!! i loved it !!!!!!



  75. 75

    I took 3 teenagers with me and we all loved it. It was fun and the tale is as mesmerizing as ever. Pure enjoyable fantasy. Loved it.



  76. 76

    I lovvvvved it! Taylor Lautner is absolutely gorgeous!! Rob wasn't looking so bad himself. There were a few parts I was sad they left out, but overall it exceeded my expectations!! I can't wait til June, 30 for Eclipse!



  77. 77

    yes yes i did :D



  78. 78

    Re: titismack – Couldn't agree more!!!! I'm soooo tired of TwiTards



  79. 79

    I saw the 10pm advanced showing in Ottawa, On and there was a lot about it that I enjoyed more then the first one, and Robert Pattinson was as dreamy as ever. And although I'm not Team Jacob. I will hand it to Taylor Lautner that he did a fantastic job. However I was a little let down by the rest of the cast, especially Kristen Stewart and Ashley Green. I love them both but just don't feel they made the cut in this film. I think there might have been to much pressure on the shoulders. But other then that I enjoyed it!!! It just has a lot to live up too.



  80. 80

    Yess! It was good made me want to cry when she screamed in her sleep, it was reeally cheesy in some parts but in all i really liked it!



  81. 81

    i saw it! it was amazinggg



  82. 82

    I saw the midnight showing and LOVED it! Although i'm still team Edward I dislike Jacob alot less now after watching the movie. In the books Jacob annoyed me to no end but Taylor was awesome in it!



  83. 83

    All theaters were sold out, lucky we got ours ahead of time! it rocked even though I only seen 3 sec of Cam Gigandet but Taylor made up for it.



  84. 84

    Stood in line for 90 minutes to get into the theater and it was SOOOOO worth it!! I'm going to see it again!!



  85. 85

    I went to the midnight showing in new jersey and let me juss say it had me since the beginning of the movie i loved it. rob,kristen, and taylors acting was so much better. im really happy that it stayed true to the book there were a little scenes that were different but it didnt interfere with what was going on in the movie. every time the wolves would show up on screen i would be soo into it . chris wietz did a good job capturing the movie and wat i imagined the wolves in the book. overall i loved it soooooooooo much.



  86. 86

    I wishhh I did!!!! couldnt get tickets!!!!!



  87. 87

    Yes I saw it and it was amazing! The 3:00 showing was sold out as well!



  88. 88

    I SAW did!!1 great visual cnady!!! i was sooo trying hard not to sleep near the last 30 minutes, and i had to work the next day, woke up at 5:45 am!! lol
    but it was woth it.



  89. 89

    All the theaters here were sold out, but I bought my ticket in advance and did not wait in line :) It was done a lot better than Twilight….



  90. 90

    kstew was a bit better this time i have to admit… she is ok in the depressed or awkward scenes, it's just everything else where she sucks. and she seemed better when taylor was with her. easier to watch when she was with him… i wish there would have been more of carlisle!! yum!



  91. 91

    OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG
    IT WAS AMAZING!!! AHHHH I LOVED IT I AM GOING TO GO SEE IT AGAIN TONIGHT!!!!!!
    OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMOGMOMG



  92. 92

    I saw it at midnight & it was wayy better than twilight which is exactly how a sequel should be.
    i saw harry potter at midnight too but i was disappointed because they focused more on teen angst. but i should say-overall i love harry potter & batman more! :)



  93. 93

    ok to all the people that talk crap about gays all that about 14 year olds likeing twilight thats not true .first of all iam not 14 and im not gay but u know what i dont think u should judge others look in the mirror and if u dont like what u see change urself .to all the peole that are gay theres nothing wrong with u everybody is speacial gay or straight . i love twilight rob is hot but kristen cant act at all she sucks



  94. 94

    of course i did…….it was great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  95. 95

    I saw it, it was AMAZING! i waited in line for 4 hours! OMG it was amazing, the movie was amazing, and i had a blast.



  96. 96

    I did! It totally exceeded my expectations! Edward was beautiful in this one…he was in the first, but this one…just speechless!



  97. 97

    thought it was good BUT… Kristen Stewart can't act for shit and the ending TOTALLY sucked!!!!!!!



  98. 98

    What is with all of these teen age chicks and vampires. I remember in high school a bunch of girls reading Ann Rice novels. I like vampires but goddamn. Remember The Lost Boys.. good movie but my sister had it on tape and new every friggin word.



  99. 99

    I saw it and it was AMAZING! Also, Summit officially said that it broke the midnight showing record of ALL TIME! BEATING THE DARK KNIGHT! HAHAHA BITCHES!!!! But it was amazing! Taylor was amazing too! I just loved it.



  100. 100
