Eclipse Continues to Break Records

| Filed under: Film FlickersTwilight

twilight.jpg

Thanks to all you Twi-hards out there, Eclipse brought in an estimated $30 million from more than 4,000 domestic theaters showing midnight Tuesday performances.

WoW!

The film hasn't even made it through opening day and it's already breaking records!

The previous record - $26.3 million - from midnight showings was set by New Moon back in November.

Will Eclipse take the reigns of the Twilight Saga and steal New Moon's record for best opening day of $72.7 million?

What do U think?

  2. 2

    God, people who buy into this Twilight shit have no lives.



  3. 3

  4. 4

  5. 5

    hopefully it's better than the first 2 - i'll find out in about 4 hours…..



  6. 6

    Re: April 20th – its wayy better than the 1st 2. i went at midnight. i mean its epic(:



  11. 11

    I Wasn't Really Moved W/ This One! I'm Waiting For Breaking Dawn NOW! This One Was My least Favorite Book.

    I think that the world is being taken over by teenage girls and their moms and that this crap ass story and craptacular acting job of the main characters (i've seen sock puppets with more emotion) is corrupting the english language and my own little sister and mother.
    And to those of you calling it the best movie ever - YOU HAVE NO TASTE!!!



  13. 13

    Yuck…melodramatic fluff packaged with mediocre acting and writing and it seems like people cant get enough. Good vampire flicks have come out the past few years like Daybreakers, Let The Right One In, and 30 Days of Night but you will hardly ever hear about them. After seeing box office numbers for this, Iron Man 2, and Transformers 2..I have come to the conclusion that people just like eye candy. Forget about everything else that makes a movie good.

    when will this crap end???

    saw it at midnight. TEAM JACOB!



  16. 16

    Yea, what Krissy and tallchick said.



  17. 17

    expect a HUGE first weekend, and very steep falloff as the weeks continue. The series is running out of steam, public perception the the franchise is very negative



  18. 18

    to those bitching and complaining - if you don't like it, don't watch it. sorry it bothers you so much that people find enjoyment in the fantasy that is twilight…………
    *
    i'm sure everything you've ever liked, everyone else did too. and everything you've ever liked wasn't annoying to others either……..in other words, jump down off the high horse…..

    I saw it last night. Loved it! Best movie in the series so far. Cheese factor is gone, great script, true to the book, made me remember why I loved the book. Can't wait for Breaking Dawn, if it continues at this rate, it's going to be Epic. Going again next week.



  20. 20

    April 20th go queef your views to someone who cares. Twihag.



  21. 21

    Here's the thing: I don't mind it, but I do find it annoying when people say that it's the best movie ever. It's not. It doesn't come close to movies like those put out by Disney, or The Dark Knight, or Star Wars.

    Team "Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart are in the Runaways, and that movie is better, so suck it".

    Tweens my ass! I attended the midnight showing at the Kips Bay Theater in Manhattan. The line wrapped around the block by 11:30 pm. Mind you, this was after letting people in 50 at a time for the past twenty minutes! Almost half the audience were men! The crowd was mostly 25-40 year olds. The film was amazing! Best of the three! David Slade knows how to play up the series' dark side! Loved every minute of it! My only complaint, the wolves were a tad huge, but who the eff cares. The movie was flippin' fantastic! Love all the good reviews from top critics on rottentomatoes.com. Wooo! ;)



  23. 23

    It was REALLY good. David Slade did an amazing job, and the actors all did WAYYYYYYY better. No lipbiting, no awkward kissing, no stuttering!!



  24. 24

    Re: loveprofusion – My theater too! I saw TONS of guys there. Heck, there were guys who came BY THEMSELVES! It's definitely a movie both male and females can enjoy!



  25. 25

    I'll wait for the DVD it will be out by the end of the summer. I was hoping this movie would not do as well. So…the fans and the cast will just go away. I rather see them in different movies. I'm done with the Twilight series.



  26. 26

    Eclipse was FANTASTIC!!!! Saw it at midnight with my HUSBAND!!! Best of the Saga so far!!
    Place was packed, sold out both shows-one was a 3 movie combo, the other was just Eclipse at midnight.
    This one will break New Moon's records…guaranteed!! (o:



  27. 27

    @loveprofusion - The men 25-40 were probably trolling for young teenage girls…



  28. 28

    Well, Harry Potter will still kick Twilight's ass when it comes out.



  29. 29

    yey! i was there last night at midnight. thought it was really good. each movie has been better than the last. can't wait to see what they do with breaking dawn's two films!



  30. 30

    lalalaloooved the movie!!



  31. 31

    this movie was a disappointment. i thought it was going to be so good i even waited 6 hours to watch it :/ they should have stopped on a high note with New Moon



  32. 32

    I'm enjoying reruns of "Dark Shadows" a vampire soap from the late 60's. Probably the best vampire series ever. Great costumes and great cast as well. Maybe just a suggestion if you're getting sick of this latest thing.



  33. 33

    my sister dragged me to this, I thought it was a porno with a teen rating. Although that taylor guy had a super hot bod, so it kinda made up for it.



  34. 34

    It was SOOOO good!!! It deserves to have the record!

    Re: Lena Parker-Duncan
    Yep….just like the last one did, huh? :/
    It will be the 1st of the 2 part finale, but……idk, u never know. People were getting loud for the trailer for HP last night…..but, they're movies. For our entertainment and enjoyment. Not meant to be a rivalry.
    This franchise is just the "little engine that could", wasn't expected to go anywhere really when they filmed "Twilight", they knew the books had their own following but never dreamed that the Saga would have made such an impact. They keep getting better with each movie. The stunts, acting, spec effects, etc. For those that only saw "Twilight", you might find "Eclipse" enjoyable if u would give it a try. LOTS of action for the guys, and lots of love for the gals. (And that's NOT meant to say that girls only want sappy love stories). It was actually really good. And I personally think the acting of the 3 main characters (part. Kristen and Taylor) have improved greatly with each movie. Some may be surprised if they were to try it! {o:



  36. 36

    If you don't like it, don't see it. Why do you give a crap about what other people like? Pull the stick out of your a**, get your own life, and stop worrying about what other people like. I love it! Some of you are too deep and insightful for Twilight, but you are leaving comments on perezhilton.com about Twilight. Give me a break!



  37. 37

    Re: Krisssy – Like you and the other millions of HP fans right???



  38. 38

    My favorite book in the series and the movie did it justice.



  39. 39

    I see it and yes it is excellent. And I would have waited in line for how ever long I had to just to see it. It is really that good. The best out of the Saga by far. I dont know who out there is Team Jacob and who is Team Edward but let me tell you that Taylor looked HOT as hell. Shirtless almost all of the movie. And for those who have not seen it yet that is all I am going to say. Go and see it and judge for yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I went at midnight and had to park in a parking garage on the third floor because all the parking was taken soley for eclipse. it was insane… but well worth it!
