In The Light Of Day, Breaking Dawn Scores $30.2 Million At The Box-Office In One Night!

| Filed under: Film FlickersTwilight


The numbers are in, and it looks like Breaking Dawn isn't going to be breaking the record of the boy who lived, but it's on it's way to besting it's own franchise record.

The Twi-hards were out in force last night, flocking out to 3,521 theaters across the country to see the midnight showings of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1. In one night, the movie cashed in $30.2 million, which is about on par with what Eclipse grossed on it's first night in theaters. However, it was about $13 million short of toppling Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 record ($43.5 million), but to be fair, BD was screening in fewer theaters and isn't being shown in the 3D. But that's neither here nor there.

Here is the real question: will the film beat it's own opening day record? To date, New Moon holds the title of the most lucrative of the bunch, bringing in $72.7 million on its first day out. Eclipse fell short of the record with $68.5 million.

Will Breaking Dawn reign supreme? Or will we have to wait until the final installment to see the BIG money roll in???

    2 things. In this day of technology and high def pictures, photoshop should neve rbe used. That movie poster is brutal. Other than that jay leno chin on her, people are supposed to have pores, photoshpping to make them look like clay is rediculous.

    They look like wax. Anyway, Im amazed how easy is to brainwash young females into watching these things (cause yes,… most are women), its obvious women are wanting romance and in a very desperate way lol.

    Re: Meaghan… – From what I know, rings on the right hand are when engaged. I dont know nothing about the movie, but I think they get married or something in it. Probably cause of it?.

    Re: bleahf – Where the engagement ring is worn depends on the culture. The American tradition, as far as I've known it, is that the engagement ring is worn on the same finger as the wedding band (the left ring finger). Other cultures have the engagement ring on the right hand.

    Re: Meaghan… – So that they can show both of them wearing rings from this angle on the poster, I would imagine.

    Let's be real. This didn't do the money that Harry Potter did because this series is garbage. The female lead is a TERRIBLE role model for young women, the writing stinks, the characters all stand around gaping at each other. Bleh. A thousand times bleh.
