Austin American-Statesman - - THURSDAY BRIEFING -

“The Twi­light Saga” has rung up an­other record mid­night hour.

“The Twi­light Saga: Eclipse” took in more than $30 mil­lion from mid­night screen­ings Wed­nes­day, ac­cord­ing to dis­trib­u­tor Sum­mit En­ter­tain­ment.

That sur­passed the pre­vi­ous mid­night record of $26.3 mil­lion set on open­ing day last Novem­ber by its pre­de­ces­sor, “The Twi­light Saga: New Moon.”

The huge start for “Eclipse” puts the lat­est chap­ter in the vam­pire-ro­mance se­ries, star­ring Robert Pat­tin­son, Kris­ten Ste­wart and Tay­lor Laut­ner, on track for one of the biggest open­ing days ever.

“New Moon” also holds that record, tak­ing in $72.7 mil­lion in its first day.
