TWILIGHT' BREAKS MIDNIGHT RECORD
“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.
