“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” drew an estimated $161 million out of North American theaters in its first five days of release, a spectacular if not quite record-breaking result. And audiences defied critics to make “The Last Airbender” No. 2.
The gross was big enough to rank “Eclipse” third on Hollywood’s all-time list of Wednesday-opening movies, behind “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” (2009) and “Spider-Man 2” (2004), when adjusted for inflation, box office analysts said.
