New Moon Box Office Results Setting Records

by at . Comments

From all indications, The Twilight Saga: New Moon box office results will be absolutely massive on its opening night this evening (or technically this morning).

Anyone surprised?

Advanced ticket sales for the second part of the series have sold out thousands of theaters, projecting an $85-100 million opening weekend for the film.

The first Twilight film brought in $69.6 million its first days.

According to MovieTickets.com, an online seller, New Moon is the #1 Advance Ticket Seller of all time, topping Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

Whether you're on Team Jacob or Team Edward, we know where you're going to be Friday night: theaters. Sorry, members of Team Volturi. No one likes you guys.

News organizations nationwide reported local theaters selling out, with many camped out for hours to stake out their spot for the heavily-hyped premiere.

Before even hitting the screen, 2,000-plus theaters sold out. Estimates indicate it already raked in $26.3 million with just its 12:01 a.m. screenings today.

That's an all-time high for midnight premieres.

When released, the final box office results are expected to be outstanding for the first weekend of its release, despite the mixed reviews it's drawn so far.

THG will be reviewing the movie after visiting one of those sold-out theaters tonight. Check back early tomorrow morning for our New Moon review!

I'm hesitant to see the movie - I was so dissapointed with the first one. I read the books first and felt they left so much of the story out - I mean, Robert Pattison on the big screen is hard to resist but can anyone tell me if they've dug a little deeper and stuck closer to the story for New Moon?
