New Moon: Third Biggest Opening in Movie History

by at . Comments

Looks like THG staff members weren't the only ones to attend a showing of New Moon this weekend.

Following our positive review of the Twilight sequel, final weekend numbers have come in for the film - and they're more impressive that Robert Pattinson's hair!

New Moon grossed $140.7 million during its first two days in release, the third best opening weekend in movie history. Only The Dark Knight and Spider-Man 3 fared better.

Thanks to Bella, Jacob and Edward, New Moon is setting box office records.

Twilight took home $69.6 million over its opening weekend. The third film in the franchise, Eclipse, will try to out-earn both these installments in June 2010.
