Eclipse Breaks Box Office Record for Midnight Showings

by at . Comments

Eclipse is the best Twilight Saga film to date.

Perhaps this helped the movie set a box office record early this morning, but we have a feeling it would have done quite well even without THG's glowing review.

The third film in this franchise broke the second film's record haul for midnight showings today, as Eclipse pulled in a whopping $30 million across 4,416 screens nationwide. That figure also marks the widest release of all-time, bumping Iron Man 2 down a notch.

New Moon grossed close to $300 domestically during its run, while the original Twlight topped out at $193 million. Expect Eclipse to sky-rocket past both those numbers.

Just how huge has the Twilight Saga become?

In an incident both depressing and hilarious, Elena Kagan was asked about it during her Supreme Court confirmation hearings today. As you can see below, she refrained from commenting on her affiliation with Team Jacob or Team Edward.

I guess reviews don't matter any more. I have read 4 reviews so far for this movie and every single one of them has been terrible!!! I am sure many teens (and some adults) will be returning to the theatre to watch this over and over. Well, thankfully, it's THEIR money, not mine!!!!
