Twilight Saga Eclipse takes in an estimate of $68 million on its Wednesday opening, breaking the record held by Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen for the largest Wednesday opening ever. This isn’t surprising. But welcome news for H’wood which is suffering from a weak summer both critically and financially.
They rolled out a black carpet for this premiere. But nothing mournful about either the stars or fans reaction to the event. Sample a bit of the madness in these videos:

In its third weekend of release, New Moon expanded its number of screens from last week, and reaped the benefits — pulling in an estimated $15.7 million at the domestic box office. This made it #2 for the weekend. It brought the film’s domestic total to $255 .6 million. The worldwide gross for the film has reached $498.6 million.
The recent box office success of the New Moon wasn’t the only place the Twilight Saga has shined this year. It’s also been one of the top searches on the Internet this year.
Yahoo has “The Twilight Saga” as the second biggest search term this year. Google places “New Moon” as number six is fastest rising search terms globally. However, it didn’t break Bing’s top ten list for the year.
It’s also worth noting that it’s the only movie franchise to be on any of the lists.
According to estimates, New Moon pulled in $72 million on Friday, blasting past the previous single day record of $67 million set by The Dark Knight. Industry mavens suggest that New Moon is on track for a $125 million weekend.
This all proves that the Twilight Saga is a certifiable phenomenon. It also shows that the right material, produced at a reasonable budget, can produce blockbuster results. New Moon’s budget was only $37 million.
