"Eclipse" Already Breaking Boxoffice Records!

"Eclipse" has finally been released (in most places, at least) and it's no surprise that within less than 24 hours of it's opening - it's already breaking records! As of right now, "Eclipse" has broken the following records: biggest domestic release, highest midnight gross (which we broke last year with "New Moon"!), and highest IMAX [for midnight screenings] gross. That's 3 records so far! Is anyone really surprised by this? Don't underestimate the power of the twihards! :]
Do you think we can finally cross $300million with Eclipse ? Also, how many times will you go see Eclipse ?

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse ripped into the record books with its midnight launch, grossing over $30 million at more than 4,000 theaters. That surpassed The Twilight Saga: New Moon's previous benchmark of $26.3 million. Included in Eclipse's sum was a new IMAX midnight milestone of over $1 million at 192 venues, topping Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen's $959,000.

Additionally, the first Twilight and New Moon were re-issued as a one-off, pre-Eclipse double-feature Thursday night at 2,037 theaters and made $2.4 million. Previously, Twilight took in $1.3 million in its re-issue the night before New Moon's opening.

Casting the widest opening net ever, Eclipse bit into a whopping 4,416 locations on Wednesday (more theaters are expected to be added on Friday).
