Box Office Breakdown: Twilight Eclipses Competition

Twilight Eclipse

Summit Entertainment saw fireworks at the theaters this holiday weekend.

The four-day frame ended with hauling in approximately $83.6 million. Although the David Slade-directed installment easily dethroned reigning champ Toy Story 3, the sequel actually failed to surpass the previous outing. Last fall, The Twilight Saga: New Moon grossed $178.9 million over six days. Eclipse, on the other hand, only raised $176.3 million since opening last Wednesday.

Meanwhile, scathing reviews didn’t keep from raking up a sizable share of the box office pot. M. Night Shyamalan’s take on Nickelodeon series fought off critics to earn $51.8 million over four days. Overall, the $150 million production has totaled $69.3 million domestically since its Thursday debut.

VIDEO: New Twilight Eclipse Trailer


Viewers got exactly what they wanted from the on Sunday night - a sneak peek at the newest installment in the Twilight Saga.

Watch the above video clip to get a brief look at which opens in theaters on June 30, 2010.


Robert Pattinson Fears Non-Twilight Films

Robert PattinsonDespite already landing roles outside of the vampire series, Robert Pattinson finds taking on work outside of the Twilight franchise “scary.”

The actor, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the hit movie series, says that it is more difficult to take on new roles now that he is so famous because there are so many things to consider.

“You get offered stuff that you would never dream of getting offered before, but that’s also scary. You don’t have to audition for anything. But I don’t want to do a movie just so it gets made. You have to question yourself a lot more. Before Twilight, I did any movie that I got offered, and you’d try and make the best of it afterwards. But now, you’re expected to come into the movie and provide not only economic viability, but also a performance as well. You can’t just mess around. People are like, ‘We’re employing you to be here, as a star and an actor.’ It’s difficult, and it’s scary.”

After recently working on the third Twilight movie, Eclipse, Robert is looking forward to taking on some radically different projects before getting to work on fourth installment Breaking Dawn.

“I think the tentative time for Breaking Dawn is fall next year. Depending on how things go, I’m doing a movie called Bel Ami in February, an adaptation to a Guy de Maupassant novel. And I’m doing - I hope - a Western with Rachel Weisz and Hugh Jackman called Unbound Captives sometime around there as well. They’ve got to try and juggle things around until everybody’s schedules work.”


Robert Pattinson Can Beat Jacob, Not Taylor

Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson

Despite my leaning towards anything in favor of vampires, I must admit that it’s obvious who won the abs contest between Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson. So who would win between Edward Cullen and Jacob Black? Pattinson seems to have it all figured out—based on the books, of course:

“Looking at Taylor’s martial-arts videos from when he was, like, 9, I wouldn’t really want to do anything [to make him angry]. Maybe if I had some kind of weapon. But if Edward and Jacob [fought], I think it’s actually a fact that Edward would win I think, if I read the books correctly. So I guess I could hold onto that for my ego.”

I don’t know what movie you were watching, Robert, but… (vague spoilers after the break!)
