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.

The town has a population of less than four thousand, but it now might get that many visitors in a single month. Visitors to Forks can go on a full-out Twilight tour, visiting everything from Bella Swan’s pick-up truck to the officers where Dr. Cullen works. The tiny logging town has …for better or for worse.

Before we found out about a town called Forks in the west, horror buffs had a smaller Mecca toward which to flock in the east: Burkittsville, Maryland. Anybody remember a little movie called ?

New Eclipse Trailer Unveiled


“As long as we get to kill some vampires.”

Although I haven’t yet read past the first Twilight book, there is one thing I can say with absolute certainty about this new trailer: There are a lot of vampires in this clip—enough to make a whole army.

Like what you see? Then be sure to tune in May 13 to Oprah—that’s when , Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner all visit the talk show queen.

The movie will then open on June 30, just over two months from now.

Blind Side Eclipses New Moon on Thanksgiving

Bella and Edward in New Moon

Despite predicted dominance at the box office this Thanksgiving weekend, Twi-hards seemed to be too busy stuffing their faces with food to keep up with movie-goers set to see Sandra Bullock‘s football drama The Blind Side.

Raking in $9.5 million, The Blind Side rushed ahead (barely) of New Moon, which received $9.2 million—raising its cumulative total to $188.4 million.

Will this keep up the rest of the holiday weekend? While I certainly do not possess Alice Cullen’s psychic abilities, I’ve surmised ten reasons as to why the latest installment of The Twilight Saga could be losing its box office grip.
