NEW MOON Dethrones HARRY POTTER and DARK KNIGHT for Midnight Box-Office Take

MovieTwilightby Joey Paur


It happened, the Twilight fanatics came out in full force on opening night. Summit Entertainment has announced that The Twilight Saga: New Moon has broken box office records, earning over $26.27 million in midnight screenings from 3,514 theaters.

The previous records were held by Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince with $22.2 million, and Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, which earned $18.4 million for the midnight showings. Also, Summit’s re-release of the original Twilight on Thursday night on 2,057 screens resulted in $1.3 million in ticket sales.

I'm pretty sure that Twilight will take the number one spot at the box-office this weekend.

Do you think NEW MOON will break anymore records?
