Not only is Eclipse the best Twilight movie yet, but it’s also raking in the most cash!
Give yourselves a round of applause, BFFs. Your desire to see Taylor Lautner shed his clothes made last night’s Eclipse the highest-grossing midnight showing of all time! With $30 million, Eclipse beat out previous record holder New Moon (surprise, surprise), which made $26.3 million in its midnight premiere back in Nov. 2009. But wait… that’s not the only record Eclipse broke!
It also broke the record for best-selling IMAX midnight release, with $1 million. The previous record holder for IMAX was Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which took in $959,000.
Wow, Eclipse is going to be even bigger than anyone expected!
