THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE Sets Wednesday Opening Record With $68.5 Million

     July 1, 2010

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse finished out its first day in theatres by grabbing the record for the single best Wednesday debut of all-time with $68.5 million. That estimate includes the $30 million brought in from the film’s midnight and early morning screenings (a record) at 4,416 domestic locations (yep, that’s a record too). Though that figure tops Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’s previous Wednesday record as well as the $67.2 million debut of The Dark Knight, Eclipse’s total ultimately fell short of the $72.7 million all-around single day record set by New Moon last November. So, OK. One record got away from them. Eclipse still has the next five days of holiday goodness ahead of it and lots more money to make. So no one needs to feel disappointed here.
