They may have failed to break any records, but we have a feeling that Summit Ent. and the Twilight franchise is not going to be displeased with their opening weekend.
Eclipse brought in a total of $275.5 million world wide over the fourth of July weekend, a weekend that’s not typically known for strong movie attendance.
Here in the US Eclipse did $175.3 million for the full 6 day release, which was just shy of the $179 million it’s predecessor, New Moon, did over last year’s Thanksgiving weekend.
Still it came out way ahead of the pack this weekend, with it’s closest competition in the US being The Last Airbender, which is expected to hit $70 million by the end of today.
By the way, we heard it sucked. Did you guys see The Last Airbender? How was it?
