The movie hasn’t even hit theaters yet (it will tomorrow morning at 12:01 AM), but already The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has set a new Hollywood record: largest domestic release in history.
A record 4,416 theaters will have the opening of the third installment of the popular vampire story. This tops Iron Man 2 just barely by 36 venues. Not too bad for a bunch of kids from Forks, Washington!
Over on the MoviePosterShop Facebook page we’re giving away an Eclipse poster to the person who can most closely guess the extended weekend box office take for Eclipse. Just how much will Stephanie Meyer’s story rake in, starting with a Wednesday release and going all the way through Monday? It’s hard to say, but I’m guessing we’ll see some GIANT numbers for Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Co.
