'New Moon' Eclipses Box Office Record

'New Moon' Eclipses Box Office Record

The Twilight Saga: New Moon pulled in a massive $26.3 million at North American box offices in midnight showings on Thursday (November 19).

The previous record was set by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which made $22.2 million in midnight screenings when it was released this past July.

The vampire romance movie will rake in a total of around $100 million in its opening weekend. That’s bloody amazing!

JustJared.com went to the NY screening last night and had so much fun meeting the cast at the after-party at The Box!

    Wow. 100 million. That’s the money it could’ve gone to feed America’s hungry children. Such a shame.

    It might not be the best movie in the world, but I think girls, women (and yes some men) are in love with the idea of romance in these movies. Unfortunately, this movie is very far from reality (I’m not talking vampires here) in terms of how relationships really work.

    Bo Says:

    I will not see New Moon
    Catherine Harwick is the creator of this film she hand picked all the cast from Twilight
    That is one part of being a great director, she also made this film a warm love story. essentially creating what it is today without the cast No New Moon. get it?

    in a business dominated by 95% male director

    I hardly call new moon this overly cgi’d up, buffy the vamp wanna be a real film worth seeing.

    Bring Catherine Back
