The Twilight Saga is no longer the king of midnight shows, because its record has been broken by ... The Twilight Saga.
Whatever the critics thought of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (and as ours wrote yesterday, "You want a good Twilight movie? Keep dreamin'"), audiences didn't seem to mind.
The third episode in the Twilight franchise took in $30 million from its Wednesday night midnight screenings alone, the most for ANY movie's midnight screenings, even beating out the $26.3 million taken in by the new film's predecessor, The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
The total take for the first Twilight was $392.5 million from box offices worldwide, and New Moon raked in $709 million worldwide. Based on how Eclipse did Wednesday night, do you think it will break those records?
