Thanks to the fervent Twi-hards who were first in line to watch the love triangle between Edward, Bella and Jacob, the third installment of the Twilight franchise, Eclipse, broke box offices records in its first night!
The blockbuster opened to an astounding $30 million on its first night/morning in North America, Gossip Cop reports.
Eclipse surpasses the previous midnight record holder, New Moon which raked in an impressive $26.3 million.
New Moon earned $72.7 million on November 20, 2009 to set the all-time opening day record — we have a feeling this stat will be eclipsed as well!
It must have been the highly-anticipated tent scene between Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner that prompted more fans than ever before to see the film on its debut night/morning!
