After two weekends in theaters, Eclipse continues to be strong.
The third installment in the Twilight Saga has earned $33.4 million this weekend at the box office in North America, bringing its total to $237 million domestically.
Internationally, the film took in another $81.1 million this weekend to bring its worldwide gross to $219 million.
That means, all across the globe, Eclipse has earned $456 million.
“Eclipse,” the third installment of Summit Entertainment’s “Twilight” franchise defied toasty summer weather in France and the U.K., opening No. 1 in these two key markets. Summit said the U.K. take was a jaw-dropping $21 million from 523 locations (including previews), the market’s biggest opening of 2010 and about $2 million more than “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” grossed in its market bow late last year.
The France gross opening tally was $12.4 million from an unspecified number of locales, also the highest opening market take of this year. By weekend’s end, “Eclipse” is expected to also be No. 1 in its opening round in South Korea and in its sophomore session in Australia — in addition to its first-place standing overall.
Half a BILLION!! Wow! Who still wants to see Eclipse again? *raises hand* ME!!
