Eclipse closing in on a Half A Billion Dollars at Box Office!

According to Gossip Cop and The Hollywood Reporter, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is still going strong at the box office domestically and overseas totalling $456 million to date.

Gossip Cop:

After two weekends in theaters, Eclipse continues to be strong.

The third installment in the Twilight Saga has earned $33.4 million this weekendat 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.

Well, I'm sure that most of you Twihards are still high on Eclipse fever. Despite the omission of the leg hitch, I bet there's still a whole lot of you who have seen the movie at least 2 times (or 5 or 10!). In my honest opinion, Eclipse is definitely a step up from the previous 2 movies. I'm glad that Nikki Reed and Jackson Rathbone had the opportunity to showcase their acting chops with Rosalie's and Jasper's backstory. Now, we'll wait for the release of the DVD so that we could watch the leg hitch, I mean the proposal scene again and again and again ... ;)
