Box Office Mojo: 'Eclipse' boasted the largest Wednesday gross of all time, surpassing 'Transformers 2's $62 million

Eclipse has now broken it's 2nd record, but falls short of 1st day New Moon numbers.


From Box Office Mojo:

Playing on approximately 8,000 screens at an opening-record 4,416 locations, Eclipse still had a phenomenal debut, setting two other records. The vampire romance sequel boasted the
largest Wednesday gross of all time, surpassing Transformers:
Revenge of the Fallen
's $62 million. It also logged the
top-grossing summer day ever, surpassing The Dark
Knight
's $67.2 million.


Overall, Eclipse posted the second highest-grossing single day of all time, behind only its predecessor.


The last time June 30 landed on Wednesday and Independence Day landed on Sunday was in 2004. That's when Spider-Man 2 established the record for that holiday. It made $40.4
million on its Wednesday opening, or the equivalent of around $52
million adjusted for ticket price inflation. By its sixth day, it had
pulled in $180.1 million, or more than $230 million adjusted.


Even after opening on more screens than New Moon, New Moon's 1st day was higher.


Eclipse's full day came in at an estimated $68.5 million, falling short of New Moon's $72.7 million record ($26.3 million of which from its midnight launch)

I'm actually surprised that Eclipse fell short of New Moon. I mean, I'm not complaining as the previous record was still a Twilight movie but I though Eclipse would out perform New Moon in the single day opening category. I'm sure it will do much better in the long run as most people agree Eclipse is the best movie so far. We'll have to wait to find out!!!!

I went to the midnight show for Eclipse. I think that Eclipse will end up making more money because it has more action. Maybe they should think about a video game for the vampire wars, has that been done yet?
