Eclipse Lights Up The Box Office

Yowza! The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has brought home the bacon! If final estimates are correct, the third film in the super successful franchise will have made $69 million from Friday to Sunday. That gives it a total US cume of $181 million in just six days. M. Night Shayamalan’s The Last Airbender 3D opened up huge as well bringing in $41 million for a second place opening. The live action adaption of the Nickelodeon show is supposedly part one in a franchise. Toy Story 3 continues to make bank as it collected an additional $31 million. With a strong Monday expected, it should bring its US total to $301 million. This would make it the animated film with the fastest run to the $300 million mark in history!
