Box Office Blockbuster movie "Eclipse" in Full Moon for Record Tickets Sales

Sizzling Times at the Box Office for Moon Die Hard Fans

"Eclipse," the third twilight saga installment of a film produced from the best-selling vampire romance novels, netted than $30 million at the box office in America and Canada Tuesday night. Something about showing a movie after the sun sets or after midnight about vampires, just seems to bring out the best in the huge following of movie goers. According to those keeping track - Summit Entertainment - they are still counting ticket sales, so numbers could be highers.
Midnight screenings are usually a great sign at theaters, especially for the kick off of summer movies.
Those in charge are now wondering if "Eclipse" will be a larger box office hit than "New Moon" or if they will receive a total domestic gross of about $300 million. \
Since most of us have Monday off for the 4th of July holiday,  this movie is predicted to gross big bucks in the first week, more close to $200 million.
More than $1 million of "Eclipse" ticket sales Tuesday night came from Imax screens according the Los Angeles Times.  
It appears that the huge following of movie stars Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart is paying off, if the recent premiere is any indication.
"Eclipse" has the advantage of being the first "Twilight" movie to open in the summer and also the first to play on Imax screens -- 193 total -- which carry higher ticket prices. However, "Eclipse" also easily broke the previous record for midnight ticket sales in the summer: $22.2 million for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" last summer.
