'Twilight: Eclipse' sets midnight record
While we were all busy discussing "Twilight'" fandom, news broke about just how strong the "Twilight" fan base is. "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" has set a new box office record for midnight showings, earning $30 million from its Tuesday witching (vamping?) hour shows alone.
Allow me to put that into perspective: that's more than "Knight and Day" made in its first five days in theaters.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, projections suggest the film will bring in $150 million between now and the end of the Fourth of July. I'm betting on even more.
And speaking of major summer blockbusters, feel free to submit your toughest summer movie trivia questions as part of this video chat I'll do tomorrow at 3 ET, following the Celebritology discussion. Questions can be related to "Twilight" or any movie (or movies) from summers past. It's your chance to stump me, which shouldn't be too hard considering how badly I've cracked during previous movie trivia-related videos.
