Eclipse to Break New Moon Sales Total

eclipse-posterAfter the Monday box office numbers are in, in all probability, Eclipse will break the box office total set by New Moon. If not Monday, it will no doubt have it by Tuesday.

New Moon capped its box office run of 133 days with a figure of $296,623,634 domestically.

Twilight capped off its 147 day box office run with a figure of $192,769,854 domestically.

As of right now Eclipse, is on day 47 with a domestic total of $295,842,444.

The movie has been pulling in roughly $300,000 during weekdays  the last week. So, assuming that pattern continues, Eclipse will over take the New Moon total by the time figures are released tomorrow afternoon or Tuesday at the latest.

After this benchmark, it will be interesting to see if it can be the first primarily female driven film to crack the $300,000,000 mark since Titanic.

EDITED: It will make the cut based on the Tuesday box office results. It’s currently just shy, roughly $56,000 from tying New Moon’s total!

    holy crap in 47 days its already almost at nm ?? thats crazzyyy !! <3

  2. Knew that was going to happen, just a matter of time. So will BD.

    • Totally agree with you Mckee21, oh yee of little faith to the doubters, and a profound DUH, to everyone else! lol

  3. Great! I will be here popping the champagne when we reach the 300 million mark…so deserving!

  4. eclipse was more like the book was a great movie will watch it over and over.

    • I agree Dawn, it was more true to the book. I hope BD will be too, doing what they can do during some of the heavier scenes but staying close to the book.

  5. I’m so excited about this!!! Go us!! ;)

  6. I knew this was going to happen. We need to break the 300 million mark let’s do it people !!!

    • I’ve already pre-ordered the DVD on Amazon.com and waiting to see what the other sites will have when the DVD is finally released :)

  7. I would LOVE to see Eclipse break $300 million. Going to see where it’s still playing in the theaters and catch it one more time.

  8. WooooooHoooooo! Never underestimate the power of women!!!!

  9. I saw it 5 times and I have a lot of issues with it – imagine the box office blowout if they get BD right!!!!

    • same here… watched it a handful of times. liked it very much, but there were just a few things i just cant get over. one being the sound effects. Because apparently some ppl think the sound of marble/ stone breaking sounds like shattering glass… right.

      • Thank God I wasn’t alone in the shattering glass sentiment. I thought they were throwing plates at each other lol.

      • There was one more thing that didn’t seem very right to me…like Bella leaving with Jacob on his motorcycle right in front of Edward…I don’t think Bella would’ve ever hurt Edward like that, and I doubt that he would ever have let her go because he thought it was dangerous. Other than the shattering glass sound and this fact, I really loved Eclipse.

    • yes, I had a lot of issues with it as well. my main one was the ending and Bella telling Edward her choice was not about him. what!!! let’s hope they get BD right. but I’m not holding my breath.

  10. Yay us!! Anyone heard when Eclipse will be on DVD yet?

  11. I gotta know: when does the movie stop playing in theaters? Like, can I still go and see it?

    • AFAIK, it is still playing in first-run theaters. Then will appear in second-run theaters, then DVD release. I heard it was coming out on DVD in November(?).

  12. EW Vote to crown the champion!!
    please vote!! he’s losing!! “open for 96 hours only”

  13. Going to Eclipse again today! Let’s do it people, we can break the 300 million mark!!!!

  14. I’ll be delighted if Eclipse crosses the 300 million mark. I saw it thrice, would have seen it wayy more times but it’s already out of theatres in my area. Hope this news shuts up the people who think Eclipse was a letdown and didn’t do as well as NM.

    • I agree. I think this summer didn’t go well largely due to theaters cutting off the film’s run to make room for more movies like “kitty galore.” Disappointing.
