According to Gossip Cop:
“The latest numbers are in, and Eclipse will rake in an estimated $89 million for the holiday weekend.
So far the film has made $161 million in North America and is expected to earn $181 million by the end of the holiday weekend.
Internationally, since opening in June 30, Eclipse has grossed an estimated $100.2 million from 42 territories.”

How does Eclipse rank overall this year? Box Office Mojo has the chart. It hasn’t been updated since Friday, but assuming the estimates are correct, than Eclipse should easily move ahead of Clash of the Titans and be in fifth place when solid numbers are release Monday afternoon.
New Moon capped out it’s nearly 6-month box office run at approximately 296 million the question is, “Can Eclipse pull off the same or exceed that total?” Many franchise movies put out stunning numbers, but they don’t always top themselves film to film. For example the Harry Potter films have always done well but the two most highest grossing film remains the first one.
