TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON BREAKS US BOX OFFICE RECORDS – TAKING £44M IN 24 HOURS

TWILIGHT: NEW MOON (REVIEW) 





TWILIGHT Saga: New Moon has broken US box office records by earning £44m in its first 24 hours of opening.

New Moon easily trounced the success of previous record-holding blockbusters, including Batman: The Dark Knight, which made £40m in its first day.

Since the vampire film began screening to the general public in the UK and US on Friday, it has grossed a hefty £84m across the pond.

And although sales figures on these shores are not available until Thursday, fans and critics alike can be sure the flick will experience a similar wave of success over here.

The picture took over £1 million in ticket pre-sales – making it the fastest advance-selling movie of 2009.

And considering New Moon cost just £30m to create, the Twilight Saga, which its stars admit they thought would only be a small-scale film, has far exceeded global expectations.


New Moon beat pre-sales for Star Wars, Harry Potter and The Dark Knight

In the States, more film-goers pre-booked tickets for the film than for Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince or The Dark Knight, according to cinema booking website Fandango.

As the flick based on Stephanie Meyer’s novels has not even been out in cinemas for a week yet – we can expect to hear much more where that came from.
