‘Twilight’ Takes in $7 Million from Midnight Shows

A midnight showing is just perfect for a film about vampires, and Twilight took advantage last night. According to Variety, Twilight grossed over $7 million from midnight screenings last night, which upped weekend projections of the film.

Initially forecasat with an opening weekend around $50 million, it is now said that the weekend gross could end up north of $60 million now. While the film was expected to be a hit with younger tween and teenage girls, it seems older females and younger boys are flocking to the flick as well.

The film is based on the first of five books by Stephanie Meyer, which has sold more than 17 million copies worldwide. Twilight can be seen in theaters today.

Twilight was released November 21st, 2008.

        You don't have sole dominion over the "homo" insults. Of course, since that's all you ever use, I'd say that you have some sort of fixation on homosexuality.

                Woah woah. I wasn't being affrontal. I meant it in the spirit of camaraderie, but if you're so f*cking on edge that you can't laugh a little bit, maybe you shouldn't be so hasty about accusing people of having things up their asses.

                          Did you know Robert Pattinson records? His music is actually pretty good.

                            I was incredibly bored by this film. Seeing the character of Edward look like a deer caught in headlights for an hour and a half is not entertaining. NOTHING HAPPENS!

                              Did you hear that? Entertaining? Maybe our writing ventures has a future after all?

                                  I agree Oli, I have been having a lot of fun reading the posts here for days, it has been very entertaining.

                                      Wow, I knew I shouldn't have skipped over this post the other day. So many people going back and forth. Hey, it's more entertaining than Twilight :).

                                        Our Matinee is now $7. I hate it.

                                          I always go to matinees. $5.50 where I reside. An even $5 for the first showing of the day. Generally less crowded and kids/teens are (or should be) at school. Then again my work schedule lets me do that. It's so nice being done with college. Whoo!

                                          Sadly, I'm sure I've spent almost $100 on movie tickets this year, for just myself. $27 of that went to TDK. Brilliant film.
