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.
