We reported yesterday that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse debuted with a record-breaking Wednesday debut and, while it dropped off significantly yesterday, the film has almost reached $100 million after two days. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse took in an estimated $24.2 million on Thursday for a two-day tally of $92.8 million.
The film received some competition yesterday, with the M. Night Shyamalan film opening in theaters yesterday to a solid $16.4 million on its opening day. The figure also includes the $3 million the film took in during midnight screenings. The film was released in 3,169 theaters and it was said that more than half those theaters - 1,606 - showed the film in 3D.
Although The Twilight Saga: Eclipse's numbers are impressive, they are still down from last year's The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which took in $115 million in its first two days, en route to a $142.8 million three-day opening weekend.
We'll be sure to keep you posted on the box-office progress of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse as soon as more figures come in.
