‘Twilight’ on Track to Have Weekend Sales of $80.2 Million

“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” the latest film in the teen-vampire series, had sales of $28.6 million yesterday, putting it on track to make about $80.2 million in its opening weekend July 2-4, Box-Office said.

The movie, from Summit Entertainment LLC, is the third in a series based on Stephenie Meyer’s books and is opening in a record 4,416 theaters. The first two “Twilight” films earned more than $1.1 billion in global ticket sales, according to research Box Office Mojo.

The weekly film rankings are based off receipts for the Friday-Saturday-Sunday period.

Summit opened “Eclipse” on June 30, and sales since Wednesday have totaled $121.3 million. It had sales of $68.5 million on Wednesday, according to box-office tracker Box-Office, and a record $30 million in midnight showings that day.

Summit plans two more movies based on Meyer’s fourth book, “Breaking Dawn.”

The films focus on Bella Swan, a teenager whose move to a small town puts her in the company of vampires and werewolves. In “Eclipse,” Swan, played by Kristen Stewart, must choose between two suitors, vampire Edward Cullen and werewolf Jacob Black.
