New Moon Breaks the Single-Day Box Office Record 2009-11-21 10:31:49

New Moon Breaks the Single-Day Box Office Record

In its second day of release, New Moon has already broken two box office records. It set a new high for midnight ticket sales, and yesterday it became the biggest single day earner, taking in over $72 million! The record was previously held by The Dark Knight, which earned $67.1 million.

Now the question remains: can New Moon go on to have the biggest opening weekend of all time? Will it land on the legendary list of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters?

Umm, actually that's correct Mrs. Johnson. I'm just saying people should be aware of who they're giving their money to. But thanks for the lovely sarcasm.

I watched the movie yesterday and I absolutely loved it. I liked all of it and the best part was Rob as Edward, he was exceptional, I could really feel his pain.I am not surprised the movie did this good. Good job!! I can't wait for Remember Me now and Eclipse yeahhh!!!

Yeah, I don't really care too much for the movie/series, so I'm kind of annoyed that's it's breaking records because it will go down on the books, yet it's still a bad movie with bad actors. I just don't see it being that deserving.

I wish all the people who paid money to see the movies and the books realized just how rich they are making the Mormon church (The author has to give at least 10% of her earnings as a member of that faith). If you support them and their political agenda (i.e. up to 40 percent of donations for California's prop. 8 came from the church) that's fine, otherwise, I'd consider waiting and borrowing the DVD from a friend.

As Rachel Zoe would say, O-O-C.

I'm sorry I really dont understand the hype behind all of this. I hadnt seen Twilight nor did I have any interest to, but one of my girlfriends wanted to see it and didnt want to go alone so she paid for my ticket and I went. We watched the first movie beforehand so I could be up to speed, but fast forwarded through most of it (watched the whole movie in about 35 mins) because she was saying it wasnt that important. THe acting was terrible and it was totally cheesy. Then I saw New Moon last night - got about an hour into it and fell asleep. This story is nothing new...its just that it has to do with vampires now. The acting in the 2nd one was better than the first, but Ive seen Kristen Stewart in many indie movies and she is actually a good actress, where you would never know that from these movies. I just dont see the appeal to the whole saga at all.

i'm not at all surprised by this - i think that everyone's been so excited about this movie for such a long time. now if only it had fulfilled my expectations - i would see it a 2nd time like i did the first one but nope - 1x for now is good enough for me. i can't wait to hear about the records that it breaks for opening weekend.

I would definitely agree that the look of the vamps did not equal Twilight (the wigs were horrendous). But of course it didn't, Twilight had a FEMALE director...we pay attention to stuff like that. Overall the movie was good, it had more action, a better flow, and was closer to the book. BUT they could have done better!

They have the media and every celeb site to thank for the big lines at the box office. If this fugly guy wasn't shoved down everyone's throats for the last year as if he was some kind of fugly god to be idolized by all tweens, not as many would care about this movie. I hope they paid the media well.
