Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart dominate internationally with Twilight: Eclipse
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
We’ve been trying to keep up with all of the success THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE is achieving at the box office. We know it broke the record for widest theatrical release and best Wednesday opening. Although this isn’t a record, it should be noted that TWILIGHT: ECLIPSE is doing exceptionally well overseas as well. Early estimates put the total haul on Wednesday at $19 million in only 22 markets, including Italy and Brazil. It opened in bigger markets like France and Australia on Thursday and Friday and those estimates haven’t come in yet. While the domestic haul for the film shouldn’t be much of a surprise, I think the rousing success the film is achieving internationally proves that people of all races, religions and ethnic backgrounds love their Twilight stars.
We’ll be updating the box office success as numbers come in and the film chases down the July 4th weekend record held by SPIDER-MAN 2. Eclipse stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Jackson Rathbone, Ashley Greene, Taylor Lautner, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed and Dakota Fanning.
