Sizzling Times at the Box Office for Moon Die Hard Fans
Those in charge are now wondering if “Eclipse” will be a larger box office hit than “New Moon” or if they will receive a total domestic gross of about $300 million.
Since most of us have Monday off for the 4th of July holiday, this movie is predicted to gross big bucks in the first week, more close to $200 million.
More than $1 million of “Eclipse” ticket sales Tuesday night came from Imax screens according the Los Angeles Times.
“Eclipse” has the advantage of being the first “Twilight” movie to open in the summer and also the first to play on Imax screens — 193 total — which carry higher ticket prices. However, “Eclipse” also easily broke the previous record for midnight ticket sales in the summer: $22.2 million for “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” last summer.
