The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Earned $30 million After Midnight Screenings

I watched the two previous offering of this movie and most of the viewers were teenager and alike because this movie although it is about vampires but the romance is there where the teenagers were tickled. I love the first two released too as I am young at heart and I like vampire movies. Now according to the news “The twilight Saga: Eclipse,” which debuted on Wednesday make a record-breaking of $30 million box office in screening just after midnight.

According to North American ticket sales, this movie beat the predecessor “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” with only $26.3 million for any movie’s midnight screenings.
According to critics the movie boosted its romantic storyline but overall the active and execution were not satisfying. The “eclipse” is more entertaining than the two predecessors with added humor, more violence and true the film’s title, a deeper intimation of darkness.

Box office unfazed according to Reuters Report:
But reviews may not matter for the teen market who have embraced the first two films as much as they have Meyer's books, and the midnight screenings certainly brought out loyal followers known as "Twi-hards."

The initial "Twilight" sucked $392.5 million from box offices worldwide and its sequel, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" raked-in $709 million worldwide.
And whether they can act or not, the franchise's stars have profited. Both Pattinson and Stewart were ranked in this week's Forbes' magazine 2010 celebrity power list, earning $17 million and $12 million respectively in 2010. Author Stephenie Meyer made $40 million.

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times said while part of the movie didn't work, including the special effects, "the audience watched this film rapt with attention" and in summing up, said "The 'Twilight' movies are chaste eroticism to fuel adolescent dreams."

To sum up the movie, many reviews noted the line from the film that seemed to most epitomize the stand-off between Edward and Jacob over their competing affections for Bella. Jacob tells his rival: "Let's face it, I'm hotter than you."
