More than doubling the first film in the series, ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ grossed $140.7 million this weekend, making it the third biggest opening weekend in film history!!
“I dare say in all the office pools, I don’t think anyone had near this top gross,” says Summit Entertainment Distribution President Richie Fay.
So what are the top two films?
Heath Ledger’s ‘The Dark Knight’ still remains the top-grossing weekend box office film, bringing in $158.4 million in 2008, and Spider-Man 3 hold the second place slot with $151.1 million during its opening weekend in 2007.
