‘New Moon’ eclipses ‘The Dark Knight’

Create Your Own Eberron D&D Adventures @ Dungeon Masters Guild

Even Batman couldn’t stand up to the combination of vampires, werewolves and tweens. Variety is reporting that “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” racked up $72.7 million on its opening day. Midnight showings at over 3,500 theatres accounted for $26.3 million of the total. This box office haul is enough to dethrone the previous champ “The Dark Knight,” which earned $67.2 million on its first day in theaters. The sequel also dominated the original “Twilight” movie, which brought in $36 million on opening day on the way to a $69.6 million weekend.

Having seen the Twilight faithful out in force this summer at the San Diego Comic-Con, I must say that I’m not surprised by this record-breaking opening. If nothing else, they are a dedicated, passionate bunch of fans. Having never read any of the books nor seen the movies, I may not understand them, but as one genre fan to another I certainly respect them. Well played Twi-hards, well played.
