Eclipse Rocks The Box Office

Surprise! Surprise! Eclipse made a killing at the box office over the weekend.

The movie made an estimated $121.4 million from Wednesday to Friday, reports distributor Summit Entertainment.

The six-day total brought in a whopping $198.9 million.

Although it did really well, it did not break the box office records. Spider-Man 2 earned $180 million in its first six days in 2004 on Independence Day.

The first installment of Twilight brought in $88 million and New Moon raked in $179 million in its first six days.

Judging by initial estimates, Eclipse would take the number 3 spot of highest six-day openers. The Dark Knight had brought in $222 million and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen made $215 million.
