    NEW MOON IS THIRD HIGHEST


    Yesterday, Green Tea Movie reported a double record strike for the latest in The Twilight Saga, when New Moon posted an astonishing US$ 72.7 million on its first day receipt intake to become the highest opening day ever, beating The Dark Knight's previous US$ 67.2 M. To top of that record, its midnight gross of $ 26.3 million also flatted out Harry Potter 6's gross of record $ 22.2 million, also a new record.

    With the falling been expected at a huge plunge, New Moon is still able to withstand and enjoys a better than industrial expectation when it is estimated to have grossed $140.7 million, the third in the history of opening weekend. The number shows that unlike The Dark Knight, New Moon is pretty front-loaded. Therefore, New Moon is not expected to beat the ultimate record held by the cape crusader.

    Next week gross may see even larger fall for the vampire flick. The question now is how much longer New Moon can hold up with chances of crossing over the $300 million mark is still a possible.

    Adding in the impressive record, the foreign gross was also impressive. From 25 territories outside United States, New Moon raked in US$ 118 million, a combined US$ 258.7 million worldwide. The first week international take slightly ahead of US$ 100.5 million of 2012 on its second weekend.

    The Twilight Saga: New Moon ranked third behind The Dark Knight ($ 158.4M) and Spider-Man 3 ($ 151.1M) but ahead of POTC: Dead Man's Chest ($ 135.6M) and Shrek The Third ($ 121.6M).
