The Twilight Saga’s eagerly anticipated third instalment garnered the biggest opening weekend of the year so far, as excited Twi-hards flocked to see the flick.

So high was the demand for tickets that some screens opened box offices over a month before the film was released, with many even putting on special midnight screenings of the flick.

Eclipse beat the year’s previous biggest film – Alice In Wonderland – by around £3 million, after the 3D flick took £10 million during its opening weekend back in March.

The movie also Eclipses New Moon’s takings, after it raked in £11 million during first showings last year.
