Twilight Eclipse smashes US box office records

The third film in the Twilight saga is set to be the biggest yet, as it shatters midnight records

It was released just hours ago in the States, but Twilight Eclipse is already shattering box-office records.

Hitting cinemas at midnight last night, the third film in the vampire saga raked in a massive $30 million before dawn had even broken.

It beats the previous Twilight movie for the top midnight takings, with New Moon grossing $26.3 million, Variety reports.

And it’s set to break records left, right and centre. As it opens across the US today, it will become the widest release in Hollywood history, breaking the total previously held by Iron Man 2.

Meanwhile, Eclipse mania is set to hit the UK today, as the London premiere takes place tonight. We’ll be reporting live from the big event, so make sure you follow us on Twitter for all the gossip straight from the red carpet.
