New Moon Stakes The Box Office

New Moon Stakes The Box Office

Kristen Stewart is making box office history!

The Twilight Saga: New Moon pulled in a massive $26.3 million at North American box offices in midnight showings on Thursday (November 19). WOW!

The previous record was set by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which claimed $22.2 million in midnight screenings when it was released this past July.

The vampire romance movie is projected to take in a total of around $100 million in its opening weekend.

Check out Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and the rest of the cast at the NYC screening!

  • cassy

  • nikki

    cuz all these little girls go to see robert, wen he isnt even cute, maybe his persanality is cute but not him

  • redspider

    oh great….more Twilight success….ugh! it’s SO overrated! come on people!!

  • lmao

    Wow. 100 million. That’s the money it could’ve gone to feed America’s hungry children. Such a shame.

  • Lucy

    Finally someone recognized Kristen Stewart as the main actor of the Saga. Yes, she’s making history!

  • Overated.

    @nikki: @redspider: Thank goodness some people agree with me. What the heck is so special about Twilight!? Someone tell me. The author of Twilight made Vampires look very weak. Vampires do not freaking sparkle when they step out into daylight. They die.

  • Steame

    Thank You, and yes I am glad Kristen is finally getting some recognition after all this are her movies and the books are her story (bella’s).
    I hope she got a nice paycheck out of this and they sent her on a long vacation, australia perhaps?

  • VHud_rocks!

    It’s because of twilight that make other movies lose their chances of success. Just saying,but I can’t wait to see New moon. It’s not out in my country yet.

    Come on seriously..There are other movies out that are probably way better than this movie.
    and whats the big deal about this movie or book anyway?
    You do know that books came out like a few years ago and ppl just started reading them last year bc of this..
    seriously ppl..

    this is all my opinion, but I’m just saying there are other movies out there that actually are important..

  • karen

    seriously people i do love twilight but the truth is it is WAY overrated. the books are amazing but the movies eeh? i mean i am so sick of how new moon is beating out harry potter. the harry pottercast deserve way more recognization (exept rupert,emma and danielle) im talkin bout tom felton, evanna lynch, matthew lewis. The movies and plot lines are much more interestu=ing than this piece of shit! (not talkin bout the books, i love stephenie meyer) i really was lokking forward to watching twilight but it dissapointed me ALOT! hopefully new moon will be better (tho i doubt it) BTW I KNO I’M GONNA GET A TON OF HATE FOR THIS! BUT HEY EVERY HAS THEIR OWN OPINION

  • I found it better than Twilight. And I also found Kristen&Taylor amazing together!

  • http://www.lifeofabarowner.com Marie

    Hey guys! Loved New Moon! Check out this parody of it!! So funny! I’m a Twilight fan and I loved it!

  • sumbudy frum englund

    its a shame that a movie like this beat such a phenomenon like harry potter. its a sham.

  • maichi

    TOO BAD THE MOVIE SUCKED. :)
    Box office doesn’t mean anything when your movie gets a 29 out of 100 percent of one of the most popular reviewing site on the internet.

  • maichi

    Seriously, this is Twilight:

    Edward can’t read Bella’s mind.
    They fall in love after like a week.
    She wants to be a vampire.
    They have a baby.
    Jacob “imprints” on her.
    They get married.

    This book is s stupid it hurts, not to mention the lack of decent vocabulary. Oh, and the fact that just because the book is said to be amazing, AUTOMATICALLY so’s the movie which is dumb because the actors, besides Ashley and Kellan, suck…

    Kristen Stewart smokes pot/weed- just saying.

  • SJS

    @Overated.: *hugs you* True. Oh, and… Team Harry Potter. Don’t matter who sells more. HP is written better.

  • katelyn

    To all you haters above, i love the Twilight Saga but didn’t expect much from the movie because the previous one wasn’t so great. But as a matter of fact, I was pleasantly surprised at New Moon, it was absolutely amazing when I saw it, besides one part that was utterly obsurd. I loved the movie, so how about you actually go and see it before you start bashing it!! You are all pathetic!!

  • katie

    I hated Twilight, but New Moon was amazing, period. And @lmao, you saying you don’t go and see movies at the cinema? That’s money that could be used to feed hungry children. Unless you don’t EVER go to the cinema, that’s very hypocritical.

  • me

    Have you haters actually seen new moon yet?
    I thought it was really good!
    & obviously twilight was good… thats why so many people went and saw new moon.. :)

  • ally

    The twilight saga ===best movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Pauline

    it’s not because they make history at the box office that mean it’s the best movie all the time! the critic sucks! lot of people who see the movie are very disappointed except the girls who scream when they see taylor lautner shirtless!

  • amy

    oh boy, like it needed another reason for me to hate it. Seriously its so overrated now its gone past the stage of funny. And i cant believe there is still at least 2 more too come :|

  • Jenny

    It really goes to show just how childish twihards can be when it comes to hearing negative comments about New Moon, just because many out there don’t like the books or the movies, with justifiable reasoning, you can’t go around calling them ‘haters’, it’s immature and goes to show exactly how old the fans of this movie really are. This movie will most likely make more than a $100 in the box office, however, the critics and a lot of the public have spoken, and the truth is that the movie sucked hardcore, not surprisingly, and quite honestly, they could break the box office this weekend, but in terms of worldwide collections overall throughout the next few weeks, fans of the movie shouldn’t expect any phenomenon as it’s not gonna surpass HP or even Transformers, if it does, well, let’s just hope that the hype dies out soon, it’s just annoying beyond comprehension.

  • rachel

    thx to u haters for adding more comments on this thread!

  • Katie

    OMG!! I am so glad they made that much money! The film was amaizing!! It had me in tears through most of it!!! I LOVE IT!!! xx

  • cassie

    movie is entertainment, so as long as I enjoy the movie, it’s a good movie to me. I don’t give a sh!t about what the critics or haters say about a movie I like/love.

    Some movies got splendid reviews from the critics, but they just bored me into sleep during the first ten minutes.

    I love twilight series. can’t wait to see eclipse and BD

  • Sarah

    @24#

    Spoken like a true twihard, seriously you people are just in over your heads with this crap.

  • Tom

    Not to many successful movies are this bad. Just think if they made a good movie how much more it would make.

  • http://jazy109@gmail.com jazmin

    SERIOUSLY if u dont like twilight why are u reading about it and why are you searching it and commenting about it you retards its great and it somtimes does get overrated but seriously dont be a hater just avoid it u dumb retards geez go taylor L. I love you

  • maichi

    @rachel:
    wow. just because we add more comments, doesn’t meant anything. most of the comments are bad, wow, so proud!! and who cares if new moon made alot, it got really really bad reviews. just because you’re so into the book, the movie is automatically amazing.

  • xoxo

  • florence

    PLEASE RESPOND! I AM FROM PARAGUAY AND I WANT TO WATCH THE MOVIE, BUT IT DOESN’T HIT THEATRES HERE YET- DO YOU KNOW HOW I CAN WATCH IT ON THE COMPUTER FREE?

    :)

  • elle

    i love harry potter AND twilight but im sorry, the acting in a lot of harry potter is appalling!?
    anyway i thought new moon was better than twilight! loved it x

  • TwiDiehard

    @Overated.:

    How do you know they die? Have you ever met a vampire? No. This is her representation, her world. If you don’t like it, then ignore it. Don’t even look at it.

  • look.

    @maichi: I’m not trying to start anything by saying any of this. Its just, when the twilight saga first came out as a book, it was popular but not as popular now. there are many different reasons why people like this series. Reason One: We love to see a story we love turn into a visual that we can all enjoy. Reason Two: You havent even read the books and you just think the characters are hot. So really, i think you should be less generalized about where you gear your statements. Whats so wrong about liking a good book series? Just because we like it does that mean were obsessed and want to marry Robert Pattinson? No. I have to admit, i read all the books, and i didnt think Twilight was all that great. But that doesnt mean that i dont like the series anymore. I am hoping all the other movies are good and i am staying loyal.

  • pppp

    I saw it at midnight :)

  • gold baybay

    @ninnia:

    That comment makes no sense whatsoever. Your first language obviously isn’t English.

    I still have yet to see the film. I’m watching it for Taylor Lautner and Dakota Fanning. If I like it, that’s great, if I don’t, I wasted my money.

  • Jordan

    Went to see it and all I can say is I wanted to cry. whoever wrote the screenplay must have never read the book. More than 2/3rds of the book were completely ignored. I went to see Twilight 5 times in the theater. This was the only time I’ll go see New Moon :(

    Nothing against the actors. They can only work with what they are given. But Bella just whines for an hour and a half.

    Saddest thing is New Moon ruined the whole Twilight series for me. I really can’t picture myself being interested in seeing Eclipse now :(

  • caroline

    the only thing I can say is that jacob has more fans now than edward after watching the movie ! I mean c’mon taylor looks and acts way better than robert… plus taylor’s body .. o m g !

    I DONT LIKE TWILIGHT BC I READ THE BOOKS AND DINT LIKE THM THEY ARE SO BAD WRITTEN AND SO IS THE WHOLE PLOT OF THE BOOK DOESNT MAKE SENCE. AND ITS MY OPINION SO DONT TELL ME TO STFU CAUSE IM NOT. ITS A SHAME GIRLS ACTUALLY THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS GOOD. AND DONT WORRY, THE NEXT HARRY POTTER MOVIE WILL MAKE MORE MONEY THAN THIS PIECE OF CRAP MADE. I SAW NEW MOON YESTERDAY, ALL I SAW WAS STUPID BELLA (KSTEW SMOKES POT/WEED) CRYING LIKE A LITTLE GIRL AND TAYLOR WITH HIS SHIRT OFF THE WHOLE TIME I REALLY DONT KNOW WHY. PEOPLE WERE LAUGHING AT THEM IN THE MOVIE THEATER

  • http://twitter.com/luckydii Diana

    I READ THE BOOKS AND I REALLY HATE BELLA AND HER WHINING AND HER CLUMSYNESS. “OH EDWARD CATCH ME”

  • JAKE

    TA HP PODE TER SIDO ESCRITO MELHOR MAS POR FAVOR TODOS OS LIVROS DA SAGA SÕ SENSACIONAIS,ENTÃO NÃO FALEM MAL DELES DE NOVO.O.K?

  • LEXI

    @Lucy: oh please she is a waste of time she cant even act

  • LEXI

    what the hell is so good about this movie they cant act or nothing they show no emotions dont get me wrong i love taylor lautner but this movie sucked so did twilight i have no idea what is so good about these movies. what happened to real movie when they used to have a plot,good acting, this movie to me is no love story it is about a pedophile and a girl who cant do nothing for herself.

  • lia

    @maichi: oh THANK YOU THANK YOU you have to be like the best person ever bless you a 29 out of 100 that is a shame harry potter got like an 80

  • Avalon

    the books were not exactly literary genius, but they had a catchy theme
    about young love and the perfect boyfriend that makes every girl wish
    they had an edward to themselves. which is a fair enough concept for
    book sales. which is where they should have left it. the movies and the actors they cast in the movies have
    been terrible. i have seen both films and kristen stewart is by far the worst bella i could think of. she dosent come off at all as the sweet girl that bella is written as being in the book. i have nothing against kristen stewart but her own personality isnt at all sweet so i dont think she really knows how to bring that out in bella on screen. which says a fair bit about her acting ability. now her as joan jett will be better suited. also i think jasper is the most attractive of the whole bunch. yet im kind of glad he is still quite indie. edward is so annoying after a while however jasper remains so elusive. jackson rathbone makes a very amazing japer.

    I love how this is a post for Twihards but most comments are bashing the franchise. Ha ha. I’ve just seen New Moon and it SUCKED. It sucked so much that about 20 minutes throughout the whole thing I had to run out of the theater to the restroom to throw up–really, I did. It was too cheesy, the lines were too corny, and the acting was awkward and cringe-worthy. And what the hell was up with that vision Alice had? Every person in the theater laughed at that. It looked like a pathetic Disney fairytale, but that’s an insult. To DISNEY.

    Twilight sucks balls–both the books and movies (yes, I’ve read the books). And comparing a shitty-ass franchise like this to a phenomenal franchise like Harry Potter is like comparing a dirty sock to a Victoria’s Secret apparel. Plus, Robert Pattinson could act WAY better than he does in Twilight. Enough said.
