New Moon devours box office


The Twilight Saga’s New Moon opened to a spectacular $US140.7m over the weekend, claiming the third biggest opening weekend in U.S. history.

Although it did not top the three-day opening weekend grosses of 2008’s The Dark Knight and 2007’s Spiderman 3, New Moon holds the biggest opening weekend of 2009.

New Moon destroyed the opening day record with $US72.7 million, beating the entire opening weekend of Twilight by about $US3 million.

Worldwide, the film collected $US258 million.

Discuss: We normally don’t report box office takings, but this feels like a deserving exception. How much do you think New Moon will gross?
