tr July 1, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ is a film which was keenly awaited by the audience. It has now been discharged in America. Purportedly, the film has smashed the hitherto American record for the midnight screenings that have attained a massive amount of money. This record was earlier possessed by the aforementioned film’s forerunner, New Moon.

The distributor of Eclipse happens to be Summit Entertainment. Summit Entertainment has declared that Eclipse has procured in excess of a colossal $30 million from its midnight transmissions on June 30th. This figure has bettered the $26.2 million midnight haul of New Moon in the previous year.

The greater part of Eclipse’s midnight box office collection stemmed from traditional showings. However, in excess of $1 million originated from IMAX screenings. The paranormal drama, Eclipse, was portrayed on 192 colossal screens.

The midnight collection of Eclipse from IMAX is also the procreator of a fresh record. The earlier record was occupied by Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen. It had procured $959,000 in the previous year.

Eclipse will now have to battle against the 3D action-related adventure of Paramount, which is titled ‘The Last Airbender’. It has been projected that Eclipse is going to rule the impending box office and has the capacity to even outshine New Moon’s remarkable proceeds.

‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ happens to be anchored in the third book in Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling sequence of novels. Eclipse narrates the eternally knotted relationship between a human being named Bella and her wooers, the vampirical Edward Cullen and werewolf Jacob. Bella’s character has been enacted by Kristen Stewart. Edward Cullen’s persona has been enacted by Robert Pattinson. The heartthrob Taylor Lautner has enacted the character of Jacob. Eclipse is going to be discharged in Britain on July 9.
