New Moon Kills At The Box Office

Betsy Waldman / November 23, 2009

Apparently, New Moon is kind of a big deal. The Twilight flick pulled in a whopping $140.7 mill over the weekend. Yeah, seriously.

Guess everyone was dying to see Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart interact on the big screen. Too bad Taylor Lautner totally won us over with his kind heart and, um, not-so-clothed body.

Check out these stats, courtesy of Gossip Cop:

Best single opening day ever surpassing THE DARK KNIGHT ($67.2 million)

Biggest 2 day total to reach $100 + million ($115.9 million to surpass THE DARK KNIGHT’s $114.8 million)

Biggest November opening in history surpassing HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE ($102.7 million)

3rd biggest opening weekend ever surpassing PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN: DEAD MANS CHEST ($135.6 million)

Best gross for midnight shows ever at $26.3 million surpassing HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE ($22.2 million)

What did you think of New Moon?
