New Moon beats Harry Potter & Dark Knight in Midnight ticket sales!

Wow, this is awesome, New Moon is kicking some ass!! Everyone who has seen it says its AMAZING, including Jimmy Fallon who had Kristen on the show on Wednesday night. I cannot wait to see it. Anyways, here is the article about New Moon breaking midnight ticket sales.

Just a few moments ago, it was speculation on the table about what numbers would be announced for The Twilight Saga: New Moon's midnight ticket sales.

Now, it seems, it's official - The Twilight Saga: New Moon has surpassed The Dark Knight and Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince to take the win for highest midnight release ticket sales ever.

Previous estimates put New Moon as bringing in around $22.2 to $26 million. Even that set of touted figures was surpassed, it seems.

This release comes from Gossip Cop, who says that the information came directly from film studio Summit Entertainment.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON has set a new record for opening midnight shows with an estimated gross of $26.270 million playing at 3,514 theaters for a per theater average of $7,476. THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON passes HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE ($22.2 million) to take the number one spot.* Following POTTER is DARK KNIGHT ($18.5 million).

In addition to THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON, last night Summit re-issued TWILIGHT in theaters. The film grossed $1.3 million playing at 2,057 theaters for a per theater average of $631. The re-issue of Twilight came in just outside the top 15 for the week this is notable especially considering that all came from just 9 PM Thursday night shows.
