The time is here

and it's already setting records... According to CNN.com Eclipse' makes $30 million in 3 hours: Not only did "Eclipse" have the largest domestic release ever when it opened in 4,408 theaters on June 30, but it's also banked more than $30 million at the box office between midnight and 3 a.m. alone. (Oh and by the way, if this movie somehow hasn't made it to a theater near you, 29 additional theaters will play the movie come Friday, according to EW.)
This makes "Eclipse" the new midnight opening record holder, knocking the film's predecessor, "New Moon," out of the top spot. The second installment in the series earned $26.3 million at midnight showings when it opened in November, 2009.
As Gossip Cop points out, "New Moon" went on to earn $72.7 million on its opening day, so we can only guess what the first day totals for "Eclipse" are going to look like.
Tonight the hubs and I head to our local theatre to watch the much anticipated return of the Twilight Saga Eclipse.
We both loved the books and love the movies.  I am wishing about now that I was Stephanie Meyers, who is making some serious dollars... I guess I'll just have to come up with a book that engages kids and adults alike and that catches the interest of Hollywood so the series can be make into feature films...
Seriously, I am excited to see this movie as well as spend the evening with the hubs {my Edward}.  After the movie we'll head to dinner at Sienna, a new restaurant in town.  I hope it takes as good as it looks.
 

Cheers!
