The Sandra Bullock starring feel-good film The Blind Side finally managed to overtake New Moon at the box office in its third week in theaters. The Twilight Saga:New Moon dropped to second place from last weekend, with $15.7 million in ticket sales.
The Blind Side surged to the number one spot in the box office, raking in $20.4 million in sales. The film opened at the number 2 spot against New Moon, but has now overtaken the blockbuster vampire sequel. Not a big deal for Summit Entertainment, however, considering New Moon has already stacked up a total gross of over $245 million.
Brothers, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire, crept into third place at the box office, bringing in only $9.7 million. Heist thriller Armored stumbled into fourth place, while the John Travolta and Robin Williams comedy Old Dog rounded out the top five.
If Summit Entertainment keeps releasing all these preview clips from New Moon, we’ll be able to piece the whole new Twilight film together ourselves before it ever hits theaters! Not that we’re really complaining about that.
With fans salivating for every New Moon photo or video they can find, Summit keeps ramping up the hype for the new Twilight film by teasing fans with tiny new clips from the upcoming movie. This week, the studio released two new New Moon video clips for fans to drool over.
The first new clip, available for download from iTunes, features new footage of Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) facing off with Bella (Kristen Stewart) trying to keep them from tearing each other’s throats out. And as a side note, Taylor Lautner is certainly looking yummy!
The second new New Moon video clip gives us some of the best video footage of the Volturi yet. In the clip, Edward gets slammed by Volturi bad boy Felix (Daniel Cudmore) after the Volturi council decides Bella “knows too much.” It’s the most action-packed clip yet and we’re itching for more.
New Moon hits theaters on November 20th in the U.S. (Which is not soon enough!)
Despite a titillating announcement by new Twilight cast member Boo Boo Stewart that a fifth Twilight film is in the works, fans shouldn’t hold their breath.
Boo Boo Stewart (no relation to Kristin Stewart) told Access Hollywood he had been signed on to do three Twilight films as teenage werewolf Seth Clearwater. If you count Eclipse and Breaking Dawn as two… well, that would imply either the final Twilight book would be split in two, or a totally new film is planned.
Unfortunately, according to RadarOnline.com, Boo Boo Stewart may just be confused. Unidentified sources reportedlyÂ told the site “it is absolutely not true” a fifth Twilight film is forthcoming at this time.
Twilight author Stephanie Meyer has reportedly expressed interest in having the final book, Breaking Dawn, split into two films – along the lines of what’s being done with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. So you never know, Boo Boo might just have a bit of clairvoyance in addition to his newly found werewolf skills.
