Twilight on Track to Break Records

Less than 24-hours after it opened, Twilight is on track to have the second highest-grossing opening weekend in 2011. Breaking Dawn – Part 1 is set to take in $65 to $75 million this weekend after being released at midnight last night. It’s inaugural midnight show alone brought in #30.3 million. Breaking Dawn  has a big enough following that it’s already taking business away from other films out this weekend.

Until Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released this summer, the last two Twilight movies set records for best midnight performance.  Deathly Hallows earned $43.6 million for its midnight showings, making Breaking Dawn number two in terms of all-time midnight best.

As if you need us to tell you, the film stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
