It's Official.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon just had the third biggest opening weekend on record in the States, after The Dark Knight and Spiderman 3 - provided estimates hold up, but I strongly doubt they'll be out by US$5mil. It held better over Sat and Sun than its predecessor, but still took more than half of its gross on opening Friday.

It definitely won't hold on to the US$500mil+ take of TDK, but if it holds as well as the first one (and I'm not totally sure that it will - I think expectation will result in it being significantly more frontloaded) it would have have a shot of eclipsing Spidey 3's US$336mil final.

Regardless, global estimates are up over US$250mil for the weekend, which is pretty exceptional.
