Take That, Batman!

Early numbers are coming in from the New Moon opening night.

From Larry at ProNetworks

"Unofficial reports say The Twilight Saga: New Moon has shattered The Dark Knight’s $18.4M midnight debut for a 3-day weekend. Sources put the total at $23-24M. This would also surpass Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, whose 5-day weekend began with $22.2M on a Tuesday night. Summit has not yet released official numbers.”

Woot! Go Twi-hards! It will only get bigger as more fans get to the theater for the first time (like me!) and those from last night return for round two (like Amber!).

I can't wait to see the final numbers next week!

UPDATE 2:00 PM (from Amber)

It's Now Official!!!!!

Summit has announced that The Twilight Saga: New Moon has officially set a new all-time midnight box office record, taking in $26.27M from 3514 theaters.

Yay!! Let's keep it racking up for the weekend!
