Down only 0.7% when compared to the previous day, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, directed by David Slade, and starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, collected $190k on Thursday, Aug. 19, at the North American box office, as per Box Office Mojo.
Totaling $296.64m, Eclipse has finally (Day 51) passed its predecessor, Chris Weitz‘s The Twilight Saga: New Moon, at the domestic box office. New Moon, which opened in fall 2009, cumed at $296.62m after 133 days.
Now, bear in mind that to date Eclipse remains behind New Moon in number of tickets sold.
Not adjusted for inflation or 3D/IMAX surcharges, Eclipse is at no. 35 on Box Office Mojo’s chart of the top box-office hits in US/Canada history. New Moon is no. 36.
Adjusted for inflation, neither movie is to be found among the top 100. (It begins with Gone with the Wind‘s $1.6 billion and ends with Toy Story 2‘s $380.3m.)
Also, adjusted for higher ticket prices — using Box Office Mojo’s yearly average — New Moon would have grossed $299.58m in 2010 — nearly $3m more than Eclipse‘s total to date. (And yes, I know those “averages” are iffy, but they do give you an idea about the inflation effect.)
Additionally, Eclipse was screened at 193 IMAX theaters in North America, which are about 30% more expensive than regular movie houses. Within its first week out, Eclipse pulled in $9m at those IMAX venues (the equivalent of approx. $6.9m at a regular movie house). New Moon didn’t have that revenue-inflating luxury.
For Eclipse to pass New Moon in number of tickets sold, it’ll have to gross — and this is a guesstimate based on the information above — at least another $5.5m-6m domestically, or a cume of $302m-$303m. It’ll probably get there and a little beyond before running its full course.
On Day 51, New Moon‘s total was $290m. It added another $6m in the next 82 days. Eclipse has lost steam this past week, but prior to that it was way ahead of New Moon in terms of box-office stamina.

As for Jacob, he often irritated me in the novel, but I found him to be much more likable here. Granted, this may be partially because, having read the final book, I now have insight into Jacob’s behavior, understanding that he’s at the mercy of the biological impulses of his species as much as Edward is, if not more so.
Still, I think Taylor Lautner is as much responsible for the greater appeal of the film version of Jacob. Perhaps Lautner’s excellent performance as Jacob is at least marginally responsible for Stewart’s being more at ease, as she was at her best primarily during many of their scenes together.

“The funny thing is, our directors are so different from one another,” Lautner told MTV News. “I didn’t have the opportunity to work with Catherine that much, but she was amazing. She’s very smart and so creative.”
Back in November, Lautner called Weitz’s directorial style “flawless,” and months later, his opinion of the man has not changed. “Chris was phenomenal — his sensibility. He’s so sensitive,” the 18-year-old said. “It really matched ‘New Moon’ ‘s feel.”
And while Lautner has fond feelings for that film, “Eclipse” is his favorite, if only because it has the most action. “David brought his darker, cooler, more dangerous feel to ‘Eclipse,’ which was awesome,” Lautner said.
Finally, there are the two parts of “Breaking Dawn,” which will begin filming in the fall. Lautner hasn’t yet had a chance to sit down with Condon to talk about the series, but he can’t wait for the opportunity.
“I met him briefly,” Lautner said. “Very quickly. Not about ‘Breaking Dawn.’ He seems like a very nice guy. Obviously ridiculously talented, so I’m excited I get to work with him twice.”
Eclipse won Most Anticipated Movie and New Moon won Best Fantasy Film! Papa Cullen was there to pick up the trophies!

US Weekly’s “Sexy Stars of Twilight: New Moon” special issue was a huge hit with fans when it hit newsstands in October of last year. Dubbed by some as a “bookazine”, the custom edition was printed on heavier (read: collectible-grade) paper with a focus on telling the stories of the films while showcasing a superior collection of pictures of the stars of Twilight. In recent days, talk of the special issue has been revived—this comes in the wake of US Weekly’s announcement that it will publish yet another Twilight-focused special issue: “The Sexy Stars of Twilight: Eclipse”.
According to BarnesandNoble.com (which has the issue available for pre-order), US Weekly editors announced that the issue will contain the following: 7 posters, 160 photos, and exclusive interviews with principal cast members Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, as well as secondary cast such as Boo Boo Stewart and Nikki Reed.

As you may know, the MTV Movie Award nominations were announced last week. This year, we see something different than we saw last year. The “Twilight Saga: New Moon” actors had such a busy year filming other movies, they are now competing against each other and themselves at the awards. At the Oscars, competing against yourself is usually considered the kiss of death because it’s assumed your votes will be split. However, with the “New Moon” cast, questions remain as to whether their other films can pull the same audience and votes as the second “Twilight” film.
In the “Best Kiss” category, Kristen Stewart is nominated twice – once for “New Moon” and once for “The Runaways”. “New Moon” had a significantly larger audience, but Kristen had enough votes to get both movies nominated. Now the question becomes: which movie will fans vote for? The easy answer is “New Moon”. More people saw it, more people have heard of it, and more people want to see Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart accept another “Best Kiss” award and almost kiss. But, what about the people who voted for her in “The Runaways”? Will they continue to vote, knowing that the movie had far less visibility and distribution? Voting for “The Runaways” may actually cannibalize Kristen’s chance at winning, but we won’t know until the awards air on June 6th. (Taylor Lautner is purposely not mentioned here because he is not competing against himself.)
In the “Best Male Performance” category, Robert Pattinson is nominated for “Edward Cullen” and Taylor Lautner is nominated for “Jacob Black”. The Team Edward and Team Jacob fans are going to come out of the wood work, though they were never really in hiding. This category IS going to be won by one of them and people will be feverishly voting up until the last moment to get their vampire or werewolf at the podium. This category will be the most controversial, and die hard fans really sway one way or another. I don’t expect “boos” if someone’s favorite doesn’t win, but either way, some people will be thrilled and some will be disappointed.
Where we have the biggest conundrum is in “Global Superstar”. Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson are all nominated. The Twifecta, as they are known, dominate in this category. The only other nominee who has a fighting chance is Johnny Depp, as he’s loved by many and has been around the longest. Assuming for a moment that Depp doesn’t win, who will the votes go to? Again, for Robert Pattinson and Jacob Black, it depends on who’s team you’re on. If you decide to forgo teams all together and vote for Kristen Stewart (aka “Team Bella”), do you run the risk of cannibalizing “New Moon” votes? This category will not necessarily be the most controversial, but may the toughest choice for the fans. All three actors have made other films in the past year, and all three are tapped for more films this year. Eyeballs everywhere will be glued to the TV for this one.

I added a new picture from Taylor Lautner’s show appearance on Oprah, and also some new/old stills from New Moon.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon is leading the nominations at Britain’s upcoming National Movie Awards – scooping nods for all three of the film’s stars.
Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner have all received recognition for their roles in the vampire sequel, going up against Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint in the Performance of the Year category.
The Twilight follow-up is pitted against Avatar, Alice In Wonderland and Clash of the Titans in the best fantasy film category, while the next installment, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, is in contention for the title of Most Anticipated Movie of the Summer.
Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince is nominated in the family film category along with Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang, and Up, while Coco Before Chanel, Paranormal Activity and Harry Brown are among films nominated for breakthrough movie prize.
