Marking the third best weekend opening of all time (thank god it wasn’t the first), Summit Entertainment’s sequel The Twilight Saga: New Moon grossed an estimated $140.7 million from 4,024 theaters at the domestic B.O., according to insiders close to the numbers. Not only that, New Moon led what’s expected to be the second-best weekend ever at the domestic B.O. in terms of overall ticket sales, trailing only the weekend that Warner Bros.’ “The Dark Knight” opened, and that was in summer. New Moon‘s boffo opening trails only Warners’ The Dark Knight ($167.2 million) and Sony’s Spider-Man 3 ($151.1 million). New Moon bumped Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest ($135.6 million) from the No. 3 spot in terms of top opening for a three-day weekend.
