What a holiday weekend for Summit Entertainment.
Their mega-hit, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse continued to rake in the dough right up to the finish of the four day holiday. Estimates put the flick’s box office take from Friday to Monday at $82.5 million and its total take at $175.3 mil since its debut last Wednesday. That’s roughly two-and-a-half times its production costs of $68 million.
But it wasn’t all about Eclipse, though it may seem like it.
The Last Airbender grabbed an estimated $40.5 mil between Friday and Sunday and topped out at an estimated $53.2 million after Monday’s take from the 3,169 theaters where it was booked.
