twilightsplatter.jpgThe Twilight Saga: Eclipse rakes in over $160 million during its first five days in theaters. Summit had predicted that the movie would gross $173 million ... but cheer up, peeps ... this is still not too shabby!

Eclipse cost $68 million to produce, so I'm sure Rob, Kristen and Taylor are already finding ways to spend their millions.

Coming in a distant second ...The Last Airbender, which despite bad reviews, brought in $40 million. Toy Story 3 rounded out the top three with $30 million ....bringing the total North American gross to $289 million.

Will Taylor's ripped abs keep Eclipse going strong through next weekend ... or will Predators or the animated Despicable Me take the top spot? We shall see.
