The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 earned a whopping $72 million on Friday, and it's on track to have the second-best domestic opening of 2011. But can it beat New Moon's $142.8 million debut in 2009, giving it the highest opening of any Twilight flick to date?
Breaking Dawn earned $30.3 million in midnight screenings alone (it now holds the number two spot for highest midnight numbers ever), and studio insiders and industry experts are predicting that the film will rake in $140 million this weekend.
The film scored the third biggest opening day ever (after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and New Moon), so it's definitely possible! Have you seen Breaking Dawn yet? Let us know what you thought!
