LOS ANGELES (AP) - "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" has risen to
an $82.5 million haul over the long Fourth of July weekend and has
lifted its total to $175.3 million after just six days.
The vampire romance from Summit Entertainment finished at No. 1
over the four-day weekend, despite a steep drop in its daily take
after a $68.5 million start last Wednesday, the second biggest
opening day ever.
Coming in second for the weekend with $53.2 million was
Paramount's action fantasy "The Last Airbender," lifting its
total to $70.5 million since opening Thursday.
"Toy Story 3" was third with $42.2 million, raising its
domestic total to $301.1 million. It passed last year's "Up" at
$293 million to become the No. 2 hit for Pixar Animation, behind
only "Finding Nemo" at $339.7 million.
