Eclipse: 2 Records

Playing on approximately 8,000 screens at an opening-record 4,416 locations, Eclipse still had a phenomenal debut, setting two other records. The vampire romance sequel boasted the
largest Wednesday gross of all time, surpassing Transformers:
Revenge of the Fallen's $62 million. It also logged the
top-grossing summer day ever, surpassing The Dark
Knight's $67.2 million.

Overall, Eclipse posted the second highest-grossing single day of all time, behind only its predecessor.
The last time June 30 landed on Wednesday and Independence Day landed on Sunday was in 2004. That's when Spider-Man 2 established the record for that holiday. It made $40.4
million on its Wednesday opening, or the equivalent of around $52
million adjusted for ticket price inflation. By its sixth day, it had
pulled in $180.1 million, or more than $230 million adjusted.

Even after opening on more screens than New Moon, New Moon's 1st day was higher.

Eclipse's full day came in at an estimated $68.5 million, falling short of New Moon's $72.7 million record ($26.3 million of which from its midnight launch)
