'Eclipse' has phenomenal overseas opening day   4 comments

‘Eclipse’ had a phenomenal overseas opening day, grossing an est. $16.2 million in 21 markets.


The Twilight Saga: Eclipse launched yesterday in 21 international markets, earning an estimated $16.2 million. While it came just short of topping The Twilight Saga: New Moon’s opening day record domestically (although Eclipse did open on a Wednesday and NM was a Friday- makes a big difference- Ed), Eclipse had no problem out-grossing its predecessor’s launch in nearly all overseas territories.

Russia led the way with an estimated $3.9 million, which more than doubled New Moon’s $1.9 million debut. In Italy, Eclipse tallied an estimated $3.1 million, up from New Moon’s $2.9 million opening last November. This represents the third-best opening day ever in Italy.

In the Philippines, Eclipse grossed $1.2 million, which was way ahead of New Moon’s $741,000. If the estimate holds, Eclipse will top Spider-Man 3 for best opening day ever there. Eclipse also registered the highest opening day ever in Belgium, where it grossed an estimated $1.1 million.

Eclipse also had impressive starts in Sweden ($1.04 million), Norway ($847,000), Denmark ($739,000), Turkey ($658,000), Poland ($558,000), Greece ($548,000), South Africa ($372,000), Finland ($333,000) and Hungary ($177,000).

Eclipse opened today in Spain, Australia and Mexico as well as many smaller territories, and it hits major markets France, Germany, South Korea and Japan in the coming weeks.

Xavier Samuel Talks About Playing the Guitar w/ Rob   3 comments

New Twilight hunk Xavier Samuel has told how he and Robert Pattinson have formed the world’s hottest guitar band.

The Australian, who plays bad boy Riley in Twilight: Eclipse, says he plays guitar with his co-stars Pattinson and Jackson Rathbone to help relax.

But sadly for Twilight’s legion of female fans, they have no plans to take to the road.

Speaking about jamming with Pattinson, Samuel said: “We do play together when we get the chance. Especially Jackson and Rob (Pattinson). They play the guitar but we’re not going to start a boy band or anything like that.”

Growing up in Adelaide, Samuel sang with local band Hyatus, then called Degrees of Freedom.

But he now wants to concentrate on acting, saying: “I don’t have any aspirations of becoming a musician or a rock star or anything like that but I take the guitar with me because it helps me wind down.”
