Summit Entertainment’s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse earned an estimated $68 million its first day which is a new record for a Wednesday opening, surpassing previous record holder Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ($62 million). The third installment debuted in a record 4,416 theaters.

While the opening day is not as big as The Twilight Saga: New Moon’s record of $72.7 million, if the estimate holds it would still be the second-best single day and opening day ever and would knock The Dark Knight ($67.2 million) to third.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse cost about $68 million to make, but that’s not counting the promo campaign for the film.
