“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” has risen to an $82.5 million haul over the long Fourth of July weekend and lifted its total to $175.3 million after just six days, according to studio estimates Monday.
Coming in second for the weekend with $53.2 million from Friday to Monday was Paramount’s action fantasy “The Last Airbender,” pushing its total to $70.5 million since opening Thursday. The movie did strong business despite terrible reviews.
Disney’s Pixar Animation blockbuster “Toy Story 3,” which had been No. 1 the two previous weekends, slipped to third-place with $42.2 million, raising its domestic total to $301.1 million.
