"The surveys reveal the "Twilight" fanbase is as strong as ever with a higher percentage of young women interested in "Eclipse" than young men polled before the opening of "Iron Man 2" last month. The third cinematic installment in the Stephenie Meyer franchise also has significant interest from both younger and older men which proves the action spots has peaked the interest of the male demo. "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" scored the biggest opening day in history with $72.7 million in November, but the summer is a different animal as is the vacation-friendly July 4 holiday weekend. Taking into account "Eclipse" will debut on a Wednesday, its more likely the picture match "New Moon's" $153 million haul after five days. However, if the David Slade thriller is truly the best of the three "Twilight" films so far (as rumored), word of mouth could fuel a much bigger opening". Source: www.hitfix.com
