‘New Moon’ Makes ‘Guinness World Records’ 2011

From Twilight Examiner – Amanda Bell

The Twilight Saga: New Moon has become a part of Guinness World Records 2011 for its successes in the box office.

Reports MTV, “‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ earned a place in the book for having the Highest Opening-Day Gross, $72.7 million, beating previous record holder, ‘The Dark Knight.'”

The Twilight Saga: New Moon also has number one opening day and single day gross totals as well as the biggest midnight opening.

Each year, the Guinness World Records book chronicles the biggest, smallest, longest, and shortest records associated with nearly every conceivable aspect of the world, but being placed in the text is a very coveted feat, so it’s a pretty big deal that New Moon made this year’s cut.

The Guinness World Records book was released on Tuesday, September 14th.

Last year, both Twilight and its director, Catherine Hardwicke, were placed in the 2010 edition for “Highest-Grossing Movie by a Female Director.”
