Now about that world record! Read part of this article off msnbc...
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The vampire romance "Twilight" drained the box office in its opening weekend, taking in $70.6 million.
Catherine Hardwicke's film also enjoyed the biggest opening ever for a female director, blowing away the previous standard of $41.1 million set by Mimi Leder's "Deep Impact" in 1998.
AMAZING!!!!! And even better news...And the fangirls will get another taste soon enough: Summit Entertainment, which released "Twilight," announced during the weekend that it's going ahead with production of "New Moon," based on the second book in Meyer's internationally best-selling series. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will return as its star-crossed lovers, but whether Hardwicke will be at the helm again is still being determined.
OHMIGOD! I am so excited to see New Moon. I really hope they don't screw it up. Mostly because in Twilight, the action (even the the fight scene was the most sick awesome thing I'd ever seen) out did the romance, and I was slightly dissapointed by that, and I would really like to see Bella and Edward's relationship progress in the next 2 (crossing fingers for 3) movies.
