New Moon FAILS to beat the Dark Knight and Spider-man records

Despite all the hype from its screaming flock of fans, Summit Entertainment's The Twilight Saga: New Moon ended up with $140.7 million domestically in the US for the three-day weekend.

That means it's the third-biggest opening domestically in the US, trailing the opening weekend record of The Dark Knight's $158 million and also is behind Spider-Man 3's $151.1 million.

Having said that, "New Moon" did open worldwide to $258.8 million, which, in terms of superhero movies, was only beat by Spider-Man 3's $381.7 million. The top worldwide opening of $394 million was set by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince last July. Spider-Man 3 ranks second on that list and "New Moon" came in at #7.
