‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ – Summit Ent.
The latest box office figures for the film point to a worldwide total of $456 million so far, resulting from a $237 million domestic gross and a successful $81.1 million on the international front this weekend (adding up to $219 million so far, internationally).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Eclipse was the number one film of the weekend internationally, leading titles like Predators and Despicable Me.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has also been a part of a recent Variety discussion on early Academy Awards predictions. The publication suggested that Eclipse‘s music was one of a few “strong contributions” in the category of music, opening up the possibility that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse could be in the Oscar pool (as was The Twilight Saga: New Moon with Lykke Li’s “Possibility”). Though, Variety also suggests that “popular” songs are not the type of material considered by the Academy. We shall see . . . For now, do you think Eclipse‘s music – be it the soundtrack contributions or Howard Shore’s score for the film – should be considered by the Academy? Why or why not?
