New Moon Beats Harry Potter and Batman reports that The Twilight Saga: New Moon set a new midnight opening record with $26.27 million from 3,514 theaters last night. That surpasses the opening nights of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ($22.2 million) and The Dark Knight ($18.4 million).

Will “New Moon” be able to pass up “Dark Knight’s” $67.1 million single day record?
