The latest installment opened here at midnight on Friday, and played on Saturday and Sunday for distributor E1 Entertainment. The third Twilight movie grossed £6,287,559 over the weekend. The gothic love story opens properly on July 9 as the picture rolls out in major territories in a World Cup-caused delay. Exhibitors here are feeling very upbeat about its prospects. Vue, the multiplex chain, has sold over £1 million worth of advance tickets alone.
