Twilight beats The Dark Night?

With a $167.3 million overall domestic take as Sunday, per Box Office Mojo, Twilight made more than four times its reported $37 million production budget; the best rate of return on any film in the 2008 Top 10, including The Dark Knight.

The Batman epic was a pretty good investment, too, very nearly tripling its gargantuan $185 million budget with a $530.8 million domestic take, Hollywood’s second-biggest ever.

Still, The Dark Knight was nothing compared to these off-the-charts performers: High School Musical 3: Senior Year ($89.7 million), which grossed about eight times its $11 million budget; the Hannah Montana concert movie, which made about nine times its $7 million budget; and, Cameron’s Fireproof, which cost $500,000 to produce, and made $33.1 million,or more than 60 times its budget.

Other winners,and losers, of the box-office year that was, per stats from Box Office Mojo and The-Numbers.com.

P/S: -FIRST POST OF 2009!- Robert Pattinson also played as Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter 4th movie installment, ‘Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire’ .  Played as the charming boy of Hogwarts and the most handsome guy in the school that always get the girls melting whenever he passes by.  Seems to me he will get that same attention more these days, yea. Off the screen I mean… (^_^)

    It surprises me that there are so many theater goers what with DVD releases so soon after the movies’ release. I wait for the movies to be released on saltellite TV, record them and watch at will. Besides, I can get extra butter on my popcorn at home for free.

    I liked Twilight. Even though the Dark Knight was a wonderful adventure piece, Twilight had a better storyline
