Hitfix is counting down the hottest summer movies of 2010.
3. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Opening Day: June 30
Pros: Arguably the most passionate franchise fanbase of this era and the most action packed of all the films which means guys might not have to be dragged by their significant others after being bored through “New Moon.” “Eclipse” is also the first installment in IMAX (higher ticket prices factor in) and to be released in the teen-friendly summer season.
Cons: The “backlash” is over, but are the fans still as excited as they were for the first two films?
Projected Box Office: $330 million
Lowdown: $300 million is guaranteed, but it “should” do much more than that.
