Holy crap. This Twilight craze is neverending!

Twilight‘s opening weekend was among one of the biggest in Hollywood history, raking in $70.6 million.

“This is a game-changer. This is an industry-changing performance,” Exhibitor Relations analyst Jeff Bock said today. “…With the success of Sex and the City, and Mamma Mia!, we’ve awoken a sleeping giant at the box office.”

75 percent of the movie’s audience was female and box office stats show the movie is the biggest opener for a movie directed by a woman (Catherine Hardwicke).

And yes, a sequel is in the works! Obviously.
