New Moon hit screens nationwide with many cinemas having showings at midnight for self-declared ‘Twi-Hards’.
The film has made over a million pounds in pre-release sales, and it is set to be the biggest film at the box office this weekend.
The first film in the series was the number one film in this week last year and has spawned a worldwide phenomenon of fans obsessed with all things Twilight.
The film is the second in the saga and closely follows the worldwide bestselling novels by Stephanie Meyer, in which vampire Edward Cullen is in love with human Bella Swan.
Most cinemas are showing the film all day today and are fully booked for weekend showings.
