The Twilight Saga: Eclipse soared to No. 1 over the Fourth of July weekend, but couldn't eclipse the haul of its predecessor.
The third installment in the vampire film franchise raked in $82.5 million during the four-day weekend to bring its six-day total to $175.3 million, according to Box Office Mojo. If estimates hold, the tally falls $4 million shy of New Moon's $179 million six-day gross in November.
Eclipse broke the midnight box-office record - previously held by New Moon - when it earned $30 million Wednesday morning, but it quickly fell off pace over the weekend.
Opening in second place was The Last Airbender with $53.1 million over the long weekend. The M. Night Shyamalan film has reeled in a total of $70.5 million since its Thursday release.
