Vampire movie TWILIGHT has already begun breaking box office records - it has scored the most successful opening weekend ever for a female director.
The dark fantasy romance, starring Robert Pattinson, claimed the top spot at the U.S. box office after grossing $70.6 million (GBP47.1 million) in its debut weekend (beg22Nov08).
