According to EW, the Twilight Eclipse movie broke the box office record for midnight releases last night, grossing more than $30 million.

Just for the midnight showing! In one night! In one vampire- and werewolf-obsessed country! Ours ...

Yep, it seems the masses of mom/daughter duos and "girls' night out" Twilight fanatics were out blood lusting into the wee hours last night -- chasing hot vampires and gorgeous werewolves into the theaters across the nation.

This new box office record breaks the previous record, also held up by Twilight fans. The Twilight Saga: New Moon earned $26.3 million at its midnight showing last November.

I can't tell you how many of my mom friends -- with and without tween and teen daughters -- were on Facebook last night, as they stood in line waiting with thirst for the midnight show to begin so they could finally get the latest on-screen look at Edward (Rob Pattinson) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner).

Oh and Bella (Kristen Stewart), whatever ... who cares ...

I'll be launching off into the dark in my Team Edward cut-off jean shorts tomorrow night. Wish me luck.

Were you out there at the midnight showing last night? Are you going to see Eclipse this week?
