::Team Eclipse:: Myspace names Eclipse the #1 Summer Blockbuster.

We can all pretty much agree that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will be one of this summer's biggest films, but do you think it will be number one?

Well, MySpace's recent Trailer Park Chart seems to indicate so. In their "Top 5 Hot Movies of Summer 2010" feature, MySpace predicted the top five biggest films of the summer and placed The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in the number one spot.

MySpace cited user comments, saying "This movie is our number one because, judging by your comments, YOU are going to make it the biggest hit of the summer."

The site then went on to say, "This is the 3rd movie in the franchise. The first one grossed $408.7 million, the second one grossed $709.7 million, so it’s only going up. Question is: will it pass the $1 billion worldwide?"

An intriguing question, indeed.

A few months ago, we talked about a suggestion by one publication that Eclipse would not fare as well as predecessor The Twilight Saga: New Moon, but the consensus was then, and is likely still now, that Eclipse would surpass Twilight and New Moon.
