"The Omen" opened with $12.6 million, the most ever earned by a film on a Tuesday, usually the slowest night of the week at the box office.

The horror remake "The Omen" makes a surprise take in. The much-talked flick debuted Tuesday June 6th, 2006 with a strong $12.6 million, such amount prompted WLNS.com, the Website for the Lansing, Michigan, TV station, to proclaim: "The Omen Becomes Largest Opening Movie in History."

Though not becoming the biggest opening in Liev Schreiber's history, still the $12.6 million did distinguish the movie from the highest-grossing Tuesday ever, topping the likes of "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King" ($12.5 million in 2003) and "Independence Day" ($11.1 million in 1996).

That's not all, such amount also has become the most ever earned by a film on a Tuesday, usually the slowest night of the week at the box office.
