A lot of your fellow Utahns didn't get much sleep last night, as they filled theaters to see the latest "Twilight" movie.

Once again, the Megaplex Theatres reports that three of the Utah-based chain's locations topped national lists for box-office take for Thursday midnight screenings.

The Megaplex 20 at The District in South Jordan placed first nationally, the Megaplex 17 at Jordan Commons in Sandy was second, and the Megaplex 12 at The Gateway (in downtown Salt Lake City) took third.

These rankings mirror similar stats for all the past "Twilight" films, Megaplex officials say.
