The Vow already won the box office race this weekend, earning $41.2 million in its first three days, but on Valentine’s Day, the film proved utterly indomitable, grossing a tremendous $11.6 million, a 248 percent increase from the day before.

The romantic drama’s gigantic Tuesday broke the record for a mid-week Valentine’s Day gross, displacing former record-holder, Hitch, which took in $7.5 million on Valentine’s Day in 2005.

All told, Screen Gems’ $30 million Rachel McAdams/Channing Tatum love story has earned $56.1 million in five days and has a solid shot at finishing above $100 million.
