‘Breaking Dawn Part 1′ Tops Box Office for a Third Week with $16.9 Million!
For the first time, a Twilight movie has ruled the box office for three weeks in a row. During what was one of the slowest weekends of the year, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 held on to first, dropping 60 percent for $16.9 million, according to studio estimates.
That’s a smaller decline than what The Twilight Saga: New Moon experienced during the same weekend two years ago — it fell 64 percent. Nevertheless, Breaking Dawn — Part 1 is still trailing the past two Twilightmovies. The fourth entry in the romantic supernatural series has so far grossed a stellar $247.3 million in 17 days. By comparison, New Moon had earned $255.4 million by this point, while The Twilight Saga: Eclipse had collected $255.8 million. This will ultimately be a moot point when Breaking Dawn — Part 2 comes out next November and likely destroys all of the franchise’s records.
1. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 — $16.9 mil
2. The Muppets — $11.2 mil
3. Hugo — $7.6 mil
4. Arthur Christmas — $7.4 mil
5. Happy Feet Two — $6.0 mil
Woo hoo! Okay people, how many times have you seen Breaking Dawn Part 1? How many MORE times will you see it?
Let’s make BREAKING DAWN PART 1 top the box office for four weeks in a row! Come on Twi-Hards!
