Breaking Dawn — Part 2 commands weekend box office
Not even Bond could stop the Twilight pandemonium.
Find out what topped the charts this weekend!
Breaking Dawn — Part 2
Twi-Hards the world over have waited years, braved the fiercesome lines and finally enjoyed the epic conclusion of the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn — Part 2. Can't say we're too surprised this topped the weekend box office with an impressive $141.3 million debut.
Daniel Craig and the latest installment of 007, Skyfall, haven't holstered their drive just yet, competing for the number two spot with $41.5 million.
Daniel Day-Lewis tips his top hat to a third-place finish with $21 million this weekend in the biopic Lincoln. Not a bad start by any means, but it's not going to get any easier for Abe with Bond and Bella holding down the two top spots.
Disney's Wreck-It Ralph pulled in $18.3 million and features the animated world of John C. Reilly gone video game. Reilly plays Ralph, the bad guy of the arcade world who's set out on a journey to go good. This one's safe and great for the whole family!
We knew Denzel Washington would be able to pilot this film through the box office earnings for quite some time after his heroic crash landing. Anything's got to be easier than landing a malfunctioning aircraft, right? Flight soared through this weekend with $8.6 million. Not a huge number, relatively, but then again, Sunday marked its 17th day in theaters.
Ben Affleck and Argo dropped down two spots from last weekend to our number six seat. The film managed $4 million this weekend.
Liam Neeson followed the Argo trend and took Taken 2 down two spots, too. Whew, say that three times fast!
The pitch must be a little shaky since the girls only landed themselves at number eight with only $1.2 million. Perhaps if they were singing and had fangs...
Here Comes the Boom
Kevin James went head-to-head with the world of mixed martial arts, and apparently Pitch Perfect, to come out with an equal $1.2 million weekend as well, with Here Comes the Boom.
It appears Edward and Bella are just a bit more popular than the OG vampire, Dracula, as Transylvania barely scraped by this weekend with $900,000.
