According to Gossip Cop:
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 has passed the $500 million mark.
The film grossed $508 million in global box office in only 12 days since the film’s release on November 18, 2011.
Summit Entertainment’s Co-Chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger stated: We couldn’t be more pleased with the success of this film and a franchise that the fans have continued to support over the past several years. Thank you to all involved with the films from the actors, filmmakers and Stephenie Meyer to the most important group of all, the global fan base that continues to drive a desire for more Edward, Jacob and Bella.”
What’s interesting is if you compare the day-by-day totals of Breaking Dawn to those of New Moon and Eclipse, Breaking Dawn is slightly behind New Moon but ahead of Eclipse/ New Moon was a heavy front seller while Eclipse was more even throughout. Keep in mind with Eclipse there were also IMAX sales that commanded a higher price.
So all that being said, it’s anyone’s guess where Breaking Dawn will land in franchise history when it ends its box office run
