Breaking Dawn Still Clobbering at the Box Office Set Overseas record

According to Box Office Mojo

With two new nationwide releases—Killing Them Softly and The Collection—failing to make any noise at the box office, the post-Thanksgiving weekend lived up its reputation as a dumping ground. As a result, for the third-straight weekend the top three movies were The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Skyfall and Lincoln. On the strength of those holdovers, the Top 12 earned an estimated $107.5 million, which is up a whopping 46 percent from the same frame last year.

Breaking Dawn Part 2 three-peated with an estimated $17.4 million (off 60 percent). The fifth and final Twilight movie continues to hang on slightly better than its predecessors, and with a $254.6 million total it’s now within $1 million of catching up to New Moon.

Also we seem to have set an overseas record

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 once again led the foreign box office this weekend, and has already become the highest-grossing Twilight movie ever overseas. Meanwhile, Rise of the Guardians expanded in to most overseas markets and performed decently, while Skyfall continued its steady march towards $1 billion worldwide.

Breaking Dawn Part 2 added an estimated $48.8 million this weekend for a new foreign total of $447.8 million. That tops Breaking Dawn Part 1’s franchise record of $430.9 million; with a few major markets like Japan and China still on the horizon, the fifth and final Twilight movie is guaranteed to close with over $500 million overseas. One interesting note: the movie’s top market is the U.K. with $49.9 million, while its second-best territory is actually Brazil with $41.6 million. Worldwide, the movie has earned $702.4 million.

  2. No surprise! Best film ever!

  3. Not surprised at all. It was the best Twilight film and I even think it should be earning more! I’m glad people are realizing the last Twilight is worth spending $10 for! (:
