‘Breaking Dawn’ takes $141m domestically over weekend

One of the strongest Novembers in recent memory hit another peak with the release of the finale of the Stephenie Meyer adaptation The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 (Summit Entertainment), once again directed by Bill Condon and starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Michael Sheen and more. It opened on Thursday night with special early preview screenings, grossing $30.2 million between them and midnights. Those were added to the Friday business to make $71.2 million in its first day, which it built upon over Saturday and Sunday for an estimated $141.3 million over the three-day weekend. This makes it the second-highest opener for the franchise as well as the 8th biggest opening ever.
