The Twilight Saga is usually subject to box office analysis in the U.S and The U.K, but it's over in Spain that the final instalment of the franchise, Breaking Dawn - Part 2, has been breaking records, gleaning [euro]9.2 million (USD $11,784,400) in total box office gross, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Spain is arguably per capita the most successful territory for the Twilight saga, which is a tribute to the quality of the films, the faithfulness of the fans but also the work and expertise of our Spanish team," said Xavier Marchand, President of Worldwide Distribution, Alliance Films. "The movie-going market in Spain is hot right now thanks to a strong performance by [Spanish animated feature] Tad, The Lost Explorer followed by The Impossible," Rentrak's Spain General Manager David Rodriguez said. The Twilight franchise has grossed a total of [euro]71,794,410 (USD $91,896,554), in Spain, with New Moon slightly eclipsing the others with [euro]19,982,390. "This record shows the strength of the Twilight saga in Spain and the skills of our theatrical team, in a very difficult marketplace," Jorge Vazquez, Aurum's general manager said in a statement.
Twilight isn't the only movie making waves in continental Europe; this announcement comes on the heels of a previous record-breaking weekend by Juan Antonio Bayona's The Impossible, which earned 8.97 million euros ($11.5 million) in mid-October.
