Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 Scores Sixth Biggest Box Office Takings Of All Time In US
The last instalment of the Twilight Saga hit cinemas this Friday and in the USA it cruised into box office success, becoming the sixth highest grossing film on its opening day ever.
The film took in a massive $71.2 million on Friday (16) night, however this still wasn't enough to send it above its predecessors Breaking Dawn – Part 1 ($71.6 million) and New Moon ($72.7 million). Box office experts are predicting the film to hit the $135 million mark by the end of the weekend, with some estimates even putting the film as high as $150 million. The film will have to hit the latter prediction if it is to beat the takings of New Moon and Breaking Dawn – Part 1, which took in $142.8 million and $138.1 million respectively. Meanwhile, in overseas markets, the film has raked in $91 million already.
Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is the final instalment of the Edward Cullen and Bella Swan love tale, which stars real-life couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart as the sparkling vampire and his human girlfriend. The ending of the series has no doubt prompted boyfriends across the globe to let out a sign of relief.
The film series is in cinemas across the globe now and also stars Taylor Lautner and Martin Sheen.
