Tickets for the final Twilight film Breaking Dawn Part 2 are selling quicker than its predecessor Breaking Dawn Part 1 it's been confirmed, with the first day of sales showing a clear victory for the new movie over its older counterpart. Let's break (see what we did there) it down into some figures: At this stage last year Breaking Dawn Part 1 had managed to rake in a cool $626,000 on its first-day ticket sales.

Get this, though; Breaking Dawn Part 2 has so far sold a whopping $1.17 million worth of tickets after just the same period of general release! That's an 87% increase on the already perceived stratospheric sales of its predecessor. E!Online reports that about a quarter of those sales have gone on the Twilight marathon, which will see some screens show all of the films back-to-back leading up to the new movie. That's a lot of hours of watching Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart et al. looking surly. Much of the build up to the last of the series has been by the aforementioned actors, with Pattinson and Stewart splitting up earlier in the summer thanks to the latter having an affair with director Rupert Sanders.

They've since patched things up though - just in time for the promotional rounds, strange that - and it's now all systems go with the release date set for November 16th.
