Talk about Going out on top — Breaking Dawn Part 2 earned the top spot at the box office over the weekend pulling in an estimated $141.3 million. Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, and their costars have been all over the globe in recent weeks promoting the franchise's final installment and saying farewell their die hard fans. From Kristen's dramatic entrance at LA's world premiere, to Rob's hometown welcome at the London screening, and many stops in between — click through to see all the photos from the final Twilight press tour!
The Twilight trio, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, teamed up for a white-carpet arrival at the Berlin screening of Breaking Dawn Part 2 earlier today. Kristen sashayed into the theater wearing a gold gown by Elie Saab paired with strappy Christian Louboutin stilettos. It's the second metallic look we've seen her in this week, after wowing in a custom Zuhair Murad gown at Monday's LA premiere.
Rob, Kristen, and Taylor are saying farewell to fans around the globe, but back at home they're prepping to take the top spot at the box office this weekend. Early estimates suggest the fifth installment in the Twilight franchise will take in upward of $130 million during opening weekend, and they're off to a strong start with last night's midnight showings earning $30.4 million. Kristen's had great success at the box office in 2012, which could be just one of the many reasons she's reportedly close to signing a deal to star in Ben Affleck's next project. Kristen and Ben are both loosely attached to Focus, the story of a grifter who connects with a young woman and teaches her the ropes of conning.
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner were game for an appearance on Spanish variety show El Hormiguero today. They played games and joked around while promoting Breaking Dawn Part 2. Kristen was on the program earlier this year as well, as she talked up Snow White and the Huntsman with Charlize Theron.
It was a busy day in Madrid for the trio, who also stepped out for a photocall this morning and a premiere tonight. Kristen wore a ladylike black and white dress and later changed into a bright yellow number. It's been a whirlwind few days for the stars after kicking off the week with the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere in LA and then heading straight to London, where they hit the red carpet yesterday.
All eyes were on a neon-clad Kristen Stewart, in a Dior dress and Barbara Bui stilettos, at today's Madrid premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2. She was joined by her constant red-carpet companions Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson for the latest leg of their international press tour. The trio flashed smiles for photographers before heading inside, where fans eagerly waited to screen the final installment in the Twilight franchise.
The film opens at midnight, and some analysts predict Breaking Dawn Part 2 will earn at least $130 million during opening weekend. So far, reviews have been less than glowing, but that isn't deterring die-hard fans from swooping up tickets. Before saying farewell to Edward, Bella, and the entire Cullen clan, be sure to catch up on all the films with our comprehensive recap of the entire Twilight Saga.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson continued their Breaking Dawn Part 2 press tour this morning in Spain. They linked up at Madrid's Villa Magna Hotel for a photocall along with Taylor Lautner. Last night, the trio was in the UK for a premiere there. Kristen wore a sexy lace Zuhair Murad jumpsuit to their London event, and changed into jeans and a bomber jacket for their Breaking Dawn afterparty. Today, though, Kristen was a bit more covered up in a black and white Julien Macdonald dress. The next few days will bring Kristen, Robert, and Taylor around Europe in the run-up to the overseas debut of their final Twilight film. Fans in the US, though, will be able to see their finished product starting at midnight tonight.
