Breaking Dawn Is Number One at the Box Office

Box Office: Breaking Dawn Breaks the Bank

In news that will surprise no one, Breaking Dawn Part 1 easily won the top spot at the box office with $139.5 million. The huge sum just barely missed out on making it the biggest Twilight opening ever; that honor still belongs to New Moon, which made $142.7 million in 2009. Breaking Dawn Part 1's opening is still impressive; it's the second-biggest opening weekend in the vampire series, and the fifth biggest opening of all time.

Way back in second place was new release Happy Feet 2 with $22 million, followed by last week's box office winner Immortals with $12.3 million. Adam Sandler's comedy Jack and Jill came in fourth with $12 million, and animated hit Puss in Boots completed the top five with $10.7 million. In limited release, George Clooney's drama The Descendants debuted in 10th with $1.2 million.
