#BOXOFFICE: “TWILIGHT” MAKES IT THREE-IN-A-ROW
No surprises here! The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 reigns for a third consecutive week on traditionally what is known as a post-U.S. Thanksgiving slump at the Box Office. The final installment in the Franchise earns $17.2 million this weekend for Summit Entertainment/eOne Films, from 4,008 theatres across North America – now grossing over $253 million in its domestic Run.
Skyfall certainly is no slouch and continues to perform exceedingly well even in its fourth week , hanging-on in second spot with $17 million for Sony Pictures, ahead of a resilient Lincoln in third with $13.3 million fod Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
Animated Feature Rise of the Guardians lands in fifth with $13.2 million for Paramount Pictures, just ahead of 20th Century Fox’s Life of Pi 3-D lands in fifth spot in its second week with $11.4 million.
Killing Them Softly which received positive feedback at Cannes in May opens in 2,424 theatres for The Weinstein Co./Alliance Films with $6.8 million, which is slightly below expectations, but yet also expected on a weekend where Titles opening wide traditionally haven’t done well.
The extremely well-reviewed (90% at Rotten Tomatoes) Silver Linings Playbook in its second week of release in only 371 theatres earns $3.1 million.
