Box Office: 'Breaking Dawn Pt. 2' Opened at $141 million
With a huge fanbase, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" opened to an estimated $141 million this weekend. The final chapter in the film series adapting Stephenie Meyers' popular novels came quite close to breaking the franchise opening record set by "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" which grossed $142.8 million three years ago. It does, however, top the $138.1 million "Part 1" found last year. The tally also knocks "Part 1" to No. 9 on the all time opening weekends chart as "Part 2" settles into the 8th spot.
It must also be noted that "Breaking Dawn, Pt. 2." didn't have the benefit of inflated 3D or IMAX ticket prices contributing to the tally.
