It seems that not everyone spent their Thanksgiving at home with turkeys, relatives and football this weekend; it was also a record breaking week at the movies. Thanks to big earners like “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part Two,” “Skyfall” and “Lincoln,” the box office took around $290 million this weekend: the highest earning Thanksgiving weekend ever, according to MTV.
The final part of the “Twilight” saga was always going to be a big earner, and it held onto it’s number one spot for the second week running. It has now taken $227 million domestically, as well as a further $350 million overseas.
“Skyfall” is easily the most successful of the James Bond series so far, and took a further $51 million last week, putting it at number two. Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” made number three with $34.1 million, and has made $62.2 million so far.
Dreamworks’ latest animation “Rise of the Guardians” was expected to cause trouble for “Breaking Dawn” but has underperformed, taking $32.6 million and debuting at number four. This makes it Dreamworks’ least successful opening since “Flushed Away” in 2006.
