This weekend was very important for the fans of the Twilight Saga because they had the chance to take part at the opening of the fourth vampire hit Breaking Dawn Part 1. The motion picture earned $139.5 million in its debut weekend, according to Us Weekly.
he success of the movie amazed movie critics all over the world because “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part 1)” obtained the biggest local profit. Cash registers at local movie theaters have gathered the staggering sum of $139.5 million, whereas the movie won $144 million from cinemas across the world.
Although the movie continues to attract many viewers, the numbers show that less people have bought tickets to the movie premiere. In 2009, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” premiere gained $142.8 million from domestic sales, whereas in 2011 the profit was somewhat smaller.
The second place was occupied by Warner Bros. 3D production “Happy Feet Two” which also debuted this weekend. Based on Us Weekly’s report, the sequel of the penguin-based story was not as successful as the first film. The Warner Bros. studios cashed in only $22 million this weekend for “Happy Feet Two” whereas the first film gained $41.5 million in 2006.
“Immortals” was the most watched movie last weekend, but the profits lowered considerably this week. The Relativity Media production fell on the third place on Sunday because it did not earn more than $12.2 million. Since the official release of the movie on November 11 “Immortals” has gathered $52.9 million.
Everybody was expecting the latest comedy produced by Adam Sandler to become a hit, but “Jack and Jill” did not live up to the expectations. The comedy featuring Adam Sandler and Katie Holmes did not make more than $12 million this weekend. Nevertheless, it is still among the top five most watched movies occupying the fourth place.
“Puss in boots” was released four weeks ago, but it continues to be a success even today. The film made a $10.7 million profit which is why it remains the fifth most watched production in US movie theaters.
