411's Box Office Report: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Holds Onto #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 11.25.2012





There was no stopping the sparkly vampires this Thanksgiving weekend. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 held onto the #1 spot at the box office, grossing $64 million over the five-day Thanksgiving weekend. That gives the film a second-weekend drop of 55%, which is basically identical to the second-weekend drop of Breaking Dawn - Part 1. The film has now grossed $227 million domestically and $577.8 million worldwide on a $120 million budget.

Holding onto second place was Skyfall, which brought in $51.1 million in its third weekend. The twenty-third James Bond film has now grossed $221.7 million domestically and $790.1 million worldwide. It had a budget of $200 million.

Lincoln was also steady, holding even at #3 in its third weekend with $34.1 million. The Steven Spielberg-directed historical biopic continued to do well due to strong reviews and word of mouth; it has brought in $62.2 million on a $65 million budget.

Rise of the Guardians opened somewhat disappointingly, bringing in $32.6 million over the five-day weekend. The animated seasonal adventure film averaged $8,926 from the 3,653 theaters it opened in and added $13.5 million overseas for a total of $46.1 million worldwide. The film has a budget of $145 million.

Life of Pi opened well above studio hopes, bringing in $30.2 million over the five-day weekend. The Ang Lee-directed film was handicapped by a lack of star power but was marketed very well, raising awareness for the film. It averaged $10,389 from 2,902 theaters and brought in $17.5 million internationally for a first-weekend worldwide total of $47.7 million. The film's budget was $120 million.

Wreck-It Ralph was down two places to #6 in its fourth weekend with $23 million. The CGI animated video game-themed movie now grossed $149.5 million domestically and $190.7 million worldwide. Its budget was $165 million.

Opening somewhat better than expected at #7 was Red Dawn, which brought in $22 million in its first weekend. The Chris Hemsworth-led action remake averaged $8,076 in 2,724 theaters; it had a budget of $65 million.

Flight was down three spots, hitting #8 in its fourth weekend with $11.4 million. The Denzel Washington-led drama has a total of $74.9 million domestically and $77 million worldwide with a budget of $31 million.

The Silver Linings Playbook expanded in its second weekend strong enough to hit #9, up eight places from its limited release opening last week. The film brought in $5.9 million from just 367 theaters for a per-theater average of $16,080. The film has totaled $6.5 million in two weeks from a budget of $21 million.

Argo was down four spots to #10 in its seventh weekend, bringing in $5.1 million. The film has now grossed $98.1 million domestically and $138.5 million worldwide on a $44.5 million budget.

The weekend box office tally was $205.2 million, up an impressive 25% from last year's $164.7 million gross that was led by The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1's $61.9 million opening.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
