The “Twilight” saga just premiered its last part and fans worldwide hit the movie theatres to see it. In the United States, “Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” topped the box office with a whopping $71.2 million.
It might have been the grand finale, but fans didn’t take movie theaters by assault as they did with previous “Twilight” movies. In fact, even if “Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” brought in $71.2 million for the opening day, it didn’t top “Breaking Dawn – Part 1” that scored $71.6 million or “New Moon” that sucked fans pockets of $72.7 million.
It might just be that “Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” was released such a long time after the first part, or the troubled relationship of stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. The cheating scandal and breakup they went through this summer, might have broken the spell. The whole fiasco reminded everybody they are actors playing a part in “Twilight” where Edward and Bella are so insanely in love, nothing can stand between them.
For the weekend box office, Summit Entertainment estimates “Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” is going to bring in a total of $135 million. Overseas, the movie has already produced revenue of $91 million, but it took it three days of screenings in movie theaters to get to that value.
Even though, the movie’s box office score marks as the sixth-highest opening day in U.S. history, fans weren’t all that compelled to say farewell to their “once” favorite actors. And since Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson aren’t confirming their relationship status, it frustrates fans all the most. Being kept in the dark isn’t something fans appreciate, particularly since Edward and Bella’s love story was so inspiring for them.
The media has been grilling both Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart about their romance, but none of them gave in. They even had co-stars address the cheating scandal but they kept distance from the subject. Now, the hottest question is: what will Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson do after the end of “Twilight”.
“It’s hard to sign on to something before you know what it’s going to be” Kristen Stewart told British Vogue about doing another film franchise. “My guess is that probably not. It’s just really rare to find something that lends itself to that. I would also probably want to know where it was going”.
