“Breaking Dawn” No.1 at the box office over the weekend

Over the post-Thanksgiving weekend “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1” was again No.1 at the box office.
The US was not the only place where “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1” occupied the first place among viewers’ preferences. The motion picture cashed in $113.5 million from Friday to Sunday worldwide. American and Canadian cinemas sold tickets equaling $42 million during the last three days, whereas the five-day Thanksgiving holiday brought $62.3 million revenue to the producers and the cast of the film.

Richie Fay, president of domestic distribution for independent studio Summit Entertainment thinks “Breaking Dawn” was well-received by fans all over the world. The impossible human-vampire-werewolf love triangle inspired by Steven Meyer’s novels has attracted numerous female fans who desperately wait for a new production. Thus, “Breaking Dawn” reached $489.3 million globally ever since it was released two weeks ago.

The Muppets made a strong comeback after 12 years of absence. The cartoon characters seem to enjoy the same popularity because the movie was well-received by the public. The Disney production cashed in $29.5 million at North American cinemas during the last three days and $42 million throughout the five-day holiday weekend. Disney’s Dave Hollis confessed that he wasn’t expecting the 90s show to have such a strong impact on viewers, but the movie exceeded their expectations.

Over the last three days, animated movie “Happy Feet Two” cashed in $13.4 million.

The biggest surprise came from the producers of the animated 3D movie “Arthur Christmas”. The movie was produced with $98 million, but it managed to pull in $12.7 million during the first three days of broadcast. “Hugo”, on the other hand, was less requested; even so, it managed to earn $15.4 million over five days, despite the small numbers of cinemas broadcasting it.

Michelle Williams’ “My Week with Marilyn” was long praised by critics. Even though the production opened with only $1.8 million over three days, analysts think the film will bring Michelle an Academy Award.
