Vampires have once again reigned supreme with fans, as “Breaking Dawn Part 2” is set to emerge victorious at the box office over the weekend of November 16-18, 2012.
The final installment of the “Twilight” franchise had no trouble sinking its teeth into the competition while collecting an estimated $71.2 million on Friday and another $41.8 million on Saturday, with the Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart fronted flick expected to take in $141.3 million for its debut weekend.
Dropping into runner-up status after a record breaking opening last weekend was “Skyfall,” as the Daniel Craig starring “007” production raked in a respectable $12.3 million on Friday and $17.7 million on Saturday with second weekend earnings estimated at $41.5 million.
Filling out the top five at the box office in earmarked earnings are the new Daniel Day Lewis historical production “Lincoln” ($21.0 million) in third, followed by Disney’s animated tale “Wreck-It Ralph” ($18.3 million) in fourth and the Denzel Washington led drama “Flight” ($8.6 million) in fifth.
