“Twilight” topping “The Muppets” (so far) at Thanksgiving box

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: More audience members chose to sink their teeth into a “Twilight” sequel after their turkey dinners this Thanksgiving, even though newcomers “The Muppets” and “Arthur Christmas” had strong showings over the holiday frame.

So far, “Breaking Dawn, Part 1” continues to lead the box office charge with an estimated $12.5M on Thanksgiving eve, THR reports, giving the sequel hopes of reaching $60 million for the five-day holiday gross once all is said and done.

“The Muppets,” if numbers hold true, would be behind it, earning $6.6M on Wednesday or just about half what “Twilight” pulled in. The trade says Disney’s Muppets reboot has a “strong shot” at reaching $40M on the weekend, which would be considered a win for a property that has been in mothballs for ages.

Warner Bros’ sequel “Happy Feet 2” was tracking ahead of Sony’s “Arthur Christmas” at the box office. The newcomer nabbed $2.4 million in pre-holiday ticket sales but could rebound over the longer weekend.

And Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo,” opening in only 1,277 theaters, landed at No. 8 on the top 10 so far with an estimate $1.1M.
