“Twilight: Breaking Dawn” busts through the $500M mark worldwide


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Bill Condon’s “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1” officially has transitioned from a smash hit to a juggernaut.

Box office figures show that the fourth and next-to-last “Twilight” feature topped $500 million at the worldwide box in 12 days, making it the ninth film this year to reach that staggering benchmark. The numbers divided as such (so far): $223.4M in the U.S., and an additional $285M in foreign markets.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the success of this film and a franchise that the fans have continued to support over the past several years. Thank you to all involved with the films from the actors, filmmakers and Stephenie Meyer to the most important group of all, the global fan base that continues to drive a desire for more Edward, Jacob and Bella,” Summit co-chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger said in a statement.

Currently, “Breaking Dawn” is the fifth-highest-grossing domestic release in 2011, though it’s fast approaching “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” which has $241M in U.S. tickets sales. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2” remains the year’s highest-grossing film at $381 million.
