Breaking Dawn Part 2 Opening Weekend Rakes in £15.85 Million in UK
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 broke the weekend opening record for the fanchise previously set by Breaking Dawn Part 1. The movie obviously went straight to the number one spot kicking James Bond movie Skyfall to the kerb.
It was always going to take a big movie to knock Skyfall off the UK box-office summit, and they don’t come much bigger than The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. The series finale debuted with a whopping £15.85m from three days, the biggest of the franchise. Breaking Dawn – Part 1 previously held the franchise record, with £13.91m. Each successive Twilight film has improved on the opening of the previous instalment. The original movie debuted in December 2008 with £2.51m; New Moon followed 11 months later with an £11.68m opening; and Eclipse in July 2010 with £13.76m, although this figure included significant previews.
