Box office preview: 'Twilight' goes up against a trio of kids movies over Thanksgiving weekend

It’s Thanksgiving weekend, the ultimate time for families to hit the movie theater in search of wholesome fare that will please both Aunt Dawn and little nephew Woody.

Robert Pattinson on the 'Breaking Dawn' wedding: 'For some reason, I went into a total Christopher Walken impression'

One of the most anticipated scenes in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1?  The long awaited wedding between Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart). And considering how many people went to see the movie in theaters this weekend, plenty of people have now gotten to see the action for themselves. (But for formality’s sake, consider this your official SPOILER ALERT.)

We’ve already told you about why the Iron & Wine song that plays during the ceremony held special significance for some of the cast, but Stewart and Pattinson also tell EW about some of the things audiences didn’t get to see. READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' barely misses franchise record with $139.5 mil weekend

Although it didn’t set a franchise record, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 had one of the best openings in box-office history by debuting to $139.5 million, according to studio estimates. That’s the fifth-best opening weekend ever, behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2, The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 3, and The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which held on to the franchise record.

New Moon debuted to a slightly better $142.8 million on the same November weekend two years ago. What’s interesting is how closely Breaking Dawn followed New Moon‘s trajectory. New Moon grossed $72.7 million its first day, and then dropped 42 percent on Saturday and 34 percent on Sunday. By comparison, Breaking Dawn earned $72 million on Friday (the third-best opening day ever), and then fell 44 percent on Saturday and a projected 34 percent today. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' bites into the third-best opening day ever with $72 mil

The draining of money has begun. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1, the fourth movie in the supernatural-romance franchise, grossed an incredible $72 million on Friday, according to early estimates.

That’s the third-best opening day ever, behind only this year’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 ($91.1 million) and 2009’s The Twilight Saga: New Moon ($72.7 million). And while Breaking Dawn fell slightly short of New Moon, it did surpass the opening day of last year’s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which debuted to $68.5 million (albeit on a Wednesday).

'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' audience rating from CinemaScore doesn't sparkle

Okay, so The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 gets a B-plus from moviegoers.


A B-plus ranking from CinemaScore? That’s it?

Granted, a B-plus isn’t terrible, but considering the passion and hysteria surrounding this franchise, it’s a bit of a surprise. New Moon got an A-minus, and Eclipse scored an A.

So what happened here? Did something in this film shake the vampire-loving faithful?

Actually, blame the boyfriends …


Kristen Stewart on 'Breaking Dawn' wedding song: 'I just became instantly emotional'

Dedicated Twilight fans might recognize the song that plays during the long-awaited wedding between Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) when they see Breaking Dawn this weekend (if they haven’t seen it already; the film made over $30 million in midnight screenings Thursday night). It’s a special ‘wedding version’ of the Iron & Wine song, ‘Flightless Bird, American Mouth’ that played during the prom scene in the first Twilight movie way back when in 2008. READ FULL STORY

'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1' earns $30.3 million at midnight showings

The honeymoon ain’t over just yet!

Last night, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 grossed a staggering $30.3 million from Twihard-diehard midnight showings in 3,521 theaters, proving that America’s love affair with Bella, Edward, and Jacob is alive (or dead, or undead — I’m really not sure) and well.

The penultimate Twilight film began its run in line with The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which earned just over $30 million (the exact figure is unknown) at midnight screenings in June 2010. For reference, New Moon pulled in $26.3 million at midnight in 2009.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 still holds the midnight record. The fantasy film earned $43.5 million at midnight on its way to a record-setting $169.2 million opening weekend earlier this year. Breaking Dawn might not reach that high, but its still headed to the box office stratosphere. John Young is predicting a $148 million frame.

Box office preview: Brace yourself for 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn'

It’s that time again, when box-office prognosticators consider a new Twilight movie, throw their hands up in the air, and take a wild guess at what the movie will gross.

Okay, not a completely wild guess — it seems reasonable to think The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 will open somewhere in between $140 million and $155 million. But as the famous William Goldman saying goes, when it comes to Hollywood, nobody knows anything. With that said, here’s my attempt to predict the results of Breaking Dawn, Happy Feet Two, and the rest of the top five: READ FULL STORY

On the scene at the 'Breaking Dawn' tent city: Jackson Rathbone and the 'Twihusband' -- VIDEO

“I think the middle word sums it up there — love,” Abby McArthur-Jones said as she showed off her homemade Edward-loves-Bella poster. Abby is just one of the hundreds of fans who loves Twilight enough to set up camp for four days at the “tent city” in downtown Los Angeles, but she’s also one of the special few who camped with a dedicated Twi-date. “I’ve been calling myself a Twi-husband,” laughed Henry Jones. “To me it’s so worth it for how much fun she’s had.”

EW was live on the scene from Thursday, Nov. 10 to Monday, Nov. 14 to hear the stories and track the progress of some of the most dedicated fans in pop culture today. Watch as the teen-trio of Britany, Brianne, and Kaitlynn sounds off on tent city hygiene, and hear Megan and Kristen discuss their game-plan for charging security for premiere tickets. Breaking Dawn stars Jackson Rathbone and Casey LaBow were also on hand to give EW their thoughts on the fandemonium. “I actually signed a girl’s forehead earlier,” Rathbone said. “I defaced her face.” Watch the video below!
