Another weekend come and gone, another weekend where The Twilight Sage: Breaking Dawn Part 2 and Skyfall reign supreme. Specifically speaking, Twilight managed to pull in another $17M pulling the highly anticipated sequel to $254.5M in three weeks. It’s by far the best grossing Twilight film after three weeks of the franchise.
Coming in second this weekend is the James Bond action-thriller Skyfall, with $17M, pulling the film to $246M in about a month’s time. Already the best grossing James Bond film ever, the movie continues to kick ass and take names. We’re not even talking about the money the film will make when it is released on Blu-ray at some point in the spring.
Third at the box office this weekend was the unexpected Spielberg hit, Lincoln, with $13.5M bringing its three week total up to nearly $84M. Considering the film only cost $65M to make, we’re talking about one of Spielberg’s greatest achievements.
Rounding out the top five this weekend was the Dreamworks’ animated holiday film Rise of the Guardians and Ang Lee’s Life of Pi, pulling in $13.5M and $12M respectively.
As a side note, the weekend’s only real new release film, the Brad Pitt gangster-drama Killing Them Softly posted a disappointing $7M, only good enough for seventh at the box office.
