December 4, 2011 BoxOfficeWeekendReportAnother weekend, another win for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1. The latest Twilight movie claimed the top spot at the box office for the third-straight weekend thanks to an average hold and a comparatively poor second-weekend performance from its biggest competitor, The Muppets. On an aggregate level, the Top 12 grossed around $75 million, which is slightly off from the same period last year ($78.3 million). Breaking Dawn dropped 60 percent to an estimated $16.9 million. That tally is the best third-weekend gross out of all of the Twilight movies including New Moon, which fell 64 percent to $15.4 million on the same weekend in 2009. Through 17 days in theaters, the penultimate Twilight movie has earned $247.3 million.

November 22, 2011 As of Nov.21 - Total Domestic Gross $147.9M, Worldwide Gross $300.8 (via @DrownInIt)

November 21, 2011 Box Office Mojo WeekyReport Breaking Dawn's $138.1 million opening is second-best among Twilight movies behind 2009's New Moon ($142.7 million). That's a small gap, though, and Breaking Dawn still managed to claim fifth place on the all-time opening weekend chart behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 3 and New Moon. As is typical for the Twilight movies, its weekend was incredibly front-loaded with 51.9 percent of the gross coming from Friday showings (including its $30.25 midnight tally).

The audience was 80 percent female and 60 percent over 21 years old. That's more female-skewing than Eclipse (65 percent) but even with New Moon (80 percent). Also, the audience was younger for those movies (only 50 percent over 21 years old), though it's logical for the crowd to age along with the series. Breaking Dawn received a "B+" CinemaScore, which improved to an "A-" among females.
