Talk about a happy Thanksgiving, Hollywood!

This holiday weekend broke box office RECORDS by making the most money during both the Wednesday-Sunday and Friday-Sunday grosses ever seen, no doubt thanks to the respective releases of Breaking Dawn - Part 2 and Skyfall!

That's right, the final segment in The Twilight Saga had the biggest second weekend for any of the movies in its franchise so far with $43.1 million, which means it's made $227 million in the States alone, and $577.7 million WORLDWIDE!

Yup, we're talking HALF a billion dollars right there!

Meanwhile, the newest Bond movie didn't do too shabby itself, with $36 million alone this weekend, which upped its domestic total to $221.7 million…the highest-grossing in its franchise! Oh, and worldwide, it's put away $494 so far!

Of course, that put quite a dent in the newly released Rise of the Guardians, having only made $24 million so far!

But seriously! Was there any way it stood a chance with THOSE two mammoth blockbusters?!

Yeah, we didn't think so!

Ch-ch-check out a full list of the box office top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, $43.1 million
Skyfall, $36 million
Lincoln, $25 million
Rise of the Guardians, $24 million
Life of Pi, $22 million
Wreck-It Ralph, $16.8 million
Red Dawn, $14.6 million
Flight, $8.6 million
Silver Linings Playbook, $4.6 million

    I saw both movies this past weekend and I definitely wasn't disappointed with either of them. I still want to see Flight but I'm not going to go out and see it…definitely a movie to rent. Same goes for Red Dawn.

    Get your facts straight! Skyfall has taken $790 million at the global box office so far. $570 overseas and $220 in US. FACT.

    The Peter Rauhofer mix of "SkyFall" is what I am loving right now on my ipod. I basically listen to it everyday
