Hey! You know that if even the former Presidential candidate is checking it out during its opening weekend, you've got a hit on your hands!
That's right, we're now learning that Mitt Romney contributed to what Summit is estimating to be a $141.3 million debut for the concluding chapter to The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn - Part 2's opening weekend, which marks it as making nearly the exact amount its predecessor, Breaking Dawn - Part 1, made in a similar timeframe, and just below the franchise's record-holder, New Moon!
On a much larger scale, however, the collective gross will mark it as the EIGHTH largest opening weekend for a movie EVER…even though three of the movies ahead of it - The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Hunger Games - all opened this year, as well!
No shame in that, though!
We're delighted to see that our beloved Edward and Bella could close out the year of mega-blockbusters with some sparkles!
Ch-ch-ch-check out the top ten biggest box office opening weekends of all time…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
