To the surprise of no one, the top movie at this weekend’s box office was the vampire drama, ‘Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.’ The movie is the first chapter of a two-part finale to one of the most popular movie series in history. Breaking Dawn blew away the competition by grossing $139,500,000.
Coming in a distant second at the weekend box office was ‘Happy Feet Two.’ The movie about penguins who love to dance and sing probably would have done quite a bit better on any other weekend, but sparkly vampires were just too hard to defeat! The sequel to Happy Feet ended up grossing $22,025,000, which was still a good deal more than what the third place finisher took in.
‘Immortals’ took the third slot at the weekend box office by grossing a little over $12,000,000. Following close behind in the fourth spot was the new Adam Sandler movie, ‘Jack and Jill’. The ‘Shrek’ spin off ‘Puss in Boots’ rounded out the top five.
