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!
