Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1 came in number 1 this weekend with a whopping $140M busting every other movie out the water!

According to Deadline,

1. Breaking Dawn Part 1 (Summit) NEW [4,061 Theaters]
Friday $72M (including $30.2M midnights), Estimated Weekend $140M

Yowza! Summit Entertainment was cautiously optimistic that this fourth Twilight Saga installment Breaking Dawn Part 1 could match or beat the biggest one-day and Friday opening in the franchise’s history. It didn’t. But it was the #3 best-ever Single Day and Friday opening, behind only Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2‘s $91M and the Twilight Saga New Moon‘s $72.7M. Despite director Bill Condon receiving the worst reviews of the franchise, this pic today earned a ‘B+’ CinemaScore. Also, the penultimate pic based on Stephenie Meyer’s vampire romance novels is off to a great start internationally as it began its roll out in 54 markets around the globe with $66M starting Wednesday through Friday screenings. The global total is now $138M.
