Box Score: Breaking Dawn failed to Eclipse New Moon.



Nailing the fifth best opening weekend of all times, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 [TWLI4] bite off an estimated $139.5 million.  However, the fourth installment failed to top the series best $142.8 million from 2009's The Twilight Saga: New Moon.   As expected 80% of the audience was female, while 50% was over the age of 25.  All the Twilight films have been extremely front-loaded by Twihards.

Happy Feet Two [HPYF2] finished second with a disappointing $22.0 million, barely half of Happy Feet's $41.5 milion debut in 2006.   The animated penguins face competition from three new family films for Thanksgiving.

Last week's champ Immortals [IMRTL] tumbled 62% to $12.3 million in its second weekend.  The Greek myth epic has banked nearly $60 million.

Jack and Jill [JAJIL] fell 52% to $12.0 million.  The Adam Sandler comedy has grossed $41.0 million after 10 days.

Puss in Boots [PUSNB] collected another $10.7 million bringing its total to $122.3 million.
