Breaking Dawn Part 1: Estimated $142 Million Opening Weekend
11.17.11 by REELZ
With just a couple days to go until Twilight's Breaking Dawn Part 1 US debut, a whopping $142 million in ticket sales is expected for the movie's opening weekend. Summit Entertainment gauged around $110-125M, but Rival Studios claims Summit is underestimating by almost $20M! If these numbers ring true, Breaking Dawn Part 1 will be competing with New Moon for the Twilight saga's highest revenue opening weekend.
So far, Twilight has had quite the successful run, with the first three movies making more than $277.2M in their opening weekends and approximately $1.6 billion overall. It's no wonder this much-anticipated 4th part of the series has such high expectations for the 4,061 U.S. theaters it will be released in this coming weekend.
Here is the rundown of the The Twilight series' opening weekend numbers. Where do you think Breaking Dawn Part 1 will land?
