Breaking Dawn Hits $500 Million in Twelve Days
Posted 12.01.11 by reelz
Becoming the ninth film of 2011 to have grossed $500 mill worldwide in twelve days, Breaking Dawn Part 1 has surpassed many expectations. Eleven other films also hit $220 million in North America in just ten days, but the numbers still deem impressive to the Twilight Saga. With $223.4 million domestically and $285 million internationally, Breaking Dawn has definitely done Summit Entertainment proud, and the Co-chairmen of Summit, Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger, had something to say about it.
We couldn't be more pleased with the success of this film and a franchise that the fans have continued to support over the past several years. Thank you to all involved with the films from the actors, filmmakers and Stephenie Meyer to the most important group of all, the global fan base that continues to drive a desire for more Edward, Jacob and Bella
Even though New Moon continues to carry the crown as far as Twilight box office success goes, with a domestic earning of $233 million at the same point in North America, Breaking Dawn is managing to out do the third movie to the saga, Eclipse. This may be a breakthrough for the movie, but there is still a significant amount of time before the movie is out of theaters.
