Looks like Kristen Stewart's public nuzzling with Rupert Sanders was good for business, after all. Breaking Dawn – Part 2, the last Twilight film, made $141.3 million over the weekend, giving it $340.9 million worldwide. This is notable not just because of the heartbreaking scandal, but also because it proves once and for all that "females can fuel an event franchise," as The Hollywood Reporter put it, so there's that.
Liam Neeson's 60-year-old action star schtick proved victorious for another weekend, as Taken 2 held on to the box office's top spot with $22.5 million. It's down 55% since last weekend, but it's already earned $88.3 million in ten days. Not bad, and more than enough to generate interest in a third film.
In another slow box office weekend, Gyllenhaal's End of Watch and Lawrence's House at the End of the Street each brought in $13 million, which means we'll have to wait another full day for the official results of what Box Office Mojo calls "one of the tightest races ever for first place at the box office." How exciting for everyone.
