• Twilight On Top Again For Third Week in a Row


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – The Hollywood studios are steamrolling towards a record year of ticket sales, as “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2″ has ruled the domestic box office race for three straight weeks.

    Tweens and young women continue to flock to the movie, which has grossed an estimated $702.4 million worldwide for its studio, Summit, a Lionsgate company. In the U.S. and Canada, it is on track to gross $17.4 million this weekend and $254.6 million over three weeks.

    The James Bond vehicle “Skyfall” has done even better worldwide, with more than $850 million in sales. Domestically, it is predicted to sell $17 million this weekend and $246 million over four weeks.

    “Lincoln” continued to build audience based on strong word-of-mouth recommendations, said movie industry analyst Paul Dergerabedian at Hollywood.com Box Office. It was pegged to have a $13.5 million weekend and had a $83.7 million gross over four weeks.

    “The typical post-Thanksgiving slowdown was in effect,” Dergerabedian said, but the industry still had “one heck of a weekend, and the fifth ‘up’ frame versus last year, as we continue toward a record-breaking box office year.”

    Rounding out the 10 most-popular movies in the U.S. and Canada this weekend, as estimated by the studios and collated by Hollywood.com Box Office, are “The Rise Of The Guardians” ($13.5 million), “Life Of Pi” ($12 million), “Wreck-It Ralph” ($7 million), “Killing Them Softly” (premiering at $7 million), “Red Dawn” ($6.6 million), “Flight” ($4.5 million), and “The Collection” (premiering at $3.4 million).
