Breaking Dawn grosses $ 340.9 mn in opening weekend

MUMBAI: Summit Entertainment?s Twilight: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2 has topped the worldwide weekend box office with an opening of $340.9 million including $141.3 million domestically from 4,070 theaters and $199.6 million internationally from 61 markets.

It has been found that the film has been wooing more males than any previous title in the series, who made up 21 per cent of those buying tickets. In terms of age, 50 per cent of the audience were of 25 years and older, it is understood.

On the other hand, the latest James Bond flick Skyfall finished the weekend with a worldwide total of $669.2 million to become the top-grossing James Bond film of all time.

The film, starring Daniel Craig, grossed a stellar $41.5 million in its second weekend domestically pushing its North American total to $161.3 million. Overseas, the film has earned $507.9 million for MGM, Eon Productions and Sony, who distribute the film overseas.

Steven Spielberg?s Lincoln also made headlines as it released nationwide in may theatres. The historical drama took in a strong $21 million from 1,775 theaters for an average of $11,831. Last week, Lincoln, had roped in $22.4 million.

The DreamWorks film, made in association with Participant Media and distributed by Disney domestically, came in No. 3, despite its modest screen count. Lincoln stars Daniel Day-Lewis as the iconic 16th president. Fox, that co-financed the film, is distributing the film internationally.

David O. Russell?s critically acclaimed Silver Linings Playbook and Joe Wright?s Anna Karenina also opened last Friday. Both films did solid but not spectacular business.

While Silver Linings, from The Weinstein Co., grossed $458,430 from 16 theatres in select cities, Focus Features? Anna Karenina grossed $315,395. The film already has earned $10.8 million overseas.
