Breaking Dawn Passes $700 Million Mark Globally; Will Be Biggest Twilight Film

Truth rating: 10

Summit Entertainment has just announced that Breaking Dawn Part 1, the fourth installment in the Twilight Saga, has grossed an estimated $701.3 million globally since the film was released in November.

Breaking Dawn Part 1 , starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, is also on its way to becoming the highest grossing film in the series.

The film is just a few million dollars away from passing New Moon, which took in $709.8 million.

ESTIMATES: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 Could Hit $125 Million Opening Weekend


According to reported early studio estimates, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 is primed to earn more than $110 million in its opening weekend at the domestic box office.

Some projections have the fourth film in the series hitting the $125 million mark.

Either figure would make Breaking Dawn the easy weekend winner and give it the second-highest opening in the franchise’s history, behind only New Moon, which racked up $142.8 million when it debuted almost exactly two years ago.

First Three Twilight Movies Returning to Theaters Next Month


The first three Twilight Saga films are returning to theaters in the Tuesdays leading up to the November 18 release of the franchise’s fourth installment, Breaking Dawn – Part I.
