By Daniel Gates



The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 won the extended Thanksgiving holiday weekend box office.

The vampire franchise’s final installment snagged first place (again) with $66 million for the five-day period, bringing its domestic total to $228.9 million.

James Bond thriller Skyfall took second place with $51.2 million.

The presidential drama Lincoln nabbed third with $34.1 million.

Those top earners and others in the weekend’s Top 10 led to this being the biggest Thanksgiving holiday at the box office — ever.

The new animated holiday film Rise of the Guardians and Life of Pi came in fourth and fifth with $32.3 million and $30.5 million, respectively.

Rounding out the Top 10 were video game character adventure Wreck-It Ralph ($22.7 million), the American invasion remake Red Dawn ($22 million), Flight ($11 million), Silver Linings Playbook ($5.7 million) and Argo ($4.9 million).
