Last week’s new releases were met with a mixed bag of weekend numbers—the standout releases, Killing Them Softly and The Collection, made opening-weekend profits that were lower and higher than their estimates, respectively.

'Twilight' retains top spot with $17 mil; holdovers 'Skyfall,' 'Lincoln' round out top three – In its third frame with $17.4 million, Summit's "Twilight" finale, "Breaking Dawn -- Part 2," eked out a narrow victory over Sony-MGM's "Skyfall," which grossed an estimated $17 million in its fourth domestic outing. "Part 2" has cumed $254.6 million domestically and counting; "Skyfall" reached $246 million Stateside. The post-Thanksgiving frame usually is one of the slowest moviegoing weekends of the year, though with totals at north of $110 million, this weekend doesn't even rank in the top five slowest frames of 2012. 7 years 30 weeks ago via brucelee

Weekend Box Office Report: 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2' Continues to Dominate

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II
Despite a plethora of new releases earlier this week, the majority of box office profits continued to go to some of the more high-profile films currently in theaters -- namely, the last film in the Twilight series.

Box Office Report: 'Breaking Dawn,' 'Skyfall' and 'Lincoln' Lead Record Thanksgiving – Among new offerings on the holiday menu, "Rise of the Guardians" is soft with $32.6 five-day debut, while "Life of Pi" beats expectations with $30.2 million. 7 years 31 weeks ago via brucelee

'Breaking Dawn 2' is No. 1: $141.3M – Say what you will about the Twilight series, but you can’t fault it for being inconsistent. The popular vampire franchise’s final installment, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, scored the eighth biggest opening weekend of all time with a $141.3 million debut. If Summit’s estimates hold up, that’s just a touch ahead of Breaking Dawn – Part 1, which started with $138.1 million last year, and just a touch behind New Moon, which opened with $142.8 million in 2009. 7 years 32 weeks ago via theothersenhman

With the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, the journey that began back in 2008 with the first Twilight movie is complete. Depending on where one stands, this will either be a sad moment or a big sigh of relief, especially if one reviews movies for a living.

'Skyfall' shakes Stateside B.O. with $87.8 mil; 'Lincoln' strong with $82K per screen – After three weekends of high-flying overseas playtime, Sony-MGM's 23rd James Bond film "Skyfall" turned its scope Stateside, scoring the franchise's biggest domestic opening weekend with an estimated $87.8 million. "Skyfall" had another massive weekend internationally, estimating $89 million for an overseas cume of $428.6 million. Pic's worldwide tally stands at $518.6 million. 7 years 33 weeks ago via brucelee

Review: 'Lincoln' A Leader, Not A Celebrity

11:23 AM 11/9/2012 by Sara Vizcarrondo
Apparently, no one’s ever won an Oscar for playing a president. I suspect that’s why director Steven Spielberg cast Daniel Day Lewis. (Better odds.) His eerily smooth performance as the 16th president is a consistent mix of gawky authority and patrician ease. He instructs his Whitehouse staff with parables and anecdotes; the elders don’t all appreciate it but the younger staff clings to his stories like good students, listening intently for cues.
