‘Breaking Dawn’ Narrowly Takes Box Office From ‘Skyfall’


It was a hard-fought battle for box office supremacy, but at the end of the day, it’s still very hard to kill a vampire.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” once again claimed the top spot at theaters for the third week in a row, barely beating out Britain’s finest, James Bond in “Skyfall.” The holdovers dominated in a soft weekend for new releases.

The finale of Stephenie Meyers’ vampire series took in an additional $17.4 million, bringing its worldwide total past the $700 million mark, while “Skyfall” came up just short with $17 million.

“Killing Them Softly,” the latest from Brad Pitt and director Andrew Dominik, provided journalists with generous fodder for bad headline puns, debuting in seventh place with $7 million.
