‘Breaking Dawn’ To Debut As High As $125M


EXCLUSIVE: The international rollout starts Wednesday. But I’ve just learned that an internal Summit Entertainment estimate puts this weekend’s domestic opening of Breaking Dawn Part 1 at $110 million to $125 million. That will make this fourth film in the Twilight Saga franchise the 2nd biggest weekend debut since the studio began making Stephenie Meyer’s vampire romance novels into films – behind only the Twilight sequel New Moon. And remember this is a female-driven 2D movie. It’s the 3D fanboy-driven movies that have been so hurt by slumping box office of late. Once again, the newest installment will be releasing into more than 4,061 locations in North America. No number of theaters yet for the midnight opening Thursday. Since the franchise began, Twilight opened domestically  to $69.6M in 2008, New Moon to $142.8M in 2009, Eclipse to $64.8M in 2010.
