‘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.

As for the day and date international rollout, here’s the release schedule: 

November 16th – Belgium, France, Italy, Netherlands, South Africa, Sweden,  Switzerland;

November 17th – Australia, Argentina, Bahrain, Bolivia, Chile, CIS, Croatia, Czech, Denmark, Egypt, Greece,Hungary, Israel, Lebanon, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Peru, Portugal, Qatar, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, UAE, Ukraine;

November  18th – Aruba, Brazil, Bulgaria,Colombia, Ecuador, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Indonesia, Latvia, Lithuania, Philippines, Poland, Romania, 
Taiwan, Turkey, Uruguay, Venezuela, West Indies, UK.

"Breaking Dawn" Release Date Confirmed   1 comment

A Summit Entertainment spokesperson has confirmed to HitFix that “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” will open nationwide on Nov. 18, 2011. It’s still officially unknown if “Dawn” will be broken up into one or, as rumored, two films.  Stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are all expected to return.

Directed by Oscar-winner Bill Condon, the fourth book in Stephenie Meyer’s popular series chronicles Bella’s most advanced initiation into the vampire world to date, but is also seen by many as the most difficult to adapt of all the best-selling novels.   Melissa Rosenberg, who adapted the first two novels, would continue in that role for “Dawn.”

The third movie in the series,
“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” will debut in theaters on June 30 nationwide and in IMAX.
