'Breaking Dawn' Tops Box Office for Third Week

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part I took the top spot at the box office for the third week in a row!

The latest installment in the Twilight franchise, starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, brought in an estimated $16.9 million in ticket sales.

Second place went to The Muppets, which dropped more quickly than expected but still earned a strong $11.2 million.

Variety reports that both Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan‘s Shame and George Clooney‘s The Descendants have been faring well in limited release.

    I hate how some Americans have the opportunity to see Shame, but instead they’re watching Twilight! But at least it’s doing well on limited.

    Who is watching this bullcrap when there are legitimately great films in the theaters! Seriously people spend your money on films that actually deserve it: Hugo, Shame, My Week With Marilyn, The Descendants, A Dangerous Method, even The Muppets got rave reviews.

  • hehe

    ^It’s their hard earned money, not your’s. After a hard day’s work, sometimes people just like to go to the theaters and relax and enjoy a fluff, pop culturally relevant movie. Don’t be so up your own asss and see a fun movie once in your life, me. Why are you on JJ anyways if you are so high brow in your film choices? JJ readers and Breaking Dawn fans sound like they go hand in hand if you ask me. Go read BBC global politics.

    Sounds like someone is emotionally invested in these ‘top critic’ movies/actors and/or hate Twilight for ::cough:: taking the spotlight away from Harry Potter. I don’t think they really enjoy those ‘intellectual’ movies if they read gossip blogs.

    Oh my god. This is sad.

    Saw My Week with Marilyn this weekend. It was an excellent movie and Michelle Williams created a memorable performance of the complex Marilyn Monroe. It’s definitely worthy of an Oscar nomination. Looking forward to seeing Shame, as it opens next weekend in my area. I’ll leave the Twilight franchise to the Twi-hard kiddies.

    I don’t get who would choose BD over the Muppets. I have yet to hear anything bad about that movie. In fact, I hear people say every time they’re even a little depressed, they’re going to watch it and cheer back up.
    BD was entertaining though. It just might not be my first choice.
