'Breaking Dawn 2' Killed It At The Box Office Last Night
Twilight fans aren't known for keeping their insane lust for the vampire series and its stars under wraps. Recently, they camped out at LA Live for the premiere of the movie, even going to far as to erect a tent city in downtown.
So it should come as no surprise that "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," the final installment of the film, killed it at the box office when it opened last night.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie grossed $30.4 million in Thursday night and midnight runs. That makes it the highest grossing movie from the Twilight series.
Some industry insiders think that the movie could rake in as much as $150 million in North America altogether.
