The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 Makes It Rain In The Theaters With $139.5 Million

Looks like the critic’s terrible reviews didn’t keep the bloodsucker lovers out of the theater.

Twihards came out in full force to see The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 in its opening weekend.

The film — the fourth in the hit vampire series starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner — earned a staggering $139.5 million domestically. It earned an additional $144 million worldwide, though it failed to surpass The Twilight Saga: New Moon’s $142.8 million domestic opening in 2009.

The Warner Bros. 3D film Happy Feet Two debuted in second place with $22 million. It grossed just half of the original movie, which opened with $41.5 million in 2006.

Last week’s big winner Immortals fell to third place with $12.2 million. The film — which costars Kellan Lutz and Freida Pinto — has earned $52.9 million since its November 11 debut.

The Adam Sandler and Katie Holmes comedy Jack and Jill fared slightly worse than Immortals with $12 million, falling two spots to fourth place. After four weeks in theaters, Puss in Boots managed to stay in the top five with $10.7 million.

Rounding out the Top 10: Tower Heist (No. 6, $6.9 million), J. Edgar (No. 7, $5.9 million), Harold & Kumar 3D Xmas (No. 8, $2.9 million), In Time (No. 9, $1.6 million) and The Descendants (No. 10, $1.2 million).

With money like this coming in this movie franchise may NEVER end!
