The vamps and vampires of "Twilight: Breaking Dawn 2- Part 2" have sunk their fangs into the domestic and global box office, and won't let go. The franchise finale took in $17.4 million to claim its third consecutive weekend victory in North America, but it has been even more impressive overseas.
"Skyfall" finished a close second in its fourth week with $17 million, to raise the domestic haul for the 23rd James Bond movie to $246 million. It was followed by "Lincoln," "Rise of the Guardians" and "Life of Pi." The Brad Pitt crime drama "Killing Them Softly" tanked in its debut, bringing in a disappointing $7 million.
"Breaking Dawn 2" has now taken in $254.6 overall in the U.S., which is just behind the comparable three-week total of 2009's "New Moon" ($259 million), but ahead of "Eclipse" and "Breaking Dawn 1," both of which had $251 million after three weeks. However "Breaking Dawn 2" is taking a much bigger bite of the overseas box office.
