Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Earns $139 Million at Box Office

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 adaptation broke the bank this weekend, earning an estimated $139.5 million at the box office.

Box Office Mojo has the complete report on the adaptation of Stephenie Meyer‘s popular novel: “As is typical for the Twilight movies, its weekend was incredibly front-loaded with 51.6 percent of the gross coming from Friday showings (including its $30.25 midnight tally). The audience was 80 percent female and 60 percent over 21 years old … Breaking Dawn received a “B+” CinemaScore, which improved to an “A-” among females.”

Last week, Goodreads produced the infographic embedded above, revealing The Twilight Belt–the parts of the country with the highest concentration of  Meyer fans.
