‘Breaking Dawn — Part 2′ Had Biggest Opening Weekend of ‘Twilight’ Franchise — VIDEO

When The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 hit theaters Nov. 16, the film saw the biggest opening weekend of the entire Twilight saga. Hollywood.com‘s Paul Dergarabedian talked to Bloomberg about how the success of the final Twilight chapter — especially its midnight screenings numbers — have paved the way for other films like The Hunger Games to do extremely well. Dergarabedian notes, however, that while midnight screenings numbers are a good indicator of how well a movie will open, it is not the only indicator. Films like The Hunger Games and Avengers opened with $19.7 million and $18.7 million, respectively, at midnight screenings, but closed out the weekend with $152 million and $201.4 million, respectively.

As the resident CW-lover on the Hollywood.com staff, she truly believes her Clark Kent/Dean Winchester/Damon Salvatore/Lucas Scott/Oliver Queen/Chuck Bass/Seymour Birkhoff/Wade Kinsella/Vincent Keller/Micah Barnes is out there somewhere, waiting for her, in real life (just go with it). After graduating from Northwestern University with a degree in journalism, Sydney has made it her mission to campaign for more shirtless scenes for her favorite CW hunks. You're welcome.
