When The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 hit theaters Nov. 16, the film saw the biggest opening weekend of the entire Twilight saga.'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.
