As anyone on Facebook knows, A LOT of people saw Twilight: Breaking Dawn this weekend...  But did it break any records?

In a word, no, but it came close.  It had the 5th highest opening in the history of film, and was far and away the highest grossing movie this weekend, but it did not break the #1 spot currently held by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2. And in actuality, it wasn't even the best opening weekend in Twilight franchise history, New Moon has that distinction.

 

The other two movies that opened better than Breaking Dawn include, Batman - The Dark Night and SpiderMan 3.  New Moon raked in $140 million this weekend
