Melissa Rosenberg talks about tackling the final film.
While no records were broken, Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 easily won the weekend box office.

The fifth and final Twilight film opened with $141.3 million, just below Twilight: New Moon’s franchise-best tally of $142.8 million. Industry analysts were expecting the finale, starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, to open with larger numbers.

In its second frame, Skyfall came in at No. 2 with $41.5 million. The 23rd James Bond film, starring Daniel Craig, has earned $161.3 million in 10 days, putting it on track to become the highest-grossing Bond film ever.

Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln grossed an impressive $21 million on only 1,775 screens, scoring the No. 3 spot. The Oscar-hopeful, backed with stellar reviews, is expected to fare well at the box office over the coming weeks.

Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph added another $18.4 million to its total, good enough for fourth place. Flight, starring Denzel Washington, rounded out the Top 5 with $8.6 million.
