Audiences had plenty of new releases to feast on over the holiday weekend at the box office, but last weekend's top three showed impressive staying power.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 grossed an estimated $43. million — the highest second weekend ever for a Twilight movie, according to Box Office Mojo. At No. 2, Skyfall also broke a record, specifically for the highest-grossing James Bond movie ever, thanks in part to its third weekend haul of $36 million, which brings its total to $2217 million. Lincoln, again, took third place with $25 million.
In fourth place, Rise of the Guardians rose above the rest of the new releases with a $24 million debut. Another new release, Ang Lee's dreamy adaptation of the acclaimed novel Life of Pi, followed at No. 5 with $22 million.
