Summit And Lionsgate Celebrate Breaking Dawn Part 1 Global Box Office Success
While those who are eager to watch The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 over and over to their heartís content will have the opportunity to do so as soon as next month, the newly joined Lionsgate and Summit have celebrated the global success of the film with the first joint release since their union.
As posted by the Hollywood Reporter, Summit and Lionsgate issued an announcement celebrating the worldwide gross of the most recent installment of the film adaptations of Stephenie Meyerís hugely popular Twilight series. The film has earned $701.3 million worldwide, which puts it very close to surpassing The Twilight Saga: New Moon as the top grossing film of the franchise worldwide. The second installment in the series set the bar for the franchise with $709.8 million.
At this point, Breaking Dawn Part 1, the first in the two-part conclusion of Meyerís final book in the series, hasnít surpassed either of the last two films domestically, having earned $280.3 million, which puts it behind Eclipseí $300.5 million and New Moonís $296.6 million. But Breaking Dawn has beaten out both films overseas, with $421 million, which tops New Moonís $413.2 million.
Fans of the franchise have Breaking Dawn Part 2 to look forward to this November. The film will cap off the series, picking up where Breaking Dawn Part 1 left off to conclude Edward and Bellaís story. That releases in theaters on November 16, 2012. In the meantime, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 will be available on DVD/Blu-Ray on February 11th.
