Edward and Bella honeynoon: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart in Breaking Dawn This may have been the slowest weekend at the domestic box office in 2011 — estimates range from $79 to $82 million — but one star continues to shine (even if steadily losing its brilliance): despite an estimated 60% drop-off rate, Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, topped the North American box-office chart for the third weekend in a row. Breaking Dawn has now become the very first Twilight movie at the no. 1 spot on three weekends (consecutive or otherwise). According to Box Office Mojo, Breaking Dawn earned an estimated $16.9 million, easily beating The Muppets' $11.2 million at no. 2. Even Martin Scorsese's well-received Hugo, which collected $7.62 million at no. 3, was left behind in terms of per-theater average: at 4,046 locations, Breaking Dawn averaged $4,177 per site; Hugo, despite 3D surcharges, averaged only $4,144 at 1,840. Remember, all things being equal, »
