The sun has set on the Twilight franchise with one last blockbuster opening for the supernatural romance.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 sucked up $141.3 million domestically over opening weekend and $199.6 million more overseas for a worldwide debut of $340.9 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The finale ranks eighth on the list of all-time domestic debuts, and leaves Twilight with three of the top-10 openings, joining 2009's New Moon (number seven with $142.8 million) and last year's Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (number nine with $138.1 million).

Last May's The Avengers is number one with $207.4 million. Batman is the only other franchise with more than one top-10 opening: last July's The Dark Knight Rises (number three with $160.9 million) and 2008's The Dark Knight (number four with $158.4 million).

Though Twilight still is a female-driven franchise, with girls and women making up 79 percent of the opening-weekend audience, the finale drew the biggest male crowds in the series. »
