Like I said last week, Twilight : Breaking Dawn Part 2 was bound to have such a massive opening box office weekend that it would soar above Skyfall  and finally knock Bond back into second place. Wait, no, don’t go and check back, just trust me, that’s definitely what I said. Honestly.

With £15.85 million taken in its opening three days, the latest Twilight has the highest opening gross of any film in the franchise thus far.  Bond experienced his sharpest drop off yet, down 47% on its third week takings, but even with the expected gradual decline in the coming weeks, it still looks set to overtake Avatar’s record box-office haul of £94million given that in just four weeks it has already managed to bank a cool £82million.

Twilight movies don’t tend to have the legs of many other blockbusters as the die-hard fan base flock to see it opening weekend, »
