Bella Swan, James Bond and Abe Lincoln have combined to lift Hollywood to record (American Thanksgiving) revenue at the box office.
Kristen Stewart's finale as Bella in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 was number one again with $64 million during the five-day holiday stretch that began Wednesday, according to studio estimates Sunday.
According to box-office tracker Hollywood.com, the three films paced Hollywood to an all-time Thanksgiving week best of about $290 million from Wednesday to Sunday.
That tops the previous record of $273 million over Thanksgiving in 2009, when The Twilight Saga: New Moon led the weekend.
This U.S. Thanksgiving also was a huge 25 percent jump from a year ago, when domestic revenues were a weak $232 million as some big holiday releases fizzled. »
