With two new nationwide releases Killing Them Softly and The Collection failing to make any noise at the box office, the post-Thanksgiving weekend lived up its reputation as a dumping ground. As a result, for the third-straight weekend the top three movies were The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Skyfall and Lincoln. On the strength of those holdovers, the Top 12 earned an estimated $107.5 million, which is up a whopping 46 percent from the same frame last year.Breaking Dawn Part 2 three-peated with an estimated $17.4 million (off 60 percent). The fifth and final Twilight movie continues to hang on slightly better than its predecessors, and with a $254.6 million total it's now within $1 million of catching up to New Moon. This was Lionsgate/Summit's 11th weekend this year with a first place movie (four for Hunger Games, two for The Expendables 2, two for The Possession, three for Twilight). That leads all movie studios for 2012; overall, »
