'Breaking Dawn' passes $500 million mark

It’s not quite a surprise, but the latest "Twilight" movie’s box office take is impressive nonetheless: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part I” has raked in more than $508 million worldwide, the BBC reports.

According to the film’s distributor, Summit Entertainment, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are drawing considerable crowds.

Out of the worldwide gross, $223 million was made in North American movie theaters, and “Breaking Dawn - Part 1” is the top movie in the UK and the US after its second week in theaters.

The first three movies in the "Twilight" series have earned more than $1.8 billion at the worldwide box office, and the first part of “Breaking Dawn” is on track to push that collective total up considerably. And there’s still one more "Twilight" movie to go! The fifth (and final) film in the vampire love saga is due out next year.

“Breaking Dawn” took only 12 days to cross the $500 million mark, but it’s not the fastest film to achieve that feat. July release “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” set a new record a film to make $500 million, having pulled it off in six days.

    Was drug into see this film with my other half. This film like its other installments pretty much fell flat. Its not really what the hype says it is. I vote for the last installment to include Kate Bekinsale, Hugh Jackman and Westley Snipes to show folks how suck-heads and werewolves need to be dispatched. They use lots of silver! "The head or the heart anyhting else and its your a...!"

    I wonder what would happen to the Twilight franchise if these two real life lovers actually break up... now that would cause some awkward tension between scenes...
