 “It’s an extraordinarily strong opening, and my sense is it will generally play well for many weeks,” said Paul Sweeney, a media analyst for Bloomberg Industries said. “Hollywood has really been focusing the last several years on franchises. Once Hollywood finds a formula that’s working, they play it as aggressively as they can."

Directed by Bill Condon,  "Breaking Dawn Part 1" stars Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart.
