The highly-anticipated conclusion to The Twilight Saga opened in theaters last night, and domestically the film pulled in an impressive total at the midnight box office.

Breaking Dawn – Part 2 earned $30.4 million, besting Breaking Dawn – Part 1′s $30.2 million it made this week one year ago. It is a record for the five-film series.

Last night’s total was not enough to defeat the current record holder Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. The final film in the Potter series made an astounding $43.5 million at the midnight box office. The Dark Knight Rises, the third film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, continues to hold the number two spot with $30.6 million.

Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is projected to gross over $140 million domestically this weekend, and we’ll be sure to share the final total once it arrives.

How many times will you see Breaking Dawn – Part 2 this weekend?

The Twilight Saga midnight box office totals:
- Twilight: $7 million
- New Moon: $26.3 million
- Eclipse: $30 million
- Breaking Dawn – Part 1: $30.2 million
- Breaking Dawn – Part 2: $30.4 million

We’re eager to hear your thoughts on the final film in the Saga. In our review, we said it “caters to the fans and delivers. You get shirtless Jacob, you get plenty of intimacy between Edward and Bella, and you also get some fun scenes with the Cullens and Charlie. We believe that Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is the best of the series and will leave the audience holding back tears until the very last scene.”

“The memories of this saga will indeed live on forever because Condon, Rosenberg, and Meyer worked up a great multi-part ending,” we concluded.

Fans aren’t the only ones who enjoyed the film; critics regard it as one of the better films of The Twilight Saga. You can read our review here.

Hypable feature: As of this weekend, Bella, Edward, and Jacob’s stories will come to a close. See how far they’ve come from the first movie with our graphics detailing their journey!

    i love the random Alice Cullen article pic, she had a significant role in this one. And definitely Ashley Greene’s best portrayal of Alice so far.

    Harry Potter, always winning! But I think it’s really interesting that each of the movies respectively brought in $30 mill each at midnight. Impressive that they were able to keep the same number of fans coming in each film.

    I thought that breaking dawn part 1 and 2 were waaayy better than both of the deathly hallows movies.

      I disagree. While I haven’t seen the second installment of BD yet…. (I made plans to see it next weekend with friends) I didn’t really like the first one. I think that’s because I’m not much of a romance girl though. TBH, it’s the only Twilight film I don’t own on Blu-Ray yet for that sole reason. However, the second one does look a lot better…. but I don’t think I will enjoy it as much as DH. As it is for me right now…. DH1>>>>>>>DH2>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>BD1.

      I couldn’t even sit through BD part I. Then again, I’m not a fan of Twilight so I am sooo bias when it comes to this regard. But, critic review taken into account…there is no competition

    I read the title too quickly and thought it outsold DH and yelled at the screen. Then reread it. Luckily.

    Cool for the Twilight fans! Hope they enjoyed the ending as much as we enjoyed seeing DH2 last year :)
