“This will be the biggest Twilight movie ever at the box office and the foreign grosses will be the driving force,” Boxoffice.com’s Phil Contrino toldThe Wrap.

He added,

“These franchise films build and build overseas, and then they explode.”

Post Thanksgiving, Summit’s finale installment maintained its ascendancy at the top of the box office tree for the third consecutive week thanks to stunning overseas ticket sales.

After debuting with $141,067,634 in its opening weekend, the last film in the wildly successful vampire franchise went on to break all kinds of records around the world.

In international terms, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 took $447.8 million after just 17 days.

Box Office Voodooreports:

“By day 14, the second Twilight feature was on $239.9M while BD 1 had just hit $230M – in comparison, this final film had a gross of $237.1M.”

“On Friday, the finale to the Twilight series added $5.6M … through Saturday and into Sunday, it made another $11.8M, bringing its three day total to $17.4M ($256M overall).”

That’s the best overseas performance of any of the installments, as evidenced by the fact that Part 2 shot past Breaking Dawn – Part 1’s $430 million international haul in the last few days.

Specifically, Breaking Dawn – Part 2’s best box office overseas was in the UK ($ 50 million), then Brazil ($41. 6 million) and Russia (CIS, $41.2 million).

But the broad strokes are these: International box office for Part 2 is $447.8 million, domestic rose to $254.6 million, and its worldwide take swells to $702.4 million.
