Breaking Dawn Holds of Thanksgiving Newcomers

Yup, the fourth in the Twilight franchise managed to take in $42 million over the weekend, easily reclaiming the top spot at the box office. While, The Muppets took in a nice $29.5 million, which may go a long way since it has strong word of mouth.

As for Arthur Christmas ($12.7 million) and Hugo ($11.4), they had to settle for 4th and 5th, as they were beaten by Happy Feet Two ($13.4 million). Arthur Christmas may have a hard time making it's money back, as it reportedly cost $100 million, but a Christmas family movie release just in time for the Christmas season may have some legs. As for Hugo, time will tell, as it only debuted in a limited amount of theaters, but did reported cost $170 million to make.
