On its twelfth day of release, Summit Entertainment’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 crossed the $500-million mark at the worldwide box office. That brings to $2.3 billion the total earnings for the four Twilight movies thus far. A fifth Twilight movie (part two of Breaking Dawn) is due to conclude the franchise’s tale next year, and forecasters are predicting it could leave the amounts for the other movies in the dust. Breaking Dawn has now earned $508 million worldwide with $233.36 million attributed to domestic ticket sales. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the success of this film and a franchise that the fans have continued to support over the past several years,” Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger, co-chairmen of Summit Entertainment, said in a statement on Tuesday.
