Last Twilight film breaks SA record


The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 broke box office records this weekend when it earned R10.9m in its opening three days, making it the biggest three-day opening of all time in South Africa by 36%. It also goes down in the record books as the biggest box-office at cinemas for Friday and Saturday, with more than 275,000 movie goers seeing the film in its first three days at local cinemas.

Previous instalments of the franchise, Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and Eclipse, both had massive openings and achieved over R11m and R11.7m respectively with their releases, but for a five day period.

In The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Bella (Kristen Stewart) awakens transformed – she is now a mother and finally… a vampire. While her husband Edward (Robert Pattinson) delights in her beauty, speed, and uncommon self-control, newborn Bella has never felt more alive; and the destiny of her best friend Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) has become entwined in that of their exceptional daughter Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy). The arrival of a creature so rare cements an extended family, but will soon ignite forces that threaten to destroy them all.

The second of a two-part adaptation, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is directed by Bill Condon from a screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg, based on the novel Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is now playing at cinemas everywhere.
