    @thedude1 Yeah true, but to me, although the estimates are interesting to look at, they just seem like made up numbers that anyone could report with and don't feel like the real weekend earnings. I need to see the factual numbers to be satisfied. :) Those are just my issues though.

    Twilight ended up winning the weekend over Skyfall by just over $860,000. That was a swing of more than $400,000.

    @bawnian-dexeus I guess that's a good point. You don't see many Twilight fans going to see films like Adventureland (or being fans of Panic Room) just because of Kristen Stewart, but you will see them lining up for films such as Snow White and The Huntsman and the like.

    @thedude-abides Given our differences in taste and movies, I'll be less forgiving, or surprise the hell out of myself and bomb it

    @thedude-abides Ah well. I brought it up because my dad brought it up and he made a good point. Truly, it will always depend on the content. You could be the biggest fan of Pitt, Depp, Hanks, etc.., but you won't always go to all their movies. Kind of how Tatum and Patinson have been successful with their separate movies. They bring in the sales because of the content they work on.

    @gumperman Most of the time the numbers are so far apart that we already know who won the weekend on Sunday. However this past weekend was different. Skyfall is within $410,000 of Twilight. Actual numbers changed that much almost every week. But I guess we will have to wait about three more hours to find out who truly won.

    @thedude1 Thank you! I'm glad I'm not the only one who believes in the actual numbers and that thinks they need to re-title their articles to reflect that these are are just estimates. BOX OFFICE BEAT DOWN ESTIMATES wouldn't be so hard or adding what you suggested, BOX OFFICE BEAT DOWN ESTIMATES: Too Close To Call, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 May Have Won Again with possibly $17.4 Million. Okay, maybe that is too long of a title? Haha!

    @bawnian-dexeus Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I'm guessing it has a lot to do with the subject matter as well.

    @thedude-abides Amazing how PItt's star power isn't enough to fule an independent movie

    I thought Life of Pi would have a stronger showing because it's been getting such good word of mouth. Oh well, it will hold strong through awards season, I expect.

    This is not over yet. Tomorrow the actual numbers are released and twilight could easily fall to number two. The title of this article should have been "To Close to Call".

    whew, thank God for this turnout
    Anna Karenina was so droll and uninteresting, I was falling asleep fast and I walked out of the theater after the middle, I couldn't take it anymore
    The Collection was a hell of a lot more exciting and Breaking Dawn: Part 2!
    I'm very happy Breaking Dawn: Part 2 is still doing well

    Either way, loosing by 400 is nothing compared to the worldwide tally

    @ghostman If it does, then it will be the one Bond in history to most likely hold that score until a better sequel dethrones it

    @ghostman I really have no idea. I don't place much stock in box office numbers.

    @thedude-abides It's reaching 900 million worldwide. Do you think it will hit one billion soon?
