'Twilight' tied to 'Skyfall' atop weekend box office
New York, December 3 (ANI): The 'Twilight' finale and 'Skyfall' continued to dominate the box office on a typically slow post-Thanksgiving weekend that brought big business for holdover films but a poor start for Brad Pitt's new crime story.
According to Sunday studio, estimates put 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2' out front for the third-straight weekend with 17.4 million dollars domestically.
This raised the domestic total to 254.6 million dollars for the vampire tale released by Lionsgate banner Summit Entertainment, the New York Post reported.
Sony's James Bond adventure 'Skyfall' was a fraction behind with 17 million dollars domestically, raising revenue to 246 million dollars after four weekends.
Pitt's 'Killing Them Softly', the weekend's top new release, tanked with just 7 million dollars domestically, coming in at number seven behind a big batch of holdovers.
The weekend's other new wide release, LD Entertainment's horror tale 'The Collection' also flopped at number 10 with 3.4 million dollars, averaging 2,430 dollars in 1,403 theatres.
The top 10 movies at the weekend box office were:
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 - 17.4 million dollars

Lincoln - 13.51 million dollars
