'Twilight' Feasts On Thanksgiving Box Office

There's only one thing that Americans enjoy more than turkey, and that's stuffing themselves into movie theaters on Thanksgiving, as according to Film.com, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" helped power the highest grossing five-day weekend in film history.

And "Breaking Dawn's" $64 million was just part of the story, as "Skyfall" ($51 million) and "Lincoln" ($34.1 million) both raked in the cash as well, allowing those three films to finish 1-2-3 at the box office for the second weekend in a row.

For a full run down on the box office for the extended Thanksgiving holiday weekend, including figures for new releases "Life of Pi," "Rise of the Guardians" and "Red Dawn," head to Film.com.
