Your weekend box office:

1. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 - $139.5 million--the fifth highest opening weekend of all time, just behind The Twilight Saga: New Moon. So yeah, these Twilight things are still pretty popular.

2. Happy Feet Two - $22 million, opening to barely half the numbers of its Happy Feet predecessor. It's time to take a serious look at the business of using the word "feet" in the title of anything.

3. Immortals - $12.3 million, ceding the top spot to a strong competitor in the gratuitously shirtless dude genre.

4. Jack and Jill - $12 million. With such middling numbers, we'll probably never get the all-Sandler family reunion sequel we deserve. Unless... Kickstarter?

5. Puss in Boots - $10.7 million, bringing the total gross to over $120 million. Not that such pitiful dollar amounts mean a thing to star Antonio Banderas. He's basking in the enduring spray Nasonex money.
