This past Friday marked the opening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1. While it didn't do quite as well as The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which opened to $142.8 million, the Breaking Dawn, Part 1 opening wasn't exactly shabby. In fact, it was the fifth largest opening in U.S. history and the 10th largest worldwide!

The flick, which brought in $283.5 million worldwide, didn't disappoint Summit president of distribution Richie Fay. "We faced the weekend with some trepidation because you don't really know on a fourth installment whether you are going to maintain the interest of your audience," Richie says. "[But] the numbers seem to speak for themselves."
