Starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 topped the North American box office for the 20th consecutive day on Wednesday, Dec. 7. Breaking Dawn was barely above the $1 million-per-day mark, taking in $1.06 million, but that was enough to bring its grand domestic total up to $250.45 million, according to Box Office Mojo.

For comparison’s sake: Chris Weisz’s The Twilight Saga: New Moon passed the $250 million mark on Day 16 in early December 2009. David Slade’s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse passed $250 million also on Day 16 in mid-July 2010. Catherine Hardwicke’s Twilight cumed at $192.76 million in early 2009.

Now, on the positive side Breaking Dawn has been losing steam at a slower pace than New Moon, which fell below the $1m-per-day mark (inflation adjusted) on Day 20. Unless Thursday (Dec. 8) turns out to be an unusually slow day, that should happen to Breaking Dawn only on Day 25 — next Monday. Comparisons to Eclipse would be unfair, as the third Twilight movie came out in the summer, when teenagers/young adults were out of school or college. Eclipse’s first dipped below the $1m-per-day mark on Day 34.

I should add that probably sometime yesterday, Breaking Dawn passed the $600m mark worldwide. It’ll likely surpass — or at least get very close to — the $700m mark.

Directed by Bill Condon, and adapted by Melissa Rosenberg from Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling novel, in addition to Robert Pattinson as the vampire Edward Cullen, Kristen Stewart as the (for the time being) human Bella Swan, and Taylor Lautner as the werewolf Jacob Black, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 also features Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Dakota Fanning, MyAnna Buring, Booboo Stewart, and Michael Sheen.

Plus Maggie Grace, Lee Pace, Sarah Clarke, Anna Kendrick, Christian Serratos, Christopher Heyerdahl, Michael Welch, Christian Camargo, Julia Jones, Gil Birmingham, Kiowa Gordon, Billy Burke, Bronson Pelletier, Charlie Bewley, Tyson Houseman, Daniel Cudmore, Jamie Campbell Bower, Casey LaBow, Mia Maestro, and Alex Meraz.
