Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart/BREAKING DAWN $600 Million

Starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 either has already passed or is about to pass – sometime today, at the latest – the $600 million mark worldwide. [Check out the full-size Robert Pattinson / Kristen Stewart honeymoon in Rio photo.]

According to Box Office Mojo, the Bill Condon-directed Breaking Dawn had collected an estimated $344.8 million internationally as of December 4, in addition to $249.38 million in the United States and Canada as of Dec. 6 for a grand total of $594.18 million. In North America alone, Breaking Dawn added another $1.31 million on Tuesday; last weekend, the latest Twilight movie added $40.4 million internationally (vs. $15.36 million in the U.S. and Canada).

For comparison's sake, both Chris Weitz' The Twilight Saga: New Moon, though substantially ahead of Breaking Dawn in the (currently depressed) domestic market, and David Slade's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse reached the $600 million mark on their fourth weekend out. For Breaking Dawn, that would be next Friday-Sunday.

Breaking Dawn vs. previous Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart pairings

Now, does that mean Breaking Dawn is selling more tickets abroad than New Moon and Eclipse did back in late 2009 and mid-2010, respectively? That's hard to tell. Even discounting inflation, currency fluctuations can drastically affect the box office take of a movie overseas when local currencies are converted to US dollars. (See James Cameron's AVATAR vs. TITANIC: International Box Office.) But considering that the U.S. dollar is now stronger in many territories than it was, say, a year or two ago, chances are that Breaking Dawn is indeed selling more tickets. In other words, since the U.S. dollar is stronger, that means euros, pesos, etc. earned abroad buy fewer U.S. dollars. Even so, in the international market Breaking Dawn is currently ahead of both New Moon and Eclipse.

The Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart wedding (on screen, that is) may have failed to land the top spot in France for a single weekend – The Intouchables remains unbeatable – but Stewart and Pattinson's (and Taylor Lautner's) latest did top three weekends in a row in Brazil and Australia, and has topped two weekends in Germany and Mexico, among other countries. If things continue as they've been, Breaking Dawn should be able to reach the $700 million mark worldwide. New Moon cumed at $709m; Eclipse at $698m.

Adapted by Melissa Rosenberg from Stephenie Meyer's bestselling novel, in addition to Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, 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.
