Another Brazilian Box-Office Record Broken: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart BREAKING DAWN PART 2

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Breaking Dawn Part 2 TwilightRobert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Breaking Dawn Part 2 breaks opening-weekend box office record in Brazil

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart star in Breaking Dawn Part 2, the fifth and final installment in the immensely popular Twilight Saga movie franchise. True, Breaking Dawn Part 2, which also stars Taylor Lautner, may have failed to (truly) break box office records — even Twilight box office records — in North America, but in Brazil, one of the movie series’ biggest markets, it’s a different story.

In four days, approximately 3.1 million tickets — 2.1 million from Friday to Sunday — were sold at 1,213 Brazilian venues. That’s a historical record in that country, easily surpassing the previous record holder, last year’s Breaking Dawn Part 1, which sold 1.79 million tickets (Fri-Sun). Note: Thursday, Nov. 15, was a Brazilian national holiday, but that doesn’t make Breaking Dawn Part 2’s figures any less impressive.

Distributed by Paris Filmes, Breaking Dawn Part 2 collected R$37 million over the four-day period, or US$17.58 million (as per Box Office Mojo; down from Summit’s reported $19 million estimate). That’s the Twilight movie’s fifth biggest weekend box office gross after the U.S. and Canada ($141.06 million), the UK (est. $24.4 million), Russia / CIS (est. $20.3 million), and France ($17.88m). Note: Considering that average movie-ticket prices in Brazil are lower than in France or the UK (and possibly in Russia), chances are that more tickets were sold in Brazil than in the European countries.

Brazil: Three Twilight, Spider-Man movies among top ten opening weekends

For comparison’s sake, the other movies on Brazil’s top-ten opening-weekend chart — in tickets sales, the only accurate way of measuring a movie’s popularity — are the following: Sam Raimi / Tobey Maguire / Kirsten Dunst’s Spider-Man 3, with 1.71m; Joss Whedon / Chris Hemsworth / Chris EvansThe Avengers, with 1.68m; David Yates / Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, with 1.56m; and Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner’s second Twilight movie, New Moon, with 1.41m.

Also: Spider-Man 2, with $1.36m; José Padilha’s Elite Squad: The Enemy Within / Tropa de Elite 2, the only Brazilian movie on the chart, with 1.3m; Spider-Man, with 1.29m; and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, with 1.25m.

Clearly, the Twilight Saga and the Spider-Man movies have been quite popular with Brazilian moviegoers; both have three movies among the top ten opening weekends. Just as clearly, the Twilight movies are more popular — at least with opening-weekend moviegoers — as no less than two are among Brazil’s top five. (Note: Eclipse opened on a Wednesday, selling 600,000 tickets; in all likelihood, that’s why it’s not included among Brazil’s top ten opening weekends. The third Twilight movie had two days to blow off steam.)

Breaking Dawn Part 2 to sell more tickets than The Avengers?

After four days, Breaking Dawn Part 2 is already the eighth biggest hit at the Brazilian box-office. By next Monday, the Bill Condon-directed mix of romance, fantasy, and adventure will likely be either no. 5 — ahead of Christopher Nolan / Christian Bale’s The Dark Knight Rises — or no. 6, right behind the Batman movie. Before the end of the year, Breaking Dawn Part 2 could become the biggest 2012 hit at the Brazilian box office in number of tickets sold. However, in terms of box office grosses, it’ll likely trail 3D releases The Avengers ($63.9m) and Ice Age: Continental Drift ($46.5m).

Paris Filmes was at first expecting the final Twilight movie to sell 10m tickets, or about 3 million more than Breaking Dawn Part 1. It’s unclear whether that figure has been revised. Brazil’s current box office record holder is James Cameron’s blockbuster Titanic. Starring doomed lovers Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, Titanic sold 17 million tickets back in 1998.

I should add that Breaking Dawn Part 1 finished its Brazilian run with $35.04 million, behind only two 3D-surcharge-boosted movies: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 ($35.69m) and Rio ($42.94m).

Breaking Dawn Part 2 cast

Besides the eternal trio Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, the long, long roster of Breaking Dawn Part 2 cast members includes Michael Sheen, Peter Facinelli, Nikki Reed, Mia Maestro, Christian Camargo, Rami Malek, Omar Metwally, Lee Pace, Casey LaBow, Angela Sarafyan, Masami Kosaka, Lisa Howard, Erik Odom, John Edward Lee, Patrick Brennan, Toni Trucks, and Joe Anderson.

4 Comments to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart BREAKING DAWN PART 2 Shatters Another Brazilian Box-Office Record

  1. patrice

    It was really interesting to learn about the Brazilian Box Office. I’m so proud of Twilight. It may have not broken midnight or weekend domestic sales but the bottom line is the total global box office. I think BD 2 will break that record.

    dont worry @just me, I agree with you

  4. just me

    i don’t care about box-office anymore. Twilight made a history, our century wouldn’t be complete without it as it wouldn’t be the same without Harry Potter.. as silly as it may sound. it’s real people’s choice, whoever disagrees has to deal with it:)
