‘Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn 2’ Tracking Like Monster Hit: Maybe Biggest Of Them All

EXCLUSIVE: The final installment of the 5-film Twilight Saga just came on tracking today. And my sources say Breaking Dawn Part 2 which opens Robert Pattinson Kristen Stewart Breaking Dawn Part 2 Box OfficeNovember 16th is comping at Part 1‘s record-breaking levels. Plus advance ticket sales are running 16% ahead as well. Summit Entertainment like most studios uses several tracking services, and I’ve learned that Part 2‘s unaided is equal or ahead of Part 1 — so that make it higher than any of the other Twilight pics. Awareness also is the highest and, in fact, already in the 90s for females. Not only is Breaking Dawn Part 2 tracking better than any other film already or about to open in the domestic box office before mid-November, but it’s even better than James Bond — 72 awareness for Skyfall vs 88 for Breaking Dawn Part 2. (Skyfall opens November 9th.) Naturally, Summit, now part of Lionsgate, is hoping the finale grosses more than Part 1‘s $138.1M opening weekend and breaks even more records. It should — especially because of the on-again, off-again, now on-again real-life relationship between Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson. (Were those Summit execs born under a lucky star or what? The pair reunited just in time for all the worldwide promotion like personal appearances and press tours. And the studio denies their reunion is a publicity stunt. “They’re kids. They break up. They get back together. They’re good,” one exec assures me.)
