Thursday’s 10 p.m. showing of “Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ brought in $30.4 million

“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ took in $30.4 million during late-night showing’s Thursday and the midnight showings.

On Saturday, the film was just a bit short of making the $72.7 million that it generated the first day for “New Moon” and the $71.6 million generated with “Breaking Dawn – Part 1.”

The “Twilight” franchise has brought in over $1.1 billion in North America alone and more than $2.5 billion worldwide since 2008.

Melissa Anderson, The Village Voice:

“This motley lot — the women bloodsuckers all seem to resemble lip-augmented Tampa trophy wives; the men, hollow-cheeked consumptives who look like VIPs at the clubs ‘SNL”s Stefon frequents — are given ample time to explain and demonstrate their special powers. It’s about as exciting as watching David Blaine play Stratego.”

Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com:

“On the plus side, this is likely the last ‘Twilight’ offering for the foreseeable future, until the inevitable ‘Jacob and Renesmee: It’s Baby Love!’ spinoff emerges.”
