Vampire movie bites at box office

Vampire movie Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 continued to lure huge audiences, taking $12.8 million (£8m) at Wednesday showings in what could fuel a record box-office haul for the five-day US Thanksgiving holiday.

The final Twilight film took $141.3m last weekend for the industry's eighth-largest opening weekend.

On Wednesday, it combined with the James Bond film Skyfall to lead a slate of films that generated $44.3m in total US and Canadian ticket sales for the day, according to unofficial data from Hollywood.com's box-office division.
