It’s no surprise that The Twilight Saga will finish with a bang at the box office.  With screenings that began at 10:00pm Thursday to the early morning, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 raked in $30.4 million.  While this isn’t the biggest opening night for the series (Eclipse garnered $30 million from midnight screenings alone), the film is reportedly on track to gross $150 million over the weekend, according to the L.A. Times.  This would give Breaking Dawn – Part 2 the largest weekend opening of the franchise.  We’ll be back with you on Sunday to see how the numbers turned out on this pre-Thanksgiving weekend.
