Box Office Report: 'Breaking Dawn,' 'Skyfall' And 'Lincoln' Lead Record Thanksgiving
Moviegoers stuffed themselves on a diverse buffet of movies at the Thanksgiving box office, with overall revenues ringing in it at a record $290 million for the Wednesday through Sunday stretch, easily surpassing the $270.5 collected in 2009.
But not every film benefitted from the holiday. New entry Rise of the Guardians posted a five-day opening of $32.6 million, the lowest debut for a DreamWorks Animation title in recent memory. The weekend take was $24 million.
