Breaking Dawn Kills Brad Pitt, Rules Box Office Once Again

by at . Comments

Not even Brad Pitt can slow down The Twilight Saga. At least not when he's starring in an awful, awful movie.

Indeed, Breaking Dawn Part 2 reigned supreme at the box office for the third consecutive weekend, raking in $17.4 million and lifting its domestic total to $254.6 million.

That's nearly $10 million more than the first Breaking Dawn installment had garnered at this stage in its run, while the conclusion to the franchise is on pace for a record $800 million around the globe.

Pitt, meanwhile, flopped tremendously with Killing Me Softly, which took in a mere $7 million, earning an overall F from audience member who voted in CinemaScore. OUCH!

Despite Killing Them Softly's lack of critical success, you seem to be implying that by sheer box-office numbers alone, Breaking Dawn Part 2 is a better film. Killing Them Softly is not an "awful, awful film"; granted, it's nowhere near Dominik's previous effort, but it still stands well above any of the latest blockbuster smashes. People need to stop ripping on Brad Pitt---his performance is excellent.
