By Paul Dergarabedian, President of Hollywood.com Box Office

Sorry James Bond. Vampires and werewolves are the declared winners of this weekend's box office race. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 has come out on top, scoring $141.3 million its first weekend at the box office. This may not come as a shocker, though, as the final Twilight film brought in an impressive $162.2 million at the global box office on its opening day. And in the United States, it earned $71.2 million (that includes $30.4 million for all Thursday shows starting at 10 PM and midnight shows).

Second in the race, we find Daniel Craig's James Bond flick Skyfall, raking in $41.5 million in its second week. That's a total of $161.337 million to date. Skyfall has also earned about $39 million in IMAX theaters globally. This weekend, Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond adventure, also become the best-performing film of all time in the longest-running film franchise in motion picture history, with a global cume of $669.2 million and passing the $599.2 million worldwide total taken in by Casino Royale in 2006.

Lincoln comes in third in its first wide expansion into theaters and second week in theaters with $21 million.
