Breaking Dawn breaks bank with $72 million dollars on opening day

Breaking dawn should have been called breaking bank, because it's a goldmine. The new installment of the Twilight saga managed to top box office charts making more than puss in boots and immortals put together on debut weekends. This show has a massive following and it was no surprise that it would have delivered on the day, like Bella's baby. It also raked in $283.5 million worldwide for the weekend.

Breaking dawn is now ranking with the "big boys" like Harry Potter, its Twilight predecessor and Transformers 3 in Box office records.
