<em>The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2</em> earns $30.4 million from midnight screenings Fans of those sparkly, red-eyed vampires came out in droves last night to watch The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, to the tune of $30.4 million. The tally is just slightly higher than The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1's $30.25 million midnight gross last year.

The franchise finale opened in more than 3,000 theaters last night, before opening even wider today in 4,070 theaters. The theater count is significantly down from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse's record of 4,468. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 grossed $138.1 million in its opening weekend, but with the midnight gross just slightly higher, it remains to be seen if this vampire finale can top its predecessor.

Stay tuned throughout the weekend for more updates on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2's box office numbers.
