THE Twilight finale has continued to dominate the North American box office, topping the chart for a third week, early figures suggest. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 took $17.4m, bringing its domestic total to $254.6m. James Bond film Skyfall was just behind with $17m in its fourth week of release. Steven Spielberg’s historical drama Lincoln, starring Daniel Day Lewis, remained at three with $13.5m. The film, which features the Oscar winner as the 16th US president, also stars Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones and Joseph Gordon Levitt. In an unchanged top five, animated film Rise of the Guardians and Ang Lee’s Life of Pi filled the fourth and fifth spots. Brad Pitt’s latest film, Killing Them Softly, failed to make an impact on the chart, taking just $7m domestically and entering the chart at number seven. Adapted from George V Higgins’s novel Cogan’s Trade, the small-budget film stars Pitt as a hitman brought in by mafia bosses to eliminate a group of thieves who raid a high-stakes poker game. Although rated fairly highly with critics, the film was panned by cinemagoers who rated it with an F grade with audience survey film CinemaScore. –BBCThis news was published in The Nation newspaper.
