Breaking Dawn Part 2The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 broke box office records on Friday but Twilight addicts will be forced to wait a year until their next fix! The final movie in the Twilight saga, Breaking Dawn – Part 2, won’t hit theaters on Nov. 16, 2012!

Are you kidding me? The Twilight Saga movies are like crack for millions of Twilight fans!¬† The news that we’ll have to wait an entire year for Twilight drug is a major blow! Does Summit Entertainment really think it’s a good idea to make millions of young and middle-aged women wait 12 months before we get our last dose of Edward, Jacob and whats-her-name?

For those of you who are not Twilight-obsessed, the second Breaking Dawn film tells the story Bella and Edward and their half-vampire, half-human daughter who is also the soulmate of Jacob Black. It sounds creepy, I know. Life for Bella Swan Cullen as a vampire is peachy until the evil Volturi vampires come after her baby.

Summit Entertainment is trying to let the Twi-Hards down easy. The stars of Breaking Dawn – Part 1 were on Ellen dishing up bit of the Twilight drug for fans about Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

Twilight Saga Continues to Be Box Office Gold
Estimates put the Friday numbers for the second-to-last entry in the series at $138 million around the world, as Breaking Dawn rolled out in 54 global markets. According to MTV News:

“Midnight showings helped propel The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 past The Dark Knight, Transformers, and most of the Harry Potter movies in the all-time opening-day box-office record books. Breaking Dawn – Part 1 enjoyed the third-highest opening day ever with a projected $72 million in domestic receipts, according to studio estimates.”

Make fun of the Twilight Fans (go ahead, everyone does) but the love triangle of a vampire, a werewolf and a girl is a money machine for Summit Entertainment:

-The first Twilight movie raked in $392 million worldwide.
-The second film, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, grossed more than $709 million worldwide in 2009.
-Last year’s The Twilight Saga: Eclipse cleaned up a cool $698 million.

Here’s a clip about Breaking Dawn – Part 1 with the stars dishing about the latest Twi-Hard addiction!
