‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’: what are the expectations?

It’s almost here!

On Friday, the final book in “The Twilight Saga” is set to come to the big screen — or at least the first part of it is. So what are the expectations from a box office standpoint? It ultimately depends on who you talk to.

According to the studio Summit Entertainment, projects are that the Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson film is set to likely gross about $125 million in its first weekend. However, some other studios seem to think that Summit is low-balling this claim, and the movie could end up grossing as much as $142 million.

No matter how well this movie does, there is one other factor that is set to make this a strong weekend — “Happy Feet 2.” When you also consider the arrival of “The Muppets” next week, this could ultimately be one of the most successful months we have seen at the box office in quite a while.

How much do you think “Breaking Dawn” will gross this weekend?
