It shouldn’t be any surprise that “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” had a killer midnight showing at the box office, but these numbers are ridiculous!

According to initial reports, the fifth and final installment of the franchise nabbed $30.4 in ticket sales between the 10:00pm Thursday and Midnight screenings in North America.

Given the great totals, speculation is rampant that “Breaking Dawn Part 2” will score a $150 million opening weekend purse, with some insiders putting the figure closer to $158 million.

“New Moon” holds the “Twilight” record for opening weekend sales at $142 million, and “Eclipse” has the highest overall take at $300 million.
