New in Theaters November 16: Lincoln, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

View Chris Kavan's Profile

Last week Skyfall delivered a huge boost to the box office. It seems after a longer-than-average four-year wait, audiences were more than happy to welcome 007 back to the big screen. This week, a movie that made some big waves in limited debut opens nationwide and a franchise that's a big hit with tweens, teens and, yes, even many adults, finally comes to end and all signs point to a monster opening. With these three movies coming together, I have a feeling we're looking at another huge weekend.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN - PART 2 I admit that I'm no Twihard - in fact, I've only watched the first film in the series (grudgingly) and didn't bother with the rest. But if Twilight presale ticket results are any indication, fans are going to give a huge sendoff to this series. A lot has been made of Kristin Stewart's love life - but that also hasn't affected ticket sales. In fact, much like Skyfall, Breaking Dawn - Part 2 has started by breaking international records before it's U.S. debut. Whether you're a really big fan who is going to attend a marathon of all the films or just ready to wish a fond farewell to your favorite shiny vampires (sorry - couldn't end without throwing that out there) - I have a feeling this is going to easily dethrone 007 and win the weekend.

LINCOLN Last weekend Lincoln opened in limited release in just 11 theaters and still managed to 15th place $944,308, for a per-theater average of a whopping $85,846. Now, huge limited openings don't always translate to wide audience acceptance, but considering this is Steven Spielberg directing, and Daniel Day-Lewis earning raves as playing Lincoln, I have a feeling this will be a decent hit - especially with older audiences. While the younger generation has Bond and Twilight, adults will gravitate towards this film. I have a feeling it won't be able to top Bond, but it should still have a good numbers and with the Oscars inching ever closer, it should enjoy a decent run up to the awards. I know it's the film opening this weekend I'm most looking forward to watching.

With two huge films opening, and another that should have a great second weekend, the box office should easily top the numbers from last year. The question remains just how big those numbers will be. Stay tuned until Sunday when we'll find out.
