‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1′ releases to theaters

Last year, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse set a record by opening to nearly 4,500 screens across the country on opening weekend.

That record will remain intact for a while longer because The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 opened to 4,061 theaters this weekend, per Box Office Mojo.

That figure will still put Breaking Dawn – Part 1‘s release thirty-second on the list of all-time widest releases, but it’ll be the third-widest Twilight Saga release.

Here are the theater numbers for each of the Saga films to-date:

  • Twilight3,419
  • The Twilight Saga: New Moon4,024
  • The Twilight Saga: Eclipse4,468
  • The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 14,061

We’re talking about a matter of a couple of hundred theaters of variation between Eclipse and Breaking Dawn – Part 1, which amounts to roughly 8 theaters less per state.

But according to Variety, the midnight opening release took place at 3,250 theaters across the U.S.
