While it wasn't quite able to reach the series high mark, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1's outstanding estimated $139.5 million opening indicated that the sexy teen vampires are as popular as ever. Breaking Dawn's $139.5 million opening is second-best among Twilight movies behind 2009's New Moon ($142.7 million).

That's a small gap, though, and Breaking Dawn still managed to claim fifth place on the all-time opening weekend chart behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 3 and New Moon.

Kristen Stewart wore a stunning blue J. Mendel gown for this evening's premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 1 at the Nokia Theater in LA. She stopped to chat on her way into the screening, and revealed that while she imagined her Twilight wedding "a million times" she never actually looked down to see what she thought the dress would look like.
She was relieved to see the gorgeous, but still mysterious, dress Carolina Herrera designed just for Bella Swan. As for saying farewell to Bella, Kristen feels like she already has, but she will always have the memories.

Breaking Dawn lead actor Robert Pattinson who reprises his role as the vampire Edward Cullen recently shared how he handled some of the difficult scenes, how these momentous scenes challenged him and how does he sees himself beyond the Twilight saga
