Brad Pitt’s ‘Killing Me Softly’ dies at box office, ‘Twilight’ wins again

Even Brad Pitt cannot energize sluggish post-Thanksgiving moviegoers with his latest film, “Killing Me Softly,” which opened at #6 tied with “Wreck-It Ralph.” The finale of the Sci-Fi teen vampire series, ” The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” landed at the top spot again this weekend with $17.4 million.

The “Twlight” conclusion now topped $250 million in the US, #1 for all three weeks of its release. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and company edged out James Bond. “Skyfall,” the 23rd film for the franchise, finished 2nd with $17 million, now just below $250 million in US box office receipts.

Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” and the animated “Rise of the Guardians” rounded out the top 5 with Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi.” The Oscar worthy  Abraham Lincoln bio will certainly surpass the $100 million, now resting at $83.7 million in US box office receipts.

“Killing Me Softly” opening poorly at $7 million is only highlighted by the even worst debut of “The Collection,” which just made it in the tenth spot with $3.41 million. Pitt’s mob drama now the horror thriller could muster much of an audience it their first weeks.

This week is a quiet pause, with no major releases scheduled, and then “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” will open on December 14, 2012.
