New York, Nov 17 (ANI): The final installment in the 'Twilight' series, 'Breaking Dawn Part 2,' proved only mildly successful and took in 30.4 million dollars on Thursday night and midnight showings in North America.

Midnight grosses for the film came in higher than those for the previous 'Twilight' films, but were still lower than midnight grosses for 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,' which totaled 43.5 million dollars in July 2011, and 'The Dark Knight Rises,' which totaled 30.64 million dollars in July 2012, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The next highest midnight grosses were all 'Twilight' films: 'Breaking Dawn Part 1' totaled 30.25 million dollars in November 2011; 'Eclipse' totaled 30 million dollars in June 2010; and 'New Moon' totaled 26.27 million dollars in November 2009.

The movie has so far drawn a mixed response from critics, with a 52 percent rating on the Rotten Tomatoes movie aggregation site.

Paul Dergarabedian, president of the box-office division of Hollywood.com. said the finale 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2' had the biggest debut of that franchise, calling it an "event film" that also ended the 'Harry Potter' era.

"This final Twilight installment should benefit from the same distinction and as such I am still confident that it can still post the biggest weekend debut for the franchise eclipsing the 142.8 million dollars that 'New Moon' earned in its first weekend back in 2009," he said. (ANI)
