Despite all the wonderful buzz around The Muppets, it couldn't trump the box office behemoth that is the Twilight saga, which stayed on top on the charts this week, taking in another $42 million (in its second week), bringing its cume to a whopping $221+ million. Throw in the $152+ million it's made overseas, and Breaking Dawn Part 1 has grossed over $374 million across the globe... and I still haven't seen a single installment from the uber-successfull franchise; Not a single minute; I just can't bring myself to watch any of them, even for free. But my dollars obviously aren't having any effect; this is one of the highest grossing franchises in film history.
