Two days into the five-day Thankgiving holiday weekend, a pair of $100-million-plus wide releases opened on Wednesday, but both failed to make it into the top three, as holdovers "Breaking Dawn Part 2," "Skyfall," and "Lincoln" led the field. But overall business is strong - the top ten films grossed more than a third better than last year ($81 million from $60 million in 2011).
