Los Angeles - The latest Twilight movie still cast the longest shadow with $16.9m for a third-straight No 1 finish, during one of the year's slowest weekends at the box office.
Business was dismal, with box-office tracker Hollywood.com estimating on Sunday that domestic revenues totalled just $82m. That puts it barely ahead of Hollywood's worst haul of the year, when revenues were $81.5m over the second weekend in September.
Summit Entertainment's blockbuster The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 raised its domestic haul to $247.3m.
Coming in second again was Disney's The Muppets with $11.2m, lifting the family film's domestic total to $56.1m.
With no new wide releases opening after the busy Thanksgiving weekend, ticket sales nosedived, with other holdover films managing so-so revenues.
