After months of pent-up demand led Eclipse, the latest installment of the Twilight franchise, to a record Wednesday opening, the film slowed its pace throughout the weekend but still landed on top of the box office with a hefty $162 million five-day take. While impressive, the figure registers on the lower end of expectations, and ranks about $3 million lower than the previous Twilight flick. Finishing in the second spot is director M. Night Shyamalan’s latest thriller, The Last Airbender, which overcame fiercely negative reviews to score a middling $40 million debut. One notch below, Pixar’s family hit Toy Story 3 crossed the $300 million mark and is expected to slip past Finding Nemo as the studio’s highest-grossing film.
