The "Twilight" teen vampire movie shined again at US and Canadian box offices, earning USD 17.4 million and its third consecutive No. 1 ranking as James Bond held strong and Brad Pitt's new movie struggled.


"Twilight" finale "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" finished just ahead of "Skyfall," the 23rd film in the Bond franchise about British superspy 007. "Skyfall" rang up sales of USD 17 million domestically from Friday through Sunday.


"Breaking Dawn - Part 2" has pulled in USD 254.6 million since its release while "Skyfall" has grossed USD 246 million, putting both among the top films of the year.

Steven Spielberg's historical drama "Lincoln" starring Daniel Day-Lewis took third place for the weekend with USD 13.5 million. Brad Pitt's new movie, small-budget gangster film "Killing Them Softly," grossed USD 7 million and landed in seventh place.
