Vampires over Muppets over penguins at weekend box office

Too bad for our favorite felt-covered friends that the vampire-werewolf movie came out the same weekend. I'm not sure if "The Muppets" will be able to beat "Breaking Dawn" for the No. 1 spot - though the former will likely have more staying power in the coming weeks.

From The Associated Press:
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
1. “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1,” $42 million ($71.5 million international). (Review by The News-Herald's Mark Meszoros)
2. “The Muppets,” $29.5 million ($1.6 million international). (Review by Meszoros; Q&A with Kermit the Frog by The AP's Derrik J. Lang)
3. “Happy Feet Two,” $13.4 million ($10 million international). (Review by The AP's David Germain)

6. “Jack and Jill,” $10.3 million. (Review by The AP's Jake Coyle)
7. “Immortals,” $8.8 million ($8 million international). ("You can see the next Man of Steel in theaters now swinging a sword in 'Immortals'" by Lang)
