LOS ANGELES (AP) —
LOS ANGELES - "The Muppets" are no match for the vampires
of "The Twilight Saga."
The latest Twilight movie, "Breaking Dawn - Part 1," stays number-one for a second weekend.
It takes in more than 62 million dollars over the five day Thanksgiving period.
The Muppets movie opens in second with 42 mil. "Happy Feet Two" is number-three.
"Arthur Christmas" opens in fourth, followed by "Hugo."
Some industry insiders had predicted this could be a record Thanksgiving for Hollywood.
But the holiday box office take falls far short of $273 million record set just two years ago.
Studio executives concede it's harder to get people into theaters-- when they have so many entertainment options at home.
