Twilight, Bond, Lincoln lead record box office weekend

CREATED Nov. 25, 2012
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Bella Swan, James Bond and Abe Lincoln have combined to lift Hollywood to record Thanksgiving revenue at the box office.
 
Kristen Stewart's finale as Bella in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" was No. 1 again with $64 million during the five-day holiday stretch that began Wednesday.
 
Daniel Craig's Bond adventure "Skyfall" came in at No. 2 with $51 million, while Daniel Day-Lewis and Steven Spielberg's Civil War saga "Lincoln" finished third with $34.1 million.
 
According to box-office tracker Hollywood.com, the three films paced Hollywood to an all-time Thanksgiving week best of about $290 million from Wednesday to Sunday.
 
That tops the previous record of $273 million over Thanksgiving in 2009, when "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" led the weekend.
