Weekend Report, November 19, 2012

Whether you're devastated or overjoyed that the final Twlight film has at last opened, the moment has indeed come. Breaking Dawn Part 2's staggering $141M three-day take, while still a million or so off from the franchise record, was enough to put Lionsgate over the $1B mark for the year. And hey, tweens, guess what? There are other books out there besides The Hunger Games and Twilight! Take, for example, Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln. Her historical study served as source material for Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, which also impressed in its debut this past weekend. This film definitely has fewer first kisses and vampire wars (yes, this is the Abraham Lincoln film without vampires), but is worth checking out nonetheless.
