The finale of the Twilight series, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 made $141.3 million in the U.S. and $340.9 million worldwide its opening weekend.

It has landed eighth on the list of largest of all-time domestic debuts, along with two other films in the series, according to the Daily Beast.

Twilight is a female-driven franchise. Even though women made up 79 percent of the opening-weekend audience, the finale drew the series' biggest male crowds, according to Fox News.
