"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" continues to dominate the box office, coming out on top for the third straight weekend.

The "Twilight" finale has brought in an estimated $17.4 million domestically, raising the domestic total to $254.6 million for the vampire tale released by Lionsgate banner Summit Entertainment.

The movie added $48.4 million overseas for an international haul of $447.8 million and a worldwide sum of $702.4 million, approaching the franchise record of $710 million for last year's "Breaking Dawn - Part 2."

The film also brought in $34 million overseas to put its international take at $623 million and the worldwide total at $869 million, the best cash haul ever for a Bond flick.

"Killing Them Softly," starring Brad Pitt, tanked with just $7 million domestically, despite being the weekend's top new release.
