The latest film of teen vampires and werewolves franchise “Twilight Saga” has grossed a total of 508 million U.S. dollars in ticket sales from global box office since it was screened 12 days ago, producer and distributor Summit Entertainment said Tuesday.

“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” has also reached a milestone in North America, taking in 223 million dollars in selling ticket stubs in theaters in the United States and Canada, according to the studio.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the success of this film and a franchise that the fans have continued to support over the past several years,” the company’s Co-Chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger said in a statement.

The film has topped the foreign box office for a second-straight weekend with 76 million dollars in receipts from 68 markets, according to latest statistics.

Industry analysts said as the penultimate film of the popular series, “Breaking Dawn” was expected to take in about 650 million dollars from the global box office and Summit Entertainment would reap 228 million dollars in profit.
