‘Breaking Dawn’ wins Thanksgiving day box office: Which film will you see this holiday weekend? (Poll)

Will you spend the holiday with the Muppets? (Patrick Wymore - AP/Disney)
To no one’s surprise, “Breaking Dawn” earned the most moola at the Thanksgiving day box office, grossing $7.8 million on Thursday alone.

This brings the latest “Twilight” film’s U.S. total to $179.3 million.

The Jason Segel-led “The Muppets” earned $5.9 million, according to Variety , followed by “Hugo” ($2.3 million) and “Happy Feet Two” ($2.1 million).

Of the new films in wide release this Thanksgiving weekend, which one will you drag your family and friends to? Perhaps you’ll choose a slightly older film, like the completely terrible “Jack and Jill” or “Tower Heist.” Or — if you're able to — will you opt for a film in limited release, like “The Descendants” or “Melancholia”? Vote in our poll and tell us in the comments.
