'Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2' is running away with the US Thanksgiving box-office quicker than a turkey who's worked out what an oven is for, after taking an estimated $12.8m on Wednesday.

This could mean that over the extended five day weekend it could take an incredible $65 million over the five-day weekend figures according to CinemaBlend.com.

Movies traditionally open on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving rather than the usual Friday.

James Bond was still holding his own however, with 'Skyfall' earning $7.3m on Wednesday, which could see it hit $50m over the whole 5-day period. In his native UK, 007's latest outing looks set to become the biggest movie of all time, surpassing James Cameron's 'Avatar'.

'Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2' did slightly worse than previous 'Saga' movie 'New Moon' on its opening weekend but has now made a very respectable $175.5m in total, meaning it's probably about to pass Bond's $178m.

Hitting the charts but not replacing the two mammoth franchises were DreamWorks Animation’s 3-D Christmas movie 'Rise of the Guardians' which brought in $4.9 million Wednesday  and Steven Spielberg's Oscar contender 'Lincoln' is currently in fourth with $4.2 million.

'Rise of the Guardians' will surely expect a holiday season bump, while hype continues to grow around Spielberg's Civil War epic.

Chris Hemsworth's new movie 'Red Dawn' in fifth, also on $4.2m.
