”The Twilight Saga: Breakind Dawn” opens this weekend (Nov. 18), and everyone else is either scared to go up against the uber-popular vampire-romance, or else they’re saving their good stuff for next week’s full slate of Thanksgiving-week releases. Whatever the case, only one other wide-release movie dares to go up against in this week:
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, in ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1.’
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1
