With $290 million in revenues, it was a record Thanksgiving weekend.

In a surprise twist, Ang Lee’s awards contender Life of Pi overperformed in its opening to nearly match Rise of the Guardians, posting a three-day gross of $22 million and a five-day take of $30.2 million for 20th Century Fox.

Holdovers were particularly potent over the long holiday, with Summit Entertainment’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 and MGM/Sony’s Skyfall both jumping the $200 million mark domestically.
