The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 held on to the Number 1 spot at the Box Office throughout the five day Thanksgiving holiday weekend, easily staving off all new-comers. The return of The Muppets to the big screen bowed at Number 2, but still pulled in an impressive $42 million over the holiday. Martin Scorsese's Hugo only reached the Number 5 spot, but it did not have as wide of a release and will expand into more theaters this coming weekend.
