'Twilight,’ Bond, 'Lincoln’ lead record Thanksgiving weekend at box office

(Continued)

LOS ANGELES —

The weekend’s overall strength came from a broad range of films that clicked with various audiences, from action and family fare to thoughtful drama.

“This is a marketplace that has something for everyone,” said Chris Aronson, head of distribution for 20th Century Fox. “You have something deeper like ‘Life of Pi,’ yet you have a very successful sequel in ‘Twilight’ at the same time. Adult bio-drama, if you will, in ‘Lincoln,’ and you have Bond. That’s the secret to a very successful and balanced marketplace.”
