LOS ANGELES (AP) — The sun has set on the “Twilight” franchise with one last blockbuster opening for the supernatural romance.

“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2″ sucked up $141.3 million domestically over opening weekend and $199.6 million more overseas for a worldwide debut of $340.9 million.

The finale ranks eighth on the list of all-time domestic debuts, and leaves “Twilight” with three of the top-10 openings, joining 2009’s “New Moon” (No. 7 with $142.8 million) and last year’s “Breaking Dawn — Part 1″ (No. 9 with $138.1 million).

Last May’s “The Avengers” is No. 1 with $207.4 million. “Batman” is the only other franchise with more than one top-10 opening: last July’s “The Dark Knight Rises” (No. 3 with $160.9 million) and 2008’s “The Dark Knight” (No. 4 with $158.4 million).
