(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).
