"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" is still a big hit in cinemas, keeping "The Muppets" off the top of the box office for another week.
"The Muppets" were expected to take over the top spot on Sunday, but a weekend surge from "Twilight" fans kept the sequel at number one with ticket sales of $16.9 million.
In 17 days since its release in the U.S., the film has grossed an impressive $247.3 million domestically.
"The Muppets" came in second with $11.2 million.
Martin Scorsese's 3D family film "Hugo" grossed $7.6 million to take third place and animated festive movie "Arthur Christmas" came in fourth.
