LOS ANGELES -- The "Twilight" finale and "Skyfall continue to dominate the box office on a typically slow post-Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
Sunday studio estimates put "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" ahead for the third-straight weekend with $17.4 million domestically.
That raises the vampire tale's domestic total to $254.6 million.
But the James Bond adventure "Skyfall" was a fraction behind with $17 million over its fourth weekend, lifting its domestic cash haul to $246 million.
The two movies were close enough that rankings could flip-flop when final numbers are released Monday.
Worldwide, the "Twilight" finale has taken in $702.4 million, just $10 million shy of the franchise's record.
"Skyfall" already is the top-grossing Bond flick ever, approaching $900 million worldwide.
Brad Pitt's crime story "Killing Them Softly" tanked with a $7 million debut.
