How much money did Breaking Dawn bring to Brazil?

Ask any teenager how much being "as well stay less than 20 feet from your favorite vampire?" is worth. The common answer is "priceless." For Rio, take the famous character Edward Cullen - Robert Pattinson's role in Twilight series - dancing around on the roads cost $ 500,000. This was the value that RioFilme, company linked to the city, invested in the production of the movie Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (the fourth of series), from the American studio Summit.

But the council got back $ 3 million. The amount was spent by the U.S. team for scenes of honeymoon couple's big stars, a handsome vampire and human Bella (played by Kristen Stewart), in the Lapa neighborhood and in an isolated island in the region of Paraty. Balance: $ 2.5 million.

The article goes on to talk about the Fast and the Furious 5 that is spending 2 million in Rio. The article also says to close one street in Rio takes 50 meetings and 2 production teams to get through all the red tape. So filming that scene in Lapa took lots of engineering to close down one street for 12 hours. Usually street scenes in Rio are in the slums, they are happy that Breaking Dawn, even though is will only be on screen for minutes, will be shown in Paraty and Lapa. The street scene created 300 jobs in the Brazilian film industry.

Another way the film made the country money was lodging. The Copacabana Palace has received the two teams in their apartments ($ 1,000 per day) and presidential suites (daily R $ 4,600), earning at least $ 500,000 to the hotel in ten days.

Wonder if Robert and Kristen were in a Presidential suite??

Be thankful Summit can make the money back, and it keeps the studio in the black. Look what happened to MGM - home of the James Bond series. It went bankrupt, and Bond was put on indefinite hold. Now they're trying to reorganize.

That's a pittance if you think that Rob, Kristen and Taylor are receiving a rumoured $25m each for the films!

What I don't get is what did Taylor ever do to earn this $25m???The whole franchise last this long all because Kristen and Rob worked realy hard to make the most-beloved fictional couple in recent history believable. And yet he can earn just as much by adding muscles and six packs onto his stomach?

@Sabrina Liao: Personally, I was more impressed by Taylor's acting then I have been by Kristen's or Rob's, although its a marked improvement from the first movie. Its strange, but there is more romantic tension between Taylor and Kristen at times then there is between her and Rob. I realize that people keep making comments about the muscles and the six pack, but I am sure they don't realize that its all a part of the story. According to the book, he towers at 7 feet or so by Eclipse, covers the entire view of the window in Kristen's room in New Moon because he is so large, and purposely wears as little clothes as possible because he keeps destroying them and because he has to wear them tied around his leg when he shifts. Of course, I am the Jacob Black fan here, but he brought the role to life, he made Jacob fun spirited and alive. Edward is the best male role in the series but he was able to make people say "wow, she should stay with Jacob" - couldn't have been easy when you are up against the perfect guy and, in a way, definitely a shot at Edwards talent as an actor. I'm just trying to look at it objectively here...
