Twilight Movie has generated more than $2.5 billion in worldwide revenue.With The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 continuing its blockbuster run in theaters around the world -- $647.3 million in grosses and counting -- Rosenberg has become the highest-grossing female screenwriter in Hollywood, with more than $2.56 billion in worldwide revenue.
(On the male side, Harry Potter serieswriter Steve Kloves is the leader with approximately $6.8 billion in worldwide grosses; The Amazing Spider-Man, which he co-wrote, opens in July. James Cameron also has generated more than $6 billion in worldwide grosses as a writer.)
As with most measurements of this type, there are a few asterisks. A longtime Disney collaborator, Woolverton contributed material to the studio’s animated Mulan, as well, which grossed $304.3 million in 1998. She did not receive screenplay credit, however, so that figure is not included in her total. There is also the issue of factoring in inflation, which would have a great effect on some of Woolverton’s earlier films -- Lion King (1994) and Beauty and the Beast (1991) -- to the tune of some $800 million more in adjusted grosses.
