LOS ANGELES (AP) – No dimming yet for “Twilight.” The “Twilight Saga” finale stays number-one this weekend by a razor-thin margin. It takes in more than $17 million and is closing in on the 256 million mark. The latest James Bond adventure “Skyfall” is a very close second this weekend. So close — the rankings could flip-flop when the final box office numbers are released today. But Brad Pitt’s latest is off to a slow start. “Killing Me Softly” is dying in theaters. It manages just a seventh place opening this weekend, behind a bunch holdover movies.
