In yesterday's program, we looked at some of the biggest films of 2011. Today, we continue our look back with another two big hits: "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" and "Kung Fu Panda 2."

Fans flocked to cinema in 2011 to see the latest instalment of the "Twilight" franchise, "Breaking Dawn - Part 1." The film was hated by critics, but fans were undeterred - shelling out half a billion dollars in the film's first 3 weeks.

So far, the first four "Twilight" films have earned over two billion dollars in box office receipts. The film's two main starts talked about filming the latest episode.

Robert Pattinson said, "For years and years everyone was like 'So, it's about abstinence. What are your views on abstinence?' And this one is the one where they have sex."

Kristen Stewart said, "Yeah, I was like God we have to be sexy!"

Robert Pattinson said, "And we were just like kissing in the sea, and then had cocktails as the sun came up and stuff. And it was like wow, why aren't there more scenes like this in 'Twilight'? This is amazing!"

Another hit in 2011 was "Kung Fu Panda 2."

The animated flick saw Jack Black, Angelina Jolie and Dustin Hoffman reprise their roles as high kicking panda Po, Master Tigress and Master Shifu.
