U.S. television celebrity Kim Kardashian brought out screaming fans, angry Muslim hard-liners and police throwing stun grenades on Saturday (December 1) when she visited Bahrain to launch a milkshake franchise, witnesses said. About 100 demonstrated with banners outside store and tried to block the visit over what they called her "bad reputation", according to a local newspaper. Thousands of fans, who had paid up to 1,360 dollars (USD) a ticket, broke into hysterical screams as the 32-year-old celebrity launched the Millions of Milkshakes franchise inside the mall. The "Twilight" teen vampire movie shined again at U.S. and Canadian box offices, earning another 17.4 million and its third consecutive No. 1 ranking. "Twilight" finale "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" finished just ahead of "Skyfall," the 23rd film in the Bond franchise about British superspy 007. "Skyfall" rang up sales of $17 million domestically from Friday through Sunday. Steven Spielberg's historical drama "Lincoln" starring Daniel Day-Lewis took third place for the weekend with 13.5 million. While, Brad Pitt's new movie, small-budget gangster film "Killing Them Softly," grossed 7 million and landed in seventh place.
