HARRY STILL TOPS


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I helped the overall box office explode from last weekend. In fact, it earned more than all films last weekend combined, propelling the box office to a 60% week-over-week increase. Unfortunately, the rest of the box office was on the weak side, and the total of $194 million was 25% lower than the same weekend last year. Ouch. 2010 is still ahead of 2009 at $9.36 billion to $9.14 billion, but that lead isn't safe given the sharp drop-off we just suffered. Hopefully we will get back on the winning track soon. Even single-digit loses will ensure 2010 sets another box office record.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I's opening weekend was exactly in the middle of the range of expectations with $125.02 million. Not only was this the largest weekend opening in the franchise, it was also the second best opening weekend of November and the second best day in November. For full story>>

  1. 'The King's Speech', a Brit flick through & through, (produced by Gareth Unwin) pipped Harry to the post in three US theaters this week. A small start maybe, but a 'small film' also.
    Feel like supporting a truly British endeavor? Forget Harry, go witness a little bit of 'why we are how we are', or just watch Colin Firth spitting all over Geoffrey Rush.
