Glad Transformers is still rocking it, im sure it will continue to rock it too.

Super glad Horrible Bosses did some good business, an over 30 mil opening for a non sequel all original comedy is pretty solid and I have a feeling word of mouth will carry this one in a similar fashion to Bridesmaids.

Really sucks about Cars 2. That's the steepest decline in Pixar history. They really fucked up. But Brave looks like it'll make everything better again and restore balance to Pixar's legacy!
Seems like a pretty solid lot of July movies due out still. I blame the recession for the decline. People are hurting still. Prices keep going up at the theater. $11.00 for a small popcorn and soda (both were mediums when I was younger, but the price is $6). I saw some guy and his hot ass wife taking 3 girls to see Cars 2. He spend $50 at the concesssion stand. Holy Crap!

Harry Potter will really eat into TF3 grosses next week by taking away 3D screens.

Yep. Co-sign me on that one: Really happy to see Horrible Bosses doing so well. I saw it last night in a sold out theater, and everyone was laughing their asses off and having a good time. WOM will definitely carry this one far, and it should showcase similar legs to Bridesmaids, which has pretty much finished its run by now.

Also, I'm glad to see Zookeeper underperformed. God, what an abomination. It's insulting that movie even exists. I can't believe people fall for this shit. In fact, figuring in the critical failure that was Cars 2 and the other abomination that is Mr. Popper's Penguins, it seems that we've had a pretty crappy summer for children so far. And with The Smurfs waiting for us at the other end of it... it's not looking too good in the future, either.

Horrible Bosses does look good, i'm not surprised it performed well, who knows how well it can hold up, i couldn't guess but i don't see Bridesmaids holds, that's very rare.

Oh yeah BM is finally out of the top ten, hopefully, when the final numbers for the weekend are tallied. I know it doesn't matter, it's a huge hit, and i still don't know why.

Glad to see T3 holding up well, now that's a film i can stand behind, it's terrific, hope it breaks 400 mil domestic eventually but that may be impossible . It has already passed 500 mil worldwide, cool.

I wouldn't call Zookeeper a bomb, that depends on the budget and how well it holds up, it does look dreadful though.

Smurfs should still do excellent despite some recent kiddie flick disappointments, i see that one doing what the Chipmunks did. It's got the nostalgia factor going for it and wiseass cgi creations, it's going to be a hit.


Dreading the Potter finale, just glad i won't be forced to watch it, i loathe that series with a passion. I'm sure it will bank 1 bil WW though

Wow. So happy for Horrible Bosses! Glad this movie is connecting with people - it's really, REALLY hilarious; a great comedy. Bridesmaids legs will be difficult, but I can see it holding out for a few more weekends while Harry Potter eats up the rest of the competition.

Harry Potter is has two weekends. No legs beyond that. Just like Twilight. I can see other films having some legs after those two weekends

Holy. Fucking. SHIT. I knew this movie would be huge. And breaking the midnight box office records was a big start. But $92 million in ONE DAY?!?! wow. Even if Friday turns out to be more than half of the weekend gross, this film is still pretty much guaranteed to break The Dark Knight's opening weekend record. Crossing $1 Billion worldwide also pretty much seems like a guarantee at this point. Even if this is the most front-loaded film of all time, it will still make an insane amount of money. This is incredible. It's not just beating records; it's SHATTERING them!

That's fucking insane. While it will be front-loaded, I think it will have some decent legs. WOM is terrific and it's the last of the series. People don't want to let go of this series, so fans will probably check it out more than once.

92 million! WOW! That is crazy. I guess I can't wait until the first $100 million in one day movie. I wanted to see this Friday night, but my wife talked me out of it with sex. I hate it when she makes me choose. I don't know why, but I like to know I was part of records like this. I must try to see it Sun night to get in on the weekend record.

I'm sure TDKR will be the film that makes 100 mil in one day.

These records don't hold for very long anymore

Not that it makes too much of a difference but the 92 mil included midnight showings, minus the midnight haul, Dark Knight still has the single day record according to bomojo

So take that you poor man's Lord of the Rings, i still hate this series.

I know what you're going to say, HP7 will beat out DK for the weekend record, and it's obvious it will now but we will have to wait until TDKR comes next year to put the boy putz back in his place

$168 million for Harry Potter. That's almost double what the first movie did on opening weekend, which, at the time, was an astonishing opening weekend record.

Insane.

I guess it's good news 3d tallied an est 43% of the gross, because I guess that's not great considering how many 3d locations were open. Because I don't like 3d at all.

I already wear glasses, man. Somebody has to think about the poor people with glasses.

Potter did over 18 mil on monday! That is pretty intense, i know its summer, but still, a non holiday monday pulling in 18 mil is impressive. I thought this movie would be super front loaded, but it seems that because it is the end, and the fact that this is officially the LAST time you can see Harry Potter on the big screen is bringing in repeat business.

I've never seen any of the Potter movies, but for the first time, I actually feel like I'm missing out! (I Plan on sitting and watching the movies one day, just haven't gotten to it yet)

Second place, although it could be a fight. Cap will have to make 70 million or more to even attempt to overtake Potter. Which I suppose could happen.

I don't see Captain America getting anywhere near $70 mil or beating Harry this weekend. Maybe it is just me, but after all the promos and ads, I feel no buzz at all for this movie. I am thinking Green Lantern type final numbers at best.

Despite the numbers, I can see Harry Potter not beating out Transformers for the year either. Harry has no legs at all and I think this movie will be even worse. This weekend will tell the tale.

Harry Potter $55
Captain America $45

I could not believe both Cap America and Harry Potter.

Harry had like the 21st highest ever 2nd weekend and the 43rd worst drop from first to second weekend. Cool. I do not expect the 3rd weekend to barely crack $15 mil. Still might not beat TF3 for the summer or year

If there's any justice, the Autobots will beat out the boy wizard, which i think will happen.HP will probably beat it internationally though but i'll take a domestic win. No matter both of these films are headed to 1 billion worldwide, and that's pretty insane to have two movies released in the same month do that. T3 made 50 mil in China over the weekend, those are numbers you would only see in NA, wow. A billion plus WW is becoming commonplace now.

Err, i don't know why you are surprised at Cap's numbers, the film had better buzz than GL and the character is more popular, plus the trailers got people excited, not like GL, most people said that film looked horrible after seeing the trailer. Cap just may break 200 mil, it's at 72 mil already

Is Captain America really a failure? I thought it was doing quite well?

Rise of the Planet Of The Apes did over 19 mil on friday, reviews are strong, i was on the fence about the movie, but positive reviews are making me really want to see it.

On the flip side, The Change Up tanked, only 4 mil on Friday, with majorly negative reviews, and where as if a movie gets positive reviews, it amps me up to see it, if a movie i want to see gets negative reviews, it doesn't deter me from wanting to see it, so i will still be checking out Change Up at some point!
