- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
- Love and Other Drugs
- Due Date
- The Next Three Days
- Morning Glory
No surprises this weekend. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Tangled take up the top two spots on the list with a combined total of almost $100M. I believe that those two movies could occupy the number one and two spots for a couple more weeks. There are some good movies coming up before the end of the year so check back on Tuesday’s for that weeks box office openings.
Megamind drops one to number three making the second and third spots all about family entertainment.
Burlesque opens at number four and with all that talent, I’m not surprised. Whether you like Cher or not, you can’t deny that she has achieved a lot in her lifetime. As an actress she has an Oscar and a Golden Globe and as a singer she has a few number one hits. Add Christina Aguilera to the mix and its got to be entertaining.
Unstoppable is the big action movie on the list (other than Harry Potter) pulling in almost $12M in its third weekend in the theatres. Love and Other Drugs did $10M and I think that over the next few weeks it should pick up a little momentum as the Thanksgiving family time ends and date night comes back leading up to the next big holiday.
Faster came in at number seven doing only $8.5M this past weekend. I am a little surprised as the trailer has been very popular in the video section.
Due Date is still drawing comedy fans to the theatres as it breaks the $85M mark on its way to $100M. Robert Downey, Jr. and Zach Galifianakis are great on screen together and manage to create a chemistry that will more than likely translate into big rental and sales numbers. Rounding out this weeks list are the thriller/drama The Next Three Days and romantic comedy Morning Glory.
