This week was a lot closer then I think many had expected. Sure Harry Potter was #1 again but Disney was not far off with Tangled doing way better than expected. Besides those two teams the rest of the box office was pretty much a let down for studios. Films with a lot of attention placed on them failed to pull people away from the two family films. Burlesque, Love and Other Drugs and Faster all kind of made “meh” amounts of money. To me this is actually a bad sign since the second and third spot went to two animated films that are backed up by 3D. One could say the 3D extra charge helped a lot of these movies up the amount of money they made. It will be interesting to see what will happen the next couple of weeks. The only movie coming out next week is the Warrior’s Way which I highly will dominate the box office. That means a lot of these other films have time to grow some legs. So will see how word of mouth might some of these movies at the bottom maybe make a push. The one thing that should also be noted is that Deathly Hallows Part 1 has made 220 million dollars so far, that is before the x-mas holiday… Holy @$%#.
