In the News
i saw it about 6 times in theaters, mostly because my mother would always say i’ll pay for you and a friend to go to the movies and HBP was the only one we wanted to see :) lol
That’s alright that Transformer beat us. They are two separate categories, I was just hoping to beat Twilight, because that’s our category of Fantasy Films. But that list was pretty accurate, I got the same list in my paper. The best films of ’09!
Where are you guys seeing that we “lost” to New Moon? Yes they had a monster opening weekend, but if you compare where HBP was after 38 days to where New Moon is now, we’re actually a good $7 million ahead of them.
I’m glad Harry Potter is still so popular, although I do wish it would have come out at #1! :o)
Yayy! I was extremely excited when I read this because HP beat Twilight! I’m kinda sad Transformers grabbed the top spot, because that movie wasn’t the greatest. It lacked in several important ares, but I digress. Good job for Harry Potter! That’s quite a bit of money :)
lol. Harry Potter fans DO dominate the world. :D
good job HBP. Deathly Hallows part 1 win dominate
in 2010, part 2 in 2011.
I am just excited HBP beat New Moon. Transformers was ok, minimal plot, lots of action. I totally agree that the “religious folk” who think HP is demonic have something to do with HP not doing as well in the US.
Transformer was a fun mindless blow ‘em up film while HBP was fun in a complete opposite way. I enjoyed both movies, but only watched Transformer once while I watched HBP several times. So it’s great that both movies are in the top two at the box office.
I lose faith in America today when something like “Transformers 2” beats out Harry Potter. But still, HBP deserved top spot in the world this year!
