Well those sold-out showings at midnight certainly proved popular: Variety is reporting that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was a huge hit, "taking in as much as $20 million when opening at 12:01 a.m. Wedneday at the domestic B.O., according to early estimates.That
figure beats the $18 million earned in midnight runs by Warners’ very
own “The Dark Knight” and the $17 million earned by 20th Century Fox’s
“Star Wars: Episode III —Revenge of the Sith.” UPDATE: The AP reports WB has announced the actual total is 22.2 Million. Wow!
this movie was so good,
despite the fact that they changed a whole lot, it’s my favorite to date.
i’m so happy i saw it at midnight.
This was the 4th HP film I’ve viewed at the midnight release. This is also the only HP film that I don’t like. The movie was so excruiatingly boring, that when Dumbledore died I didn’t even care, I just wanted to leave – which is how the director must have felt because the ending just didn’t stick. There were good parts, like Katie Bell’s curse, but the good parts had more to do with visual effects and not acting or story. Bravo to Rupert Grint and the actor who plays Malfoy- they were amazing.
It was so AWESOME!! Seeing all the fans there!! So many people were dressed up and there was a funny moment when we were all waiting in the theater when someone dressed as a golden snitch came running in and all these people dressed up in uniforms got on their broomsticks and started chasing it around the auditorium. lmao. That was great! HP fans are the BEST!
my mom said that transformers got more. BOO!!!
