It was soo good I think it should be that top! One thing I didn’t like though was that it said it was IMAX 3D but only 13 minutes of it was 3D and only in the begining.

Hate to say it guys, but it looks to me like you Americans are suckers for films with robots bashing each other! Looks like HP won’t be over-taking Transformers 2 any time soon. It makes me wonder whats going on in your heads sometimes!

$255.5 million WOW!!
That’s still a heck of a lot of money …. I mean even if it’s not first in the rating thingy it’s still something to be proud of. And I don’t think that Warner Bros are exactly short on money! It is still a great film, and I think ‘normal’ people will be enjoying it! :D

It made about half of what it made last week. I went and saw it in IMAX, it was pretty rad, but I wanted more 3D action. Next week GI Joe comes out so I guess HBP will be coming in second, again. I think they should continue with TV spots, so people don’t forget about it. Then again, it was a slow week for the movies seeing how Funny People didn’t even make $25 million. Let’s wish it does better next week so Warner Bros. can give us two kick butt DH movies.
