For those keeping score at home, the weekend box office totals are in for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Variety reports the film was second this week (behind "Funny People") and took in "$17.7 million at 4,393" venues, making a 19 day total of "$255.5 million.The weekend take included $3.2 million from 166 Imax venues," where Half-Blood Prince opened with the big screen showings this week.
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.
