Just got back from seeing it in I-max. I’m glad to say that I have supported it 3x’s with money though I have seen it 4x’s.

Thank goodness G-Force still isn’t in first. I would have expected HBP to make a lot more due to the movie opening in IMAX… oh well, we still have two more movies to go!

We went to see it again today, didn’t get there till right before the movie started because we thought it wouldn’t be busy but boy were we wrong! The theater was packed! I was surprised because we went opening weekend and it wasn’t half full but today, people were sitting all the way up to the front. Can’t wait to see the numbers for this weekend.

It was excellent in IMAX, even though it was only the first 13 minutes in 3D. I’m surprised, I really would have thought they would have made the last part with the cave scene, inferi and firestorm in 3D, now that would have been rad. I hope the battle of hogwarts is in 3D for DH2.

IMAX was awesome! I too wished there was more 3D. Quidditch and the cave scene would’ve been cool in 3D. I’m kind of disappointed HBP wasn’t #1 this week though. I’m afraid delaying the IMAX release wasn’t a good thing for the #s.

Hey Leaky, please give us the international numbers, too. Have just come home with my family of four after seeing it for the 3rd time! Still noticed new details – excellent!

I haven’t seen any advertising for HBP since it opened originally— not a single tv ad for the IMAX opening or anything. They need to ramp up their ad campaign if they want to get back to first! Oh well though, it’s doing great and they’re already making a profit, so I’m sure they can’t complain.
