Tag: BOX OFFICE
Hollywood, and everyone else for that matter, was crazy for Harry as the latest installment of the "Harry Potter" series conjured up over $125 million in its opening weekend, well ahead of second place "Megamind." The only other new film in theaters, Russell Crowe's "The Next Three Days," barely cracked the weekend's top five.
"Megamind" conquered the box office for the second straight week, outpacing Denzel Washington's runaway train, CGI aliens, and even Indiana Jones. Among new films for the weekend, "Unstoppable" had a strong opening, while "Morning Glory" and "Skyline" failed to impress audiences.
The combination of Will Ferrell and CGI superheroes was more than Iron Man could handle, as "Megamind" conquered Robert Downey Jr.'s "Due Date" at the box office for the weekend ending November 7, 2010. The animated flick from Dreamworks bowed to an opening of nearly $50 million.
