harrypotter.jpgThe post to follow can be summed up in one sentence: "Holy crap - that Harry Potter movie made over a hundred mil this weekend."

With only the mildest Thursday-night-at-midnight head start, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire blew away the box office competition this weekend, earning $101.4 million - roughly 4.5 times the gross of the number two film, James Mangold's Johnny Cash biopic, Walk the Line. Its $22.4 million isn't exactly a disappointment – that's the kind of number that most frame-topping films have been raking in for the past few months – but the whole add-up certaily makes you wonder where that $100 million worth of ticket buyers are when there are no teen wizars flicks in the cinemas. Elsewhere in the top ten: the 50 Cent movie is dieing, Pride and Prejudice is thriving, and big stars like Jennifer Aniston, Jake Gyllenhaal and Catherin Zeta-Jones are watching their films tank.  Jump with us for the exact numbers.
