Hey, I ain't just conjuring up these numbers.
It's tempting to do a gag about this being an unexpected sleeper hit, but I think I'll just dump this into your lap without the jokes: #1 in the nation, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 1, $125 million. Expect more from Part 2, coming out in about 6 months. Ain't many folk being fired at Warner Brothers this year!
Also opening this week, Russell Crowe vehicle The Next Three Days, which came in at #5 with only $6 million. What's it about? Hell I can't even remember the title and it's right in front of me.
