Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will easily win the weekend with a with an estimated $79 million at the box office,  giving it an impressive five-day total of $149 million.  Nothing to sneeze at. (Though some suggest actuals will be much lower.)  But this is far behind Transformer 2’s haul of $201.2 million or The Dark Knight’s $203.8 million.

Still … for a sixth film in a series this kind of business is jaw-dropping.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (or HP6 for lazy typists) had an impressive Wednesday take, snagging $58 million in its midweek opening.  This is less than Transformers 2’s $62 million.  But will it be able to chocolate leap-frog it’s way ahead of  T2’S five day haul?  Only muggles doubt it.  With it’s PG rating and even stronger family appeal,  HP6 has a real shot at landing the biggest five-day total of the year.

Critters, Rocks and Sounds: GR Week in Review

Ghosts

This last week was a busy one at the blog.  Full of fun, cool, and informative stories.  We’ll take you through that excitement one more time.

It began with a report on some bouncy critters, a hairy critter, and some awards for creating critters.

We then moved onto Italian sorcerers, Japanese robots, an Australian actor and three nightmares on Elm Street.

Then it was onto rocks on the moon, a rockin’ creature, a Night tease, and a special year.

Then we were offered treats from a festival, rings at an amusement park, wonder at the movies, and freebies from the BBC.

From there we heard sound in a library, silence in space, laughter in Germany, the sound of thunder from Australia, and the pop of fireworks.

We saw the rise of new technology, the return of strange visitors, an award winner trying horror,  an actor going to the fringe,  a cat comes back,  and snow falls under red skies.

A somewhat slow week at GR.  But here’s a quick overview:

We looked at all the uses of sci-fi gadget, another sci-fi gadget that’s becoming a reality,  and a famous actor who’s known for playing a character fond of sci-fi gadgets.

We examined some water on a distant moon, saw a famous mystery solved by a space vehicle which cannot reach even a local moon,  and a movie with box office headed to the moon.

We heard of a star-filled movie headed for blu-ray, a star-shaped UFO over Brazil, and a no-stars movie review.

Box Office: TRANSFORMERS 2 Poised to Take Down DARK KNIGHT

Robots smash each other and audiences flock to watch.  Even the robot above smashed through a wall to get a peak.

From Deadline Hollywood Daily:

SATURDAY AM: Paramount’s Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen is looking like it took in $36.7M tonight from 4,234 theaters. The studio is now estimating its 3-day weekend cume bigger than expected: $115M vs $90M previously anticipated. That means the robot sequel could get to $204M for the 5-day opening total. Which means the rock’em, sock’em pic, despite lousy reviews, could gun down the 5-day opening record of $203.8M set by last summer’s The Dark Knight.
