    I could have sworn TFs beat Potter and his lame post-puberty-ness.

    TFs are at $200 million domesticaly and $400 million worldwide, isn't Potter only at $150 million worldwide?

    Chuck and Larry, now that's funny shit!

    Not surprising at all sinc very few movies ever stay #1 more than one week.


    And Transformers are in 4th place...Hairspray beat them. Now that is sad.

    Yeah I was rather surprised at Hairspray taking number 3, it seemed so destined to be a #7 or 8 opening, maybe less eh

    No one's asking the obvious question here...how the hell did Chuck and Larry beat out ANY of those movies?

    Oh wait. Adam Sandler. Even when it's crap, he's box office gold. *shakes head*

    I credit Christopher Walken for that. :tongue:

    You know what, I'll be honest here, when I saw Walken in the trailer, it occurred to me that no matter what, I WOULD probably watch Hairspray, I wouldn't protest really, Walken makes anything worth watching. It's not something I'd see on my own, but if someone puts it on on DVD or something one day, fuck it. Walken. Walken is all I need.

    Also: Chuck and Larry has that whole sex appeal thing working with Jessica Biel's "hey i'm a show off mah body" scene in every fucking trailer and tv spot.

    But it's got Christopher Walken in it. Walken makes any movie better. He makes music videos better as well. Never could watch any Fatboy Slim video except for the one in which Walken is dancing in AIR!

    The Chris Walken coolness factor is nullified by John Travolta in drag wearing a fat suit. So, not even The Continental could save that movie.

    Faith people, faith. Miscalculating the pure awesome of Walken is the most devastating form of blasphemy

    Hey, if I didn't realize it, I wouldn't have been able to name that positive eh? I know all too well :D 

    Thread should be renamed Chuck and Larry bury Harry imo

    I think this weekend shows it's pretty much a foregone conclusion that Transformers will beat out Harry Potter on domestic box office. TF made 37 million it's 2nd weekend and Potter only 32 million. And that's with HP opening closer to the weekend than TF. HP is dropping off at a faster rate than TF, and will have trouble making $300 million.

    Internationally is a whole different story.
