    Well, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is released tonight at midnight...

    For Potter fans, myself included(to a lesser extent than I was formerly, though), this is what we've been waiting for: after a drought of trailers last year, a shocking release delay, and all these brutal months of waiting, its finally here.

    But, as many people know, the Potter films are a massive franchise, which means lots of $$$. Now, the above scenario was nearly the same as us Transfans, and the box office turnout has proven what a fanbase does at a box office.

    All I'm really saying is that I'm just worried that Half Blood Prince will outperform us worldwide as the number #1 of 2009.

    Any thoughts?

    ROTF has made the majority of the money it will make and its US takes will drop greatly as HBP begins suck in massive quanties of cash, say what you will about it, HP fans can be as Rabid as us

    I beg to differ.

    I watched it on Monday and it was a fairly brilliant film.

    No brain 'switching-off' required.

    Not worried, as I stated on another thread: HP will make decent money but not ROTF money. I will give everyone M&Ms if Im wrong

    Not a fan of Harry Potter myself. It may have a small shot, but it'll be tough. I don't see it hitting 350 million domestically or going any farther than that, which is a number ROTF should get past soon. Don't know about worldwide, but I'm pulling for ROTF all the way.

    So there's no Quidditch game suddenly shoved into the middle of everything?

    Nobody is worried

    Not even studio execs

    ROTF made its money back and more in half the amount of time that it took for the first movie. I think everybody at this point is quite satisfied

    No Harry Potter movie has made this much money and even if it has, it is at its last few weeks of its theatrical run. ROTF is still going strong and it hasn't even been a month

    People can calm down

    Well, unfortunately, there is.

    But it serves the plot.

    I'm not worried at all, but then again, I'm a bigger HP fan than I am a TF fan. I also don't honestly care how much a movie earns. It's never had any affect on my opinion of any movie. If it did, Titanic would be my favorite movie. Not to say it's completely horrible, it's just nowhere near my top 10 favorites.

    In the end, the only list of top box office reports I really pay any attention to is the Worldwide one, and there is no question as to which one will do better. HBP might even have a chance of topping SS/PS, tbh.

    While the box office can be a fun thing to watch because people get so worked up about it in the end the box office means nothing at all to me. When I'm deciding which DVD to buy or which film to rent how much money it made never even enters my mind.

    I mean honestly is there any one here that ranks the movies they like based on box office? You either liked a movie or you didn't like a movie regardless if it made $1 or $500 million.

    HP6 has the potential to be the most bankable HP film, and that's a lot to say.

    Worldwide it will definately outperform ROTF but domestically the fight will be intense.

    Not a Potter fan myself, but knowing just how BIG the whole franchise is its gonna hit the ground running.

    It will more than likely do the same if not a bit more than RoTF.
