    I'm willing to say that the TF movie will place second this weekend against Harry Potter....HP has just as many fans (if not more) as Transformers does....thats just the nature of the beast.

    And when the Simpsons movie comes out in a few, I think it'll drop down to third

    It'll probably wind up with a %50 drop overall for the week, possibly more.

    Harry Potter? The closest I get is his unfunny webcomic.

    Come the weekend, I'd wager that business will be booming again; come the end of the month, there'll be a few more coins in the coffers from this side of the pond. :) 

    And Hairy Snotter? Pass. :p

    Harry Potter made it on the front page of BOTH papers in this town, today.

    Transformers, never made it anywhere in the paper besides the cinema listings

    HP is a sequel I wouldnt doubt if many ppl dont go and see it because it is a sequel and the last in a trilogy is known to get bad reviews - Aliens 3, T3, SM3 etc.

    And Simpsons will suck regardless

    How can the 5th movie in a series be the last in a trilogy?

    That's a pretty normal drop, I'd actually have expected it to be a little more precipitous. If anything it's a good sign that it's holding up as well as it is against Harry Potter.

    But it's not the last no matter what you call it. This is the 5th out of 7. Also, they're based on books, and the "last chapter of a trilogy being bad" rule of thumb really only applies to original film concepts, not adaptations.

    who cares if harry potter does better. we're getting a sequel, thats all we want right?

    besides...transformers is probably better anyways.

    forget wizards, it's all about transforming robots!

    HP will most likely end up in the top spot this week. This is not a suprise. HP has a huge following with families and a good track record for quality of product. TF however will continue to make a good deal of money. I am planning on going again at least once this week if not more.

    Sorry, but that sounds like a nerd vs. nerd argument.

    Never having read the books or seen the movies, I can't make that comparison.

    Let's call out all TF fans to go and see the movie one more time this weekend to make sure that dick potter doesn't get #1.
