Harry Potter And The Chamber Of $uccess

 

Like you really expected otherwise? Of course, Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets took the number one spot over the weekend with a staggering 88.4 million dollars. While reviews were better this time around, I personally found the film similar in fashion to the last one (decent). Still, Pottermania shows no signs of slowing down. Whether this one will top the first one's original gross of nearly 320 million remains to be seen, but I predict that it will come close.

In second, last week's champ 8 Mile took a surprisingly large drop with 19.3 million. I guess it's not the type of movie everyone is flocking back to, as probably much of the film's core audience went and saw it opening weekend. The Santa Clause 2 held steady with 15.1 million, while The Ring took in another 10.6 million. The weekend's only other new release, the Steven "I'm not dead!" Segal action flick, Half Past Dead took in a rather dismal 7.8 million.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding is about to cross 200 million finally, but is slowing down with only a 4.7 million take over the weekend. Jackass: The Movie and the bomb I Spy made 3.8 million each. Frida and Sweet Home Alabama close this weekend's interesting top ten with 2.9 and 2.2 million, respectively.

Next week... will 007 make more than uh... 007? Stay tuned, DVD fans!
