Still Number One

AP: 'Harry Potter' Conjures $20M Over Weekend---

LOS ANGELES - The third weekend was still a charm for "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," which remained the top movie with $20.45 million.
Warner Bros. lifted its domestic total for "Harry Potter" to $229.8 million. Worldwide, the latest adventure of boy wizard Harry has taken in $560 million.

"`Harry Potter' is clearly dominating the business," said Paul Dergarabedian, president of box-office tracker Exhibitor Relations. "It's the movie that everybody hoped it would be. The box-office performance is living up to, and maybe at this point, exceeding expectations."
My thoughts on the movie are here.

It will be interesting to see what happens this coming weekend, with the Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe coming out. Which will be number one?
