Weekend Box Office #40

So HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX opened on Wednesday, to huge ($44.2 million in its first day) numbers. It's sort of an odd film, in that, as the 5th entry in a 7-movie series, it is much more of a sequel than it is a stand-alone film. Still, in 4285 theaters (and on over 9000 screens) it should do another $85 million or so this weekend.

Otherwise, the only other movie opening wide is CAPTIVITY, in only 1050 theaters. Hopefully torture porn is on its way out; I don't think it'll make over $3 million.

This weekend reminds me that I need to get back to work on my Harry Potter Snuff fan spec.

Just saw "Licence to Wed." I was kinda supriced by how much I liked it. Mandy Moore was adorible, and John Krasinski more than holds his own in this movie, I fact I think he's its star! Robin Williams isn't as bad as I going into this movie I feared he would be.

I think John Krasinski has a VERY BRIGHT future in romantic comedies IF he so choses to do so, and he's brilliant in the "The Office." Ya know, I think I'll write him a love letter. Hey, don't judge me!
