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.
