Box office report for Nov. 29, 2010: "Harry Potter 7" has a bit more magic than "Tangled"
In the box office battle between a teenage wizard and a fairy-tale princess, â€śHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1â€ł had just a bit more magic than Disneyâ€™s animated adventure â€śTangled.â€ť
â€śHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1â€ł remained the No. 1 movie with $50.3 million over the Thanksgiving weekend, closely followed by the animated musical â€śTangledâ€ť with $49.1 million, according to the Associated Press.
The penultimate â€śHarry Potterâ€ť movie raised its domestic total to $220.4 million after just 10 days in theaters.
â€śTangledâ€ť is the latest Disney animated princess tale, with Mandy Moore providing the voice of Rapunzel. The movie raised its five-day total to $69 million since opening the day before Thanksgiving.
While â€śDeathly Hallowsâ€ť continued to conjure box office magic, Disneyâ€™s â€śTangledâ€ť far exceeded industry expectations, delivering the second-biggest Thanksgiving debut ever behind â€śToy Story 2,â€ť which had a $57.4 million opening.
Disney head of distribution Chuck Viane told the AP the studio would have been happy if â€śTangledâ€ť had matched the $34 million debut of its hit â€śEnchantedâ€ť over Thanksgiving 2007.
Three other new wide releases had unremarkable openings, led by Christina Aguilera and Cherâ€™s song-and-dance tale â€śBurlesqueâ€ť at No. 4 with $11.8 million for the weekend and a five-day total of $17.2 million since premiering Wednesday.
