Who Will Cast The Biggest Spell At Box Office?
Four new movies are arriving at theaters over the Thanksgiving holiday, including what some are saying will likely be Disney's last animated feature based on a popular fairy tale, Tangled . But none of them is likely to earn more than Week 2 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 , analysts say. The penultimate installment in the 10-year-old franchise is heading into the weekend after ringing up $125 million domestically in its debut. Analysts observe that even if it drops by 60 percent this weekend, it will likely earn more than any of it rivals. Tangled (the original tale was called Rapunzel ) , which has the benefit of 3D surcharges going for it, is expected to earn around $35-40 million over the five-day holiday and around $25 million for the weekend. Likely to place third is the Cher/Christina Aguilera musical Burlesque from Sony Films, which forecasters say should earn around $15-20 million over the holiday and $10-15 million for the weekend. Fourth place, they indicate is a toss up between Fox's romcom Love and Other Drugs , with Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, and CBS Films's Faster with Dwayne Johnson, each of which should earn two or three million dollars less than Burlesque .
