    Uhmm, dude. Your facts aren’t right. Check back on the source.

    It grosses $475M in less than week. THAT’s 475, not 293.

    That’s almost half a billion.

    Only Harry could do that.

    I think Alan Rickman deserves an Oscar nomination for Snape. He is a tremendous actor anyhow, but he brought such depth to a character that could have been so one dimensional. Over the last decade or so it was fantastic that all of the actors (well except for Dumbledore) stayed with the project. From the main three to Maggie Smith, Alan Rickman and all of the supporting cast.
    Kudos for keeping the series real and true.

    @blah: What are you talking about?
    Anyways happy to see them do well and JJ the numbers WW are wrong. They made 475 million WW more than any other movie heck they made 100 million more than the last record holder and made 168 million in the US 10 million more than the last record holder.
    Also to people who think it’s just gonna end this week, the HP fans will be back the next week and ride this movie out. They show up after the first week sales and keep the movie in theaters.

    Okay…Horrible boss is not a maniston movie…I know you want to believe that and go ahead and believe that. She is not the star in the movie…the three guys are the stars. So go ahead Maniston lovers and be delusional and believe that…at best she is just a supoorting actress and that’s where the credit goes!
