JK Rowling has agreed to write a new film set in the world of Harry Potter, but don’t consider it a prequel or a sequel. There was a part of that always knew Rowling would return to the world of Harry Potter. Honestly, it was kind of stupid for her not to. She had stated… read more

For the first time in history, three films in the same film season have cross the billion dollar mark for global revenue. Yes, Transformers: Dark of the Moon has now entered the not-so-exclusive-anymore billion dollar movie club. It was just yesterday that I noted that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 had crossed… read more

 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 has joined the ranks of the films to break the $1 billion dollar box office mark for global ticket sales, marking only the ninth film to do so. While impressive, it also shows that the measurement of a successful movie based on dollar amounts is hopelessly broken.… read more

In what is sure to turn in to a day long battle of pennies, two films tied for the top box office spot this weekend: Cowboys & Aliens and The Smurfs. One thing to remember with these top box office reports each week is they are based off of estimates until much later in the… read more

 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 didn’t hit the $180 million some expected it would, but it did have the biggest opening weekend ever at $168.5 million. The former record holder was The Dark Knight at $158.4 million, and factoring in the extra fees for 3D, attendance was slightly lower, but still impressive for the… read more

Normally I like to wait for the weekend to end before I report on the box office numbers, but what is currently happening with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 is just too amazing to pass up. The Thursday night midnight screenings pulled in an amazing $43.5 million from 3,800 locations, easily surpassing… read more

Finally, the final Harry Potter film is on its way to theaters, and I for one couldn’t be happier this whole thing is coming to an end. When I reviewed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows back in 2007, I was less than kind to the book.  I felt J.K. Rowling had shown herself to… read more

A Tale Of Two Books

Remember books?  You know, those things printed on paper… placed between two covers?  Yeah, those things!  Well, oddly enough, I heard about two today that are worth mentioning. In the seventh book of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,an important part of the plot hinged on a fictional children’s book called… read more

Well, I finally read it. And what did I think of the fabled Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows? It sucked. (There may be spoilers from here on out, but as the book is two months old, you can lump it.) The only thing I can think to say is that Ms. Rowling has succumbed… read more
