Projections: 'Potter' Mania Strikes Again

14 Nov, 2011 By: John Latchem



As the highest-grossing film of the year with more than $380 million in U.S. box office, Warner's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 should easily top the DVD and Blu-ray sales charts after only a few days on shelves. The final film in the 'Harry Potter' cycle was a Friday release, and the vast majority of Friday releases this year have gone on to No. 1.

Given the dearth of exciting content due Nov. 15, Potter could also find itself atop the charts its second week as well.

With most of the new releases being from studios that delay new releases to some rental outlets, Captain America: The First Avenger should top the rental chart for a third consecutive week.

Horrible Bosses should rise pretty high on the rental chart now that its Redbox embargo is over.
