Disney’s Tangled Tops Deathly Hallows at the Box Office
Even with Tangled being Disney’s first hit in almost a decade, the Los Angeles Times says it took two weekends for Rapunzel to climb over Harry Potter at the box office.
During its third weekend at the theaters, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 fell 66%, earning only $16.7 million. I say ‘only’ as if 16.7 million is a paltry number (which it isn’t) but Harry’s latest adventure is on the downhill slide faster than Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the previous HP film that opened right before a Thanksgiving weekend in 2005.
Tangled, on the other hand, brought in $21.5 million, with ticket sales slipping down 56%. The modern spin on the classic fairy tale is just a little short of hitting the $100 million mark for gross receipts in the U.S. after just 12 days.
Overseas, Tangled has opened in 15 foreign markets and grossed $45.8 million, but Deathly Hallows continues to dominate outside the U.S., earning $469 million in 62 foreign markets. The numbers make me wonder if Harry would still be riding as high if Tangled had more of a presence outside the States.
Even though Harry seems to be losing his touch a little bit, Deathly Hallows has still managed to bring in $244.2 million in just the U.S. and Canada so I don’t think the wizard is worrying too much.
