So who was expecting Apes to do that well? Plus we have Harry Potter (finale), Pirates 4, and Transformers 3 all well over a billion dollars!!!

Now according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Potter_and_the_Deathly_Hallows_%E2%80%93_Part_2                The final Harry Potter cost about the same as the last few Harry movies "250 million", plus advertising of course. Studios usually make back 55 percent of the profits that theaters make.

Transformers 3 according to Boxofficemojo.com cost 190 million to make!!! Pirates cost 250 million.

So the movie with the most action and computer graphics cost 60 million less then the other two?

Finally Universal continues to struggle. Larry crown even world wide seems posed to only make around 60 million on a 30 million dollar budget. Now "The change-up" is out with a 50 million budget, great reviews, and nothing to show for it hardly. Maybe Universal needs its own killer superhero franchise?

Universal did have Bridesmaids and Fast Five to put them in a good position for the rest of the year. It is still the waiting game on Cowboys v Aliens global total though!!

Planet of the Apes looks AWESOME! Glad it did well



 

You know what Seece! The trailer actually looked pretty good, plus they had what I like in a trailer killer orchestrated music!

 

On a side note, Wikipedia says Harry's budget included both part 1 and 2, which is kind of hard for me to swallow! I am betting at least 350 million, but maybe I am wrong. If wikipedia is right then Harry is doing much better percentage wise than Transformers!

DH2 is now #3 on the all time chart...easily surpassed return of the king.



Around the Network

It has a lot more left in it too! So it will take a sizeable lead over all of them. I doubt Titanic will be catchable especially since John Cameron from what I remember is supposed to be re-releasing it in 3D soon.

Rmise of the apes is a great movie glad it topped the us charts. NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! lol most epic line this year.



One of the surprises of the year is Woody Allen's latest, Midnight in Paris. Boxoffice of almost 82 million worldwide (48,5 million in USA alone), not bad for a 75 year old director who had his most successful movies in the 70s and 80s.



It was a surprise! He has been doing good lately though. What was the budget? 40 million!!!
