This was a surprise to no one!!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 used its magic to remain at the number one spot at the box office this Thanksgiving weekend.

Taking in $50.3 million just this weekend alone, the movie has grossed a total of $220.4 million after being in theaters for just 10 days.

Wowsa.

Disney's cartoon Tangled, starring Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi took the second place spot right behind Harry Potter, with $49.1 million, which "far exceeded industry expectations." It's become the second biggest Thanksgiving debut ever, behind Toy Story 2.

Will Ferrell's Megamind was still going strong with $12.9 million. Wow! That movie's made a buttload of ca$h!

Christina Aguilera's film debut Burlesque brought in a disappointing $11.8 million and a five-day total of $17.2 million.

Yikes.

Unstoppable rounded out the top five box office movies this weekend with $11.75 million.

What did U see this Thanksgiving weekend??

    I went to see Harry Potter again, i just love this movie, i can't wait for part 2,and by the amount of people that were in the movie theater to watch Harry Potter i knew it was gonna be on top again.In fact im still not done with it, ill probably watch it again, its soo worth it.



  6. 6

    you are disgusting perez. definitely. she obiously was not going to go get the #1 spot against big production franchises, she did preety decent competing with those.



  7. 7

    Somehow, that number for Burlesque doesn't seem bad. It's not like families were going to race out and see a movie called Burlesque. Not straight guys either. Seems like a movie for gays and gals who don't necessarily have to see a movie opening weekend.

    I saw Harry Potter of course



  9. 9

    I LOVE that only you are referring to Burlesque's numbers as disappointing. Considering it's competition and thanksgiving weekend it did well.

    I hope people are seeing right through your "nice perez," gimmick.



  10. 10

    It's funny how you didn't say CHER'S movie made a disappointing $17.5 million. Because it's considered a disappointment at the box office, it's Christina's movie. Besides, when you're up against juggernauts like Harry Potter and Disney movies like Megamind and Tangled, what do you expect? I saw Burlesque and I thought it was really good. And I just may see it again.

  11. tasha says – reply to this

    So how come you didn't mention or say Yikes to Anne Hathaway and Jake gyllenhaal's movie Love and Other Drugs making even less then Christina's with 9.8 million for the weekend and 14 million for the 5 day weekend?



  12. 12

    I'm a big HP fan but for me, this one was a snoozefest. Saw The Next 3 Days which wasn't bad at all; at least I stayed awake.



  13. 13

    Re: sparky3434 – Couldn't agree with you more. What does Perez expect? For Burlesque to beat Harry Potter or a Disney movie? Give me a freaking break. It did VERY well for the competition it was up against. I saw it twice and plan on seeing it again. It's a very sexy, funny and up-lifting movie. I see people out there saying they wont go see it because Christina is in it or they *think* it looks bad. Your loss folks.



  14. 14

    Mario shut the fuck up…It was better when you were an obvious hater…Coz now you're a fake shit…even worse..



  15. 15

    you are disgusting Gordo perez. definitely. Eres un Envidioso, Burlesque is Great! Now Burlesque Soundtrack is number 1 itunes top 100 albums. And 17.2 is not bad idiot —Christina The Queen!



  16. 16

    I am SO glad that Cher's movie flopped. Maybe next time she'll remember not to insult a large group of movie goers because of their political views just a few weeks before her movie comes out. Megan Fox did the same thing and blamed middle America for her movie bombing, right after she talked openly about how she hates "middle America."



  17. 17

    Re: sparky3434 – very good point about cher or christinas movie.



  18. 18

    You are a fat FAILED, BURLESQUE is a success, OTHER NOT COMPARE WITH HARRY
    POTTER IS A FILM THAT IS IN ALL THE ROOMS OF THE WORLD, AND JUST IN BURLESQUE
    U.S. AND CANADA … IDIOT, BURLESQUE IS A SUCCESS, SO THAT NO PUBLIC DE LA BANDA
    SOUND IS # 1 ON ITUNES? LOST FOOL
    FROM ARGENTINA! HATE YOU ALL!



  19. 19

    Come on Perez ! Stop being biased…Cuz actually Burlesque has had a better start than Moulin Rouge! (14 m$), Chicago (8 m $), Sweeny Todd (9 m $)& Rent (10m $) ! So… How can u dare to say it's a flop ?



  20. 20

    Re: tiggerchick5 – She's allowed to speak her mind and if you don't like it, don't go see the movie. She doesn't want your close-minded, bible thumping money anyway.



  21. 21

    Perez,you're so pathetic…i am sick of you bitter ASSHOLE.yes,I said asshole.coz thats who you are.



  22. 22

    Burlesque matched expectations



  23. 23

    It's funny how Perez doesn't mention Cher's political rants against Sarah Palin and the tea party…. Tick off those people and pay at the box office….



  24. 24

    Youre so dumb. Burlesque was expected to hit about 20 million for opening. The studio is expecting it to make all the money back internationally. Youre such a jackass



  25. 25

    Review by Lisa Schwarzbaum opens her C- review of the film with a big think:
    -
    "Earnestly ersatz down to every spangle, dance move, plot turn, and line of hokum dialogue, Burlesque is a showbiz pic for these American Idol times - a time when we agree to pretend that mediocre mimicry of better artists is good enough to keep us entertained.
    -
    We agree to pretend that quality is in the eye and ear of the undemanding beholder.
    -
    We agree that life is a cabaret, that camp trumps criticism, and that the sight of 64-year-old Cher in corset, glitter, and full kabuki make-up is its own reward."



  26. 26

    Come on Perez ! Stop being biased…Cuz actually Burlesque has had a better start than Moulin Rouge! (14 m$), Chicago (8 m $), Sweeny Todd (9 m $)& Rent (10m $) ! So… How can u dare to say it's a flop ? x2 -> My thoughts exactly!



  27. 27

    BURLESQUE WAS FABULOUS IM SURE IT WILL GET BIGGER NUMBERS AS WORD OF MOUTH REACHES EVERY ONE. IM GOING BACK FOR ANOTHER GREAT EVENING. CHER WAS GREAT



  28. 28

    You are a fat FAILED, BURLESQUE is a success, OTHER NOT COMPARE WITH HARRY
    POTTER IS A FILM THAT IS IN ALL THE ROOMS OF THE WORLD, AND JUST IN BURLESQUE
    U.S. AND CANADA … IDIOT, BURLESQUE IS A SUCCESS, SO THAT NO PUBLIC DE LA BANDA

  29. 29

    burlesque was not dissapointing. Look at other musical films, then we can talk



  30. 30

    i saw harry potter… for the third time. I JUST CANT GET ENOGUH OF ITT



  31. 31

    Re: Eric Andrew Greer – Agreed . I didn't see Burlesque but a 17.2 million dollar opening is not disappointing at all.



  32. 32

    I wach burlesque and I love it !!! Xtina & Cher where amazing!! 18.000.000 for a musical in 5 days Is great:) but werever fat asshole xtina is #1 in iTunes the movie was realise only in USA, Canada , wait unltill realise in the uk, asia , Russia world wide. Plus DVD sales , rentals, tv clable rights, soundtrack #1 plus a WORLD TOUR $$$$$$$$$$$$$money coming no matter what a fat gay asshole like you said you always sound like you have a chili in your ass:(



  33. 33

    People need to realize that kids are not going to drag there parents to go to Burlesque or vice versa. So of course it isn't going to do as good as the rest of them. Get over it.



  34. 34

    And rightfully so! Such a great movie!



  35. 35

    no one was expecting a top 2 finish for Burlesque…but i wouldnt call it disappointing….the move was really good. and Christina deffo held her own in it.
    besides it was thanksgiving weekend..which is gold for KIDS movies.
    why not mention that the rocks movie did nothing…or jakes & annes movie?



  36. 36

    Re: Eric Andrew Greer – Great minds think alike Eric. I just saw it for a second time today, and may see it again tomorrow. Burlesque was so much fun to watch. Now we just have to wait for it to come out on DVD.



  37. 37

    Not only did I see Burlesque twice, but I also saw Love and Other Drugs this weekend. It was a very good movie, as long as you have some Kleenex. It's funny how Perez never mentioned that Burlesque beat this movie with superstars like Jake Gyllenhall and Anne Hathaway, who were great. And you can't forget the nude scenes by BOTH Anne and Jake. Hot!



  38. 38

    Once an asshole
    Always an asshole



  39. 39

    And rightfully so. Such a great movie!



  40. 40

    there are many pigtina fan idiots that thinks 17 million is good!!! ha ha ha ha ha!!! for a 55 miillons movie like burlesque, sony and screen gems needs to sell 120-130 millions worldwide to recovery their investment, becuase almost the 50% is for the cinemas owners. ha ha ha ha ha!!! sorry guys but burlesque needs a miracle to make the money back. ha ha ha ha ha!!!



  41. 41

    The Two Fugly's, Jake and Hathaway have zero chemistry and neither can carry a movie.
    Hollywood makes movies that only appeal to Hollywood and they wonder why audiences stay away.
    me



  42. 42

    LMAO! Another flop for the queen of flops, Floptina. I love it.



  43. 43

    SAW BURLESQUE AND HARRY POTTER. BURLESQUE WAS 'AMAZING!!!!!!' AND THERE WERE A LOT OF STRAIGHT GUYS IN OUR THEATER TO SEE SCANTILY CLAD WOMEN!!!

    HARRY POTTER WAS GOOD TOO — SAW IT WITH MY KIDS. I DON'T THINK 17 MILL FOR CHRISTINA'S FIRST MOVIE IS DISAPPOINTING AT ALL ESPECIALLY AGAINST HARRY POTTER!



  44. 44

    Re: meximax – The movie just came. If It has made 17million in one week thats good. because of world of mouth it will do better next week. sorry but there right its not a flopp It went head to head with HP and that snozfest with anne hathaway a closet case Jake.



  45. 45

    Um, box office estimates for Burlesque this weekend alone are supposed to be over 17 million. Obviously Burlesque wasn't going to outsell HP, lol.
    BURLESQUE IS A SUCCESS
    AND THE SOUNDTRACK IS CURRENTLY #1 ON ITUNES
    CHRISTINA FANS RE-JOICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  46. 46

    Agullara cannot act !

    Burlesque - was great. Saw Harry Potter before Thanksgiving - fell asleep 6-7 times. The movie was ssssttttrrrretttttccccchhhhheddddd to make it into two movies. Good thing my theatre is inexpensive. I'll wait for Part 2 to come out on Netflix.



  49. 49

    Burlesque had a 55 million dollar budget so they should be able to make profit if they made 17 mil in just 5 days… it's not a blockbuster movie but it isn't a flop either.



  50. 50

    Christina cannot act…the movie has a thin plot…the music is so-so…IF it wasn't for Cher, it would be a total bomb ! Sorry, I gotta tell it like it is……



  51. 51

    And you want us to believe your MR NICE now? Ugh..



  52. 52

    Went to see Burlesque and it was great!!!
    My hysband usually comments after watching a movie: it was alright (line meaning: so so)
    Yesterday he said: It was a very good movie!
    Cher still got it! Christina is "sensational!



  53. 53

    Re: meximax – What's it like being such a ridiculously negative person? You're probably the happiest being as negative as you are, and that's really sad. It amazes me that you even care enough to respond to this story. With comments like "pigtina" I'm hoping that you're 10 years old. But I'm suspecting that you're an adult who needs to seriously grow up.



  54. 54

    Pigface was waiting for Christina to fail and oops, she didn't!



  55. 55

    c'mon. burlesque been out for just 5 days and HP is out for i think 10 years?? haha. and all i heard is burlesque is a success and now this pig's saying that it is a disappointment?? i thought he love the movie?? but i dont care.



  56. 56

    Perez totally hates Christina….. it is only the result for the first week,next week it's gonna pick up another 10 mln $ , of course Burlesque can't hit Harry Potter….. Besides,when the Burlesque DVD is on sale,it will make millions of dollars,so Cher and Christina are succesfull and rich,and you suck,Perez…..



  57. 57

    Perez is mad cause ”Love and other drugs” stuff payed him for promoting the movie on his page,and it FAILED…..Perez,face the reality,Cher and Xtina are beautiful rich divas,people love them….you are a FAT,UGLY male,who wishes he was a woman



  58. 58

    Christina is well known for her great singing, but I think people aren't very psyched about the movie because she's not known for her acting. Sure, Cher is in the movie, but she's not the main character.

    I think if there was another main character, beside Christina who sings and acts then maybe the movie would've been a big hit.

    Like, Chicago was a big hit because it had numerous talents in it.

    But it wasn't a huge disappoint. Give Xtina a break. For her first film, she did good.



  59. 59

    Ha. Burlesque OST had hitted the #1 spot in Itunes. Can't wait to see it December 16th when it's released in Holland. Burlesque is only out in ONE place in the world now, other countries will follow later this year AND next year. Go check your sources before post shit. Perez really you are disgusting..! Christina deserves the best after all she's been through this year. You've already ruined things for her. It's time to shut your mouth about her. It's stupid people believe the shit you've been talking about her. And.. of course Harry Potter sells the best…that's not a suprise at all but you can't compare these movies. I hope Burlesque OST will stay at #1 and I hope December and 2011 will get better for Christina, cause she doens't deserve negative attention at all. I love her. STay strong



  60. 60

    I saw HP7 again for the second time!!!! And I'll keep seeing it!!! Much better than POS with Xtina…terrible.



  61. 61

    Burlesque Is Amazing… !!! Perez And Others Drugs is a Flop!!! FLOPPEREZ HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA



  62. 62

    I want 2 see Burlesque



  63. 63

    I saw Tangled this weekend and it was REALLY cute! Totally recommend! It was WAY better than Megamind!



  64. 64

    I've already seen Harry Potter twice since it opened, and I have plans to see it again. It is so good and deserves the top spot.
    That being said, I also want to see all those other ones. My love of Disney will never die, but I have ot wait till I'm home for Christmas to see those movies with my sister. And I actually do want to see Burlesque, it's just not a top priority right now, and obviously it can't compete with a massive franchise or other family-oriented movies.



  65. 65

    I saw Burlesque, and it really wasn't bad at all. It was actually pretty good, and funny :)



  66. 66

    dissapointing???… Burlesque has the 4th best debut $$$ in Musicals history… asllll



  67. 67

    Hey Perez, I have an idea. Why not wear a - 'I hate Christina Aguilera' sign over your neck so that we can all know how much you hate this woman, even though you keep posting how you're so 'proud' of her. You're disgusting and you just can't stand to see this woman successful. This is her debut movie, and nobody was excepting her to do an Oscar worthy performance. And 17 million on its first week is a flop according to you? FUCK YOU! And may I remind you that this movie is released in one place in the world.
