Box Office: Guinea Pigs Take Down Wizards


In perhaps the first showdown ever between guinea pigs and wizards, the guinea pigs won out this weekend, as Disney's animated G-Force edged out Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince at the box office. The little furry guys grossed $32.2 million to Potter's $30 million, though Half-Blood Prince has now accumulated a total of $221.8 million domestically.

The Gerard Butler-Katherine Heigl rom-com, The Ugly Truth, had a strong opening weekend as well, coming in third place with $27 million. The fourth movie in the box office top five took in dramatically less: scary movie Orphan was No. 4 with $12.7 million. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs rounded out the top five with $8.2 million.

I'm not surprised at all. Harry Potter is the kind of movie that a lot of people went to see right when it first came out, so I didn't expect it to do that well by this point. And, while $32.2 million is certainly a respectful opening weekend intake for a movie about guinea pigs, it's not that huge of an opening.

Seriously, how did the guinea pig movie beat Harry Potter? Does this have something to do with the 3D movie theaters and their more expensive tickets? Because I know HP got kinda hosed when they switched release dates because Transformers was still in the 3D theaters so they couldn't release there.
