I Now Pronounce the Weekend Winner

Chuck and Larry won the weekend with $35 million edging out Harry Potter in its 2nd weekend. Transformers stayed strong with another $20 million and is sneaking up on the milestone of $300 million+. Harry Potter crossed the $200 million mark, a remarkable feat for a fourth sequel (in six years nonetheless). Potter is on track to do average or better for the Potter series with $300 million still within reach.

This weekend, yellow fever strikes in the form of the long awaited Simpsons movie!
