Potter Leftovers for Disney and Sandler

Box office estimates for the long Thanksgiving weekend are in, putting Warner Bros.’ Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets back on top after being knocked down a peg by Bond last weekend. According to boxofficemojo.com, the effects-laden tale of wizardry and mystery conjured up another $32.1 million to put it just over the $200 million mark in just three weeks.

In its second week of release, Die Another Day crossed the $100 million mark, proving that James Bond still has box office fire power. The film took in $31 million over the five-day period for a close second-place finish. However, that narrow margin of just over $1 million may turn into a victory for MGM when the final numbers come in.

Sailing in at fourth place, behind Disney’s The Santa Clause 2, is Disney’s Treasure Planet with an estimated $16.5 million. The swashbuckling, animated, sci-fi adventure just managed to nudge out Sony Pictures’ comedy Eight Crazy Nights. Adam Sandler’s animation debut opened to the tune of just over $15 million to round out the top five.
