Potter Pilfers Flux's Bucks

by | December 5, 2005 | Comments

Harry Potter continues to reign supreme at the box office, handily overpowering the debut of Paramount’s "Aeon Flux" to enjoy his third consecutive weekend at the box office.

It may have dropped 63% in its third weekend, but the tally was still more than enough for "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" to fend of Charlize Theron and her "Aeon Flux" flick. "HP4" made about $20.5 million in its third weekend, leading to a grand total haul of about $230 million.

Debuting in second place was the aforementioned "Flux," the futuristic action flick that pulled in $13.1 million from 2,600 theaters. Not too impressive a number for a PG-13 genre effort, but considering what the final product looks like … it’s a decent number.

Third place went to the impressive "Walk the Line," which added another $10 million to its $68.7 million total, while fourth and fifth place went to Paramount’s "Yours, Mine and Ours" and "Just Friends," which nabbed $8.4m and $5.6m, respectively.

Next Friday sees the release of only one new (wide) release, a little something called "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe." Also, Oscar season kicks into full swing with the limited releases of "Brokeback Mountain," "Memoirs of a Geisha," and "The World’s Fastest Indian." (It’s got Anthony Hopkins!)
