Box Office Results: G-Force takes down Harry Potter

Studio Estimates for July 24-26:

1.  G-Force – $32.2 million
2.  Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – $30 million
3.  The Ugly Truth – $27 million
4.  Orphan – $12.8 million
5.  Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs – $8.2 million

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince failed to top the box office for a second straight weekend thanks to Disney’s family-adventure film, G-Force.  I knew pets sell but that basically involves dogs.  I did not expect guinea pigs to be at center-stage stealing the show from Harry Potter.

The Ugly Truth had a very nice opening weekend with $27 million.  Orphan placed fourth with a $12.77 million opening and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs nabbed the fifth spot during its fourth weekend.

As for our predictions, Phil and I were able to guess all of the Top 5 films correctly.  Our only mistake was underestimating G-Force and leaving Harry Potter on top.  As for Sheehan, he failed to list The Ugly Truth on the Top 5 and instead predicted Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen to make the Top 5.  Transformers landed the sixth spot with $8 million.

Check back on Friday for our new predictions for next weekend when three new films hit the theaters:  Aliens in the Attic, The Collector and a film I’m highly anticipating, Funny People.
