Weekend Freeze: Harry Potter Shares Spotlight with Superman!

With the fourth Harry Potter film bowing today in 3,858 theaters, the beloved franchise doesn’t show any sign of losing momentum. Energized with an older-skewing PG-13 rating and excellent reviews, Warner Bros. Pictures’ Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (review #1, #2) is set to open in the same phenomenal range as its predecessors. From director Mike Newell, the film is sure to decimate everything in its path, including the lackluster Zathura from Sony Pictures and Walt Disney Pictures’ Chicken Little (review), which has enjoyed two “Potter”-free weeks atop the boxoffice. Meanwhile, 20th Century Fox will try its luck with the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line (review), which is bowing in 2,961 theaters. In regards to the title, the teaser trailer for Superman Returns is online now here and will be attached to prints of Potter.
