Winnie The Pooh

Oh bother! “Potter” positively pulverized “Pooh” at the box office over the weekend, with Disney’s latest incarnation of the “hunny”-loving bear opening in sixth place.

Winnie The Pooh made only $8 million in North America. Even though it’s a month old, Cars 2 was a rung higher at No. 5. The Pixar-Disney sequel collected $8.3 million — $12.4 million internationally.

A family film, Winnie the Pooh marked a return to the hand-drawn animation that accompanied earlier adaptations of A.A. Milne’s storybook characters.

The overwhelming winner at the box office was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, estimated by Warner Bros. to have collected $168.6 million domestically between Friday and Sunday. Setting a record both domestically and internationally for a movie opening, the Harry Potter finale beat the $158.4 million made by the 2008 Batman tale The Dark Knight — also a Warner Bros. picture.

With $15.5 million, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 set a record for best domestic opening in huge-screen IMAX theaters, overtaking the $12.2 million for last year’s Disney motion-capture film Alice In Wonderland.

According to box-office tracker Hollywood.com, domestic revenue for the weekend added up to $263 million. Ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at United States and Canadian theaters were released by Hollywood.com. Final domestic figures are scheduled for release Monday.
