Winnie The Pooh

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.
