As predicted last week, the super-hero themed MegaMind dominated the box office and took the number one spot for the second week in a row. But with the long awaited first part of the final chapter of one of the most beloved movie franchises of all-time opening this weekend, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1, its hard to believe that the animated film won't loose the box office crown to the young magician and his friends. But the question still remains: just how much money can the children of Hogwarts earn this weekend?

Predicted to debut at number one this week is the long awaited final chapter of the beloved Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1. The film features returning stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Alan Rickman, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Gambon, Maggie Smith, Helena Bonham Carter, Bill Nighy and Rhys Ifans. Currently the movie has an average rating of a 4.5 on our site. Out of the sixty-five people who have rated the film fifty-three of them have given it five stars while the trailer for the movie has had over 44,000 views. Here is what one of our readers had to say about the new movie: "The most emotionally driven Harry Potter yet and it is certainly an epic." The movie is predicted to earn about $128.5 million in its opening weekend, which would place it fifth on the list of all-time best opening weekends, right behind The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 3, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, respectively.

Predicted to drop one place from last week is the new super-hero themed animated family film MegaMind, which stars Will Ferrell (The Other Guys), Tina Fey (Baby Mama), Jonah Hill (Superbad) and Brad Pitt (Troy). While the movie dropped 34.7% last week from its debut the previous week, it was added on five screens for a total of 3,949, earning $7,611 on each for weekend total of about $30 million. In just two weeks the movie has earned around $89.7 million, which puts it a little closer to earning back its entire $130 million production budget. The movie is predicted to earn an additional $16.4 million this weekend.

Predicted to fall one place from its debut last week to number three is the fifth film from director Tony Scott and actor Denzel Washington (Crimson Tide, Man on Fire, Deja Vu, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3) called Unstoppable.

Last week the movie made $7,328 on each of its 3,207 screens for an opening weekend total of $23.5 million, which is not even close to earning back its entire $100 million production cost. The movie is predicted to earn an additional $11.7 million this weekend

Predicted to debut at number four this week is the other new film on the charts, the prison break thriller The Next Three Days. The movie stars Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Wilde, RZA, Brian Dennehy and Liam Neeson. Currently the movie has an average rating of a 3.8 on our site. Out of the ten people who have rated the film only four of them have given it five stars while the trailer for the movie has had over 7,000 views.
