In its second full week at the box office, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1, had some really tough competition over the Thanksgiving Day weekend. With four new movies opening last week, including Disney's Tangled and the new musical Burlesque, Harry Potter just squeezed into the number one position with $49 million, but Tangled was very close behind with about $48.7 million. With no new major releases this week, it looks like it will be another battle between the two children's films to see who is number one at the box office!

Predicted to take down the young wizard and earn the top spot at the box office for the first time is Tangled, the 50th animated feature film from Walt Disney Pictures, based on the classic "Rapunzel" fairy tale. The movie stars a talented cast of voice actors including Mandy Moore (A Walk to Remember), Zachary Levi (Chuck), Donna Murphy (Star Trek: Insurrection), Brad Garrett (Everybody Loves Raymond), Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy). Last week the movie made $13,628 on each of its 3,603 screens for an opening weekend total of $49.1 million. Because the movie opened on Wednesday of last week it has already earned $68.7 million since its debut, thanks to good word of mouth. The movie is predicted to earn an additional $25.6 million this weekend.

Predicted to fall one place from last week, and loosing its number one position for the first time since it entered the charts over two weeks ago, is the long awaited final chapter of the beloved Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1.
