Looks like even wizard boy-wonder Harry Potter is no match for the force that is G-Force.
I never thought I'd say this, but.....Guinea Pigs ROCK!
According to today's Variety.com:
The G-forces were too strong for the competition as Disney's "G-Force" won the crowded race at the domestic box office, grossing $32.2 million and surpassing holdover "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince."
"Half-Blood Prince," from Warner Bros., grossed an estimated $30 million from 4,325 in its second sesh for a domestic cume of $221.8 million.
Sony's Katherine Heigl-Gerard Butler romantic comedy "The Ugly Truth" opened to a strong $27 million from 2,882 theaters.
Now, this box office coup may be a surprise to y'all......
But I have two young friends -- Mikyla (age 10) and Samantha (age 8), who saw a screening of G-Force with me on Wednesday evening, and predicted its' overwhelming box office success right away.
Yep, the "Mouse House" has done it again.
Seriously.....don't ever underestimate the power of a grade-schooler's love of Disney and "Gadgets, Gizmos and Guinea Pigs. In 3-D!"
I'm just sayin'.
So, if you're debating on whether or not to check out this romp with your favorite kiddo.....
Just watch the video below to see what the actual G-Force target demo has to say about this new flick --
Hmmm....looks like Harry hangin' on to the top spot for a second week in a row didn't stand a chance.
That's OK, we've made some room for him at the big people's table. Harry will be back and bigger than ever real soon....
Of that....I'm sure.
