WEEKEND BOX OFFICE-“POTTER” ALMOST GETS “TANGLED”

For the second straight weekend, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 1 captured the box office crown with an estimated $50.3 million haul. However, it was almost dethroned by the latest offering from the Mouse House, as Tangled (a.k.a. Rapunzel) came just a hair short (hair, haha! get it?) of Hallows with a $49.1 million take. Dwayne “I’m not The Rock anymore” Johnson’s awful-looking revenge flick Faster was D.O.A. with a pathetic $8 million in ticket sales.
