‘Half-Blood Prince’ hits theaters

Potter fans rejoice! Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince hits  theaters today, July 15.  So, whether you attended one of the more than 3,000 midnight showings, or plan on seeing the film at a later date (in theaters, on DVD, or even on TV), we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

As the hours tick by, we will update you with additional film reviews and box office revenue figures. A hint of what’s to come: “According to executives who have seen the survey data for ‘Potter,’ however, it has a good shot at beating the all-time domestic record for Wednesday ticket sales of $62 million set last month by ‘Revenge of the Fallen.'”
