After winning at the chart for two straight weeks, the latest installment of 'Harry Potter' finally hands out the crown to the Disney animation.
"Tangled" has emerged on the peak of North American Box Office on its second weekend. After giving a strong competition to "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" last week, the new take on Rapunzel tale claims the first spot with $21.6 million.
"Quality rises to the top," Disney distribution boss Chuck Viane comments on the film's receipts. "Meantime, we have the holidays ahead of us, and therein lies the strength of our long-term prospects." The animation, which is released in 2D and 3D, has made a total of $96.6 million cume so far.
"Deathly Hallows: Part I", which had maintained the champ title for two weeks, now lands on the second place with $17 million. Despite dropping about 65.3% in ticket sales, the movie does not go anywhere far from the top position since there was not any big title making its debut last weekend.
"Burlesque", "Unstoppable" and "Love and Other Drugs" climb up one position each to the third, fourth and fifth place respectively. The drama musical adds $6.1, the drama thriller takes in $6 million, while the R-rated romantic movie takes in $5.6 million.
Meanwhile, newcomer "The Warrior's Way" enters the chart on the ninth place with $3 million cume. "Black Swan", which got rave reviews, debuts on the thirteenth with an estimated $1.4 million from the screenings in selected U.S. theaters.
