    Harry Potter deserves to be breaking records instead of the Twlight Series. Ugh

  • http://www.twitter.com/sahina91 Sahina

    who cares? it’s going to smash their attempt at the box office anyways (as always)

  • mia

    harry potter is the most sucessful franchise of all time, who gives a fuck about shitty twilight

    yeah who cares? Harry potter will be always better than Twiilight.

    HP rocks.


    Yayyy! I hate Harry Potter, Twilight is sooo way better… Soory to the HP fans, but that’s my opinion !!! Plz don’t judge me..

  • http://www.twitter.com/sahina91 Sahina


    i’m not going to judge, but lets face it; HP will make more than Twilight. it always does.

  • LuvvvHarrypotter!!!

    Hmm… Harry Potter is epic and Twilight is a gaint fail. ‘Nuff said.

  • Celia

    DH was AMAZING!! I can’t wait to see it again! Who cares about midnight records? DH still has the 3rd highest midnight gross, but the main thing that counts is the quality of the film (which was brilliant) and the overall gross (which will no doubt cross the 1 billion mark or come pretty close).

    harry potter is the most sucessful franchise of all time,

    yeahhh THAt’s TRUE!
    but say “Twilight is sooo way better”
    …LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What the hell?

    the harry potter books
    are REALLY AMAZING, with a more complex, twilight contains a poor plot
    ..sorry twilight fans but
    8 big movies..in total…

  • Blah

    @3niefronhudgie: I totally agree with you! The Harry Potters are simply well-written (AWESOMELY well-written), whereas Twilight is a bit amateur-ish. And, come on, a clumsy emotional girl who depends on a guy for her to live happily? SO demeaning to women! Even though Meyer is a woman herself, she could learn a lot from Hermione. ;)

  • zanessa/scashley/ashnessa

    ..Does there really have to be some competition on what movie makes more ? Geez. Who cares. We all know what movie has amazing actors and a great plot. HARRY POTTER FOR THE WIN !! (no bash on Twilight) Harry Potter 7 was so intense. I SERIOUSLY CAN’T WAIT FOR PART 2. I NEED TO WATCH IT NOOOOOOOOOOOOW !!!!!!

  • Naomi

    omg how dumb are you people? WHO CARES!!!
    if you like HP it’s ok and if you like Twilight it’s ok 2!!
    both stories are stupid as hell.

  • naomi

    @Kim: dumb

  • naomi
  • mariana

    it didn’t break twilight records but at the end it will do better on the box office.
    so who cares ???!!

  • Avery

    That’s only because DH Part 1 premiered at midnight when there’s school the next day. Harry Potter fans are actually smart enough not to watch a two-and-a-half-hour film at midnight and then be completely hungover at school the whole day.

    Besides, who really cares about midnight screenings? At the end of it all, DH Part 1 will make barrels more than the $690M that Eclipse made. It always does. The lowest-selling HP film (Prisoner of Azkaban) earned more than the highest-selling Twilight film (New Moon). Fact.

  • Avery

    @TWILIGHTLOVER: And what exactly is it that you hate about Harry Potter? I want specific answers. I have yet to find someone who has read both the Twilight books and the Harry Potter books and then thought Twilight was in any way better.

  • http://__Milica__ milica

    Harry Potter is much better,Twilight is boring,and if it didn’t break record it’s not impotrant…..Part 2 will definitely…

  • noelle

    Harry Potter > Twilight.

  • http://diva_madz POGOGAL18

    twilight being the lesser franchise and made on a smaller budget still manages to surpass harry potter in opening sales- what an embarrasment for the potter brigade-

    and ofcourse HARRY POTTER overall will make more money coz isnt there like 8 films!!! and its obvious that the gross profit of 8 movies made on that scale will surpass the gross profit of all the twilight movies- HOWEVER made on such a small budget twilight sure do make a heck of alot MORE profit per movie

  • AJJA

    Are you guys fucking kidding me? Sure, Twilight is good at the beginning. When you get sick of Edwards pansy-ass smile and Bellas none-emotional face THEN you can compare these books and movies. I used to love Edward as well, then he got to cheesy. Seriosly, to say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter is just wrong.

  • sammy12343

    twilight will be 5 movies. harry potter has 8. obviosly harry potter is gonna do better considering it has more movies. harry potter rocks and twilight rocks also ( twilight is addicting, but harry potter is just better in my opinion). thats all. end of discussion… BUT THE HARRY POTTER MIDNIGHT SHOWING WAS AWESOME! ANS EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT THE NEXT ONE IS GOING TO BE SOOO SUPER DUPER EPICCC WITHOUT A DOUBT. sorry i had to i mean c’mon its freakin harry potter for god’s sake.

  • http://ultraflyy23 gold baybay

    Oh please. The lowest grossing Harry Potter film as made more than the highest grossing Twilight film. Fact is, Harry Potter will still be relevant in 10, 20 years time while Twilight will be left in the dust.

  • mvka

    im sure harry potter’ll break not only twilight records but also any another high grossing movies.harry potters movies got everything. and twilight sucks i dont understand why people are going crazy after vampire while cool wizards are on the buzz. harry potter rocks and daniels amazzzzingg……

  • Sarah

    ok so i like both Harry Potter and Twilight but i like Harry Potter better ive read both all the Harry Potter and Twilight books but i would have to say Harry Potter kept me wanting to read forever but Twilight i had to take breaks and it got boring at parts! Ive seen all Harry Potter movies (except Deathly Hallows becasue i have gone seen it yet but im goin next week!!) and all the Twilight but i dont watch Twilight that often but can Harry Potter any time and it just keeps so interested!! so idk which to chose but i guess i have to go with Harry Potter because its soo much bigger and interesting!!!! :) cant wait to see HP & The Deathly Hallows part 1!!!!! <3

  • mary

    OH HELL NO. Dude, I am a twilight fan like for real at the most part, [youtube name twilightfan, twitter, team edward, etc]
    but better than Harry Potter? OH HELL TO THE FREAKING NAW. Harry Potter is well written, way better than twilight is ever gonna be. better acting, better cast, beautiful way it is shown on screen, need I say more? you are an idiot for thinking that way.
    Sorry but even as a twilight fan even though with this post it may seem otherwise but Harry Potter > Twilight ANYDAY

  • 2bedatcool

    harry potter will make more money because it is for boys and girls

  • Catherine

    Seriously, opening doesnt matter, just add up all the money that HP made, compared to twilight and you’ll see Harry potter definately made more money. ANND, novembers a busy month, wait for Part 2 homies. Just wait.


  • twilighter

    IT says here it didn’t break ECLIPES record and it won’t break it
    i like HP but in my opnion the twilight sagas is way better than harry potter

  • shell

    @POGOGAL18: Wrong. Movie by movie Harry Potter will make more money because more people continue to see it weeks and months after it’s release while Twilight quickly dwindles after the opening weekend/week.

  • Celia

    Just saw DH for the second time!! Gets better and better!!

  • Kubra yanar

    who can compare jhonny depp’s and robert pattinson’s actings ,????? the person we are talking about is someone who has already deserved an oscar ( just didn’t get yet) but when mtv movie awards made robert pattinson got his award he was the global superstar instead of that awesome actor right ,this is absolutely not fear, not art not acting this is popularity which can be tought aas art sometimes but nt like in the twilight’s situation , harry potter is full of awesome actors actresses including the head ones and after 20 or 30 years it still will be the one which everybody still want to watch all of it … there is no fear but we know that everything is nt about fear in this world but there is nothing to worry about

  • kitty

    Harry Potter deserves to be more successful than Eclipse -.-

  • stephanie

    Love Harry Potter series… both of the books and the movies… I like it more than the twilight…. I have all of both series books… I read them all… The result: I like the HP more than the twilight… (Sorry for the twilight fans: it’s just my opinion)

    For me, HP is better than twilight because I think twilight makes me bored by long line plots while the problems in the series are not too complicated. For another reason is, it have a few more mature scenes than HP so it won’t be a good books and movies for younger reader and audience.
    I know the writer and people which are work at the Twilight series have worked very hard to create somethings for the fans… So, I don’t want to say I hate it… It’s just it doesn’t make me like it more than the HP series.

    It’s just my opinion…

    by the way, I already watched HP and the DH part 1…. love it so much… Can’t wait for the 2nd part…

    to be honest, i would never have thought to see a “fight” over Harry Potter and Twilight on here. i’m too used to seeing this on Youtube and Facebook.

    but yeah, Harry Potter will always gross out Twilight. and as for that person who said that Twilight has a lower budget, well obviously it will because what kind of special affects does it have? not many. Harry Potter requires a lot of special affects because, hello, it’s set in the Wizarding world, not a a place like Forks.

    and not one really gives a damn about midnight gross because people have the brain to watch it later. and remember, the Twilight films opened in MORE theatres than HP7. so if HP had opened in the same amount of Theatres, it would have grossed MORE.

    no matter what, HP will ALWAYS make more than Twilight. the 3 Twilight films combined made HALF than what the first 3 HP films had made. and the 3 Twilight films (which came out within a year and a half) didn’t even manage to overtake Half-Blood Prince (which came out near the same time as Twilight).

    and besides, Twilight will never break the records that HP has broken in the past 10 years.


  • Just Interested

    STFU you dumbass harry potter fan find this insulting
    twilight shit got nothing on harry potter

  • lauren

    Twilight is reallly lameeee! the story line is way to corny.
    whereas harry potter, is something anyone can watch! and will find it actually entertaining!
    dont get me wrong, twilight may be corny but i still watch it!
    but harry potter? is actually amazing. with an amazing cast!!

  • liz

    @TWILIGHTLOVER: @TWILIGHTLOVER: Stephanie meyer doesnt know how to write for S***!!! She’s made millions on garbage that she spewed on a paper! Harry potter never gets boring and the movies dont deviate from the books! score: harry potter 10: twilight 0!!! when in comparison.

  • Alyssa

    I love both Twilight and HP.

    Twilight books are better, Harry movies are better.

  • MEEE


    u havent read the books, right? :S
    U SUCK

  • http://twitter.com/suupitstracy yo

    It doesn’t matter because Eclipse was released in the summer, when you could stay out late on a school day. HP was released during the school year. Just wait until DH P2 comes out. We’ll top them for sure.>:)

  • jessica

    who cares?
    it will have huge numbers by the end of the weekend.

    Harry Potter > Twilight

  • alex

    @avery @gold baybay:
    Thank God some people on this site have common sense and can actually form grammatically correct sentences! Twilight is good in the way a chick flick is good: watch it once and that’s enough. Not to mention the main character practically teaches girls that it’s okay to have no self-esteem or sense of self at all; whereas the Harry Potter series (books and films) have actual substance and teach lessons that are applicable to almost anything in real life. And HP’s female protagonist (character and actress) gives girls a strong, intelligent role model to look up to…. when I have kids, I know which stories I’d rather they be exposed to!
