Box Score: Captain America knocks off Harry Potter

The wizardry magic of Harry Potter was no match for the superpower of Captain America: The First Avenger [CAPAM] which earned an estimated $65.8 million to top the weekend box office.   The opening matched the $65.7 million debut of Marvel stablemate ThorCaptain America attracted an audience that was 64% males and 57% over the age of 25. 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 [HPOT8] tumbled a whopping 72% in its second weekend to $48.0 million.  Even without crossing over to non-fans, the final film has already accumulated $274.2 million.

Friends with Benefits [FWBFT] opened in third place with $18.5 million.  The second R-rated comedy about causal sex this year did less than the $19.7 million of the first, No Strings Attached.   The film appealed to women who made up 62% of the audience.
