'Potter,' 'Monsters' brings Nov. high to $774 mil
Any box office wizard could have predicted it weeks ago: Both Warner Bros.’ “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and Disney’s “Monsters, Inc.” rallied November to the frame’s all time high of $774 million.
While “Potter” did send Warner Bros. to the No. 1 spot for the frame of Nov. 2-29 ($246 million), the film couldn’t steal all the credit for a boffo month. “Monsters, Inc.” scared up only a million less than the $196 million cooked up by “Potter.”
Disney’s second-place monster grab of $207 million, together with Warner Bros.’ receipts, accounted for 60% of the month’s box office.
