Turns Out Simpsons Are Better Than Harry Potter

It looks like The Simpsons Movie did a hell of a lot better than the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie. Go Homer! Woo-hoo!

The Simpsons movie pushed Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix all the way to 3rd place with this past weekend’s profits.

$70 million in it’s opening weekend. Which makes it the 3rd largest debut for an animated film.

$17 million in this past weekend.

This just goes to show that Harry Potter isn’t as popular as everyone thinks. There are more people out there that love Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. Oh, can’t forget Santa’s Little Helper! 😛
