People always claim that the biggest film nuts out there are Star Wars fans. While I used to completely agree with this belief, the release of Lord of the Rings and the Harry Potter films have caused my ideas to shift. Sure, Star Wars fans can get a little nutty, but they are nothing compared to Harry Potter fans; and now we have the stats to prove it.

Potter Removes Sith as Number One


First off, the number of subscribers we have for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire updates is exponentially higher than those that we have for Star Wars Revenge of the Sith updates. Yes, I know that Sith has already come to theatres, but Goblet already had more subscribers before the Sith premiere as well. What is going on here? Has the film hype finally released Star Wars from its grasp and moved on to other films namely Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire? It would seem so!

To be honest, I thought it would be Superman Returns to hit the number one most opened movie page here at CanMag.Com after Revenge of the Sith. But, thanks in half to a new book coming out within the week, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has quickly jumped to the number one spot at CanMag.Com this weekend with its movie page being opened 96,152 times [and growing]. This is compared to 94,742 times for Star Wars Revenge of the Sith. The race is close but Goblet should continue to grow at an accelerated rate over Sith.


Now, I used to be part of that group that called Potter fans 'nerds' and such, but having finally read the series I do have to admit that I understand where this type of hype and fandom comes from. JK Rowling knows how to create a magnificent story that is able to draw a reader of any age into the characters, plot, and magic. And, with these films being some of the best book - to - film adaptations out there, the Potter story can draw even more consumers to the theatres and bookstores.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince comes to bookstores on July 16th. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will come to theatres on November 18th.

Stay tuned for updates.
