Four new releases made up this year’s traditional Thanksgiving movie-smorgasbord, though none came close to unseating Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1.  After six days in theatres, Potter’s penultimate chapter has already racked up a domestic estimate of $158.5 million.  When added to its foreign haul, the film’s worldwide total stands at $363 million.  As expected, Potter’s closest competitor on the day before Thanksgiving was Disney’s Tangled.  The animated take on Rapunzel opened with $11.6 million from its 3,603 runs and is expected to bring in $65 million by the end of the holiday weekend.  Sony/Screen Gem’s Burlesque beat out Fox’s Love and Other Drugs – a surprise which can be partially explained by the musical’s higher screen count. Neither title is expected to earn over $18 million by Sunday.  Finally, CBS’s Faster fell outside the top five in seventh place. The R-rated action flick brought in an estimated $1.6 million from its 2,454 runs.  We’ll have Thanksgiving box office updates later this weekend.
