One week at number one was all “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” could manage after all.  The sixth installment in Warner Brother’s epic wizarding-world saga succumbed to the superior numbers of Disney’s “G-Force”, which opened this weekend to a total of $32.2 million from 3,697 theatres – including 1,603 in Digital 3D.  Falling over 61% in its second weekend, “Half-Blood” still pulled in a respectable $30 million – good enough for second place and to bring the film’s worldwide total above $457 million. “The Ugly Truth” earned a very solid $27 million in its first weekend from 2,882 locations – proving that audiences are still in the mood to spend lavishly on romantic-comedies, no matter how terrible and ill-conceived those comedies might be.  And bringing up the rear of this weekend’s new releases parade, Dark Castle’s “Orphan” earned $12.8 million from its 2,750 venues.
