As easily predicted, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2 is the top grossing scifi-fantasy film this week. Super 8 and Insidious are still going strong; Trollhunter and Hobo are still moving up the chart. Not too bad of a week at the Box Office.

Sucker Punch is still the #1 scifi DVD last week, but DVD sales all seemed to be generally lower than usual. So, take a close look – lots of titles moves up and down the chart sporadically. Also, Eureka and Hobo With A Shotgun debut, along with Half Blood Prince as an affect of the new Harry Potter film.
