Not a suprise – it would been higher if it’d been released earlier.

Since it’s ‘most watched’ trailers I think it’s telling that it’s right up there and is such a recent release. Yay anyway, it’s such a great trailer

I’m usually indifferent to trailers, but the first teaser trailer for HBP was incredible. I loved the scene in the orphanage with Dumbledore and young Tom Riddle. WOW. I thought it was very scary…as it should have been.

Interesting that Twilight is higher than Harry Potter. It pretty much shows that the great Harry Potter era has subsided and has now graciously passed the baton on to the Twilight craze, though I dont see the having anywhere near the longevity of Harry Potter.

@KB Prez, I agree, the first HBP trailer was terrific. It was haunting and almost Omen like! But it was also intimate to mostly HP fans. The last trailer was absolutely mind blowing for cinema going audience though and deserves a place in the top 10. In fact I would truly rate it as number 2, personally. Dark Knight’s 2nd trailer deserving number 1.

These are just trailers. Obviously the HBP film will be waaaaaaaaaay better and make way more than both Twilight and it’s upcoming sequel combined.

@ Professor Potter… The Harry Potter era is not over and its not passing the baton on to anyone. HP for life

Hahaha squee! I got my name put in a news post! :)

well even though twilight is big right now, hp will be back up top soon

Posted by llol on December 02, 2008, 07:06 PM report to moderator

and what does that mean exactly??
to the best of my knowledge the dark knight turned out to be the average movie with H.Ledger outperforming everyone else, indiana jones should never have been made, Iron man, the Incredible Hulk and Hancock were only slightly above average with the latter being a total joke, sex and the city was so bad even the actors knew, and wanted was a total waste of time with too much jolie effect going on. the only ones as of yet unclear are twilight and HBP and I can make some safe bets about those too. Therefore, clearly having top trailer is totally irrelevant to anything. Even a horrible movie can have a nice trailer that is worth more than the actual movie.
Anyway, point is, i don’t get why they even bother with this stuff. I suggest they do a ‘top hair style’ and ‘best teeth’ and ‘best font used in trailer’ or some other equally ridiculous ‘tops’ listing.

Harry Potter should have been #1
it should have passed Twilight even if Twilight is huge right now it doesn’t matter
Harry Potter should have been FIRST
