    Now, I wouldn’t expect Inception to do Dark Knight numbers, but Chris Nolan doing a sci-fi actioner is definitely going to pull out the comic book fanboys that Marvel needs for Thor, and to a lesser extent, Harry Potter and The Avengers are drawing on somewhat overlapping fanbases…

    I would bet money Thor gets moved, but The Avengers will probably stand firm for a while. If the next few Marvel films don’t do so hot, expect it to move, too.

    (Green Lantern vs. the Smurfs is probably pretty safe counterprogramming, on the other hand.)

    Honestly I’m more concerned about that deadly overlap between Sherlock Holmes and Alvin and the Chipmunks.

    Even if upcoming Marvel films do well, Marvel still may be well advised not to put the Avengers up against Deathly Hollows II. As someone that falls squarely in the “overlap” category, Deathly Hollows II is bound to be more of an unstoppable Juggernaut then the Avengers will be.

    I mean, both are all-star casts, and both will be visual spectacles. However, (if they do it right) Deathly Hollows II is more than likely going to be the more fascinating of the 2.

    Then again, I think they really botched Order of the Phoenix when the brought that to the screen. If Half-Blood Prince is a let-down in the same way that Order was, then Potter may be the one that needs to think about shifting weekends.

    All that being said, if the come out the same weekend, I might just have to spend the whole weekend at the movie theater.

    Honestly, I’m not sure it matters whether or not Deathly Hallow is done ‘right’ or not – being attached to the Potter franchise makes it a sure-fire money-maker regardless. The Avengers will be a slightly – but not much – harder sell. Of the two, though, I figure DH is the larger property, so I’d be surprised if it decided to move.
