It's the buzz, not the hype, that is likely to produce the biggest opening box office ever for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, several analysts suggested today (Friday). "There is really a groundswell from the movie-going public, as opposed to just hype created by the studio's marketing of the film," Tom Borys, president of box-office trackers ACNielsen EDI, told Bloomberg News. In Canada, Joanne Fraser, corporate affairs vice-president for the Famous Players theater chain, told the Toronto Star: "The buzz for this film has been like nothing we have seen before." Today's Wall Street Journal forecast that the box office will be driven by the "ferocious loyalty" of the Potter fans. Many of those fans lined up at theaters Thursday night to be the first to see the movie at midnight screenings. Virtually all were adults (although several brought their children, presumably impatient fans). Fifty-one-year-old Marilyn Senders of Plymouth Meeting, PA told the Associated Press: "I loved it. ... I can't believe it was two-and-a-half hours. It felt like 10 minutes." But English teacher Suzie Thetard of Normal, IL told AP: "I still love the book more. ... There's just so much more to it. Little things that don't make the movie bad but enrich the book so much."
