    I am really looking forward to Twilight but nothing can beat HP. Sorry.

  2. Sydney says:

    I mean honestly I am freakin sick of the comparison of Harry Potter and Twilight.

    They are so different both on screen and on paper.

  3. katie says:

    We all know that most of us are going to see both movies….probably more than once. I however, am looking forward to Twilight more….mmm…Edward and Jacob (even if he is not in it as much)!

  4. Tiffany says:

    i’m definitely gonna see both…but twilight is more exciting for me…HP is kinda dull now that i can ogle edward cullen. xD those pics though that they had on this website? whats up with those?! haha

  5. Amylouwho says:

    I voted for HP. I will see Twilight in the theaters and have never been to see HP (although I enjoy them and own them on DVD). I think that overall HP will bring in more money. So, even though my finger was itching to vote for TW, I realistically voted for HP. Go Twilight!

  6. Jessica loves Edward says:

    I’m so not seeing Harry Potter in theaters… I absolutely refuse!! I personally don’t care for the HP movies, they are horribly done (in my point of view). Anyway, Twilight all the way!

  7. Sa'Misty says:

    Twilight will SO kick some wizard butt :)

  8. lizzie says:

    Soooooooooooooooooooooooooo sick of Harry Potter and Twilight comparison……Because Twilights way better……..because of Edward

  9. Tracy says:

    Gag. I *hate* when people put Harry Potter-like expectations on Twilight. There’s no comparison, HP will beat Twilight in a heartbeat. Sorry.

    HOWEVER, for a film with roughly a $40-million budget, I believe Twilight will surprise a lot of movie executives. It will do really well for what is basically considered a small-budget film nowadays. It’s just unfortunate that when it doesn’t have a $100-million opening that the press and others will be saying, “See, I told you it was no good.” Gosh, stop putting unreasonable expectations on this film!

  10. Kate says:

    Ok, Twilight in my opinion is WAY better, however, Harry Potter has a more varied fan base, and a LOT more fans because there are fans of the books, and fans of the movies. But Twilight is growing, and it is naturally awesome, so it could be a close one…

  11. Fleur says:

    I’m sick of the comparsion bewteen Twilight and Harry Potter too! They’re both amazing books, which are set in completley different worlds.

    Twilight is amazing because it’s a romance and it’s near reality ( except for the vampire/werewovles OR shape shifters ) bit. But Harry Potter is a compeltely different world, which you can get absorbed into.

    They’re both amazing, different and unique, written by two amazing authors.

  12. swimmerchick1977 says:

    Harry Potter will beat Twilight, hands down! The Twilight series is good and is building momentum, but Harry Potter has been around MUCH longer and has a much bigger fan-base.

    There will be no contest at the movies.

  13. Teri says:

    Goodness…all the HP vs. Twilight needs to stop already! I’m going to see both. I love both. I think it’s impossible to tell which will do better at the box office. It could go either way.

    Twilight might win, simply because it’s new and fresh. Audiences might be excited to see something new. Plus, the fans base is constantly growing, while HP’s fan base is pretty set by now. (And like the article said, Twilight is sexy. Sex sales…). On the other hand, it’s much newer than HP, so it doesn’t have as large of a fan base. So this might give it lower sales.

    Consequently, you can say that HP will win because of it’s gigantic fan base. It squashes Twilight in fandom size. However, you can also say that since HP is older (and the excitement has died down with Book 7 being over and done with), that people aren’t as crazy about it as they were years ago when HP was still at it’s prime. And lets face it, lots of people are getting tired of the HP movies because they don’t stay very true to the books all the time.

    So all in all, it’s hard to tell who will come out on top. I personally hope it’s a draw!

  15. Erin(: says:

    AH! I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HOW PEOPLE DO THIS! CAN’T THEY JUST GET BOTH SIDES OF THE*enter cruss word here* THING! IT TICKS ME OFF!

  16. Erin(: says:

    Can’t people except the fact that the books and movies only have 1 thing in common! That is Rob(hottie!). If you think about it…this wouldn’t be happening if HP or Twilight hadn’t got so big.And If JKR wrote and published her books right after Lord of the Rings(i hate the hobbit!)everyone would be saying “JKR the next Tolkin?” I HATE IT! people need to get over themselves and except they both rock! NO MATTER WHAT! HP is the BEST fansty and TW is the BEST romance! Goly G! I love vamps and wizs but when they are compared I put up a wall to block out how they are being compared repetedly! I wish that we can live in harmony and LOVE BOTH series! Can’t some people just LOVE BOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Twifanatic Amanda says:

    Hahaha this article is irrelavant now! Harry Potter was pushed back until July of next year haha

  18. sou says:

    I’m so sick of the comparisons. These movies are NOTHING a like. Their not even aimed towards the same audiences.

    BUT ya, i really think they both will do well. Just because I know a lot of HP fans (including moi) LOVES twilight so ya..
    I don’t know about ya’ll but i’m going to see both!!!!

  19. lief says:

    chek me and my friend out http://www.youtube.com/thosetoo

  20. lief says:

    harry potter will win but i love twilight the movie dosent looke good

  21. bryna says:

    For ur information twilight is sp much better than HP. HP is old school. The description in the books are not as detailed as twilight and twilight is so much more addictive. HP gets a double boo if it is compared to twilight….

  22. Anthony says:

    I’m so sick of hearing about Twilight,… it has nothing I repeat nothing on Harry Potter. This story of Harry Potter is one of the greatest stories ever told, it transcends time, age and gender. Unless you are a 14 year old girl or have the mentality of one,.. I’m sure you agree,…. HARRY POTTER ALL THE WAY!!!!!!

    stupid vampies!!!!

  23. mysterygirl1901 says:

    twilight wins! :) sure harrys a good book, but twilight has more followers- it already beat hp in the best sellers list

  24. TwoMinutes... says:

    i dont think they are similar but i believe twilight is way better. the movie didnt do the book justice at all but it was still really good and the harry potter movies have gone down hill since the third one. the last one was just ridiculous.

  25. Alyssa says:

    twilight sucks, harry potter will live on, the obsession of twi-ness is getting out of hand.

  26. Sharkie says:

    Harry Potter will always win…
    Any Twilight fans hear of: Avada Kadavra! Or, Crucio! Or, Petrificus Totalus! Seriously, Harry Potter would beat Twilight in a fight. On paper, Harry Potter. Movies, Harry Potter. Twilight is not deep enough. Harry Potter has a secret mystery, almost. HARRY. POTTER. >:D

  27. Tara says:

    “Harry Potter is all about confronting fears, finding inner strength, and doing what is right in the face of advercity, while TWILIGHT IS ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO HAVE A BOYFRIEND”

    Love HP!!!!!!!
