As much as I want HP7 to beat the crap out of TF3 in the box office, I just can't see it happening. People aren't pissed off enough to avoid TF3. Plus, the trailers are epic.

Oh yea, updated numbers:

The Harry Potter franchise consistently averages just under $300 million domestically. Deathly Hallows Part I made $295 million domestically, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen did $402 million domestically. My money is on Dark of the Moon.
