The Lord of the Rings was the most popular film around the world this weekend, but was still no match for Harry Potter!
The first Lord of the Rings film, The Fellowship of the Ring, took £31.4 million in the United States and Canada between Friday and Sunday, making it the box office number one.
But Harry Potter took £65.7 million in it's US opening weekend back in November, more than double the takings of Lord of the Rings.
No match for Harry Potter
The film company New Line, who made the fantasy film, said that they never expected it to match Harry potter.
