Family-friendly films dominated the box office over the US Thanksgiving weekend, with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I bringing in another $50.3 million in grosses for $220.3 million to date.  The seventh film in the series is holding up well, taking strategic advantage of the holiday weekend to increase its grosses rapidly.  The film's weekend numbers were down 60%, but this is not surprising considering the film had a massive opening the week prior.
