The new Harry Potter movie enjoyed the biggest box office debut of the entire Harry Potter series and the fifth largest in movie history, making 61 million dollars on its first day! As of Sunday’s estimates.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One” made 24 million dollars in midnight Thursday screenings, followed by 37 million for the rest of the day Friday, according to Box Office Mojo.
If confirmed, the Potter movie will have had the fifth best opening day ever, behind the last two “Twilight” movies, “The Dark Knight,” and “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” Entertainment Weekly reported online.
The Friday figure would also be the biggest opening for the boy wizard franchise!
Entertainment Weekly forecast that “Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” could make up to 156 million dollars on its first weekend, although a more conservative estimate would put it at 130-140 million dollars.
My daughter, she’s never been a Harry Potter fan told me the other day that she wants to watch all the Harry Potter movies. She’s never watched one. She said she is thinking that it’s so lame that she’s never watched one since everyone else has… peer pressure? Ha.. so now I’ll be watchinga lot of Harry Potter!
