‘Deathly Hallows, Part 2’ makes box office magic

Opening day of final Harry Potter film most profitable day in Hollywood history

by

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 broke first-day box office records this weekend, taking in more than $80 million in domestic sales. The last installment in the series also broke records outside the U.S. for first-day sales in countries such as Australia, Italy, Sweden and France. Box office analysts say North American ticket sales over the three-day weekend will reach $125 to $150 million. If predictions are correct, the final Harry Potter movie will be the highest grossing of the series, and will put the film within reach of the title of biggest opening weekend ever.
