Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Casts Spell Over Box Office
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 2) has broken the record for the biggest box office first day sales in the US & Canada according to initial estimates.
The film in the final instalment of the Harry Potter movies brings to an end the movie franchise that has clocked up an estimated $6 billion worldwide in box office takings.
It looks like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 2) will add considerably to that total, Warner Bros. are reporting initial first day sales of $92.1 million in North America.
This beats the previous record holder, The Twilight Saga (New Moon) which pulled in a measly $72.7 million on it’s opening day.
The seventh and final book in JK Rowlings epic tale of a young wizard was split into two films for the cinema. Some may say that was a cynical effort to extend the movie franchise and pull in even more money, others might say that it was necessary to fully convey the books final storyline.
Whatever the reason, Harry Potter fans have flocked to see it, queuing for hours to be amongst the first to get in. Some flew across the world to get to the premiere in London. And they loved it. Many have been watching for 10 years of their young lives.
In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 2), the battle between good and evil becomes an all out war and Harry Potter has a showdown with Lord Voldemort.
