Friday Box Office – HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS – PART 1 Conjures $61.2 Million Opening

     November 20, 2010


Warner Brothers was expected to collect a pile of galleons with the launch of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and that is precisely what happened.  It’s, like, MAGIC!  After posting a franchise high of $24 million with its Thursday midnight debuts, the penultimate Potter took in an estimated $61.2 million on Friday from its 4,125 locations.  If that number holds, it would put Deathly Hallows 1 at number five on the list of all-time opening days; just shy of the $62 million of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.  Weekend projections for The Deathly Hallows 1 are currently in the $140 million range, which would put the film fourth in terms of all-time weekend records.  Oddly enough, there was another movie foolish enough to launch this weekend. Lionsgate’s The Next Three Days opened in fifth place on Friday with an estimated $2.2 million from its 2,564 locations.  I would say that Harry Potter had ‘cursed’ the chances of this Russell Crowe thriller but, honestly, you would first have to know that something existed before you cared enough to curse it.  We’ll have full details on the Harry Potter box office tomorrow.

    You realize that megamind made more money than unstoppable, so it should be higher on the list, right?
