The question this weekend wasn’t “Would Deathly Hallows Part 2 have a big weekend?” but rather, “How big a weekend would Deathly Hallows Part 2 have?” and the answer is the biggest opening weekend of all time. The final Harry Potter movie made $168.5 million beating the The Dark Knight’s $158.4 million opening weekend. Deathly Hallows Part 2 also had the highest ever midnight release and the highest opening day gross (it made $43.1 million in midnight shows and $92.1 million on Friday). Obviously this is also the best opening for the Harry Potter franchise as well, beating Deathly Hallows Part 1’s opening of $125 million. In a far, far distant second, Tranformers: Dark of the Moon made another $21 million, putting it’s total over $300 million. Horrible Bosses took the third spot with $17.6 million, Zookeeper took fourth with $12.3 million and Cars 2 rounded out the top 5 with $8.3 million. Not surprisingly, Winnie the Pooh suffered from opening opposite Deathly Hallows, coming in sixth place with $8 million. It’s the second best opening for the franchise but it’s probably going to be quickly forgotten in the coming weeks.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
