Potter Alert: Half-Blood Prince will Debut in 4,275 Theaters on Wednesday

July 14th, 2009

Warner. Bros. have announced that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will open in 4,275 theaters on Wednesday. That's 84 more venues than the 4,181 managed by Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in 2007, although the previous movie in the franchise expanded to 4,285 theaters on its first Friday. Assuming they manage to pick up a few more locations this time around, the movie should slot in at third place on the list of widest opening weekends. Breaking the all-time record looks unlikely at this point in time, but we'll keep you posted.
