(Updated) Potter Update: Warner Bros. Reports $58,175,412 Opening Day

July 16th, 2009

Update: We incorrectly stated that Half-Blood Prince's opening day was the record for a "non-holiday-weekend-influenced Wednesday". That record is still held by Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Warner Bros. has announced the official opening day gross for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: $58,175,412. That's the fourth-biggest single day in history, behind the opening days for The Dark Knight, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Spider-man 3. It's also the second-biggest non-holiday-weekend-influenced Wednesday of all time, behind Revenge of the Fallen.
