Records Fall to Harry Potter Finale

July 15th, 2011

For those who were worried that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 wouldn't be able to live up to the hype at the box office, those fears were put to rest today. Its midnight showings brought in a record-breaking $43.5 million. Record-breaking is an understatement, as the previous record was held by The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Some analysts are predicting an $80 million opening day, which would top the previous single day record, while the opening weekend record is in serious trouble of falling. Over on IMAX it brought in $2.0 million during the midnight showings, overtaking Part 1's record of $1.4 million. Look for more records to fall as the weekend continues.
