Weekend Report: 'Harry' Makes History

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 soared into the record books with the highest-grossing opening weekend ever. The series finale drew an estimated $168.55 million on around 11,000 screens at 4,375 locations, dethroning The Dark Knight's $158.4 million.

Deathly Hallows Part 2's first weekend flew past the previous franchise high of $125 million, posted by Deathly Hallows Part 1 last November, and it topped the franchise in terms of estimated attendance as well. While its opening gross also out-distanced The Dark KnightSpider-Man 3($151.1 million), The Twilight Saga: New Moon ($142.8 million), Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest($135.6 million) and the first Spider-Man ($114.8 million),Deathly Hallows Part 2's estimated opening attendance was less than those titles, ranking sixth overall.

After conjuring the opening day record on Friday ($92.1 million), Deathly Hallows Part 2 saw the steepest Friday-to-Saturday drop on record for a non-holiday first weekend, falling 53 percent to an estimated $42.85 million. Its Saturday slotted ninth among the top-grossing Saturdays of all time. Distributor Warner Bros. projected a 22 percent Saturday-to-Sunday decline to $33.6 million, which would rank eighth on the all-time Sunday grosses chart.

Deathly Hallows Part 2 marked Harry Potter's first foray into 3D, and it made a splash with the broadest 3D launch ever (3,100-plus locations, including 274 in IMAX). However, the majority of moviegoers still opted to see the movie in the standard ("2D") format. 3D accounted for 43 percent of the gross, which was a lower share than Transformers: Dark of the Moon's 60 percent at the same point but in the ballpark of most of this summer's other big movies. Still, at an estimated $72.5 million, that translated to the second biggest-grossing 3D opening yet, behind Alice in Wonderland (2010)'s $81.3 million. In IMAX alone, Deathly Hallows Part 2 delivered the top-grossing start ever, generating $15.5 million versus Alice's second-place $12.2 million.

According to Warner Bros., 54 percent of Deathly Hallows Part 2's audience was female, compared to 57 percent for the last movie, and 45 percent was under 25 years old, compared to 56 percent for the last movie.

Seece ye know the original Star Wars (so Episode 4 as its known as now) is number 2 of all time behind Gone With The Wind in ticket sales in America.

Then Episode 1 is the biggest ticket seller of the past 20 years barring Avatar & Titanic and Episode 3 is way up there. Star Wars as a whole is massive in America....unfortunately all the movies were released before the massive *overseas* (meaning any country not america according to boxofficemojo) explosion took place! So I always say it'll be fun to see records fall when Episode 7 launches later on in the decade (oh its happening star wars haterzz).

That's impressive! But with ticket prices being more expensive and with 3D playing a decent role in sales, it's a no-brainer that this movie beat TDK. Of course, the TDKR will take the crown once again due to prices being higher and 3D. Still, HP is one of the most successful franchise of all time! I went to watch Transformers 3 yesterday and the theater was PACKED with people waiting to watch HP.
