“4,285 locations and over 9,000 screens, the widest domestic release pattern ever for any Warner Bros. film. As part of this opening, the film will be shown digitally on 579 screens in 325 locations, more than any Warner Bros. film to date.” With showings in many cities starting at midnight, the film will also have the largest number of day-and-date international openings of any film in the franchise, with simultaneous releases in 44 markets worldwide beginning July 11, 2007. This far surpasses any of the previous Harry Potter release patterns, almost doubling the 24-market release pattern of the previous record holder, “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.” In addition, Warner Bros. has generated the greatest overall number of prints for “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” with over 22,000 prints going to exhibitors around the world.

On the IMAX front, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” is breaking industry records, going up on more IMAX screens than any previous release. The film will open on 126 IMAX screens worldwide – 91 of those in the US, with many featuring the final scenes of the film in IMAX 3D.
