Variety is reporting that the midnight box office results for "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" are $24 million:

Warner Bros. kicked off what likely will be a boffo opening weekend for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1," launching the film at 3,700 midnight runs for a late-night take of $24 million.
Pic screened at a record-setting 238 domestic Imax screenings, contributing $1.4 million, which surpassed the company's previous $1 million midnight record holder "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse."
Overall, "Hallows" fell short of catching "Eclipse's" $30 million late-night record, though that film benefited from a more rabid young femme demo and a shorter runtime, as well as its less restrictive summer berth.
Warner will screen "Hallows" this weekend at 4,125 U.S. locations.

DH Part 2 will do even better than this, I am sure. I knew so many people that wanted to go to the midnight show, but couldn’t, because their parents didn’t want them at the theatre at 12 o’clock at night. If it had been in the summer, they all would have been able to go. I was lucky that my parents are quite lenient, and let my skip school the next day.

I’m a Twilight fan, and even I am ashamed that Harry Potter didn’t beat Eclipse. The Harry Potter series is far better than the Twilight Saga. Part II will beat Twilight, since it will be in the summer, and the very end.

Judging by the 7:30 pm show I attended, Deathly Hallows must have broken records in Canada! The place was sold out, and the people in line were all having a blast before the movie. I loved the film, and hope to see ti again soon.

I am so glad I saw it at midnight. The movie was great and all the people there added to the atmosphere. I hope I get a chance to see it again soon.
