"Deathly Hallows: Part 1" Takes In $125.1M Domestically, $330.1M Worldwide Opening Weekend

The "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" has taken the top spot at the box office this weekend, for the latest film grossed a total of $125.1 million in its first three days of release.  The AP reports that studio estimates put the film's international weekend gross at $205 million, bringing the worldwide estimated box office receipts at $330.1 million.  Quoteage:

In terms of domestic revenue, "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" came in ahead of the series' best previous debut of $102.7 million for 2005's "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire."
But factoring in today's higher admission prices, the latest movie had roughly the same size audience as the franchise's best previous draws — "Goblet of Fire" and 2001's "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," which launched the series. "Deathly Hallows" and those two earlier movies each sold around 16 million tickets in their first weekend.
Overseas markets for "Deathly Hallows" were led by a $28 million opening in Great Britain, $21.8 million in Germany, $14.8 million in Australia, $14 million in Japan and $12.3 million in Russia.

This was awesome – I’m so glad I went to the midnight showing :).

It wouldn’t make much sense to someone who hadn’t read the books, but to the majority of viewers who have actually read the amazingness that is DH, this has been the most intense of the films. The special effects and the greif are so very overwhelming.

As a series, they’re expected to pass the $6 billion mark by the end of this month. That will make them the highest grossing franchise ever. I can’t tell you how proud I am! lol.

finally got to see it tonight, hell yes definately worth the wait even though I was quizzed by two friends (who had not read any of the books) throughout the movie! I’ve offered to lend them the books in the hope they will read them before part 2. Will see it again during the week sans interruption.
