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.

Hmmm…. How do you make that scar sign? I tried using “ϟ”, didn’t really work. Anyway… GO HARRY POTTER!! I will wait patiently for DH part 2. In the mean time, I will read the series for the 9th time… never gets old, never gets boring =)

OH what?! I worked? LOL, seems like it works after i post the comment, how silly of me. Anyway Quote: “Fred: Oh get out of the way, Percy. Harry’s in a hurry.
George: Yeah, he’s off to the Chamber of Secrets for a cup of tea with his fanged servant.”

Remember, folks: Only Dumbledor knew that Harry might be a horcrux. Harry might have suspected this, but only near his walk to face Voldemort in the forest. Therefore, from what Ron knew there were three more horcruxes to destroy.

Your absolutely right however the audience still think it is a mistake. The scene between slughorn and riddle. The audience knows there are 7 – 3. The ring, the locket, and diary. 7 – 3 = 4. Ron is a idiot and said 3 to go.
cup, diadem, nagini. Harry may not be a horcrux. But the audience will most likely see my reasoning and think the fill makers made a mistake

Yeah but the audience assumed there were 7 total because of the dream

@chris_anderson; anyone who has read the DH book or any of Rowling’s interviews knows Harry is not a horcrux. And those who are just following the films know Voldemort wanted to split his soul into 7. 6 Horcruxes and his remnant soul. The diary, ring and necklace have been destroyed, so as Ron correctly points out that leaves 3 Horcruxes. The film (as opposed to the book), has the trio clueless as to what the horcruxes might be. DH2 will simply have the trio find out what the last 3 horcruxes are, as well as where they are, as they go along.

Harry’s having to ‘die’ to be rid of Voldemort’s soul is another issue, and has nothing to do with horcruxes.

Harry felt as though he were carrying some kind of talisman inside his chest over the following two weeks, a glowing secret that supported him through Umbridge's classes and even made it possible for him to smile blandly as he looked into her horrible bul
