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.

I’m not surprised, went to the midnight movie and plan on going back this week. It was awesome and I thought they did a great job of sticking to most of the important parts of the book

This is cool, especially since GoF and DH1 are my favorite of the films. GoF been my fav since it came out. I was really hoping HBP would be better (since it’s my other favorite of the books) but I felt parts of it lacking. DH1 though was a roller coaster and I can’t wait for part 2!

"Awesome"and “amazing” truly describe the film. But would it have killed the screenwriter to include Dudley’s appreciation of Harry’s saving him from the Dementors? Or Harry giving the fake locket to Kreacher? And what happened to the story of Ariana? And no Viktor Krum at the wedding? Etc, etc. But — great acting, photography, and special effects.

And then an unearthly and beautiful sound filled the air... It was coming from every thread of the light-spun web vibrating around Harry and Voldemort. It was a sound Harry recognized, though he had heard it only once before in his life: phoenix song.[br]
