Post Deathly Hallows: Part 2 breaks domestic & international box office weekend records

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 shattered the opening weekend domestic box office records, taking in $168.6 million in the U.S. and Canada, this weekend. The final installment in the Harry Potter series brought in $476 million, also breaking the opening weekend box office internationally. The previous domestic and international records were held by Warner Bros.' The Dark Knight and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, respectively.



In terms of international market breakdown (converted to United States Dollars), Deathly Hallows: Part 2 took in $36.6 million in the UK, $26.7 million in Australia, $25.7 million in Germany, $23.9 million in France, $19.5 million in Russia, $15.1 million in Italy, $11 million in Korea, and $21.5 million in Japan. Heads of Warner Bros had this to say on the record weekend.

Quote:
Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution, stated, “These numbers are amazing, but they are only part of the story. It is impossible to quantify how thrilled and grateful we all are that both critics and audiences—especially loyal Harry Potter fans—continue to support the film. This is the culmination of an extraordinary decade, and a reflection of the hard work and dedication of many, many people on both sides of the camera, beginning with the brilliant J.K. Rowling, as well as producer David Heyman. We applaud them all.”

Veronika Kwan-Rubinek, President of International Distribution, remarked, “Harry Potter is truly a cultural phenomenon the world over. Whether in German, French, Japanese, Russian, or any language, international audiences have embraced the Harry Potter films over the years, with the powerful finale punctuating just how special the property is. We congratulate everyone associated with the films on this monumental achievement.”

I really hope that Harry Potter beats Avatar for highest grossing film ever. Avatar was plotless garbage with bland characters. Deathly Hallows Part 2 and the Harry Potter franchise as a whole successfully combined great characters, story, and spectacle. That is something which most movies fail at, as more often then not, filmmakers focus only on spectacle.

Great *-* Nothing less than expected, though...
And I really hope it beats Avatar as well. Just because it's HP
