“Harry Potter” Posts Big Opening Night Numbers

Posted Friday November 19, 2010 3:28 PM GMT

It’s unlikely that anyone was surprised at the massive outpouring of theatergoers for last night’s midnight release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1,” and as it turns out ticket sales were huge.

The latest “Harry Potter” flick has proven to be the biggest seller so far, with a total of $24 million in sales at the 3,003 locations.

In terms of IMAX tickets sold, Daniel Radcliffe & Co. bested “Eclipse” for the biggest totals, scoring $1.4 million.

Still, “Harry Potter” wasn’t able to top the enormous record set by “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” at just over $30 million.
