“Harry Potter” shatters Hong Kong’s single-day record


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Another country, another box office record shattered by “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.”

After breaking single-day and opening-weekend records in the United States, David Yates’ final “Potter” film also destroyed international records. The most recent region to report new box-office records, Hong Kong, noted that “Potter” debuted with “a record-smashing opening day” by posting HK$6.3 million ($808,000) on its opening day, THR notes. That made it Hong Kong’s non-holiday, highest-grossing, opening day ever.

But “Potter” could not beat the opening weekend record notched by “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” which opened in the region a few weeks earlier. Though as THR notes, Michael Bay’s sequel “opened on a Wednesday, and that five-day weekend included a local public holiday (July 1), when the film grossed HK$10 million on a single day.”

Still, Warner isn’t crying in their soup, as “Potter” has earned an estimated $475 million worldwide in its opening weekend and has set its sights on the all-time highest-grossing record held by James Cameron’s “Avatar.” Can it catch it? Surpass it? We shall see.
