“Harry Potter” shatters IMAX box office record


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Yet another record topples before the mighty “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.”

David Yates’ massive conclusion to the eight-film “Potter” franchise just broke the highest opening weekend for an IMAX film, the latest benchmark cleared by the spectacular sequel.

The last “Potter” film grossed a reported $15.2 million from domestic IMAX showings over its opening weekend for what EW.com reports is “a sizzling $55,000 per theater average.”

In addition to breaking the IMAX number, “Potter” now holds the highest-grossing single day earning ($92 million), the highest-grossing midnight earning ($43.5 million), the highest domestic opening weekend ($169.2M) and the highest global opening weekend ($478.2M).

How high do you think Harry Potter will fly in his final theatrical go-round?
