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).
