“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2″ has already raised $ 25 million in the country for advance ticket sales, according to “Warner Bros”. (Variety first reported the news.) Most of the sales would have been for projections of midnight, Deathly Hallows giving a legitimate shot of beating the record set midnight $ 30 million last year for “The Twilight Saga Eclipse”. The latest Harry Potter film also points his wand at another box office milestone, as the biggest opening day (now The Twilight Saga: New Moon with $ 72.7 million) and the weekend’s biggest opening (The Dark Knight, with $ 158.4 million).
“Deathly Hallows” opens Friday morning with midnight screenings. The 3-D film also opens this week in all major foreign markets, except China (where it opens on August 4), which means the world record opening $ 394 million (established by Prince Harry Potter and the mestizo) could also be in danger.
