So Harry Potter has not only conquered evil sorcerers and a tough academic experience at Hogwarts but he has also conquered audiences across North America.
The eighth and final film of the smash series Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-Part II grossed over 25 million dollars in the country; this was made from the midnight run alone according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Harry Potter then marked a record by making $168.6 million in the U.S. and Canada in just three days, shattering the 3 day opening of the Dark Knight. “This was monumental, as it seems everyone wanted to be a part of the discussion, everyone wanted to say goodbye to dear friends, and everyone wanted to experience the magic on the big screen one more time,” stated Jeff Bock, box-office analyst for Exhibitor Relations.
When the film premiered last weekend, fans made sure to dress appropriately Hogwarts style. They came in their best Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley costumes and had their proper wizard equipment. Each film has only gotten bigger and better than the last and caused an enormous growth of fans since the first film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001).
After days since its premiere, the film continues to be sold out in theaters all over the world, and is even being called a “pop-culture must-see.”
