Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is officially the sixth highest opening weekend movie of all time, taking in an impressive $125.1 million during it’s opening extended weekend, just short of this year’s top movie Iron Man 2 which took in just under $130 million during it’s open weekend take.
According to current numbers the Harry Potter flick took in $330.1 million worldwide since Friday’s midnight shows.
