It looks like "one or two" people decided to check out the new Harry Potter movie this past weekend:
The seventh Harry Potter got off to an enchanting overseas start this weekend, earning an estimated $205 million on 19,000 screens in 91 markets (including $4.2 million from 101 IMAX screens). That's the highest foreign opening for a movie released outside of the summer season, and it's the fourth-biggest international opening ever.
Add in its domestic take ($125.1 million), and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 has already made a staggering $330.1 million worldwide.
That's a lot of cash.
I would like some of that, please.
