Harry Potter Falls Short of Twilight's Midnight Record

Harry Potter Falls Short of Twilight's Midnight Record

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 brought in $24 million domestically from its midnight showings, which falls short of the midnight grosses for both The Twilight Saga‘s New Moon and Eclipse.

According to Deadline, Deathly Hallows has set the third highest midnight gross of any movie ever and also the highest for a Harry Potter movie.

Eclipse set the record earlier this year with $30 million at midnight, which broke the previous Twilight film New Moon‘s record of $26.3 million.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince brought in $22 million at midnight in 2009.

Warner Bros. is expecting that Deathly Hallows – Part 1 could open to a massive $135 million this weekend, which would shatter the opening weekend record for a Potter film!
