Emma Watson: 'Harry Potter' Breaks Opening Day Record!

Emma Watson leaves her hotel as she heads to a movie theater to catch a showing of her new movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 on Friday (July 15) in New York City.

The 21-year-old actress went shopping in Soho earlier in the week and made a stop at the Chanel store.

Harry Potter is going to be breaking a bunch of records this weekend! The film grossed $43.5 million at midnight screenings, shattering the $30 million record set by The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

The film is also expected to make $95 million in its opening day alone, breaking a record of $72 million set by The Twilight Saga: New Moon, according to Deadline.

FYI: Emma is wearing the Wilfred for Aritzia Chevalier Blazer.

Good, Harry Potter is actually deserving of its achievements, unlike Twilight.

95 mil on opening day, I’d say it’s a lock that DH part 2 breaks the Dark Knight’s record for the highest grossing opening weekend ever.

please stop combaring harry potter and the twiliht saga it is a fact that harry potter series do not need a word like saga to show that it is a legend!!!



I love you HP. thanks for the past amazing 13 years . I hope someday in the future, you three star in another movie together. (: what you gave in the past 13 years will stay for the next 100+ generations. You all have such amazing hearts !!!

XOXO !!!

just wait until Braking Dawn !haaaa:D

just wait until Breaking Dawn !haaaa:D


HP doesn’t need a showmance between its actors to keep the fans. But HP fans aren’t horny teens and middle aged housewives who live their fantasies through fictional story.

All the scenes people like you are interested in are already leaked. I see Summit is selling their film as soft core porn. It makes your fanfiction become real at least on screen.




If Twilight bet all the records before i’m pretty sure we can do it again there are still two movies to come, never under estimate the twilight fandom!

Twilight rules over those midgety,hobbitsky,HP actors including that fat legs Emma.

Oh, she is so pretty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She’s put on weight -in addition to being a college dropout.

Ever since pictures of her looking stressed at Brown surfaced, she hasn’t looked particularly happy (except when posing on the red carpet.)

Methinks she’s going to have trouble up ahead without having these movies to fall back on.. There will be an identity crisis, and she will have to finally deal with her parents’ divorce. Wouldn’t be surprised if she was out of the film business by the time she’s 30.

I watched the movie last night and I cried my heart out! IT WAS BEAUTIFUL, everything about it was fantastic, magical… I can’t even…. It was great to see Alan Rickman and Maggie Smith having more screen time and opportunity to show THE ACTORS they are!

She looks so cute here and I LOVE that she’s going to see HP again at the theaters. I would flip out if I turned around in my seat and saw her sitting there.


They showed that twilight trailer in my theater at midnight and the audience laughed, because it was so ridiculous.

I’m pretty sure you crazy twi-hards will go in bucketloads to see it at midnight, but considering Potter has the help of 3D and also more fans, I wouldn’t bet it breaking the record. If anything is going to break it again, it will be The Dark Knight Rises or maybe The Hobbit Part 1.
