2011 Summer Movie Showdown

Posts: 3666
At this point Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II will have no trouble being the highest grossing HP film. I still just wonder how front loaded it'll be (although either way it looks like it's set to take the summer box office crown).

It beat The Dark Knight's opening weekend record, but TDK had stronger Saturday and Sunday numbers. TDK's Friday to Saturday drop was 29.1%, and its Saturday to Sunday drop was 8.1%. Deathly Hallows Part II saw respective drops of 53.5% and 21.6%.

It out performed estimates a tad making the weekend total actually $169.2m. Obviously Potter wont have the same legs as TDK, but it has been doing brilliantly both domestically and worldwide.
