Can Harry Beat The Bat?

Will Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part 1 beat The Dark Knight‘s record opening weekend box office take? With the movie opening on a record number of screens amid a wave of excitement, it’s not impossible.

Deathly Hallows‘ midnight opening last night included a record 3700 locations, with the wide opening today happening on over 9000 screens across America, including 239 IMAX theaters – almost 100 more than the last installment – and reports that many IMAX theaters are having to add additional screenings to keep up with demand. With the movie responsible for 96% of Fandango’s online ticket sales and 94% of MovieTickets.com’s current business, Deadline Hollywood is guesstimating a weekend haul of somewhere between $130-150 million dollars, putting it within reach of The Dark Knight‘s $158.4 million. If enough IMAX theaters add more screenings quickly enough, Harry may depose Batman as king of the weekend… Well, until the release of The Dark Knight Rises, at least.
