Harry Potter Easily Top Box Office Winner
Warner Bros.’ Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince easily won the top spot at box office this weekend, yet the bulk of its winnings came earlier in its five-day debut.
The 6th installment of the fantasy wizard movie drew in $79.5 million in Friday-Sunday to soar to the top of the domestic rankings. That raised the PG-rated movie’s total box office for the five-day spread to the highest ever for the franchise at $159.7 million.
Worldwide Harry brought in $396.7 million with $237 million from 85 foreign territories since Wednesday, the biggest five-day overseas tally ever.
