The fifth Harry Potter film proved the biggest earner this weekend, pulling in $77.4 million in the US alone, raising the movie's domestic earnings to $140 million. Since its Wednesday opening, domestically, Harry Potter 5 has earned nearly as much as Goblet of Fire made in its first week ($146 million).
OOTP also grossed $190.3 million in 44 other countries, bringing its international total to $330 million.
“We're in the middle of summer, and we just said why not, because kids are out of school,” said Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner Bros. “It certainly turned out to be the right decision.”
