Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Tops Twilight

Harry-Potter-And-The-Deathly-Hallows-Part-2-Free-Wallpaper-2


Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 made $42.5 million at midnight screenings in the US and Canada, according to Warner Bros. The previous record was about $30 million, set in 2009 by ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon.’ Fans lined up early on Thursday for the shows.

It will earn more than $80 million domestically by the end of Friday night. The previous record for single-day receipts was also ‘New Moon,’ at $72.7 million. It on track to break the all-time opening weekend record of $158.4 million, set by ‘The Dark Knight’ in 2008.

After opening in 26 foreign markets Wednesday & an additional 17 on Thursday, the movie took in $82.5 million internationally in two days. 39 percent higher than ‘Deathly Hallows Part 1′ generated in its first two days in same countries.

    For me. Twilight (the Books) are okay, but they should have found a better cast or something. The first movie was good, but the rest…WOW…All I can say is thank God for books. And I have never gotten through a SINGLE Harry Potter book. It just isn’t my cup of tea. The closets book I ever read to HP is Witch and Wizard (which IMO is written better than HP) either than that, I’m more of a crime and mystery reader. I like books that put you to on the ed

    James Patterson is not a very good writer. He sells and teens like his stuff, but he is not a good writer. I tried reading his Max Ride books but they are boring and Max is annoying. Fang is the only redeemable character.

    I agree. Harry Potter is about magic. Twilight is about vampires and love. Really? Different stories. People just compare them because they are fantasy. Unless their is another moive about wizards that is big like harry potter than you can compare.
    ———-
    HP is about love too, a lot of people forget that. Romantic type love is only one kinda of love. Fantasy is it own type of genre, it’s like comparing two chick flicks or action thrillers. The story line might be totally different (should be two or it would just be consider a rip off) but they aim for the same crowd. Fantasy movies and books are for people who like the idea of escaping to another world, whether that be a school of magic or a boyfriend that’s a vampire.

    BOOKS ARE AWESOME. That is all.

    I know there is Love in Harry Potter, but there is love in Twilight? and romance? I read the books, but all I found was a stalker and a girl who thought it was romantic. And a 17 year old who imprints on a new born. If anything the most romantic couple there were Jasper and Alice.

    Went to the midnight premiere and it wa INCREDIBLE! all time best movie ive ever seen by far. Cant get over it. I lov twilight, but i think the acting in twilight suckssssss… As like evryone does! I wish kristen would get booted off, she cant act worth crap. As much as i love both, hp is 1000000x better! Its a legacy and the biggest series of movies evr or in a long tome and is part of our generation. Twilights just good. Nuff said…

    Yes! Finally the top two movies for best weekend opening will actually be good movies.
    Even if Twilight’s last movies beat this record they definitely won’t beat it in ratings. Just by looking at the trailer, anyone can tell the film won’t be good. There was no reason to break the last Twilight into two movies besides the money.
    Anyways even if Twilight does beat it, the Dark Knight Rises will crush it!

    Are you surprised that Harry Potter beat Twilight? I used to be a Twihard until Harry Potter came back into my life and I was mature enough to read the books.
    The movie was amazing, and my OTP was paired together (should have taken the notes, Rowling) but anyway. There were some things that got my hypes up but were just dropped. Like the story about the Dumbledore sister and Fred’s death and everything like that. ESPECIALLY Ron and Hermione’s kiss – it was played out MUCH more in the book. :( But I was happy with Neville and Luna. :3

    Otherwise, it was wonderful and I’m happy with my Harry Potter themed 3D glasses.

  • Anonymous

    well, no surprises there! Don’t know why the twi-hards think it will beat hp as part 1 is just the marriage and getting pregnant, and part 2 is the so-called “battle” (which i call a huge stand-off) that will last 27 minutes of the film. Sure the book may be big but the stuff in there does not make it enough to be split into 2 films.

  • Untouchable

    well duh..it’s only natural

  • sahina91

    i used to be a Twihard….until i got annoyed by the whole series. Breaking Dawn was an epic fail. story leading to a huge fight yet it turns into a talking stand-off. still don’t understand why it’s being split into 2 films. even i could have fit it into a 2 hour and 30 minute film.

    i’m even ashamed of myself for saying that twilight was better than HP back then, and i was a HUGE HP fan.

    i still see the films (only once in the cinema) and i can’t be asked reading the books (which i can’t get rid of as they were given to me for my 18th Birthday)

    anyways, congrats to HP on this record.

    Twilight is about “love” and how important it is to have a boyfriend and shit like that. It’s not even real love if you’re gonna fall for another one the moment your bf is gone. (And yes I’ve read all four books.)Harry Potter on the other hand, is REALLY about love and not just being in love, but love for family and friends. It’s about being strong and doing the right thing no matter what happens. It’s about making mistakes, not being perfect and shining in the sunlight. It’s about losing your way and finding it back. There are just too many messages to write.

    Harry Potter beats Twilight any day. Ask Stephen King.

    BOW DOWN TO HARRY POTTER. Twilight, in my opinion, sucks. Twilight can not compare when it comes to Harry Potter.

  • Anonymous

    why are people even comparing twilight and harry potter? twilight is about vampires and love and harry potter is about wizards and more about action. they don’t even compare.
    sure the twilight movies arn’t the greatest but no need to fucking bash it every moment you get.
    and for people saying of course it tops twilight its harry potter… well twilight beat the 7 other movies of harry potter… just saying… and it’s probably going to beat harry potter again in breaking dawn.
    and I don’t like either more than the other, I’m just stating the facts.

    Harry Potter > Twilight. Always. HP started off as a child book but JKR realizes that her readers is not for children as for well but for teens and adults. She progressed and making it suitable for everyone. JKR brought a whole new world of magic which allows the readers to expand their imagination. Harry Potter, you learn about the meaning of friendship, love, also facing your fears. Twilight…you learn the meaning how important to have a boyfriend is. I used to like twilight now i despise it.
