New Jack City: HARRY POTTER Enjoys Record-Breaking Midnight Start!

If last nights (actually this morning’s – 12:01 a.m.) Midnight Shows are any indication, then HARRY POTTER 6 is well on its way to becoming the biggest boy wizard—make that TEEN-Wizard–adventure yet!

According to early boxoffice estimates, HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE established a new bewitching hour record with $20 million in ticket sales.

Compare that to last year’s THE DARK KNIGHT midnight kick-off which brought in $18 million—and Harry’s last big-screen outing (ORDER OF THE PHOENIX in 2007) which premiered at midnight with $12 million.

But HOW does Harry compare to this summer’s TRANSFORMERS 2 juggernaut?

Very well! Thanks for asking.

TRANSFORMER 2’s midweek-midnight premiere runs hauled in $16 million.

So Hail Harry as the new Midnight CHOSEN ONE!

    The news keeps telling us that we’re all broke. Yet people cough up $ 20 Mil for midnight kid shows. Where are our priorities?
