Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is a 2010/2011 two-part epic fantasy film directed by David Yates, written by Steve Kloves and based on the novel of the same name by J. K. Rowling. The film is produced by Rowling along with David Heyman and David Barron. The two parts form the seventh and final instalment in the Harry Potter film series, with the story following Harry Potter on a quest to find and destroy Lord Voldemort‘s secret to immortality – the Horcruxes. The film stars Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, alongside Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as Harry’s best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. The film also features Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham Carter and Alan Rickman.

Principal photography for both parts began on 19 February 2009 (2009-02-19) and was completed on 12 June 2010 (2010-06-12),[7] with the final day of reshoots on 21 December 2010 marking the franchise’s closure of ten years of filming.[8] Part 1 was released in IMAX formats on 19 November 2010, and Part 2 will be released in 3D, along with 2D formats, in IMAX on 15 July 2011 (2011-07-15).[2][9][10][11] The film will also be released with D-BOX motion code in select cinemas.

In its opening weekend at the North American box office, Part 1 grossed $125 million, breaking the record for the franchise’s largest opening, and became the second-highest grossing November opening , the second-largest opening of 2010 (behind Iron Man 2), and the sixth-highest of all-time.[12] Additionally, the film’s worldwide three-day opening of $330 million became the fifth-highest of all-time. With a worldwide gross of $952 million, Part 1 is the third-highest grossing film of 2010, behind Toy Story 3 and Alice in Wonderland.[13] It is the highest grossing Potter film in terms of foreign totals, surpassing Philosopher’s Stone,[14] 10th highest-grossing film of all-time and the second Potter film to cross $950 million worldwide.[15]



Further information: Plot of the novel

Part 1

 Minister Rufus Scrimgeour addresses the wizarding media stating that the Ministry of Magic will remain strong as Lord Voldemort gains power throughout the Wizarding and Muggle worlds. Severus Snape arrives at Malfoy Manor to inform Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters of Harry’s departure from No. 4 Privet Drive. Voldemort relieves Lucius Malfoy of his wand, as his own cannot be used to kill Harry.

Meanwhile, the Order of the Phoenix arrive at Privet Drive and escort Harry to safety using Polyjuice Potion to create six decoy Harrys. During their flight to the Burrow they are ambushed by Death Eaters, resulting in the deaths of Mad-Eye Moody and Hedwig. Voldemort attempts to kill Harry with Malfoy’s wand, but fails. At the Burrow, Harry has a vision of Ollivander being tormented by Voldemort, who claims that the wand-maker had lied to him by informing him of the only way to kill Harry: obtaining another’s wand.

Scrimgeour arrives at the Burrow and distributes items from Albus Dumbledore‘s will to Ron, Hermione and Harry. Ron receives Dumbledore’s Deluminator; Hermione, a copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard; and Harry is given the Golden Snitch. It’s revealed that Harry was also willed to receive the Sword of Godric Gryffindor, however Scrimgeour states that the sword is an important historical artifact and is not eligible to be given away.

Later, the wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour is disrupted by Death Eaters, who have infiltrated the Ministry and are using its authority to persecute Muggle-born witches and wizards. The trio disapparate to London and find sanctuary at No. 12 Grimmauld Place. There they discover that the “R.A.B.” from the false Horcrux locket is Regulus Arcturus Black, the younger brother of Sirius Black. From Kreacher, the Black’s house-elf, they learn that Mundungus Fletcher has stolen the real locket. Kreacher and Dobby apprehend Fletcher, who reveals that the locket is in the possession of Dolores Umbridge. Under the disguise of Polyjuice Potion, the trio infiltrate the Ministry and successfully retrieve the locket, escaping into the wilderness.

Unable to destroy the Horcrux, they take turns wearing it in order to dilute its negative psychological effects. Harry sees a vision of Voldemort interrogating Gregorovitch, a renowned wand-maker who claims that a teenage boy had once stolen the legendary Elder Wand from his shop. Voldemort then begins to search for the thief. While Ron wears the locket, he is overcome with the suspicion that Harry and Hermione are forming a relationship. As a result, he abandons them. Harry and Hermione then visit Godric’s Hollow where they seek Bathilda Bagshot, the historian who may have the Sword of Gryffindor which they believe will destroy Horcruxes. However, they are cornered by Voldemort’s snake, Nagini, and they barely escape. Hermione identifies the mysterious thief seen in Harry’s vision as Gellert Grindelwald.

When evening falls, Harry sees a doe Patronus and follows it to a frozen pond where he finds Gryffindor’s sword beneath the ice. Harry, with the locket around his neck, dips into the water to reach the sword. The locket attempts to drown him but Ron returns just in time to rescue Harry. Ron struggles to destroy the locket, but eventually overcomes its power, smashing it with the sword.

The trio then visit Xenophilius Lovegood to learn about a symbol seen several times on their journey. They learn that the symbol represents the Deathly Hallows: the Elder Wand, the Resurrection Stone and the Cloak of Invisibility. Lovegood then betrays them to the Death Eaters in an effort to have his kidnapped daughter returned. Among the chaos, Harry envisions Grindelwald telling Voldemort that the Elder Wand lies with Dumbledore. The trio are captured and taken to Malfoy Manor where Bellatrix Lestrange imprisons Harry and Ron in a wine cellar in which they discover Luna, Ollivander, and Griphook the goblin. Bellatrix tortures Hermione for information on how they found the sword, which was supposedly in Bellatrix’s vault at Gringotts. After Dobby apparates to save them, Harry duels with Draco and defeats him. After the short battle, Dobby is killed by Bellatrix in the process of escaping. Finally, Voldemort breaks into Dumbledore’s tomb and steals the Elder Wand.

Part 2

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is set to be released on 15 July 2011 in 3D and in 2D.

  • Oldman, GaryGary Oldman as Sirius Black, Harry’s godfather. Killed in battle two films earlier by Bellatrix Lestrange.[19]

  • Thompson, EmmaEmma Thompson as Sybill Trelawney, the divination teacher at Hogwarts.[21]

Joshua Herdman announced on 9 August 2009 (2009-08-09) that Jamie Waylett would not be reprising his role as Vincent Crabbe for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Waylett’s character would instead be written out and his role in the plot taken over by Herdman’s character, Gregory Goyle.[22]

Director David Yates has announced that, for the final scene in the film which is set nineteen years after the film’s main story, older actors will not be cast to play the main characters. Special effects will be used to depict the cast members as adults.[23]



The decision to divide Rowling’s final book into a two-part film came from the original declined proposal to split Goblet of Fire in 2004. Deathly Hallows was shot back to back,[24] and treated as if it were one film.[25] The idea to split the book into a two-part film had been around since the middle of 2007, but only came into serious consideration after producer David Heyman was able to talk to writer Steve Kloves when the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike ended and Heyman had Rowling’s approval.[25] Kloves started his work on the script for the second part in April 2009.[26]

According to Warner Bros. executive Alan F. Horn, it will allow “an extra hour and a half to celebrate what this franchise has been and do justice to all the words and ideas in the amazing story.”[24] Heyman described the workings behind the split: “Deathly Hallows is so rich, the story so dense and there is so much that is resolved that, after discussing it with J. K. Rowling, we came to the conclusion that two parts were needed.”[24] Kloves was not able to start work on the script until the WGA strike ended.[27]

Before David Yates was officially chosen to direct the film, others had expressed an interest in the job. Alfonso Cuarón, director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, had said that he would be tempted to return to direct.[28] Guillermo del Toro, who passed on Prisoner of Azkaban, had expressed interest in directing Deathly Hallows,[29] but an increased workload over the production of The Hobbit ruled him out of the project.[30]

Rowling was appointed producer on the two-part film, alongside David Heyman and David Barron.[31] Heyman noted that the films will be a closer recreation of the books than the previous films because of the length a two-part adaptation entails.[26] Daniel Radcliffe said: “This is a road movie, particularly in Part One of the film. People have been so used to seeing Harry Potter at Hogwarts and we’re just not there for the first part of the film. That seems to have really freshened things up, and hopefully will get people seeing the films with fresh eyes again, because it’s just a totally different look when you’re not just sat in the same room the whole time.”[26]

As maintained by producer David Heyman and director David Yates, Part 1 and Part 2 were treated as one film during production, but are ultimately two different films with separate tones and styles, connected only by the “linear narrative that runs through the middle”.[25][32] Yates commented on the contrast between the two parts, saying that Part 1 is a “road movie” and “quite real”, “almost like a vérité documentary”, while Part 2 is “much more operatic, colourful and fantasy-oriented“, a “big opera with huge battles.”[33][34][35][36]

Yates and Heyman have noted that some of the events of the seventh book had an effect on the way the sixth film was written.[37]


Pre-production began on 26 January 2009 (2009-01-26), while filming began on 19 February 2009 (2009-02-19) at Leavesden Studios, where the previous six instalments were filmed. Pinewood Studios became the second studio location for shooting the seventh film.[38][39] Bruno Delbonnel, the Director of Photography for the sixth film, opted not to work on Deathly Hallows, as he was afraid of repeating himself.[40] Therefore Eduardo Serra was chosen to be the cinematographer for Parts 1 and 2.[41] Director David Yates said that the film will be shot with “loads of hand-held cameras.” He stated, “I want to shake things up every time I go into this world. I like experimenting as we go along.”[42] In October 2009, Ralph Fiennes started filming his role as Lord Voldemort. Many of the adult actors also prepared for filming during that period.[43] The crew also shot on location, with Swinley Forest being the main outdoor filming area, along with the village of Lavenham in Suffolk[44] and the streets of the city of London.

On 26 March 2010 (2010-03-26), filming finished in Pinewood Studios. However, Leavesden Studios was still occupied for further filming.[45] The film in its entirety (Parts 1 and 2) was filmed over a one and a half year period throughout the United Kingdom and finished on June 12, 2010.[citation needed] Even though the shooting schedule was set at 250 days, the filming took 478 days to complete. Radcliffe, Grint, and Watson all openly wept on the last day,[46] which seemed to end their ten years of work on the films.[47] However, reshoots were confirmed to begin in the winter of 2010 for the epilogue scene which originally took place at King’s Cross Station. The filming was completed on 21 December 2010, marking the franchise’s official closure of ten years of filming.[48]

During production at Leavesden, Radcliffe’s stunt double David Holmes suffered a serious spinal injury during the filming of an aerial sequence, which left him paralysed. Holmes fell to the ground following an explosion which was part of the stunt.[49][50][51]


Stuart Craig, set designer for all of the previous Harry Potter films, returned for the final two parts. He commented, “Inevitably, the book has to be so condensed. There’s been a great deal of tolerance on the part of the public – at least I think so. I could be proved wrong, still.” On the wedding tent for Bill and Fleur’s wedding he said, “The wedding tent, where the reception is held, rather than make it an extension of the house, which is rather eccentric, homemade, we decided to make it rather elegant, … , It’s lined with silk and beautiful, floating candelabra. So it’s a nice contrast with the house.” For the Ministry of Magic set, he noted, “This is an underground world; this is a ministry, so we went to the real ministries, the Muggle ministries – Whitehall, in London – and decided that our magical ministry was kind of a parallel universe to these real ministries.”[52]


The costumes for Part 1 were designed by Jany Temime, who has been the costume designer on Harry Potter productions since Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004).[53] Temime has spoken about a key design: Fleur’s wedding dress. She says she “wanted it to be a witch wedding dress but not a Halloween dress. The dress is white but it needed to have something fantastic to it. So there is the phoenix [motif], the bird, which is a symbol of love in a way because there is rebirth, love never dies, it is born again.”[53] Temime has been accused of copying the wedding dress design from a similar dress from Alexander McQueen‘s Fall 2008 collection.[54]

Visual effects

After working on every film since Prisoner of Azkaban, Double Negative was asked to provide visual effects for the final instalments of the story, in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2. Working closely with the film’s VFX Supervisor, Tim Burke, the team was led by VFX Supervisor, David Vickery and VFX Producer Charlotte Loughlane. The main team also included 3D Supervisor, Rick Leary and 2D Supervisor, Sean Stranks.

Double Negative’s work for Deathly Hallows Part 1 included the corroding Warner Brothers logo and extensive environment extensions of the Burrows and its surrounds. Additional environment work was completed on Xenophilus Lovegood’s home, extending it in 3D and culminating in the Death Eater’s attack. Double Negative also advanced the Death Eaters’ smoke effects, with the introduction of the ‘flayed man’ stage in between their smokey, fluid, flying state and their live-action presence upon landing. Other work included the Patronus charm that interrupts a wedding party to inform the guests that Voldemort has taken over the Ministry of Magic.[55]

Also involved in the production was Framestore, the Oscar-winning visual effects company that produced the animated short, The Tale of the Three Brothers, directed by Ben Hibon in Part 1 as well as most of the creature CGI like in previous films such as Dobby or Kreacher.[56]


Composer Nicholas Hooper, who scored Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince, did not return for Deathly Hallows. Instead, Alexandre Desplat was hired to compose the score for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. Desplat composed throughout the summer of 2010 and the recording sessions began on 14 August with the London Symphony Orchestra. The supervising orchestrator on Deathly Hallows, Conrad Pope, (also one of the orchestrators on the first three Potter films) collaborated with Desplat and commented that the music is “exciting and vigorous” and “those who love melodies, harmonies and emotions in their film scores should be pleased. Reminds one of the old days.”[citation needed] The Part 1 soundtrack was released on 16 November 2010, three days before the film’s release date, while a special Collector’s Edition with bonus tracks and memorabilia was released on 21 December.[citation needed]

Composer of the first three films, John Williams, expressed interest in returning for Deathly Hallows if it fit his schedule. Director David Yates stated that he was eager to work with Williams on the score for Part 2, but it was not possible due to their conflicting schedules.[57] It was confirmed via the Warner Bros. website that Part 1 composer, Alexandre Desplat, was set to return for Part 2.[58][59] In an interview with Film Music Magazine, Desplat stated that scoring Part 2 is “a great challenge” and that he has “a lot of expectations to fulfill and a great deal of work” ahead of him.[60]

The trailer music for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows features two tracks, both from Brand X. Track one is called “The Sorcerer’s Secret” and plays on the first three teasers for the film, while the second track, “Never Surrender”, plays on the trailer for both parts.[61] The third trailer, which promotes only Part 1, features three new tracks: Amphibious Zoo’s “Ghost of War”, Position Music’s “Menace”, and finally from the Immediate Music company, “The End of Days”.[citation needed]


Part 1

The first official picture from the first film was released on 1 December 2009 (2009-12-01), showing Harry, Ron and Hermione in a London street.[citation needed] A clip from the film was leaked on 4 December 2009 (2009-12-04) and was officially released on 8 December 2009 (2009-12-08) with the release of Half-Blood Prince on Blu-ray and DVD.[62] The film is set to release on DVD on 11 April 2011.

At the 2010s ShoWest convention, Alan Horn premiered unfinished footage from both Part 1 and Part 2 of the upcoming film.[63] The 2010 MTV Movie Awards premiered more footage from both parts of Deathly Hallows.[64] At the Cinema Expo event in Amsterdam on 23 June 2010, a trailer was shown along with a five minute preview of selected scenes.[65] On 28 June 2010, the first official trailer for both parts was released on the internet and also was previewed before The Twilight Saga: Eclipse when it was released on 30 June 2010.[66] During ABC Family‘s premiere of Huge, the 2½ minute trailer for Deathly Hallows was shown. Following the release of the official teaser poster,[67] ABC Family broadcast interviews and additional scenes from both parts during their Harry Potter weekend, which began on 8 July 2010.[68] Another trailer can be seen from Lego Harry Potter: Years 1–4.[69]

Deathly Hallows was represented at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con International event. Several props from the film, including the Elder Wand and Slytherin’s Locket, were on display.[70] Tom Felton was in attendance and introduced new clips from the film.[71] Warner Bros. International announced that a Harry Potter Movie Marathon would be held in various cities of Japan, accompanied by new exclusive Deathly Hallows footage on 11 August 2010.[citation needed] It was later found that there was no new trailer or footage from the film at the 11 August, Japanese event, but rather the featurettes which had been aired outside of Japan.[72]

During the season premiere of The Vampire Diaries on The CW, the first TV spot aired for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. It featured new dialogue from Voldemort, scenes of the Lovegoods’ home under attack from the Death Eaters and footage of Dumbledore’s ghostly apparition. Furthermore, a new trailer for solely Part 1 was approved in the UK.[73] The trailer was released on 22 September and is about 2 minutes and 25 seconds long, featuring several new scenes.[74]

On 29 September 2010, three character posters for Part 1 of Harry, Ron and Hermione were released via Yahoo! Movies.[75] The following day, a Part 1 cinema poster was released online featuring the trio on the run in a forest.[76] Various other character posters for Part 1 were released on 6 October 2010, featuring Harry, Ron, Hermione, Lord Voldemort, Bellatrix Lestrange, Severus Snape and Fenrir Greyback.[77]

On 12 October, four new character posters were released featuring Harry, Ron, Hermione, Bellatrix, Lucius Malfoy, Fenrir Greyback and Scabior.[78] The posters are set to the theme of “Don’t Get Caught”, “Trust No One”, and “The Hunt Begins”.

On 15 October 2010, tickets began selling on Fandango for the US release of Part 1, and on 19 October, a 50-second clip featuring never-before-seen footage was aired at the 2010 Scream Awards. On 16 October, the second TV spot was released on Cartoon Network during a premiere of Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster.[79] On 18 October 2010, seven new TV spots were released through the Warner Bros. YouTube channel featuring new footage.[80] On 25 October 2010, Yahoo! Movies released an exclusive featurette on the film featuring new shots. The trailer for this film was released 26 October 2010 and can be viewed at the Warner Brothers website.[81] On 30 October 2010 EW released two new featurettes, titled “Horcruxes” and “The Story” respectively, featuring huge amounts of never-before-seen footage. On the same day, the Warner Bros. Harry Potter website was updated to reveal twelve miniature clips from the film.[82]

On 3 November 2010, LA Times released an extended clip of Harry leaving the Burrow to find the Horcruxes: titled “No One Else Is Going to Die For Me”.[83] From 11 November to 14 November, ABC Family broadcast another “Harry Potter Weekend” with the first five Harry Potter films. Throughout the “Harry Potter Weekend”, they broadcast two new scenes. On 4 November 2010, a new clip was released from the Harry Potter Facebook page: titled “The Seven Potters”.[84] Two more were released for the next two days such as a scene depicting a cafe attack[85] and another taking place in Malfoy Manor.

Part 2

The Blu-ray Combo Pack release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 will feature a sneak peek at one of the opening scenes of Part 2.[86]

ABC Family aired a sneak peek during their Harry Potter Weekend on 17 March 2011. New scenes included Snape at Godric’s Hollow, Hogwarts’ protective shield being enforced, the Dragon escape at Gringotts along with interviews with Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, David Heyman, David Barron and David Yates.[87]


Part 1

On 26 August 2010, director David Yates, producers David Heyman and David Barron along with Warner Bros. president Alan F. Horn, attended a test screening for Part 1 of Deathly Hallows in Chicago.[88][89] The unfinished film gained rave reviews from test screeners, some of which labelled it “amazing and dark” and “the most perfect Harry Potter film”. Others expressed that the film faithfully adapted the novel, which led to an inheritance of the “book’s own problems”.[90]

Warner Bros. Pictures was originally going to release Part 1 of Deathly Hallows in 2D and 3D formats. However on 8 October 2010, it was announced that plans for a 3D version of Part 1 had been scrapped. “Warner Bros Pictures has made the decision to release “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1” in 2D, in both conventional and IMAX cinemas, as we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window. Despite everyone’s best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality.” Part 2, however, will still be released in 2D, 3D and IMAX formats.[91]

The world premiere for Deathly Hallows: Part 1 was held in Leicester Square in London on 11 November 2010, with fans from across the world turning up – some of whom had camped for days in the square. This was followed by the Belgian avant-premiere on 12 November and the U.S. premiere in New York City on 15 November.[92]

Just 48 hours prior to the official North American launch of Part 1, the first 36 minutes of the film were leaked on the internet.[93] Even before the leak, the film was already the fifth-biggest generator of advance ticket sales in history, after selling out 1,000 cinemas across the United States.[94] Despite widely circulating rumours that the leaked footage was a marketing ploy to generate hype for the movie release date, no screener discs had been created by Warner Bros., and executives called it “a serious breach of copyright violation and theft of Warner Bros. property”.[95]

In Australia, the film had its premiere on 13 November at Warner Bros. Movie World, located on the Gold Coast, Queensland. Three hundred people attended the viewing, which was the second official showing in the world, behind the UK premiere. The film premiered in Kuwait’s release on 16 November. In Israel, Estonia and New Zealand, the film was released on 18 November.

The first part was released across countries on 17 November 2010, with other countries to follow, while the second part will be released worldwide on 15 July 2011, eight months after Part 1.

Part 1 played in 3,700 theatres at midnight. Nationwide, it was held in 4,125 theatres and 239 IMAX theatres, where it held the record for the largest release of IMAX theatres of all-time.[96]

Critical response

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 received positive reviews. Film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports that 79% of critics gave the film a positive review based on 237 reviews, with an average score of 7.1/10. The consensus is “It can’t help but feel like the prelude it is, but Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is a beautifully filmed, emotionally satisfying penultimate installment for the Harry Potter series.”[97] On Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100 based on reviews from critics, the movie currently has a score of 65 (citing “generally favourable reviews”) based on 41 reviews.[98] The film scored 87/100 from professional critics at the Broadcast Film Critics Association.[99]

Among other reviews, Variety gave the film a positive rating, stating, “[…] Having made it this far, the Potter faithful won’t be deterred by “Part 1’s” bleak, inconclusive tenor, spelling phenomenal returns and raising expectations for a truly spectacular finish.”[100] The UK’s Daily Telegraph also gave the film a positive review, remarking, “For the most part the action romps along, spurred by some impressive special effects,” adding, “It’s just slightly disappointing that, with the momentum having been established so effectively, we now have to wait until next year to enjoy the rest of the ride.”[101] Roger Ebert awarded the first part three out of four stars, praising the cast and calling it “a handsome and sometimes harrowing film… completely unintelligible for anyone coming to the series for the first time”.[102] Scott Bowles of USA Today called it, “Menacing and meditative, Hallows is arguably the best installment of the planned eight-film franchise, though audiences who haven’t kept up with previous chapters will be hopelessly lost”, while Lisa Schwarzbaum of Entertainment Weekly likewise praised the film as “the most cinematically rewarding chapter yet.” In a review for the Orlando Sentinel, Roger Moore proclaimed Part I as “Alternately funny and touching, it’s the best film in the series, an Empire Strikes Back for these wizards and their wizarding world. And those effects? They’re so special you don’t notice them.” However, Newsweek had a negative review in its 15 November issue, saying that “They’ve taken one of the most enchanting series in contemporary fiction and sucked out all the magic…while Rowling’s stories are endlessly inventive, Potter onscreen just gives you a headache.”[103]

However, the film did receive some less than positive reviews. In particular, the decision to divide the final book in the Harry Potter seriers into two films led some to question the motives of the movie studio. [104] Critics alleged that the book could have been encompassed within one film. This led acclaimed film critic, Roger Ebert to quip “No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.”[105]

Box office

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 grossed $24 million in North America during its midnight showing, beating the record for the highest-grossing midnight gross of the series, previously held by Half Blood Prince, which grossed $22.2 million.[106] The film also had the third-highest midnight gross of all time, behind The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which grossed $30 million and $26.3 million, respectively.[107] However, the film broke the record for the highest midnight gross in IMAX, with $1.4 million in box office sales, surpassing Eclipse, which grossed $1 million.[108]

In North America, the film grossed $61.7 million on its opening day, marking the fifth highest single day gross of all-time.[109] However, it became the highest opening day for a Harry Potter film in the series, a record previously held by Half-Blood Prince with $58.2 million. The film grossed a total of $125 million in its opening weekend, marking the largest opening for the franchise, previously held by Goblet of Fire which grossed $102.7 million,[110] as well as the second biggest November opening ever behind The Twilight Saga: New Moon’s $142.8 million,[111] the sixth biggest weekend opening for a film of all-time at the North American box office,[112] and the second biggest opening weekend for a 2010 film in the United States and Canada behind Iron Man 2‘s $128.1 million.[113] The film stayed at the top of the box office for two weeks, grossing $75 million over the five day Thanksgiving weekend, bringing its total to $219.1 million.[114]

In the UK, Ireland and Malta, the film broke records for the highest Friday gross (£5.9 million), Saturday gross (£6.6 million), and Sunday gross (£5.7 million).
