#1 in July 15th Weekend’s box-office turned out to be, unsurprisingly, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the final film in the Harry Potter series. What may be a bit of a surprise to some is the massive opening the film had: $92.1 million in the U.S. and Canada on Friday, followed by $44.2 million on Saturday and an estimated $33.6 million on Sunday. Friday’s earnings ensured the film’s record for best single-day box-office, best Friday box-office and biggest 3-day weekend ever with $168.5 million (beating out Dark Knight’s $158.4 million).

Internationally, the Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 fared just as well, earning $307 million, and easily becoming the biggest international opening weekend of all time, beating out Pirates Of The Caribbean 4’s $260.4 million. Worldwide, the film earned a total of $475.5 million, setting another record and beating out yet another Harry Potter film: Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince with $394 million.

Not only are the numbers great, but critics are loving the movie just as much - it earned an overall Cinemascore of A. Check out the trailer for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 below:

Though Harry Potter pushed Transformers to the #2 spot, the film is still holding strong and has now earned a total of $302.8 million (the first film of the year to earn $300 million at the domestic box-office). Speaking of the $300 million range, Cars 2 has earned that ($311.9 million exactly) in global accumulation.

The other film in its opening weekend, Winnie The Pooh, didn’t open so well, despite it’s good reviews on both CinemaScore (A-) and its 91% on Rotten Tomatoes. The film earned just $8 million all weekend and came in at #6.
