Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 made an astounding $61.2 million domestically in its opening day on Friday.

The film garners the fifth spot for biggest opening day, behind The Twilight Saga: New Moon with $72.7 million, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at $68.5 million, The Dark Knight at $67.2 million and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen at $62 million.
The Harry Potter films have earned $5.5 billion worldwide in theatrical revenue since its debut in 2001.
Very impressive! Wonder if Part 2 will beat this!
