Who Needs A Release To Break Records? Final Harry Potter Doesn't!

| Filed under: Film FlickersHarry PotterTwilight

Harry Potter DH PT2 Records

The final Harry Potter film set to release this Thursday at midnight is already destroying records left and right — even ones that aren't specific ticket sales!

Check it:

3,000 3D locations (4,250 3D screens) - motion picture industry record

274 IMAX venues - another industry record

120 Premium Large Format cinemas - an industry record

270 drive-ins - an industry record

Holy shizz!

It'll be dropping into AT LEAST 3,800 theaters this Thursday night, expanding in at least 4,375 theaters and 11,000 screens on Friday.

And those numbers are still climbing with 48 hours to go.

Oh, did we mention these:

Already Warner Bros naticipates 300 Harry Potter marathons playing all seven of the movies ending at midnight Thursday with the 8th unreeling. There are 1,100 theaters planning to play HP 7A into 7B that midnight. "We are positioned to exceed the largest Harry Potter opening box office of all time," a Warner Bros top exec tells me confidently. Remember, it's already the largest-grossing franchise in motion picture history.

Remember that 48 hours to go? Yeah, those count towards the Fandango pre-sale tickets too — something which the final Potter already holds the record for top ticket seller of 2011. It's on its way to getting the #2 presale spot of all time in the 11 years Fandango has been around, and approaching the top-dog that is New Moon!

This is going to be one INtense weekend for everything Harry Potter! We can't wait to see how the movie does… and we can't wait to see the movie PERIOD!

Congrats to all involved!

    I was fortunate enough to go see it last night with a friend who is extremely lucky and was able to score us passes! It's the best one, in my opinion. Pleantu of emotions and action. Get your tissues ready! You'll love it.

    Saw it today it was amazing! Best one of them all. Lots of emotions, tragedy, actions but still had those funny moments. It was very dark mostly though. And sometimes quite violent. I don't think young kids should go see that one to be honnest.

    I've already seen in on wednesday, here in the Netherlands.. Best movie in the series! So sad it's all over

    I've seen all the films and still don't get the appeal. I can't keep one name straight from another. I watched Part 1 last night and realized Dumbledoor isn't a city. That's how much this franchise doesn't appeal to me. "Lord of the Rings" was soooo much better. I know I'm going to be razzed so start…. NOW!

    Seen it, loved it, cried. So sad it's over now, I know the books ended a long time ago but now we don't have the movies to look forward too.
    Loved the film, not disappointed at all, they had almost all of my favorite scenes that I wanted to see. The only thing I didn't like was the deaths and my that I mean the effect. Other than that it was perfect, the best one in the whole damn series.
